Top Shelf flower is more expensive than a lot of others. Geek, Resin Ranchers, Archive, Seven Point- These guys are pretty exclusive who they work with and they charge more than everyone else, but it's the best. If you look at the same flower, it get's down to $55/$50 8th, and even cheaper when you buy by the oz. Sometimes these items go on sale, but typically, top shelf flower can get up to $16/$18.We really appreciate the feedback and that you like IVY!
