Article for NCIA – THC – The Illusion of Its Value
A news article by Green Leaf Lab’s managing partner has been published on the National Cannabis Industry Association site, discussing if higher THC concentrations really make for a higher quality cannabis plant:
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Or perhaps more appropriate for today, “Don’t judge all cannabis products by THC percentage.”
As the cannabis industry continues to develop, we will see more medical and recreational marijuana states require testing on cannabis and cannabis products. This means that potency, and THC percentages, are readily available for patients and consumers. As many know, the trend is to obtain cannabis products with the highest THC potency. But is this really the best product? Is this really the best choice for the consumer? Is a single THC percentage even accurate? In answering these questions we shall look specifically to the regulated industries of alcohol and analytical testing.
