Understanding Cannabis Lab Test Methods & Results

      • Cannabis testing has become incredibly popular but many patients are unsure about what the results mean. It can be confusing for a new patient to determine which cannabinoid profile will best suit their needs. When you look at the products available at a collective, you see that the cannabinoid profiles can be vastly different.
      • It’s difficult to find a starting point when you have no clue what you need. Overall, the ratio of cannabinoids is the most important thing to look at. It’s believed that a 1:1 ratio between cannabidiol(CBD), and THC is ideal. The other cannabinoids, like tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), and cannabichromene(CBC), have distinct effects to be considered as well.
      • When used correctly, the percentages can serve as a reference point to determine a patient’s preferred dosage of cannabinoids. Consider that 1g is equal to 1,000 mg. Therefore, 1g of flower that tests at 12.5% THC, and 12.5% CBD, contains 125 mg of each cannabinoid.
      • When provided a full cannabinoid & terpene profile of a strain, a patient can better determine which strain profile would be most effective for suiting their particular needs.
