I used to be a craft beer fanatic.
All of us in our 20s were obsessed with getting unique beers from all over the country.
All of us weren’t upset about getting beer with the highest alcohol percentage, as it was more about the flavor and the unique effects that each variety would yield. Nowadays I have the same mindset about cannabis that I used to have about beer. I’m not anxious about finding cannabis with the highest THC amount, plus that’s for a host of different reasons. First of all, THC is not the only active component found in the cannabis plant. Some know about CBD, CBG, plus perhaps CBN plus CBC, however who knows about terpenes like myrcene plus limonene? Terpene profiles are unique to each strain plus account for the different subjective experience compared to a new strain. If you take 2 different batches of a single one, one batch might have less THC but a higher terpene percentage than the other batch. For me personally, I would rather take the batch with a lower THC satisfied if it meant more terpenes. The subjective experience is much better for me. Someone might chase a high THC level plus pass up amazing batches of the same strain because they’re not thinking about terpenes. This is why I don’t hunt THC levels with our cannabis purchases and would rather see a full lab result before buying something if I’m not able to see the products before I pay. Sadly in our state you can’t open your tins of cannabis flower products before leaving the store, which makes seeing a lab report all the more important if you’re trying to find exceptional batches of marijuana.
