THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG and about 80 other chemicals are all in a class of compounds known as cannabinoids, found in abundance in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are responsible for many of the effects of cannabis consumption and have important therapeutic benefits.
The amount of THC and CBD in concentrates such as Hash and Kief can very greatly.
The variation in the amount of active compound is the result of two main factors
The bottom line, the higher quality the strain, the amount of flower versus leaf, the extent to which plant material is excluded and how much you leave it exposed to the air control the quality of concentrates.
It’s all about sample preparation
When it comes to medicinal cannabis testing, the quality of the test is completely dependent on the quality of the sampling from harvest to lab.
It starts with the grower. A sample that represents the product as a whole must be selected. This means:
It continues at the collective and the lab. Utensils are kept scrupulously clean between sample preparations to ensure no cross-contamination.
Highly accurate analytical balances are used to weigh the samples to ensure a precision result
Samples are extracted in containers certified for cleanliness using solvent certified for purity.
The mix of cannabinoid (THC vs. CBD) in a plant is the result of heredity.
The total amount of cannabinoid (THC+CBD+CBN+CBC+CBG+etc) in a plant is the result of how well it is grown and stored.
The genes that are responsible for the production of THC and CBD affect how one another are expressed in the final flowering plant.
It appears that a single gene dictates whether a plant produces THC or CBD.
In hemp strains, the CBD form tends to predominate, so the primary cannabinoid in hemp is CBD. By contrast, drug strains of marijuana have been selected over centuries of breeding for the THC gene.
