THC Strain List
With all the different seeds is there a way to obtain a list of them with the percent of THC in each strain? I’m really looking for a list that has both but if I need to obtain 2 separate lists that’s okay, too.
I wish! THC content is tested and measured with a gas chromatography, a precision machine common in sophisticated laboratories. Each test costs about $50 US. Dutch companies did not publish the THC content of their strains for many years because they did not want to appear to be selling drug cannabis. Finally, Dutch Passion started publishing the THC content of his strains in his catalog and many others followed suit. But remember that THC content can fluctuate immensely depending upon the way, location on the plant and time the sample is taken. Obviously the sample should be from the most resinous mature part of a bud available. Also, a strain from one seed company seldom has the same THC content as a strain of the same name supplied by another company. Personally, I would not be inclined to believe the listed THC content listed unless the company can prove that the analysis was completed by a registered lab and provide documentation.
Every year at the High Life Fair in the Netherlands, Canna sets up their gas chromatography and analyzes cannabis samples from show participants. If you have a sample to analyze, you can get it done at the next fair. Check www.highlife.nl for details.
