Benefits of Testing
Licensed Producers test cannabis products for cannabinoid content (potency), which allows for proper dosing. Without dosing and safety testing, it is impossible to determine what is needed for specific patients.
For good practices, Licensed Producers should test for:
With respect to the medical potential of the cannabis, CBD may hold the most promise for many serious conditions. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is believed to reduce the psychoactive effect of THC.
Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
CBDA, similar to THCA, is the main constituent in cannabis that has elevated CBD levels. THCA and CBDA hold most of the anti-inflammatory properties that cannabis has to offer.
A psychoactive cannabinoid that comes about from the degradation of THC, there is usually very little CBN in a fresh plant. CBN potentiates the effects of THC. The degradation of THC into CBN is often described as creating a “couch lock” effect.
The most abundant and widely known cannabinoid in marijuana, THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the main psychoactive effect familiar to patients. The compound is a mild analgesic and cellular research has shown it also has antioxidant activity. THC is believed to interact with parts of the brain normally controlled by the endogenous cannabinoid neurotransmitter anandamide.
Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA)
THCA is the main constituent in raw cannabis. THCA converts to D9-THC when burned, vaporized, or heated for a period of time at a certain temperature. THCA possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative (inhibiting the cell growth in tumorous cancer cells), as well as anti-spasmodic properties.
