Cannabis is planted for different purposes. For instance, the people who cultivate recreational marijuana target the highest THC strains in the market. Moreover, people with medicinal purposes plant high CBD strains. A successful growing of the marijuana plant owes a lot to genetics that it is formed of. THC count of the plant also depends on the Gene composition of the plant. For those who are new to the cannabis, THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol, a chemical compound responsible for the effect of euphoria. Tetrahyrocannabinol is one of the major ingredients in the cannabis plant.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is not intoxicating as THC. THC is psychoactive, meaning capable of changing the drug taker’s mental state by confusing the brain‘s function. In ancient civilizations such as the Assyrians communities consumed marijuana as a psychoactive substance during certain religious ceremonies.
Cannabinoids like THC operates together with Endocannabinoid System; and generate bodily sensations like appetite, pain sensations and mood. THC has a close attachment to the human brain function. It has the ability to generate neurotransmitters which cause the euphoria and elation.
How does THC intensify your brain and bodily function?
Consuming marijuana makes you feel stoned. The intensity of elation depends on the THC count. Depending on the genetics and conditions of the high-THC strains, you may experience relaxation or paranoia. These effects are also determined by the nature of the consumer too. THC’s other mental effects are as followed: heightened bodily sensations and experiences, loquacity, heightened brain activity and distorted time perceptions.
There are both risks and benefits of THC. Science has not reached definitive answers to decide whether cannabinoids is a viable medicine. The limited and insufficient number of research conducted so far on cannabinoids has some preliminary evidence about its beneficial effects.

Measuring THC level in Marijuana strains.
THC does not produce itself in raw cannabis. A chemical process called decarboxylation has to take place to trim down non-psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol acid in cannabis to THC. By calculating the content of the THC in cannabis in a lab, we can figure out its ‘approximate THC content’. The THC ratio does not sharply convert to THC ratio. Therefore the approximate amount of the THC is counted as a percentage against the total weight of cannabis.
Nonetheless, labs currently lack a proper equation to convert the THC content from THC amount. Thus the results from the conversions could be misleading. The current equation produces calculation based on ‘mass weight correction of 12%’, which is workable only under an ideal vacuum. While we can guarantee that the amount of THC composition is a reliable data to proceed to the calculation, the lack of an accurate standard method to perform the conversion is an issue. Yet the THC information is an important factor to consider before using any type of cannabis.
