Marijuana can be a confusing subject if you are new to the plant.

As people continue to explore what this group of plants is capable of, both through clinical research and personal experimentation, the demand for more specific products has exploded.

It’s Not All About THC Percentage

If you’re a newer cannabis user, chances are you look at one of a strain’s properties more than any other to determine its effects. What’s that trait? THC percentage, of course!

Understanding What You’re Buying And What Lab Results Mean

Cannabis may be legal in some states, but it is still highly regulated. Any cannabis product that you purchase from a licensed facility will be lab-tested as part of the legal requirements. These tests tell you important details about that particular batch of cannabis if you know how to read it.

So in this time of legal weed sold in an illegal manner, where customers can choose to buy what they like, what separates black market marijuana from the legal stuff? Quality…
