Any substance you can ingest should be regulated and labeled to ensure quality. And then companies can bribe politicians to change the laws so that, for instance, "chocolate" can have no actual cocoa in it.

If the Feds want to regulate the labeling, it has to be legalized at the Federal level.

Admittedly, I am a non-user, but my conversations with users make me think 99% of the appeal is THC/CBD levels, with smells and "vibes" being for a small minority.  Just like alcoholic beverages where ABV % is second only to cheap.

I liked it in MD where they listed the terpine content. Made it easy to tell average products from great products.

I prefer the THC to be above 20%, but after that, strain genetics play a big role in my choices. Some cannabis gives me anxiety, so I learn to avoid those.

I've been finding my favored strains all high a big (3-4%) difference in total cannaboids to thc/thcA totals. That difference is often terpenes and I'm enjoying them more.

They only buried the lede three-fourths of the way down this time.

Some strains, such as one called White Tahoe Cookies, were surprisingly consistent from product to product, while others, such as one called Durbin Poison, were "consistently inconsistent," said Jikomes.

"There was actually more consistency among strains than I had expected," he said. "That tells me that the cultivators, at least in some cases, may not be getting enough credit."


IOW, popular strains are more likely to be mislabeled (fetch me my fainting couch), and the lack of rules is less of a problem than some people seem to think it is.

I have to track down the growers of my favorite unavailable strain before they disappear from the internet. Blueberry Essence. Not a recreational strain. I met a rep 7 or 8 years ago at the madness that was a pretty illegal cannabis farmers market (think a WA state medical operation that allowed growers and middle men to set up consignment thrift market stands in a dumpy South Seattle commercial space). Lower THC, higher CBD, blueberry somewhere in the genetics. It was wellness weed. Interfered with nothing cognitive except anxiety, good for pain and inflammation, mildly mood elevating, relaxing but not sedating. It made me feel like I was 20 years younger but less angry. The grow rep was a weed nerd and that biz was absolutely into testing and analysis. I'd like to get some of their terpene test results since the strain seems always unavailable everywhere nowadays

Gotta love the internet. Looks like they dissolved in 2019 but Google says they're open today.

That's what was in the 1-3 gram sample sent to the lab for analysis.

The name of the game for commercial growers is to get the best numbers back from the lab.

These results are then put on all product derived from the entire plant.

Huge difference between the top colas of a plant and the bottom popcorn buds, but both will have same lab results based on small sample size of premium flower.

Edibles not so much since it's tested for total mg of THC.

A commercial grower growing 1,000 plants from clones vs seed will produce enough flower to supply the market with consistent product for a long time.

In Michigan there are tons of dispensaries, but relatively few commercial growers.

The dispensaries often are selling the exact same product since they are buying from the same source

Christ, I knew Google Maps is a better Yellow Pages than it is a map (it's damn near unusable for navigation and it's entirely down to poor data quality) but I'm a little surprised to hear it also sucks at the only thing it's meant to be good at.
