The THC content isn’t as important as the number of terpenes found in a batch of pot

I used to be a craft beer fanatic.

It was learned from all of my friends in my 20s who were obsessed with getting unique beer from all over the country. We weren’t worried about getting beer with the highest alcohol percentage, as it was more about the flavor and the unique effects that each variety would yield. Nowadays I have the same mindset about cannabis that I used to have about beer. I’m not concerned with finding cannabis with the highest THC content, and that’s for a host of different reasons. First of all, THC is not the only active component found in the cannabis plant. Some know about CBD, CBG, and perhaps CBN and CBC, but who knows about terpenes like myrcene and limonene? Terpene profiles are unique to each strain and account for the different subjective experience compared to a different strain. If you take two different batches of a single strain, one batch might have less THC but a higher terpene percentage than the other batch. For me personally, I would rather take the batch with a lower THC content if it meant more terpenes. The subjective experience is more enjoyable for me. Someone might chase a high THC level and pass up amazing batches of the same strain because they’re not thinking about terpenes. This is why I don’t chase THC levels with my cannabis purchases and would rather see a full lab report before buying something if I’m not able to see the products before I pay. Sadly in my state you can’t open your jars of cannabis flower products before leaving the store, which makes seeing a lab report all the more important if you’re trying to find exceptional batches of marijuana.
