People don’t realize the importance of terpenes when evaluating the quality plus effects of 1 batch or strain of cannabis.
They’ve been told their entire lives that THC is the primary active compound in the cannabis plant, so they mistakenly suppose that THC levels are the only indicators of the quality plus potency of 1 batch of marjuana versus another.
In fact, the only reason the people I was with and I experience varying effects from 1 cannabis strain to the next is because of the terpenes present in the plant. Just prefer beer, cannabis is full of terpenes that have a synergistic effect with THC. Some cannabis strains have complex terpene profiles that are totally particular in the world of marijuana. With this in mind, I’d rather see a high terpene percentage in our batch of cannabis flower products rather than THC levels over 30%. You’ll believe “higher” from high terpene weed as well, even if the THC level is closer to 20% instead of 30%. With this in mind, terpenes are also to blame for why particular people get bad reactions from particular cannabis strains. For whatever reason, I haven’t had the best luck with the Girl Scout Cookies strain in all of the forms that I have tried it in. Unluckyly, there are a lot of popular cannabis strains on the market that are derived from the Girl Scout Cookies strain. This can make it hard to navigate through trying new varieties of cannabis if there’s a occasion of it retaining features from its parents strains. I wish I could respond well to every strain of cannabis, which would make our life much easier.
