THC & CBD Testing

THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the major pharmacologically active component of marihuana and is responsible for the analgesic and psychotropic effects.   Effects of THC may include muscle relaxing, anti-epileptic, anti-emetic, appetite stimulating, bronchio-dilating, hypotensive, anti-depressant.  CBD, full name cannabidiol, the other major component of marihuana,  is a THC1 antagonistic.  It acts as a buffer to the psychoactive effect of THC.  Physiologically it is known as a smooth muscle relaxator and is sedative.

The testing on our strains is conducted with a patented and registered product certified by Leiden University, Netherlands.  It is done in full compliance of the guidelines of the World Health Organization concerning safety and qualty of medicinal plant material (WHO/PHARM.92.559)

Choosing a strain is a very personal matter.  What works for some may not work for others and vise versa.  When you find a strain that works for you, now there is a way to know what the composition of the cannabis is.  We hope this information will help our  members become more informed consumers. 

Test results are published in the catalog and in the handy guide "Strains at a Glance" which you'll find under Services.   Access to the catalog to make purchases is for Member's only.  To become a Member you must be of adult age and have a valid mailing address in Canada.
