redient is in low
levels but does contribute to the high. When we mention THC levels,
we are talking about both delta 8 and 9 THC.
There are also other ingredients that add to the high such as
CBD, CBN, THCV, CBDV, CDC and CBL, but are only very minor
compared to THC.
The difference between THC levels and THC quantities is that
THC levels are genetic. They are not under the influence of the
grower. THC quantities on the other hand are. This is to do with bud
mass and how much resin can be generated in that bud mass.
Some bud may only contain 20% THC, with a THC level of 5.
The same plant grown under better conditions and light will produce
70% THC, with a THC level of 5. The ‘5’ is genetic. The quantities of
20% and 70% are under the grower’s control.
When examining a strain in a seed-bank catalogue one is
guided to check for the THC levels of that plant to understand how
potent the plant is. Many seed sellers and breeders measure their
plants THC levels and give accounts on how much THC their plants
have. Of course many breeders like to exaggerate on how much THC
their plants produce, but some do not. If you wish to know more about
THC levels it is best to consult your seed-bank or breeder for details.
No complete study of cannabinoids has been made public
since this book’s publication. This is because cross breeding produces
so many different results that it is hard to keep track on what is
happening. Some 'old timer' strains are still around and have been
tested. This information can be obtained from the larger seed
production companies in Holland. THC testing is also an expensive
process that requires heavy amounts of research.
The other interesting factor is that some plants do not produce
any THC at all. These plants have been genetically engineered (GM)
to produce very low levels of THC and are mainly used by farmers in
some countries who have permission to grow cannabis for hemp
production ONLY. It is best to keep away from these seeds and strains.
They will not get you high. There is project called the PMP (potency
monitoring project) that is carried out by some government-funded
agencies, but the results are questionable.
The other thing that may interest you is that Cannabis can be
cured in various forms and one of these popular forms is HASHISH
Figure 1.10 - This is some raw hash extraction by Kryptonite. This
hash is pure without any additives.
Hashish can also be graded and one of the most famous
grades of Hashish is called Zero Zero. Hashish making (Figure 1.11)
can improve (but sometimes degrade) the overall potency of marijuana.
The grades of Hashish are as follows. 00(zero zero), 0, 1, 2, 3. Zero
Zero is by far the most purest form of Hashish on the market today and
comes from plants that have high levels of THC in conjunction with a
good Hash making technique. Sometimes the technique may be good
but the levels of THC in the plant are low. This
comparisons may perform such analyses himself from the percentage data presented for each item. Only
slight errors will result from using percentages rather than the raw data I worked from.
The background information on the first page of the questionnaire was used to divide the users into a
number of groups, and every question was subjected to a chi-square analysis for differences in the
distributions among the groups. Only significant (p < .05) differences are presented in the text.
The groups compared were as follows:
Males versus females. Forty-nine percent of the users were men, 27 percent women. The remainder
were not used in male-female comparisons because this question was inadvertently left off some of the
Older and younger users were defined as those 25 years of age or older versus those from 16 to 24.
Educational Level was compared for the College-educated (at least some college up to and including
bachelor's degree or equivalent) versus the Professionals (graduate training or master's or doctor's
degrees). The users with only a high school education were too few (6 percent) to constitute a group for
valid analysis and so were omitted from the educational level comparison.
Frequency of use of marijuana in the last six months was broken into three groups: the Occasional user
("occasional" or "less than once/month" on the questionnaire), the Weekly user ("once/week or more"),

and the Daily user ("almost every day or more"). With a three-way classification, it was found that some
of the frequency and intoxication level categories had to be combined to avoid having too many cells with
low expected frequencies for the chi-square tests,3 so all analyses with three-way classifications were
done against frequencies of Never, Rarely/Sometimes, and Very Often/Usually. Similarly, levels were
uniformly condensed into Just, Fairly/Strongly, and Very Strongly/Maximum.
Because a given degree of marijuana use in the last six months might mean different things for one user
who had followed that pattern for ten years and for another who had used it for just one year, a three-way
analysis was also made for total marijuana use. Categories were Heavy Total users, Moderate Total users,
and Light Total users. These categories were obtained in the following way. Using the number of uses per
month as a basic unit, the self-rated frequency of use over the user's whole use-history was assigned the
value of 20/month ("almost every day or more"), 8/month ("once/week or more") or 2/month ("once/
month or more" plus "occasionally"). Total length of time in years that the users had used marijuana was
weighted as I for one year or less, 2.25 for three years or less, and 6 for more than three years.
The combinations of these weightings are shown in Table 5-2. They fell into three natural groupings,
which were designated the Heavy (21
