THC levels in Marijuana?

Discussion in 'Marijuana News' started by EvanThomasD, Nov 28, 2011.

  1. Ok, so I've read that over the last 50 years or so the THC levels in pot has gone from something like 2-5% to 15-20%. Anyone know if this increase in THC could be potentially harmful if it continues rising?

    no, it just means you get higher from less, ie to get to the level your comfortable at you just have to pace better. think of it like hash which is 100% thc (not really but close) stronger just means it easier to get baked. and i think the level you need to reach to od on thc is so absured you basicly have to iv a thc\saline mix.

    also isnt the average like 12%?

    anyways im more interested in the arival of high CBD strains and there potential medical use. and research potential. (i sould spell check but lazy atm)
  3. Not really. If anything it's healthier cause you need to smoke less. Also most of the increase just comes from better growing techniques like keeping the females from getting pollinated and stuff. The only real issue is newb smokers getting freaked out from having too much and not knowing how powerful it is.
  4. So if I were to
    1 gram of 5% THC cannabis
    Is the high different than if I were to use 2 grams of 2.5%THC cannabis or Half a gram of 10% weed.
    I've just always wondered this.
  5. ok a liddle diging gave this responce.

    "No. There has never been a documented case of marijuana overdose.

    In order for a human to consume enough marijuana to be fatal, they would have to consume nearly 40,000 times the amount of THC required to intoxicate them. In contrast, it only requires about 5 to 10 times the amount of alcohol required to intoxicate, to be fatal. For example, if it requires 3 beers to intoxicate you, it only requires 15 to 30 beers to kill you. However, if it takes you 3 'hits' of marijuana to intoxicate you, it would require 120,000 hits to kill you. Thus, it is virtually impossible to die of a marijuana overdose.

    Further, there is NO peer reviewed scientific evidence that shows that marijuana causes brain damage. There is NO peer reviewed scientific evidence that shows that marijuana damages the reproductive system. There is NO peer reviewed scientific evidence that shows that marijuana is a gateway drug.There is NO peer reviewed scientific evidence that shows that marijuana suppresses the immune system. "

    You see. That is the problem. "

    Can you overdose on marijuana if so how
  6. Thanks for the feedback guys. I just needed some info on this for a thing in school, and there are no books and not many sites about this particular subject.

  7. to be mean but this is probely one of the most talked about things on the web next to porn. norml has a bunch of info and links to medical articals about the subject.

  8. I meant like about the levels of THC not weed in general. I haven't been able to find anything on the levels of THC (mainly cause I'm lazy) so that's all.

    As long as prohibition enacts punishments based upon amounts possessed, whatever is prohibited will naturally become more potent, as dealers and consumers alike attempt to dodge stiffer penalties.

    Seriously, this is hardly a new concept. Prohibition of alcohol made moonshine extremely popular for this very reason. The prohibs are very aware of this fact, they just blow up the potency argument thinking they can startle morons with their bullshit.

    They are demonstrating blatant and intentional ignorance with these potency arguments. If any of you were to go out an purchase a bottle of grain, would you drink it like like you would beer? My guess is no. The concept of self-regulation is one that the prohibs are very aware of, though they don't mention it. You can witness it first hand at any drinking establishment in the world, where most people effectively drink to their point of preferred intoxication.

    As far as marijuana is concerned, you can only get so high. Unlike alcohol, you can consume marijuana in massive excess and you will only experience diminishing returns. No greater, harmful effects are recognized. As a former smoker of synth canns that are many times more potent than THC, I can tell you with utmost confidence that it does not benefit the average smoker to consume in excess.

    For economic reasons alone, people who buy more potent marijuana almost uniformly smoke it in lesser quantities over a greater period of time. Seriously, that shit is expensive! For the prohibs argument of greater potency equating to greater overall consumption of THC, we would have to see the potency increase while the price remains the same. Simple economics shows how deep they've layered their bullshit on this one.

    Also consider that THC is only one of over a hundred different canns in the cannabis plant. It's pretty asinine to only measure THC and not measure, for example, CBD. They also have yet to show that THC, or any cann for that matter, causes any lasting harmful effects whatsoever. They just take the fact that THC is bad for you as granted and then start rambling on about increased levels of consumption and the harms that might, possibly, could, perhaps, maybe occur. This is a completely crap argument.
