Cannabis labels can be confusing, but understanding them is essential for getting the most out of your marijuana products. This guide will help you make sense of the numbers, dates, and percentages found on THC labels. Some labels may indicate the total number of cannabinoids present in the strain. This number includes all THC, CBD, and any other cannabinoids that may be present.
Total THC gives you an estimate of the highest THC potential available given the weight of the product, but this is not a 100% conversion because part of the THC is destroyed during heating. The dates found on the labels are self-explanatory. They're there to help you make sure you have the freshest, highest-quality herb. You can find dates for everything from harvest to testing, packaging and expiration.
The next piece of information you'll find on a label is the actual weight of the marijuana product. Knowing your weight can be useful because it can help you determine the dose that works best for you, regardless of the product you're using. It's also important because Michigan currently limits the amount of cannabis you can buy and transport at any given time. When you see the percentage of THC on a label, it's actually a measure of the amount of THC present relative to the other cannabinoids in the product.
This percentage can help you determine how potent a particular strain is and how it might affect you. Reading THC labels can be intimidating at first, but with a little practice it becomes second nature. Knowing what to look for and what each piece of information means will help you make informed decisions about your cannabis purchases.
