Complete Guide To Measure Cannabis

Cannabis is becoming more and more popular every day, as people learn about the amazing benefits that it can offer. But with this increasing popularity comes an increasing need for information about how to measure cannabis. 

What are the different ways to measure THC and CBD levels? How accurate are they? And what do they mean for you? In this blog post, we will explore all of these questions and give you the information you need to make informed decisions about the cannabis products you use.

How to measure cannabis?

There are a few different ways to measure the THC and CBD levels in cannabis. The most common way is to use a process called gas chromatography. This process involves passing cannabis through a machine that separates the different molecules based on their size and weight. The THC and CBD molecules are then collected and measured.

Another way to measure THC and CBD levels is by using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). This process also separates the molecules based on size and weight, but it uses a different method to do so. As a result, HPLC is generally considered to be more accurate than gas chromatography.

Finally, you can also measure THC and CBD levels using mass spectrometry. This process involves vaporizing the cannabis and then measuring the molecules that are created. Mass spectrometry is generally considered to be the most accurate method of measuring THC and CBD levels, but it is also the most expensive.

What do cannabis measurements mean?

Now that you know how THC and CBD levels are measured, let’s take a look at what those numbers actually mean. THC levels are typically expressed as a percentage of the total weight of cannabis.

For example, if a cannabis product contains 20% THC, that means that there is 200mg of THC in every gram of cannabis.
