When it comes to vaping THC oil, most cartridges should contain between 70 and 90% of the compound. Anything above or below that range is likely cut with some type of filler or is unsafely overprocessed. The average percentage of THC in the herb is around 20%, which you can easily find out by checking the menu at a dispensary. A lower THC content, usually around 10%, can be offset by a higher percentage of CBD.
The label on cannabis products will show you the THC percentage, helping you to determine its potency level. Generally, a higher level of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) produces a more intoxicating effect. However, too much of it can cause adverse effects such as paranoia, nausea and anxiety. A cannabis product is said to have a high THC level when its concentration is higher than 15%.
To give you an example, White Widow strain has 13% THCA and 2% THC as a percentage of dry weight. If this strain hasn't degraded over time, the total level of THC that the user can access is around 65-95%. These side effects are usually mild with a low percentage of THC and moderate with a very strong THC level. It's important to note that the percentage of THC simply means the total amount of THC in a product.
Consumers and even children may mistakenly believe that a flower containing 22% THC has 22 milligrams of THC per gram of flower. Sunlight and heat transform THC into cannabinol (CBN), its non-psychoactive equivalent, and CBN is more like CBD, unlike THC. So how much is too much THC and what do the percentages actually mean for your expectation? US federal law states that CBD products must have a THC level lower than 0.3%, and full-spectrum cannabis products can have a THC level as low as 5% and reach up to 25%. For cannabis edibles, experienced consumers should take approximately one gram of oil with about 700 mg of THC.
Although a higher percentage of THC may be a sign of higher quality cannabis, strains with a lower percentage may be just as excellent. It's difficult to determine the percentage of THC in vaping cartridges without talking about the different types of oil. The cannabis business needs to learn more about accessible THC, dosage and how to create a table of usable THC percentages.
