Do THC levels matter? Not as much as you might think.

THC is the “main ingredient” that gives your cannabis its kick. And as our budtenders will tell you, the question our team is asked most frequently is, “Which of your products has the highest THC percentage?”

But if you’re basing your purchasing solely on its THC levels, you could be missing out on some fantastic strains. It may seem like a higher percentage automatically means a better high, but that’s simply not the case.

Since every individual’s body chemistry is different, it makes sense that each strain will affect us differently. While a high-THC strain might make one person feel relaxed and euphoric, another who smokes the same strain might feel anxious and paranoid.

THC may be the primary cannabinoid in marijuana, but it’s far from the only one. Your endocannabinoid system, also know as your body’s supercomputer, will be affected differently by different strains. CBD, CBN and THC act like a lock and key into your brain’s receptors. So rather than focusing solely on THC levels, you should consider the way the cannabinoids all work together and the way they make you feel.

The more we learn about cannabis and how different strains can affect people, the better we can all fine-tune our user experience. Our budtenders at Cannabis City are always happy to share their knowledge and guide you to your greatest high yet.
