Does the THC Percentage Reflect Strain Quality?

Although they may sound similar, THC percentage and ABV (alcohol by volume) are two very different measures of potency.

Paragraph Teaser

When people come in and look for flower, they look for the highest THC percentage. But that’s one of the last markers of a quality product. Here’s what should you look for:

  • Terpene profile
  • Plant stewardship
  • Grow area/location
  • Other ingredients/parentage

A flower’s THC percentage degrades over time, solidifying after it’s dried and cured. Unlike a cocktail’s ABV (alcohol by volume), a high THC percentage won’t yield a higher potency. Ask your budtender the questions above to determine what’s going to give you a better smoke.
