When it comes to cannabis, THC levels can vary greatly. Generally, anything above 18% is considered high THC, and this is usually indicated on the label when you buy cannabis from a dispensary or seed bank. High THC levels can produce a more intense effect, but they can also cause adverse reactions such as paranoia, nausea, and anxiety. A cannabis product is said to have a high THC level when its concentration is greater than 15%.
However, this can vary depending on the individual. Concentrates such as shatter, wax, and dabs can have more than 80% THC. Hybrids are the result of crossing Sativa and Indica strains, which often results in a combination of the best of both worlds. Hybrids are highly effective in treating various diseases due to their natural cannabinoid and terpene properties.
For example, the “Girl Scout Cookie” strain has 0.09-0.2% CBD and between 17 and 28% THC. The higher the THC numbers, the greater the effects of the product. Therefore, it is important for cannabis users to understand safe THC levels and what is considered high THC in order to meet their needs.
