Info: Afghani CBD is a high CBD indica strain of the landrace indica Afghani grown by one of Canada’s licensed producers Tilray. Named after its geographic origin, Afghani CBD has very mild cerebral effects (due to a low THC content) but a relaxing therapeutic body stone to help with pain, insomnia and stress disorders. This strain was a 2015 Canadian Cannabis Award winner (second place) for the “Top Strains under 10% THC”.
Sample submitted: “CBD Afghani” cannabis flowers indica.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Moisture Content: 4.9%
Activated vs non-activated: activated cannabinoids are non-acidic (neutral) and are the form utilized by the human brain/ body. Activation occurs via heating (smoking, vaporizing, cooking). Cannabinoids in the natural plant are acidic (non-activated) and need to be converted to their neutral form in order to be utilized by the human body. Therefore one would expect fresh cannabis buds to contain mainly non-activated cannabinoids. Processed materials (baked goods, heated extracts) should be higher in the activated forms.
Absent Cannabinoids: if a cannabinoid or terpene is blank, it is not necessarily absent but below the limit of detection by the detector (usually less than 0.01%).
Cannabis Potency Summary Table:
Three tests of each sample were analysed and summarised below:
% by weight
THC-Acid (not activated)
*THC total (THC-Acid+THC)
CBD-Acid (not activated)
*CBD total (CBD-Acid+CBD)
CBG-Acid (not activated)
*CBG total (CBG-Acid+CBG)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
