Sample submitted: “Black Diamond” dried cannabis flowers.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
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
Δ9 THC (activated)
Δ8 THC (activated)
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)
CBV-Acid (not activated)
*CBV total (CBV-Acid+CBV)
Activated Cannabinoid Total:
•when reporting totals, acidic cannabinoids are multiplied by 0.877 to account for loss of mass from decarboxylation upon heating (activating)
