Strain Name: Charlotte’s Web (NOW WITH TWICE AS MUCH CBD!)
Nose: AAAA – sweet, sage, earthy and woody
Taste: AAAA– tastes earthy and mildly sweet – reminiscent of guava or some such fruit. Smoke is pretty easy on the lungs.
Burn: AAAA – Appears well flushed. White ash. Burns well.
Visual: AAA Mostly small to medium open buds with visible crystal and lots of twirly orange pistils. These buds are sticky! Stem snaps, product is dried properly
Info: The cloned version of Charlotte’s Web was specifically cultivated by Colorado breeders The Stanley Brothers for a young epileptic patient named Charlotte and had less than 0.3% THC. This is a phenotype of that popular strain that has more THC in it – closer to a 1:1 ratio although CBD is higher than THC. A fairly clear-headed relaxation is the common high. If you are a veteran THC smoker you may notice very little ‘high’ at all. This strain has gained popularity as an option for treating seizures as well as a range of other medical conditions. Charlotte’s Web may cause dizziness for some patients, so new users should be cautious. This is a new phenotype acquired in Jan 2018 and different from the Charlotte’s web we have carried previously. It has almost twice the CBD and is very sticky!
Sample submitted: “Charlotte’s Web” 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)
