Info: Chemo Kush is an almost entirely indica strain with Chemo (or UBC Chemo) as a dominant parent crossed with an unknown kush. UBC Chemo was developed at the University of British Columbia in the 70’s to treat chemotherapy patients. With it’s rich earthy taste from parts of it’s indica genes, Chemo Kush is also very cerebral in effect from it’s sativa phenotypes. Potent and nicely balanced head and body effects. Good for nausea, appetite loss, pain and sleeplessness.
Sample submitted: “Chemo Kush” dried cannabis flowers.
Visual Inspection: Free from visible contamination and foreign matter.
Moisture Content: 3.5%
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)
