Info: Dr. Grinspoon is a pure sativa heirloom strain from Amsterdam. It was named in honor of the Harvard professor and cannabis advocate, Lester Grinspoon, who set out to correct misinformed science in the 1970s. As if channeling the brilliance of Dr. Grinspoon himself, this sativa induces heightened cerebral activity and sensory awareness. Dr. Grinspoon buds grow like berries on twig stalks in unusually gapped popcorn formations. Patients with mood disorders, attention deficit, and chronic pain may find relief in the euphoric and invigorating experience that defines this legendary sativa. Also good for depression, stress, fatigue and sometimes headaches – but be aware that the invigorating effects can be quite strong so if that will RAISE your anxiety or stress then try a small amount first to judge the effect. Don’t roll a “fatty” the first time around.
Samples submitted included: Dr. Grinspoon cannabis flowers
Notes: 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)
