For those who need higher doses and use faster acting ‘delivery’ methods to take their product. Bubble hash is not like the dense resinous hash from Asia that you may be familiar with. It is made using an ice water extraction process that basically strips the tricomes from the plant. It is hard or crumbly depending on how much it has been compressed and varies in strength depending on the strain used and the amount of plant matter still present. It can be added to cannabis joints or used in a pipe or other device. Like cannabis buds, it needs to be heated to convert the non-activated thc to a form the body can use.

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)
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)
