Everyone’s been talking about how the marijuana today is stronger than what our parents smoked. But what exactly does that mean?
Specifically it refers to the fact that today, THC levels often hover somewhere around 30% whereas back in the day, they rarely exceeded 10%. But why is this happening and what are the implications?
There are a couple factors, but the roots all lie in decriminalization of cannabis and advent of medical marijuana; pain relief requires a notably higher potency than recreational consumption.
