Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) & Cannabidiol (CBD) content in weed

So, “pure” sativa or indica strains are also probably fictions. Still, the scientific literature suggests that plants with more sativa ancestry have higher levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, than indica-dominant plants, which have higher levels of cannabidiol, or CBD. As for what these compounds do, many studies have shown basically the same thing: THC gets you high, and CBD does not. It’s not totally clear what CBD does to the brain, but a 2008 study showed that, in high doses, CBD and THC can work together, with CBD alleviating some of the anxiety reported after THC ingestion.
“We don’t really know if indica or sativa exist in their purest forms,” said Myles. “In terms of what botanists have described in nature, we can’t get ahold of samples where we can be 100 percent confident that its a sativa or indica. This plant has been shuffled through so many human hands over so many millennia.”
“When you go into a grocery store and there’s a big pile of apples labelled as Honeycrisp, you expect that they’re actually Honeycrisp apples.” Myles said. “You can’t just throw McIntosh apples in there and sell them for $4.99 a bag.”
We may loosely call things “indica” or “sativa,” Myles continued, and that’s a fair rule of thumb for describing their physical traits and psychoactive effects. But since nobody was keeping track of marijuana with the methods of a modern agriculturist some 5,000 years ago, we don’t know what a “pure” sativa or indica really is, DNA-wise, he said. Who’s to say what the defining characteristics of a pure sativa or indica really are?
“They call things Purple Kush, but Purple Kush does not mean anything,” said Sean Myles, a professor of agricultural genetic diversity at Dalhousie University and co-author of the 2015 study, over the phone. “There are so many exceptions, and the correlation is so weak, that putting a number on a bag and saying, ‘This is a 50/50 hybrid of indica and sativa,’ is highly, highly dubious.”
Me, internally: Hm, seems fake.
Cannabis strains labelled “sativa” and “indica” promise different physical effects but scientifically speaking, even the “best” weed strains are probably bullshit—names like “Purple Kush” don’t mean anything.
