these tables are relative concentrations.

Percentage of original THC lost as CBN

The very high figures for CBN in hashish indicate that much of the THC is
converted to CBN because of processing and aging. During hashmaking many of
the gland heads are broken and the THC is exposed to light and air. The
figures in these tables are typical of what to expect for relative
concentrations of THC in hashish on the American market. Actual
concentrations are roughly one-fourth to one-third of these figures.

Obviously, THC percentages for hashish and tinctures are not that high
compared to fine marijuana. Hashish in the United States seldom lives up to
its reputation. The best buy in terms of the amount of THC for the money is
hash oil when it is high quality and fresh. More often a fine homegrown
sinsemilla or sometimes a lightly seeded Colombian is the best investment.
(Of course, the best value is always what you grow yourself.)

Chapter Three
BEFORE CULTIVATION BEGINS

3.2 Choosing Seeds

Popular Market names of different grades of grass, such as Colombian
commercial and Mexican regular, are familiar to growers, but each grade
actually may encompass many different varieties. For example, there are
Colombian Golds that are similar in most respects, but some varieties grow
no taller than six feet. The more common types grow 12 to 15 feet under the
same conditions. Some Oaxacan Cannabis forms several strong upright branches
by maturity, and at a glance may seem to have several stems, yet more often,
Oaxacan is conical-shaped and grows about 12 feet.

Most of the fine marijuana sold in this country comes from type I plants
with THC as the predominant cannabinoid. Type II plants are less common. You
might recognise type II plants by the high. The grass takes longer before
its effects are felt, but the high lasts much longer than with other
marijuana. Type IV plants are the least common; this marijuana seldom
reaches the general American market. This type will get you high after only
a few tokes. Type III plants are considered non-drug varieties because they
are predominantly CBD with little THC. The effects of CBD are not felt
unless it is accompanied by a sizeable concentration of THC, such as in type
II plants. However, a lot of marijuana from these plants is sold in the
United States. Some Mexican and Jamaican regular and much of the low-grade
domestic is harvested from type III plants.

You may not be able to tell what type plant you're smoking, but you can tell
what you like. Seeds from high-quality marijuana will grow into high-quality
marijuana plants. If you like the grass you're smoking, you'll like the

grass you grow.

The name of your grass has little to do with potency and may have originated
in the mind of some enterprising dealer. Always choose your seeds from what
you consider to be the best grass. Don't be swayed by exotic names. If you
are not familiar with grass of connoisseur quality, ask someone whose
experience you respect for seeds. Smokers tend to save seeds from
exceptional grass even if they never plan to plant them.

The origin of your grass even if you knew it for certain, has little to do
with wether it will be dynamite or worthless smoke. In both India(45) and
Brazil, hemp is grown which is worthless for marijuana. Likewise, extremely
potent marijuana plants grow which are useless for hemp fibre. These plants
are sometimes found growing in adjacent fields. Most of the fine-quality
marijuana varieties develop in those countries nearer to the equator. How
much this had to do with environmental conditions or cultural practices is
unknown. In either case, marijuana traffic has been so heavy that fine
varieties now grow all over the world. For example, in the United States
thousands of people now grow varieties from Mexico. These fine varieties
originated in Asia and Africa, and many were brought to Mexican farmers by
American dealers during the 1960s. As more farmers grew these new varieties,
the quality of Mexican grass imported to the United States improved. Already
people are speaking of varieties such as Maui Wowie and Kona Gold.

The colour of the grass does not determine its potency. Marijuana plants are
almost always green, the upper surface of the leaves a dark, luxuriant
green, and the undersurface a lighter, paler green. Some varieties develop
reds and purples along stems and leaf petioles. Occasionally, even the
leaves turn red/purple during the last stages of growth (plate 6). Grasses
termed "Red" more often get their colour from the stigmas of the female
flowers, which can turn from white to a rust or red colour, giving the
marijuana buds a distinct reddish tinge. The golds and browns of commercial
grasses are determined by the condition of the plant when it was harvested -
whether it was healthy (green) or dying (autumn colours). How the plants are
harvested, cured, and stored also has a serious effect on colour. Commercial
grasses from Colombia, Mexico, and Jamaica are often poorly cured and
packed. Too much moisture is left in the grass, encouraging microbial
decomposition; with warm temperatures, whatever green was left disappears,
leaving the more familiar browns and golds. Bythe time they reach the United
States, commercial grasses lose about five to 20 percent of their weight in
water loss and often smell mouldy or musty.

Colour also depends on origin - varieties adapted to tropical or
high-altitude areas have less chlorophyll and more accessory pigments,
giving the plant their autumn colours (accessory pigments protect the plant
from excessive sunlight). Varieties adapted to northern climates, where
sunlight is less intense, have more chlorophyll and less accessory pigments.
The dying leaves often turn light yellow, grey, or rust. Variations in
pigment concentrations are also influenced by local light particularly the
soil conditions under which the plants are grown.

The taste of the smoke - its flavour, aroma, and harshness - also depends
more on when the marijuana was harvested and how it was handled after it was
grown than on the variety or environmental influences.
