I didn’t realize that alcohol content was all over the board depending on the type of drink being consumed.
- A lot of beer is lower than 5% ABV while much wine is lower than 10% ABV.
By contrast, hard liquor is well over 40% and is much stronger. I was never a drinker so I admit to never really understanding any of this information in my own right until I looked on the internet to learn more. My dad is a scotch whiskey connoisseur and has a collection in his liquor cabinet of varying ages and origin. I have a friend who is a cigar and tobacco connoisseur, and he tells me that the nicotine content ranges in cigars as well. Some are more intense than others by nature. Raw cannabis flower products are similar because the THC content in them is all over the chart. It’s common to see THC content in cannabis flower products ranging from 10% to 35%, however most cannabis flower jars in this state are between 20% and 25%. That seems to be the “sweet spot” with most raw cannabis flower buds that I see in this state. When that marijuana is processed into cannabis oil, the THC content can get as high as 90% or more. However, it’s the terpene percentage that determines how potent a batch of marijuana feels when consumed. You can’t fall for the trap of overlooking the terpenes and only focusing on the THC content like so many people like to do. If you get a good batch of cannabis flower products with a 27% THC percentage and terpenes over 3%, you know you’ve hit the jackpot!
