hello all. I am growing some rosetta stone. have been through 2 harvests now and materials appears to be good and performs well. But, just got it tested (2 x separately) and THC levels came in at 3.2% and 2.4% . passed all other tests (water, heavy metals, contaminants etc). any ideas how that is possible? very frustrated here. thanks, EDW

Yeah, so THC exists as two separate molecules. Inactive THC-A is converted to ∆9-THC during combustion or decarboxylation, meaning you could have a 20% THC material sample with 17% being THC-A and the other 3% being active ∆9-THC.

Ras - Thank you. just seems odd. the effect is good. i figured it would come in at 15-18%, but 3%?!?! any way to 'fix' this or just try again with a new strain or base material?
thanks

It sounds like the test hasn't revealed the true potency of your herb, or was perhaps misinterpreted. From what I understand, THC-a is going to be the indicator of its total concentration, while you only know the amount of ∆9-THC present.

🤠 Rosetta Stone delivers a THC range between 15 and 20 percent. This strain requires an indoor grow setup and may finish after seven weeks of flowering, though it may take up to eight to fully finish :mask:
