Resarch proves pot no more potent than 30 years ago

UK: Extra-high cannabis theory goes up in smoke


Alan Travis

The Guardian


Saturday 26 Jun 2004


---
The effective strength of cannabis consumed in Britain has remained stable
for the past 30 years, according to a European Union study published today.

The research says there is no evidence for claims that most cannabis
consumed in Britain and the rest of Europe is now 10 times or more stronger
than it was in the 70s.

The US drugs "tsar" John Walters and toxicologist John Henry of St Mary's
hospital in Paddington, west London, are among those who have warned that
the cannabis available now bears little resemblance to that on the market
30 years ago, with serious health dangers for regular users.

The EU study says that the strength of the active ingredient - THC - has
remained unchanged at about 6% for most of the cannabis smoked in Britain.
It says the amount of cannabis put in the typical British joint has also
remained constant for 20 years at about 200mg for marijuana and 150mg for
resin.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe

I'd say that it depends on the pot. I got some dank yesterday where I get high just smelling it... for people who always get scraggly schwag and were complaining about how it takes grams to get high. I wonder what pot they were basing this study on, or if it is the average of what's available in the street.... or if they are comparing new high grade to old high grade, and new schwag to old schwag. Doesn't sound like a very scientific study to me.

Well, id guess the bulk produced outdoor herb is still around the same potency. Id suspect the high grade herb is much better then the sensi stuff they where growing 20 years ago. Not sure tho?
