Lol, I was trying to be 'kind'. A number of years ago, a place opened up local to me, in a very nice secluded location... the folks working there were fascinated with what I was explaining to them, and I was fortunate enough to get them hooked a bit and they got involved with ProjectCBD. They have continued to learn and 'grow' (pun intended), and while O.C. succeeded in running them out of biz a couple of times they are thriving in the South Bay (typically #1 in their area on Weedmaps). They have been learning about terpenes as well as other cannabinoids, and are fully aware (now) of the variability of strains over time (not sure how to crack that particular nut, we kicked around a few ideas years ago on the ASA forums). They've heard me bemoan what's happened to 'labelled strains' like Trainwreck, Grape Ape, Purple Urkle with this 'strain drift' has happened over time, and they've been watching it with more recent strains like AC/DC, Cannatonic, etc. How about a thread on what it takes to measure and show that, a 'finger-printing' system that is easy to process and classify (since that's what our brains seem to like)? The depressing thing is aside from the PopNaturals CO2 oils I scramble to get my hands on, labs are STILL not ubiquitous (2018 should bring some changes there), nor comprehensive Typical labs only cover THC, CBD, CBN (perhaps THCa, CBDa), and make me see red wen they don't test for contaminants. PopNaturals covers the gamut, most comprehensive labs I've seen: THC, THCa, CBD, CBDa, CBN, CBG, CBGa, CBC, THCv, (CBGv), Terpenes, Micro-organisms, Pesticides, Residual Solvents... I think heavy metals are included in that mix too. Here's a sample: http://www.cwcannalytical.com/cwlims/verify?cwid=CW6802S11&share=1 (it's behind a bot screening captcha, but is WORTH the look, eye opening on really good labs) Before growers or store operators jump on me, I agree that the labs are too expensive currently... I couldn't get full labs done on something due to the cost and had to settle for a more rudimentary setup. But labs like these show the way I think we should be going if we like the scientific method. I still think there should be a vastly cheaper way to do testing for many compounds, even with contact patches (which should conceivably be able to test for pesticides/fungicides). Erik and I started looking into custom test patches from a Chinese supplier, but that was right around the time he passed I still need to migrate data off my old machine, it's probably on there... saving up for a RAID1 backup to migrate everything with. Should be Christmas all over again when I get all that shit moved over Now I have to go read up and see what the new law says about labs.
