Medicinal regulation and laboratory analysis: increasingly powerful cannabis

Medicinal regulation and laboratory analysis: increasingly powerful cannabis

Being able to analyze cannabis is one of the most useful advances that the development of our industry has brought. These tests are used to treat a condition in a controlled manner, direct a breeding work with greater criteria or prevent possible poisoning by contaminants. Cannabis is currently more potent than ever, in fact, there are varieties whose flowers reach 30% THC. The veracity of these data, the advantages and dangers that this trend may entail in patients and users or the legal consequences will be some of the issues developed in this block.
