Editor Of ‘Cannabis In Medicine’ warns of high THC use and increased psychosis

I believe that it’s important that the public really understand that the definition of high potency THC really boils down to any products that are more than 10% THC, which currently doesn’t exist in the state of Colorado, where the average smoke bud flowers is about 17 to 20% THC. And then you get into these concentrates and then the dabs, waxes and shatters that are pushing 85 to 99, sometimes claiming 100% THC product. So the science is still trying to catch up to the industry because these products are being generated and allowed access to our youth without any real guardrails. And, you know, you talked about marijuana and suicide. I mean, marijuana is the most prevalent substance found in completed teen suicide here in Colorado.
