    Grow, pollinate, new seeds. Rinse and repeat with different strains until you get the one you want. Then produce seeds and name it :-)

    There's a kit out there. I haven't tried it. Google "Cannalyse".

    I'm told british police are looking at this, with the eventual idea being that the thc level will be taken into consideration when it comes to sentencing.

    I've looked cannalyse but don't know of it's accuracy or of anyone who has actually used it....... the only true way is gas chromatography search around I'm sure you'll find more info.

    I read a article by Dr. Hornby and basically he was saying how often diff labs will get diff readings...... so the best test for you and me? Smoke that shiz, lol.... seriously though.

    ^^^^^
    Spence is right. Gas chromagraphy or runnin the ganj in a gas spectrometer are the only accurate ways to messure any chemical structure. Sadly there is not many labs willing to test the green due to the legality of it. You would be able to do it yourself if you could afford the 6 figure price of the spectrometer.

    I use my mate Matty to measure THC potency. If the THC levels are high, Matty's mouth dries out and his false teeth fall out. I rate that "Dank". If his eyes go red and his teeth stay in...average.
    Matty is a hell of a lot cheaper than a gas chromatography result.

    OK for one i don't believe any one can give an accurate thc level .unless you have alot of money to waste and smoke lots of weed (not many of those jewels out there)
    We all know that the tops are more potent, which means consistency of thc throughout a plant varies, there for how is it possible to come up with an exact number, it would HAVE to be a percentage , even scientifically. measuring an average tricome % throughout a plant would be a much easier and effordable way for us normal folk . that would be with a buster ,screen, and digital scale . set a scale amount to work with , extract then weigh. the difference is you percentage. example : you scale weight was 1 gram, you extracted 0.2 g of tricome there for 20 % TRICOME NOT THC.
    Ive used it for years and it just gives me a general idea of difference between crap to great . only if more ppl used this, it would give us non scientific potheads a good general scale of marijuana quality.
    you have to start somewhere. Why not use this as a base for our knowledge we are being deprived of, due to government and cost .
