What’s in your pot? Marketplace tests today’s weed
Marijuana legalization is looming in Canada, but what’s in today’s weed — and what isn’t — may surprise you.
CBC’s Marketplace looked into the marijuana market ahead of the legalization of recreational pot, which is expected to be introduced through legislation in spring 2017 and to take effect in 2018.
When producers visited seven Toronto dispensaries and collected 12 of the most popular marijuana strains, laboratory test results showed average THC levels of around 20 per cent. THC is the active ingredient that provides pot’s high.
