About this Webinar
The THC fallacy known to be frustrating cultivators the world over, is that cannabis with higher THC percentages is of higher quality, or higher potency, than something with a lower THC percentage.
Join us to explore the high THC fallacy and examine evidence surrounding cannabis potency and effect. Our guest speaker is Nate Winokur from BelCosta Labs who will share his insights into the misconceptions around THC levels and discuss the impact of this fallacy on consumer buying patterns.
In this webinar we’ll cover the science behind cannabis potency, how it is measured, and explore the myths and misconceptions surrounding high THC levels and the impact they have on public perception and policy. Viewers can expect a thought-provoking discussion that will challenge your assumptions and deepen your understanding of this important topic.
Nate Winokur is the Vice President of Strategy and Operations at BelCosta Labs, one of Southern California’s principal licensed cannabis testing facilities comprised of nationally renowned experts in the field who are dedicated to driving growth in the science community.
