    Thc test kit

    Ok so was just wondering if there was a thc test kit people can vouch for. Online is a hard shopping market some are really expensive and others seem too cheap. This isn’t for a professional reason I just thought it would be Kool to see what levels my crops achieve

    Do It Yourself THC Testing

    Well, IF you have any chemistry/techie knowhow, and you like DIY projects, there is a fascinating thread at OverGrow on home grown THC testing using readily available materials. These tests detect THC & CBD, but they only provide relative rather than absolute percentages. You can compare two samples and see which one is strongest, but it won't provide a percentage number. Qualitative, not Quantitative.

    The setup involves acids and bases that are strong enough to harm you, so this approach isn't for the faint at heart. As a disclaimer, I worked in a chem lab and the procedures are straight forward measuring and stirring. With that said, I haven't tried any of these myself and I strongly suggest that anyone interested do due diligence before proceeding.

    The linked thread is *really* long, but fascinating. They were figuring this out as they went.... very cool.

    I grow exclusively in large pots using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
    My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
    I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
    Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!

      Hello Wolfe0420. Check out this link https://www.gethigrade.com/. I have this app and it's kinda cool. There has been some discussion on here about the science behind the technology. The burning Q, can you really get an accurate report from a picture? Thx to alltatup for the heads up about this app.

        Read about the algorithms on their site. There's no guessing.

        Now comes the weight - It will take them for ever to leave customs. The U.S side of shipping is Way, Way more efficient then Canada, or at least this has been my observation across the board except DHL.

      Finally got my scope. I had to take my phone case off for this work but I can live with that. Still have to start a grow log in the app but I did a quick thc test.

      I was entertaining the idea of testing my progress. Almost pulled the trigger at a local hydroponics store but did a little research first on there product. It turned out that the test kit offered was only a relevant kit i.e a range of 16 - 20 % kind of like a pool water test strip, nothing conclusive. the better test kit with actual thc % was close to 200$ dollars but it did offer around 20 test.. Not willing to spend that at this time.
