  • Strain type (Sativa, Indica, Hybrid)
  • Packaged on Date
  • Type of cannabis packaging (dried flower, pre-roll etc)
  • Net Weight 
  • Warning labels
  • CBD and THC content 

What’s the difference between THC and total THC?

The first figures, labeled simply as “THC” and/or “CBD,” represent the active cannabinoid amounts contained in the cannabis when it was purchased.
