Researchers at the University of Colorado, Boulder determined that high-THC flower and concentrates do not appear to get users higher.
- The survey, conducted in mobile labs dubbed “cannavans,” found that 121 cannabis users didn’t self-report being more intoxicated after using the more potent products and performed about the same on balance and cognition tests.
- The results raise questions about the validity of drug tests that record THC levels in the blood.
- “People in the high concentration group were much less compromised than we thought they were going to be,” said study co-author Kent Hutchison. “If we gave people that high a concentration of alcohol it would have been a different story.”
