Very nice ,that's not entirely true k9 , was claimed to measured on immature buds
Much higher after 10 to 12 weeks
I've seen it once when I was about 19 , a couple in the woods back of Noosa had some , they claimed in their garden
Didn't know what at it was back then ,so it could or could not have been
They had some good buds so who knows

it does seem to be interesting that cannabis back in the day seemed stronger even though most likely it was low THC %
there is 140 cannabinoids in a triscombe head , most of which we know zip about
well , 2 new cannabinods have been discovered / named , one looks similar to cbd the other looks allot like THC except could be 30x stronger
in it's psychoactive properties , which could explain why back in the day canna could have been stronger with a lower THC % & increased amount of the cannabinoid THCP
in our rush to breed high THC cultivars we have missed out on the majority of the 140 cannabinoids , which might have no effect , but based on the the cannabinoids we have played
with so far you'd have to figure the chance is high for them to be just as effective if not more so than the list of cannabinoids we already know
Cannabis contains over 140 similar chemicals that interface with receptors throughout the body,
but as far as we know, only THC can induce a mind-bending high. Now, scientists have uncovered
two new cannabinoids, one of which structurally resembles nonpsychoactive compound CBD and
the other of which looks like THC but could elicit stronger effects — at least in theory.
The THC look-alike, named tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP), seems to interact with the same receptor
as THC, the receptor known as CB1, according to a new study published Dec. 30 in the journal Scientific Reports.
The key difference between THCP and its cousin lies in a chain of atoms jutting off the newfound compound.
Research suggests that the protruding structure, called an alkyl side chain, is what allows THC to plug
into its preferred receptor. A cannabinoid must carry at least three carbon rings in its side chain to gain
access to CB1, and THC compounds typically carry five. On paper, a cannabinoid equipped with more
than five carbon rings would fit even more snuggly into the receptor, and eight carbon rings would supply
the absolute perfect fit, eliciting the strongest biological response. But no such compounds have been
uncovered in nature, the authors noted in their paper.
This compound boasts not five, not six, but seven carbon rings in its alkyl side chain When applied to a makeshift receptor concocted in a lab dish, the compound tended to bind the substance 30 times more reliably than THC did.
