Many dispensaries in San Diego claim to have CBD heavy strains, when in reality, medical cannabis patients have no choice but to take their cooperative’s recommendations on medication. There are some collectives that list laboratory test levels of their medication, but most collectives do not list the Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabinol (CBN) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels for their cannabis, let alone test for them.
"You cannot judge a book by its cover," says Greg Magdoff, one of the founders of PharmLabs. "You just never know what you got until you test it."
For medical cannabis patients looking for a CBD rich strain with minimal effects of the THC, Magdoff has a strain recommendation worth taking a look at. “ACDC tested at .62% THC and an amazing 13.44% CBD,” Magdoff explained. “This strain—and many other CBD rich strains—have been helping many of our clients with a wide array of ailments.”
This information is vitally important to severely ill patients; it can make or break the success of their treatment. Thankfully, with the growing numbers in children’s cannabis treatments, a trend in laboratory testing is on the rise.
PharmLabs is one of many new facilities that provide the medical cannabis community with analytic services and laboratory testing to ensure patients have access to safe medication. Labs like PharmLabs allow medical cannabis patients to take a closer look at the medication they are acquiring, and help zero in on the specific methods and strains to help treat their own unique medical condition. PharmLabs tests can offer a quantitative analysis of individual samples of medication, measuring the levels of THC, CBD, and CBN by using Gas Chromatography with a Flame Ionization Detector for the separation and quantification of the several common psychoactive compounds typically found in cannabis.
"We are here to serve the medical marijuana community with lab testing and analytic services to ensure patients have access to safe medicine," said Magdoff. "Through laboratory testing, PharmLabs will provide safe medicine for the medical marijuana community and arm patients with the proper information to make an informed decision on the type of medicine they require to best combat their specific medical condition."

A Colorado marijuana innovation is changing the way lawmakers in even the most conservative parts of the country talk about cannabis and is poised to create a rapid expansion in the number of states that have legalized marijuana in some way.
The invention is a non-psychoactive oil made from marijuana plants that is used to treat children with severe seizure disorders. The oil is rich in a chemical called cannabidiol, or CBD, but is low in THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

"In 2012, both Washington and Colorado saw spikes in youth turnout when marijuana initiatives were on the ballot. This year, Florida could be a critical test case for whether those increases were an anomaly or the start of a trend in advance of the presidential election in 2016, when activists plan to launch legalization campaigns in at least six states, including battleground Nevada."
