Marijuana Potency

cloud of marijuana smoke

Marijuana (pot) today is much more potent than a few decades ago. The average marijuana potency has risen steadily for three decades with THC levels now exceeding 10 percent, with some reports as high as 28 percent. Due to these higher levels, are a person can more easily become addicted and is more likely to experience paranoia, irritability and other negative effects. In recent years there have been accidents and fatalities that some are attributing to the higher potency of marijuana.

THC is a fat-soluble substance, which means it dissolves in fat. Scientific evidence shows that drug residues remain lodged in the fat tissue of the body for an indefinite amount of time, leaving a person with the negative effects long after they cease taking them.
