does anybody know at home test to test THC potency for over 20% and not t check not trying to spend more than $200 any help we appreciate it
Hey was just wondering if anybody knew any at home home to see test kit that is accurate and doesn't break the bank lol
Nope if you are looking to test bud the lowest price for anything worthwhile to have and be accurate you’re gonna have to break out about $2000+
I have the T-Check. They claim accuracy is +/- 3% for raw flower. And +/- 4mg/ml for decarbed flower based infusions. Cost is $400 for the complete kit that does both. They have a 15% off code (Check15)
Yeah, same thing here. I use the tCheck.
do you feel that is accurate? And worth it?
Wow thanks newt that’s good to know and I’m gonna look into that in a bit. Thanks again
It’s accurate enough for my own purposes. I don’t think I could sell bud to a dispensary using the tCheck for potency testing - since +/- 3% is a broad range (18% thc could read 15 or 21), it takes a couple tests of the same substance to get a good feel for what you really have. That said, the tray is plastic and wholly reusable so testing the same bud 3x in a row isn’t difficult or costly.
I do wish it could test potency of butters and oils at higher rates than 15mg/mL but that’s mostly just a whine on my part because I prefer to make my infusions strong and use less butter/oil generally.
If I had the money, I’d have gotten a Purpl, and frankly I would have been disappointed. The tCheck has more versatility than the purpl with a much much lower price tag.
Thank you for that bit of info it’s very helpful
Y,all could just send your buds to me, and receive a free review of your product!
Do you find the #s are close to what is advertised? I know there are a lot of variables but if ILGM says THC up to 19% arr you seeing closer to the top end or way lower?
I’ll be frank, I haven’t tested many of my buds. I tested a CBD strain and it was fairly true to advertising, around 12% CBD. I got it mostly to test concentrates and infusions. But that said, I’m quite happy to test a few and see where they come out. I have a pretty well-cured ILGM Chocolope, Wedding Cake, and Zkittlez. We can see if I can grow anywhere near the threshold they advertise.
Aw man, I’m all outta likes but I tried to burn one on that cute lil’ anyway.
When I get off work I’ll try to remember to test some buds and report back.
Here was my CBD strain btw.
I have tested Blue Dream at 26% and GSC at 21.2. And while the BD is more than I see published, it is some very good bud. They both say up to 21%, so it appears to be close. But to test raw flower, you have to take a small amount of flower and weigh it, then extract with 99.9% isopropyl. You do that by shaking it in the alcohol for 5-10 minutes. And then you tell the device how much the sample weighed. Errors in weight would result in different readings, and I suspect the extraction time could as well.
Question, when they say THC level of 21%, what is this a percentage of, trichomes?
Total cannabinoids. It can’t differentiate between THC and CBD, for example.
Thanks @Newt. That is a question that I have had for awhile. So many terms and acronyms.
Beautiful BD @Newt did you have lower temps to get those colors?
Yes. That grow was harvested in January, so the temps in my basement were lower then.
