Cannabinoid Content and Rank, Retail Cannabis Reviews2 min read

Legal cannabis introduces a new level of data that we can use to select cannabis. One fo the most common ways of looking at cannabis is by cannabinoid content.

The value of whole flower cannabis isn’t restricted to its cannabinoid content, but it is usually the most obvious differentiator, beyond the offering’s name.

For each review, I apply a simple ranked index to the listing based on my perspective, inclusive of all the variables involved in the review (lineage, visuals, feel, olfaction, and value). I’d like to tell you that I select my favourites regardless of cannabinoid content. But is that really true?

Below, we look at sum cannabinoid content (THC%+CBD%) by my subjective rank.

We use two views here. The first looks at the cannabinoid content of my purchases by the rank I chose to give it. I’ve added a trend line and some statistical analysis (r² and p-value). At time of writing, the trend shown on the chart is a gradual decrease of rank with cannabinoid content. But the trend isn’t supported by the statistical checks.

The second chart is a detail view of each cultivar, by rank and cannabinoid content of the package I reviewed. I’ve set the colour of the bar chart to show each offering as above average content (green) or below average content (yellow).

Hover/tap the bars for the cannabinoid content for each listing, compared back to the average cannabinoid content for that cultivar (as per my purchases). Comparative ranking information for each listing is also shown.

This chart is live, it will continue to update as I complete more reviews.
