What’s the Grading Scale for Cannabis?
When you buy weed online, you will notice that a product may be graded with a certain amount of A’s. But what do these A’s even mean? The amount of A’s given to a certain strain of cannabis reflects a combination of factors the weed holds including quality and potency effects. Because there has to be a system in place for quality control, a grading scale was developed to ensure users are getting quality weed. The grading scale goes from “A” to “AAAAA” – the higher the grade the more guarantee that your weed has been cultivated using only the best standards and methods. This means it’s been checked for structural integrity and pureness in its strains (as in, no mold is seen growing on the plant and it does not have poor structure). Theoretically, when a strain has been graded with a greater amount of A’s, it means it is more potent because of its purity and ability to uphold its properties.
