Marijuana labeling system ‘not an effective or safe way’ to detail what’s inside products, study finds | app

Marijuana product labels fail to capture “the chemical reality” of what people smoke, a University of Colorado study concluded after analyzing 90,000 samples offered for sale in six states.

The widely used labeling system believed to predict the effects of different “strains” – “indica” (relaxing effect), “sativa” (energizing effect) and “hybrid” – obscures the diversity of chemicals that cannabis users inhale, according to the study, which was published Thursday in the online scientific journal PLOS One.
