Motor City High - Episode 1 Live This Wednesday at Noon. Detroit's medical marijuana industry is on the rise, and this group of growers, scientists, and connoisseurs are at the center of Complex's new series "Motor City High" Each episode: A grower brings a sample of their top strains of marijuana to Damien for evaluation. Damien examines the strain and bring it to the lab for certification and testing. The lab tests the strain's purity and THC content. THC content and Purity are determined and thus the value of the strain is determined. Damien returns to the grower and delivers the results. Now its time for the final test of each strain to be performed, the taste test. The certification of marijuana strain is important to the evaluation of the marijuana itself, a bad grow cycle can be very costly for these farmers so it is important that they get their crops certified before taking them to market. 1) to be legally certified medical marijuana the strain must contain a minimum 12% THC and be 100% impurity free 2) strains over 20% THC garner a higher value. Higher THC% = Higher % of medicine per dosage. CAST: Damien: owner of Over The Moon certification Clinic Joe: Chemist/ Lab tech that test THC levels Brent: Biologist that examines the samples for impurities i.e. mold, fungus, mites etc. Subscribe to Complex for More: http://goo.gl/PJeLOl Check out more of Complex here: http://www.complex.com https://twitter.com/ComplexMag https://www.facebook.com/complex http://instagram.com/complexmag https://plus.google.com/+complex/ COMPLEX is a community of creators and curators, armed with the Internet, committed to surfacing and sharing the voices and conversations that define our new America.
