Brix (bx)

Brix levels, commonly just called “Brix”, are a measurement of sugar content in an aqueous solution. One degree Brix is 1 gram of sucrose in 100 grams of a solution. Thus, Brix represents the strength of the solution as a percentage of mass. Brix does not strictly apply to sugar and can be used to measure any amount of dissolved solids in a solution. In the context of cannabis, degrees Brix can be measured in the xylem, phloem, or flower of the plant during different life stages. Higher Brix content means that more nutrients are being delivered around the plant relative to water content. Brix can be measured by comparing the density of the solution to the density of water.
