Consumer safety is our number one concern, this is why pesticide testing is used to ensure that the cannabis products are safe to consume. Pesticides are regulated in crops that are grown throughout all industries and since they can be used in cultivation of cannabis they need to be tested for in flower and extracts. When cannabis flower is extracted for cannabinoids and terpenes, the pesticides can be extracted and concentrated as well which can lead to very high and dangerous levels of pesticides in a cannabis product.
Currently there is not list of standard/acceptable concentrations for California but as soon as they become available we will start testing with those regulations. Until then we base our suggested tests to include acceptable concentrations that are provided from Oregon State for their mandatory cannabis testing. We are currently offering a 200 pesticide panel and a 30 pesticide panel of pesticides found on cannabis . Please contact us for more information on our pesticide testing.
