Pesticides

ARE THERE PESTICIDES IN MY PRODUCT?

 

Consumer safety is our number one concern. Pesticides are regulated in agriculture in all states, but pesticide regulation for cannabis is not there yet. Because pesticides are used in the cultivation of cannabis, they need to be tested for in flower, trim, and extracts. When flower or trim is extracted for cannabinoids and terpenes, the pesticides are extracted and concentrated as well. When this happens it leads to very high, dangerous levels of pesticides in the product. This is why pesticide testing is conducted: to ensure that all tested cannabis products are safe to consume.

 

Currently there is no list of standard/acceptable concentrations for California, but as soon as they become available we will start testing with those regulations.  Until then we will base our suggested acceptable concentrations for pesticide levels on those found in Oregon for their mandatory cannabis testing. We currently offer two packages, outlined below:
