Consumer safety is our number one concern. Because pesticides are used in the cultivation of cannabis, they need to be tested for in every product. 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.
The Bureau of Cannabis Control has released a list of pesticides that will all be tested for by the end of 2018. If you’d like to view the full regulations, visit our 2018 California Regulations page.
