ANALYSIS CHEMICAL RESIDUE/PESTICIDES

The use of different pesticide, herbicides, and insecticides can promote cannabis plant health and increase crop yields. These chemicals are used to kill off fungus, insects and bacteria, among other things. However, the chemicals and active ingredients used to produce these products can have varying side effects that can pose serious health problems and have negative health consequences for those who use cannabis.

Understanding what is being ingested, whether the product is inhaled or consumed, is paramount in maintaining a safe and effective product. Certain pesticides and chemical limits have been identified and linked to a wide range of human health hazards. Therefore, assessing the presence of these colorless and odorless residual chemicals in cannabis products, helps ensure that any remaining material is within the acceptable tolerable limits. This ultimately promotes end-user safety and product efficacy.
