High Times Article
Should you be worried about what you inhale? High times asks this important question in the May 2017 issue in an article called, Tainted: The Problem With Pot And Pesticides. The article is a good read and our very own Andrew Black was interviewed for the story. If you don't have time to read the story, one of the main takeaways is you should be smoking clean cannabis and a good way to do that is to support certified growers. It's also a good idea to be suspicious of cannabis concentrates/extracts/oils. When cannabis trim is extracted, the solvent (commonly liquid CO2, Butane, or Alcohol) concentrates not just THC and CBD, but will also pull out and concentrate pesticide residues. If you medicate with cannabis oil, make sure its clean. You don't want a large dose of pesticides with your THC.
