How to Avoid Buying Contaminated Cannabis

Cannabis is so available these days, in many parts of the world. Now there are ways and means around how to avoid buying contaminated cannabis. At Cannabis Therapy we only promote pure, natural and organic cannabis products. For us, finding contaminated cannabis is quite difficult. We know how to avoid buying cannabis that is contaminated as this is vital to our health, your health and the reputation that precedes us. Beware of the growers out there who have huge cannabis crops, are doing well financially and evading all regulations. It does not matter how successful your cannabis crop is, but there are strict rules and regulations that need to be followed if you are to be a cannabis grower, cannabis product manufacturer and distributor.

Be Aware of Commercially Grown Cannabis

The cannabis industry has taken off in American and Canadian states where it is now legal. Commercial growers are so keen to be the best growers, to make the most money and to have the most clients that they are now using pesticides to maintain their crops. This is a short cut that could end up being a long problem. It makes their cannabis product toxic and their clients could take them to court if they get ill from using contaminated cannabis. How do you now avoid buying such contaminated cannabis products?

If you are buying raw cannabis in order to smoke it or make your own oils and tinctures, you need to test your cannabis carefully for contaminants.

Test for Contaminants Before Use

  • Test it visually – inspect the bud of the plant with a magnifying glass. Contaminants will look like white coverings on the stems of the buds and the buds will be harder to check as they are intricate. The substance may resemble tiny white crystals.
  • Test it with touch – feel the cannabis to see if there is a chalky dry feeling; maybe you will feel what resembles grains of sugar or grit
  • Test it with smell – hold the cannabis up to your nose and take a whiff. It should smell organic and welcoming, not like a chemical or mouldy

Watch out for Mould and Bacteria

Mouldy cannabis can also contain bacteria and yeast – very dangerous substances to be consuming.  A media company in Canada tested a few products from cannabis dispensaries in Toronto. They found that most of the cannabis was contaminated and the owners of such outlets were ignorant of this. The cannabis being sold legally in Canada is therefore failing every health standard they are expected to pass. Yet, who is testing the contaminated cannabis? Cannabis Therapy feels very strongly about this: we offer only pure, organic and natural cannabis products to our clients. We urge you to be careful of the black market where there is no regulation whatsoever and people are only out to make a fast buck.
