Pesticide Standard Mixtures for Cannabis Testing
Cannabis farmers in the United States may have a serious chemical problem to contend with–pesticides.
Right now, there aren't any federal regulations on pesticide use in cannabis farming, and laws and use can vary widely by state. Some groups are calling for explicit restriction and regulation of pesticides used by commercial growing operations. Marijuana still isn't fully legal at the federal level, and it's possible pesticide regulations won't be added until these laws are amended.
Typically, there are two ways pesticides commonly reach crops. Marijuana farms may use pesticides themselves or grow using contaminated soil, or contamination can occur from a nearby farm's pesticides reaching the crop. Some states restrict the pesticides that farmers can use on their own operations. They may also restrict other farmers' use of certain pest control chemicals near local cannabis farms.
With more people consuming cannabis from commercial operations, there could be more exposure to pesticides. This is why many states choose to regulate pesticide use on or near marijuana growth.
