Pesticides in Cannabis and Hemp Testing. Finding the Right Tool for the Job
Abstract: Pesticide and mycotoxin testing regulations differ in each state. The applicable pesticides used can differ by crop (hemp vs. cannabis) and pesticide effectiveness on cannabis and hemp in the first place is currently in doubt. Each pesticide's risk profile is different based on product type, route of delivery, physicochemical properties. Inside the laboratory, different extraction methods can lead to different recoveries and different instrumentation has different detection limits. This talk will cover how cultivators and laboratories can reliably mitigate the risk of these toxic compounds in their products and ensure regulatory compliance and robust methodology.
