The Importance of Pesticide and Solvent Testing for Marijuana Extracts
Marijuana products are flourishing in many states, as more and more people become aware of their beneficial medical applications. However, the increased use of these products has given rise to concerns about their safety, especially for patients with severely weakened immune systems. This is not due to any inherent characteristics of the plants themselves, but rather the types of pesticides that may be used on them and any solvents that may have seeped into the ground and been absorbed during the growing process. Both of these substances can have major side effects if ingested, and the last thing that suffering epilepsy or cancer patients need is to have their lives threatened by something else.
