Seattleites Love Quality Cannabis
People are becoming increasingly concerned with the chemicals – specifically non-organic pesticides – that are being used on or around products they are consuming. Although recreational weed in Washington State cannot yet be labeled as ‘organic’, measures are being taken within production facilities to rear a higher quality plant, untouched by harmful chemicals.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “If the credits of (non-organic) pesticides include enhanced economic potential in terms of increased production of food and fibre, and amelioration of vector-borne diseases, then their debts have resulted in serious health implications to man and his environment. There is now overwhelming evidence that some of these chemicals do pose a potential risk to humans and other life forms and unwanted side effects to the environment.”
Washington State’s I-502, the initiative that legalized recreational pot, has provided very strict guidelines about what chemicals and pesticides can and cannot be used when growing weed. These guidelines also require that the pot products sold in any of Seattle’s cannabis retailers need to list all chemicals or pesticides used in the growing process. If you’re having trouble spotting this, ask a budtender to point this out next time you stop by your favorite Greenwood pot shop.
