A product is considered to have failed if it shows pesticides or heavy metals above the state’s action levels. While all products are not required to pass testing for pesticides and heavy metals before reaching store shelves, the state has set thresholds for pesticides and heavy metals. Products that wish to obtain Department of Health certification as “medically compliant” must not have any pesticides or heavy metals above these thresholds. We hold the products tested under OK CAnnabis to the same standards. The standards are listed here:
Because cannabis hasn’t been studied extensively, we know very little about what pesticides are safe for use on it. As most cannabis products are inhaled, not eaten, much of the EPA’s existing research on pesticides doesn’t apply. These standards are intentionally very low because of that uncertainty.
In addition to pesticide and heavy metal testing, OK CANNABIS is replicating the full suite of I-502 (and DOH MMJ) Quality Assurance tests when testing products. A failure on any test that is currently required is considered a failure. This includes microbial screens, moisture content and mycotoxins.
