OVERVIEW

All cannabis products sold in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, or the raw material used to make them, must be screened for non-organic pesticides and growth regulators that have been banned by the DPH. Screens for banned substances must show concentrations lower than 10 parts per billion (ppb).

WHY IT MATTERS

Pesticides and other chemicals used in the cultivation of various crops are highly pervasive. Outdoor crops and indoor cultivation facilities without proper air scrubbing equipment are at risk of becoming contaminated if neighboring agricultural or landscaping operations are using any banned substances. While many of these substances have been deemed safe for consumption by the FDA, there are risks associated with heating, combusting, and inhaling certain chemicals. Screening products for these substances helps ensure consumer safety.
