PESTICIDES: A RETROSPECTIVE

The arsenal of pesticides available to licensed producers in Canada constantly changes as Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) adds or removes permitted sprays, so here is a comprehensive list that will be kept consistently up to date with those changes.

WHY VITAMIN E ACETATE IS IN PESTICIDES

Mystery has embraced concern amidst the vape epidemic which has leftover 2, 000 patients hospitalized and taken the lives of over 30. A finger has been consistently pointing at one toxin that has made itself apparent. Vitamin E acetate, or a-tocopherol, has been poised as an incredible hazard when smoked or vaporized.

CANNABIS SPRAYS EXPLORED: CAN A GMO BE CERTIFIED ORGANIC?

We’ve already explored moulds that kill. They are known as ‘biological sprays.’ Next, we’ll look at genetically-modified pesticides and how some of these GMO’s are considered organic by Health Canada.

CANNABIS SPRAYS EXPLORED: RESPONSE PLAN FOR ALLERGENS

We previously discussed some benefits and problems surrounding the use of Predatory Fungi like Prestop when growing cannabis– a ‘fight fire with fire’ form of defence against moulds and mildew in the agriculture industry.

IS CANNABIS VEGAN? EXPLORING THE PESTICIDES MADE FROM MILK BACTERIA

Living a pure vegan life can be tough. Avoiding the meat and dairy industry is a lot harder than it should be. Animal parts sneak their way into our food in peculiar ways, and that shouldn’t even be a thought when smoking something as green as weed, right?

CANNABIS SPRAYS EXPLORED: ORGANOSULPHUR, A PLANT’S NATURAL PESTICIDE

Adding certain ingredients to the soil that is embracing your cannabis plant can be beneficial, even adding certain products that are not intended for food consumption. A little sulphur in the dirt can actually help a plant grow as well as protect it from the environment. 

CANNABIS SPRAYS EXPLORED: TOXIC SLUDGE AND SULPHURIC ACID

The quality of Canada’s legal strains always seems so incredibly poor. The reality is, harsh smoke emanates from cannabis after it has been dosed in different chemicals and chemical sprays. Legal producers often ensure no pests, mites, or mold grows on their crop by using pesticide shortcuts. 

CANNABIS SPRAYS EXPLORED: TESTING FOR HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

When your bud burns black and you get a headache, that is from left behind nutrients, but also sprays because your cannabis wasn’t flushed properly. Or because it was sprayed while flowering.
