What strain are you smoking on today?
77 Percent of California Clones Contaminated by Pesticides
After an extensive study by the California-based cannabis testing lab Steep Hill, researchers have determined that most have of the state’s ubiquitous pesticide problem is due to the process of cloning plants. This comes on the heels of a report from last October which estimated about 84 percent of California-grown weed was not “fit for human consumption.”
CLONES CONTAMINATED BY PESTICIDES
Traditionally, there are several different ways a plant becomes contaminated by pesticides. The report cites the following most common causes:
- Knowingly use inputs that contain pesticides (such application may be known to some in the operation, but not others),
- Knowingly use a product whose pesticide content was unknown to them (lack of education, lack of proper labeling),
- Grow in locations that are subject to pesticide “drift” from the application by a neighbor (wind, water, soil, insects, animals).
Afghan Kush (Indica)
Tons of dull orange hairs gives this indica a orangish brownish tint. Soft green color that is overpowered by the thick hairs. Afghan Kush smells like a mango orange farm with a hint of funk to it that is comparable to an old musty basement. Does not have the trademark Kush smell, but it does have its own unique odor and it works well for night time use. Provides an energetic burst of energy right off the bat. After a few minutes it provides a very relaxed focus feeling. Keeps you right on the edge of energetic and couch locked. Great for anxiety and relaxing.
California is trying to educate people about marijuana before recreational sales start
Months before California allows the sale of marijuana for recreational use, the state has launched an education campaign about the drug, including highlighting the potential harms of cannabis for minors and pregnant women.
The state is scheduled to issue licenses starting Jan. 2 for growing and selling marijuana for recreational use, expanding a program that currently allows cannabis use for medical purposes.
Banana Kush (Indica)
With genetics like Banana and the enormously legendary OG Kush, this strain is sure to be potent. With a THC content between 18% and 20%, Banana Kush not only packs a serious punch, but is arguably the best tasting California cannabis available. It is a favorite among dispensaries mostly in Southern California, but has recently expanded to be found in dispensaries throughout the state. This bud is one of those strains that tastes exactly how it smells, particularly when vaporized.
