SPECIAL: Dangerous Levels of Pesticides in Non-organic Pot…New Study
According to recent research from Dr. Jeffrey Raber, who holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Southern California and operates a medical cannabis testing laboratory in Los Angeles, California, up to 70 percent of the pesticides found on a marijuana bud can end up in the smoke you’re inhaling.
"You have to consider that when you inhale (something), it’s much like injecting it directly into your blood stream.”
-Jeffrey Raber, Ph.D.
If your pot isn’t organic, you’re probably inhaling pesticides
Pot farms are notorious for heavy use of pesticides, and even ones selling to legal medical marijuana dispensaries often go heavy on the toxic chemicals.
