If you don’t personally know who cultivated your cannabis, it probably isn’t safe to consume. Bold statement? Hardly. In California, 84 percent of cannabis samples tested by Steep Hill Labs were deemed ‘unfit for human consumption’ due to the use of toxic pesticides. The solution is simple—start growing at home. Cannabis cannot be considered medicine if it’s grown with the use of synthetic fertilizers and toxic pesticides.
Furthermore, there’s nothing worse than being subject to the single strain stocked by your weed dealer—and believe it or not, dispensaries don’t always carry the strain you’re looking for. Whether you prefer CBD-rich strains or high-THC strains, growing your own allows you to always smoke what you want—not just the most popular, over-hyped strain. There’s a certain comfort in always knowing what you’re getting, especially if you are purchasing for medical use. Say ‘no’ to toxic weed with harmful side effects, start growing your own today!
