Lunger42: Not a pot smoker, so what's the big deal with using pesticides on the stuff?
dopekitty74: nburghmatt: as a pot smoker, i'm getting sick of this snobby hipster weedhead movement. 5 years ago they were smoking weed from Canada that could have had anything done to it, now they're holding rallies over some pesticides. pesticides are used on stuff we eat, for god's sake. pussies.Don't be disparaging the Canadian weed, man. The friends I have who grow don't use chemical pesticides. They grow using the old fashioned in dirt, using manure for fertiliser way.
BarkingUnicorn: Guess it's about how big a deal it is to society, not to an individual.
BarkingUnicorn: So, were you given any rationale for this policy, or was it just "policy?"
santadog: Honey oil is where it's at.
khyberkitsune: Great Justice: Don't some folks make hash this way?Yessir. I just took a picture for this thread, too.[i.imgur.com image 640x480]That's about a quarter pound, in total. All from water-curing and filtration through bubble bags for grading.The dispensary has the buds. They sit on the top-shelf.
santadog: My buds are so frosty, I don't even like to handle it to put it in a bowl. I would never dream of handling it that much.

Miticides are often pretty nasty in their own right and the compounds created when you burn them are not fully understood. Since you're apply the pesticide to "consumable" parts of the plants, it's a real wild card what the effects, if any, may be in the long term. It's also questionable if the growers are observing "days to harvest" regulations.Other common pesticides (and yes, fungicides are "pesticides") are applied to control root diseases, most commonly Phytophthora and Pythium (Which are controlled by fungicide even though, yes, they are actually fungal-like algae). These pesticides are typically applied as a soil drench and don't translocate through the plants and shouldn't be that big of a deal but could still cause people some concern.Foliar diseases that require applying pesticides to above ground portions of the plant are relatively rare.You missed the point. I too am not a pot smoker and I still don't see a big deal with using pesticides on the stuff. They could use DDT and I wouldn't care.
