(WABI Bangor)   When you operate a medical marijuana dispensary you expect protesters. But when the protesters are marijuana patients and caregivers you may want to rethink your business strategies   (wabi.tv) divider line 13

Lunger42: Not a pot smoker, so what's the big deal with using pesticides on the stuff?


One of the major pests is bud mites.  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.

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.


i've visited and it is fantastic weed. i was just saying to go from getting weed on the black market from another country to biatching about mild pesticides is kinda square.

BarkingUnicorn: Guess it's about how big a deal it is to society, not to an individual.


Yep, this place has fewer than 15 employees, AFAIK.

BarkingUnicorn: So, were you given any rationale for this policy, or was it just "policy?"


Nope. It was explicitly advertised in the job posting as females only, though I knew that was not a legitimate occupational qualifier, and I applied for the job anyways, and got told the exact same thing, females only.

santadog: Honey oil is where it's at.


Sadly most people cannot make the stuff in a proper manner, and it ends up being crapola.

Heat and negative pressure, people. Heat and negative pressure after your extraction.

khyberkitsune: Great Justice: Don't some folks make hash this way?

Yessir. I just took a picture for this thread, too.

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.


You're missing out on collecting some of the best. hash. EVER.

Only the finest of grass is grown up north. And in most cases its done naturally. Sorry but you yankees got a ways to go before you can try a pepsi challenge with some good BC bud.

hell even homegrown ontario weeds better than any american grass Ive tried.

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.


Perhaps if you were a chemo patient, someone with skin sensitivity to poisons, or someone with MS or Lupus you might care.  Some people use it as medicine, and not recreational.

What about 'generally recognized as safe' sprays like neem oil and safers soap? Are they banned as well or are we talking just about some of the nasty stuff like avid and merit?
