Those idiots were supposed to add ergot fungus and they used mold instead? You can't get good help these days.

N-Bliss sound like the feeling crackers get when they use the N-word and their brains release serotonin. That's why they get mad that they can't use it anymore.

They don't really say whether it's a visible amount or if it's something that can only be detected in the lab. Big difference there. Most people in the growing/processing side are trained to watch for mold and avoid mold growth, but some does slip by. OTOH it's hard to avoid microscopic levels of growth. Someone is going to catch some shiat over that and it sucks to be them.

Yeah. Considering it's the first sales, I would have thought the lab would have tested thoroughly. I forgot the name of the grower, but I guess it's possible they hired too many inexperienced locals when getting the Missouri operations going.

Oh I can't read. They don't have to test for mold, just for the byproducts.

DHSS also said officials were using the constitutionally mandated seed-to-sale tracking system to notify "all facilities, patients and caregivers associated with this product batch." Authorities asked everyone who might have bought flower from the batch not to use the product until an investigation could be completed.
"A well-regulated program allows for this type of quick action so that we can protect patients," said Lyndall Fraker, Missouri's marijuana program director. DHSS also said that an "initial visual inspection" of the rest of the batch subject to complaint "has not indicated a concern," but that additional lab testing is being conducted.


Sounds like the system is working precisely as intended to me.

It's not like any other farmed plant has ever had anything nasty that slipped past quality control. Looking at you, E-coli tainted salad!!

Everyone is aware that mold can be an issue with cannabis, which is precisely why these multi level safeguards are in place, and as is evident in the exceptionally swift response of 4 days, I have to say that it seems to be off to a good start there.

As I quoted above, the chain of responsibility seems to be quite in order.

Safeguards?  Stop it!  You're killing me!

From TFA:  "'The state does not require to test for mold as many other states do,' Brown [speaking for weed "testing lab"] said in an email to the News-Leader. 'I believe DHSS is working on something for the future to make it a requirement, but as of now, there is nothing stated in the rules for that specific test.'"

And you can bet your boots that the creeps who put this stuff on the market were perfectly well aware of that, too.  Because as you correctly point out,    [e]veryone is aware that mold can be an issue with [weed].

She added that Missouri's cannabis testing labs must test for mycotoxins, "which are secondary metabolites produced from naturally occurring mold and fungi," but state authorities don't require labs to test for total yeast and mold.
The Missouri health department said that it halted sales on all remaining product from the batch linked to the mold complaint.

Those safeguards caught and recalled a potentially contaminated batch within 4 days of it going on sale. That's a lightning response as far as recalling potentially dangerous medication goes, never mind dangerous food products, and don't get me started on dangerous 'health supplements'.

This system is literally baby-teething, and I'll bet those tests get mandated after this incident.

That sh*t isn't medication any more than Laetrile is, and you know it.

Medication is marketed to be taken in fixed doses and at fixed intervals; read the back of your bottle of aspirin for proof of that.  Most of the stuff that's for sale at N-Bliss--that is, the stuff that's in plant form--**can't** be taken in fixed doses because it's meant to be smoked, thus assuring a different dose of the active ingredients each time it's used.  And *all* of it is marketed to be consumed ad libitum.

They may get mandated, but I seriously doubt they'll get enforced.

Ugh..its very simple. You cant cure it till its dried.

Dry first, 3-4 days, depending on humidity levels. Hang it up in a quiet out of the way spot in the house. If you can bend a stem and it snaps - makes that crunchy sound - its probably dry enough for step 2: curing

Curing - get a brown paper bag, preferably the old style grocery bag, Put in your goods. Let it sit for 3-4 more days, opening the bag once a day to let air recirculate. Curing will allow the last plant energy, the chlorophyll - to convert to sugar, and make it more enjoyable to consume. Thats pretty much it. 

Note: folks talk about jar curing as well, and I've never tried that so I dont know much about it. But I'd think its the same, time involved but DO make sure to exchange the air in it at least once a day.

You've missed my point.  It doesn't matter what the people who sell you that stuff put on the package; if you smoke it--and I assume that you do in that you claim to use a "strain"--you can't control the amount of the active ingredients you ingest each time you use.  That's not a healthy thing.

So...the cannabis I buy is actually tested for content amongst other metrics.

Yes with flower you run the risk of inconsistent content per dose, but you can always meter your doses.

And no I wasn't "put out" by your alleged overdose of cannabis last night.  I took one self regulated hit from a vape pen (with a known content!) And the effects were relaxation and clear headedness which allowed me to attain sleep.

I admire your faith in what your seller is telling you about the stuff you're smoking, and in the idea that you yourself can "regulate" your ingestion of THC when you pull from a vape cartridge.  I don't share it, though.

I wish you the best of luck with your habit in the future.  Inasmuch as I think it's a good bet that you're quickly building up a tolerance to THC, I suspect that you'll need it.

The more to the point you are with him, the more obtuse he becomes. He always resorts to insult, and assertion of his opinions as fact - his diatribe on dosage above is a typical example.

What went on in TFA is precisely how these safeguarding policies *should* be working - a report of mold from a customer being taken so seriously that the entire batch number is pulled, and a recall warning is issued to the public. Within 4 days of going on sale.

It is by far one of the fastest product recalls of anything I have ever seen. Usually meds need to have killed a few people before pharma companies will admit blame and recall the product.
