The Cannabis Industry is Facing Significant Challenges with Pesticide Use

In 2016, the estimated size of the legal US marijuana industry was $7.1B, and is expected to grow to $21.8B by 2020.

Laboratory equipment
There are no uniform guidelines for pesticide use in the cannabis industry.
Bug
Cannabis plants are prone to pests and disease which can spawn a new generation in less than a week and spreads rapidly. 
Spray

Growers have taken the matter into their own hands, treating their plants with alarmingly high levels of pesticides intended for other uses.

Smoker
Many cannabis products contain pesticides at levels higher than what’s typically allowed for edible or combustible products.
Cannabis oil bottle
Extracting concentrates, used to produce edibles, tropical products and inhalants causes pesticide residues to accumulate at 10X higher than flowers.
