Canadian-licensed producer Redecan has undergone major public relations, after having reported a company selling cannabis and cannabis molds with defects in the Ontario cannabis store following linear reports.
Photo by Redecan Weed claimed the product's mold, bugs and burrows released by Reddit. On Thursday, the company sent a voluntary recognition of a series of cannabis and received five complaints. However, Redecan said "this visual inspection has been inspected by sample samples of many … and it has not been demonstrated by the mold of these samples." In another statement, LP said "there is no product of the RedeCan product. There are no voids that do not emit insects." The company said that black stripes in the photos were not a mistake, but "harmful non-volatile organic substance (protein carbohydrates)." Later Rick Rick Redecop, a LP master, said CityNews uses the myth that names spider mites as part of the growing organic process. "At the microscope level, it is possible that this could be in our product," said Redecop.
A long explanation is that the farmer of BC Travis Lane does not buy.
"If there is such a mistake, the physical evidence that proves a mistake is not a lie about it," Lane, the founder of the BC Cannabis Independent Association, opted for craftsmen growers. "They think that there is a problem that is quite clear."
Lane says they also have a consulting firm specializing in organic variants, saying they do not have a problem with mold that has a healthy risk in consumer quality.
Cannabis can endure molds and it is common for "when things are not done well".
Lane said that two types of molds are the most common herbs: mildew, light and dusty on leaves, and rarely eyes and Botrytis (Bud rot). Botrytis has "bud out from the inside" and has a potential to completely destroy crops, Lane said, and that black market herb has the same issues.
The two key factors that prevent molds control the level of humidity and the movement of the plants air. But it could be much more difficult in a room of 100,000 square feet, he said, or adapting to the greening of the greenhouse effect, but they previously used a different crop.
"You have a giant and huge spot and you are trying to regulate so many plants. One thing can happen in a section of the room and move it," he said.
Ronan Levy, Strategic Officer at Biotecnology Research at Trait Biosciences, said VICE believes that it faces the mold, both from the point of view of security and from the business point of view.
"Obviously, because the mass scale is growing, there are more plants, there is more people, there is more movement, a small problem of development is rapidly spreading."
Levy first met Cannabis Clinic in Canada, who binds Canada's cannabis medicine program, said it would target people who put the immune system in danger, such as cancer, consuming the molds product.
According to Canadian Health Regulations, 22 approved pesticides may be used by LPs. (Organization, Hydropotheque, Aurora and Mettrum have found pesticides that have been banned in the past).
Levy said that LP should limit the amount of pesticides in the product before consuming it, which means it is generally applicable as soon as possible. But more and more producers are increasingly applying pesticides in the growing process, which means that there is more waste in the final product.
Currently, a technology is being developed to create small molecules that occur naturally in the form of cannabis, to block the development of molecules and viruses.
"What happens, do you not have to apply any pesticides to block the development of these diseases?", Said technology is likely to be brought to market one or two years later.
Lane has said that VICE LPS nowadays exceeds the quality assurance tests in Health Canada. Canadian Health, is to take a specific test for calamus quality control and identify specific pathogens.
VICE comes to Redecan for additional comments and awaits the company response.
In an explanation, Ontario Cannabis Store has said it has taken steps to address Redecan molds. It was offered to offer customers refunds. OCS also informs customer complaints about Canadian Health and LPI directly.
