Cannabis Tested With Unapproved Pesticide, Nevada Regulators Say

LAS VEGAS – The Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (CCB) said that some products made recently in the Las Vegas area were treated with an unapproved pesticide.
The CCB said that Ethephon was used to treat some cannabis by Clark Natural Medicinal Solutions, LLC, which is based in Henderson.
The Environmental Protection Agency says that Ethephon is a plant growth regulator that makes things ripen faster. When inhaled, put on the skin, or eaten, the EPA said that Ethephon is “moderately acutely toxic.”
The CCB said that all of Clark Natural Medicinal Solutions’ usable cannabis products that were grown between July 23, 2021 and January 5, 2023 were affected. This includes cannabis flowers, shake/trim, and pre-rolls that haven’t been infused. All packages should have labels that say where the product was grown or made.
The CCB has a list of all infused edibles, infused flower, infused pre-rolls, and cannabis concentrates that you can download here. Choose “Product List for Bulletin 2023-01” and download the spreadsheet.
