All Oregon Cannabis Must Now Be Tested For Pesticides

Beginning August 30, 2017, Oregon now requires all cannabis product batches be tested for pesticides according to the the Oregon Health Authority. The temporary rules that had governed testing for pesticides expired and now the permanent rules are in place and must be followed. The requirement also applies to untested product that was collected for sampling before August 30.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission issued a notice on August 11th explaining the change:

“In October 2016, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission issued a finding that the pesticide testing requirement would be lowered to a minimum of one-third of batches of usable marijuana within every harvest lot, due to insufficient lab capacity.
