Nevada Regulators Warn of Unapproved Pesticide Use Affecting Hundreds of Products

Nevada regulators have warned that cannabis harvested by Clark Natural Medicinal Solutions from July 2021 through January 2023 used an unapproved pesticide. The regulators recommend that consumers avoid any affected products.

Full story after the jump.

Nevada officials last week issued a bulletin warning about the use of unapproved pesticides on products harvested by Clark Natural Medicinal Solutions between July 23, 2021, and January 5, 2023. 

The affected product list includes 118 edible products, ranging from gummies to chocolate bars, to the brand’s vegan products; 42 infused pre-rolls; and 222 concentrates, including vape cartridges. The products are carried at 105 dispensaries throughout the state, according to Cannabis Compliance Board (CCB) data. Sales of the products occurred between August 31, 2021, through January 9, 2023.  

The CCB is advising customers to avoid the products and noted that the pesticide in question, Ethephon, is not on the list of pesticides that testing facilities must test for, and their test methods are not set up for the detection of Ethephon.       

“There is no reason to believe the cannabis sales facilities or cannabis testing facilities had any knowledge of the use of this unapproved pesticide.” — CCB, Public Health and Safety Bulletin 2023-01 

The notice is the first of 2023 for Nevada regulators. The CCB issued two health and safety bulletins last year; three in 2021, and one in 2020. There have been no adverse effects reported by consumers associated with the Clark products.
