Nevada issues public health advisory for cannabis treated with toxic pesticides

The Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board issued a public health advisory Thursday after receiving notification that some cannabis products were treated with an unapproved pesticide.

According to the health notice, Clark Natural Medicinal Solutions, LLC treated cannabis between July 23, 2021, and January 5, 2023. This includes infused edibles, infused flowers, infused pre-rolls, and cannabis concentrates.

Affected products are believed to have been sold between August 31, 2021 and January 9, 2023.

Ethephon is a plant growth regulator used to promote fruit ripening and flowering induction and is moderately toxic when inhaled, ingested or in contact with skin, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

All cannabis products sold by licensed establishments must have a product label near the top of the packaging indicating the growing establishment where the cannabis was grown and the date of harvest.

“There is no reason to believe that the cannabis sales facilities or cannabis testing facilities were aware of the use of this unapproved pesticide; Ethephon is not on the list of pesticide testing facilities, and their testing methods are not configured to detect Ethephon,” the public health advisory added.

There were no known reports of illness when the advisory was published on Thursday afternoon.
