In Canada, 1000’s of legal patients have been poisoned by contaminated legal Cannabis. The first one to be caught was Organigram, the only producer who was labeled organic!! The rep told me that they used Ladybugs not pesticides so maybe the little Ladybugs were flying around with spray bottles full of Myclobutanil cuz their Cannabis was found to be contaminated after they sold a bunch of it to Aurora, another legal producer. Aurora tested it, found the contamination, told Organigram and Health Cda. Btw, Aurora refunded all of their sales while Organigram only gave credits. Like anyone would risk smoking pesticide laced bud!!
Myclobutanil is a common pesticide found in Eagle 20 that is fine on plants as long as they aren’t going to be smoked. So it’s is never used on Tobacco.
There have now been about 8 recalls for contaminated Cannabis from the huge producers the Canadian Govt has allowed to grow and supply this medicine. Health Canada did nothing for the patients and a law suit is still going on though that recall happened in early January 2017.
Symptoms include nausea, loss of appetite, subsequent weight & muscle loss. Some have trouble breathing, brain fog, heart palps, anxiety. Loss of appetite can very quickly turn into a confused relationship with food which has its own issues.
The problem is that there was no testing at the time to test if you had consumed this chemical so no real compensation happened and no real fines happened either. In fact, organigram bought a whole chain of legalizing clinic shortly after that recall. No refunds, saving their coin for this acquisition.
Basically, Canada is still a long way from treating Medical Cannabis the same as every other medicine prescribed there.
