Clean, Natural Cannabis
Unless otherwise specified directly on our packaging, Plantworks does not use commercial pesticides inside our farm.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has developed the standards regulating pesticide use in the cannabis industry. Some background is here.
For plant health, we keep Organic, Cold-Pressed Neem Oil at our farm (WSDA #84181-2), available to use on newly potted/baby plants only. Info on Neem can be found here.
A heavily diluted, very lightly-applied Neem application is of great use during the early spring months, to ensure newly potted baby plants are not susceptible to any insects or molds that may drift in from the outdoors.
We rarely use Neem anymore. Being a small-footprint, soil-free farm and having solid cleaning and production protocols allows us to avoid the problems that other cannabis farms may deal with, like powdery mildew, fungus gnats, thrips, aphids, spider mites, broad mites etc.
