The state of California requires all cannabis goods batches to be tested for residual pesticide (s) prior to their release for sale to the public. The full list of tests can be found here, on our California Cannabis Testing page.
The required cannabis residual pesticide testing classifies pesticides into two categories.
Category I residual pesticides must be undetected, meaning under .10 µg/g.
|Category I Residual Pesticide||CAS No.|
Category II residual pesticides must be under their respective action levels.
In addition to residual pesticide testing, California also tests for residual solvents and processing chemicals. Similar to residual pesticides, solvents and processing chemicals are classified in one of two categories.
Category I solvents and processing chemicals must be undetected, meaning under 1.0 µg/g.
Category II solvents and processing chemicals must be under their respective action levels.
|Category II Residual solvent or processing chemical||CAS No.||Action Level µg/g|
