Contamination: The Risk to the Cannabis Industry
Controlling contamination has become vital to the safety of the many products and uses for the cannabis plant and it’s derivatives. This includes ensuring safe and clean operations, facilities, and processes when dealing with cultivation, processing, and packaging.
Some of the most common types of contamination found in Cannabis production include, pesticides and herbicides, heavy metals, microbial contaminants, residual solvents, mycotoxins, foreign matter, and residues from cleaning chemicals. The presence of contamination, including cross-contamination or pollination, in Cannabis can lead to reduced crop yields and decreased potency, as well as more significant effects such as life-threatening illnesses.
The risks to a company’s brand, their profitability, and their people are too consequential to be ignored. Effective contamination control is essential for facilities to minimize these harmful outcomes.
Dycem antimicrobial mats, implemented as part of a contamination control strategy, offer optimal support in reducing the risk of contamination.
