New medical marijuana law could have a major impact on growers and dispensaries

New medical marijuana law could have a major impact on growers and dispensaries

All marijuana products sold by a grower or processor will be required to be tested by an Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) licensed laboratory.

Right now, there are 800 growers in Oklahoma, and 10 new state-licensed laboratory’s.

The new law takes effect on April 1 and requires all medical marijuana to be tested under new state guidelines.

All marijuana products sold by a grower or processor will be required to be tested by an Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) licensed laboratory.

Right now, there are 800 growers in Oklahoma, and 10 new state-licensed laboratory’s.

There are concerns the new process could be slow, but many dispensaries and growers already met or are near the new state standard.

On the dispensary side, HempRX has always tested its product but its lab was just recently licensed through the state.

So, its question is if they will need to re-test older products.

“That’s a big chunk of money to bite, and these products aren’t cheap..and it’s not cheap to get them to the patient,” said Lauren Millers, Owner of HempRx.

Either way, both said the focus is on the patient and making sure their needs are met as this industry continues to transform and grow.

The importance of organically grown cannabis

The importance of organically grown cannabis

If a single, inorganically grown apple only had a single drop of pesticide on it — as it is by itself this is not ideal, but not catastrophically dangerous — it would literally take 500 of these pesticide-laced apples to cause a frightening reaction.

However, in the process of extractions (like those used in medicinal cannabis extraction), 1,000 apples are essentially smashed together and condensed down and put into a shot glass and made very easy to consume all at once. Now you have a circumstance where you can be exposed to a massive amount of a dangerous substance.

This is essentially the concern when it comes to patients using medical cannabis products not sourced from farms with organic growing methods.

As more people move away from the traditional consumption methods of cannabis, the extraction and refinement of these products warrant responsibility back to the growers.

The organic growing method movement is not a new idea. We’ve all heard of it, and most of us have looked at the apple that’s $1.25 more than the inorganic version and asked ourselves “what’s the difference?”

To those unaware of the truth and judging simply off physical appearance, there doesn’t appear to be a huge difference; however, at the cellular level, it’s apples and oranges. Organic growing methods for cannabis are even more important, and the reasons why are so significant that, to be honest, you should be afraid. The truth is fascinatingly terrifying.

Many chemicals used in traditional agriculture pose significant health risks to every person and animal that could even, potentially, come into contact with them.

In cannabis, these chemicals are applied throughout the plant and flower, and because the entire flower is processed, consumed or smoked, the patient would be exposed to every molecule of every substance that the plant has been treated or “laced” with.

Due to the chemical structure of the beneficial compounds in cannabis, these compounds must either be concentrated out, vaporized or burned.

Simply put: Some inorganic grow-method chemicals combined with the necessary consumption methods required to benefit from medicinal cannabis may put patients at a significant increased risk of developing other conditions while trying to treat their primary complaint. Justly, this is the reason that some medical professionals oppose medical cannabis, not because of its debunked, wives’ tale taboos.

The danger of these chemicals is no secret. Growers who use the chemicals are instructed by the companies who make the chemicals to wear a level of protective gear rated higher than what the Centers for Disease Control recommends for health care workers who are working with Ebola.

Full, impenetrable body suits, gloves, goggles, waterproof boots and carbon respirators are required just to be able to spray these chemicals onto plants, and this is just to prevent a microscopic droplet of it from touching the skin.

This begs the question, “Why are nonorganic method growers so afraid to get these chemicals on their skin or in their bodies?” The answer is disturbingly obvious. If the grower, the professional on the subject, avoids these chemicals getting onto or inside them at all costs, every patient should, too.

The most concerning issues with ingestion of nonorganic cannabis isn’t a factor that most have ever considered. Terminal patients, HIV/AIDS patients and cancer patients have compromised immune systems.

The common cold or even an infection from something as trivial as a paper cut can kill these patients; in fact, they do kill them by the thousands every day.

Many of these chemicals carry the warning of carcinogens and are known to cause cancer to begin with.

Patients need to be aware that they do have a choice for a safer, healthier and better-quality cannabis product.

Tulsa Area Farm Aims To Be The Standard For Medical Marijuana

Tulsa Area Farm Aims To Be The Standard For Medical Marijuana

TULSA, Oklahoma – A new way of growing medical cannabis is making its way to Tulsa. Green Prairie Farms says instead of using chemicals, they’re using living soil to grow what they say is the highest quality medical cannabis in the state.

Bryan Wachsman says Green Prairie Farms is truly the first of its kind in Oklahoma.

“We are the only one in Oklahoma growing with a living soil system at this time. So, we are very unique in the fact that we are choosing to grow high-end cannabis,” said Wachsman.

With medical marijuana freshly legalized, Wachsman says there’s no law in place to regulate the product yet.

“It’s kind of up to the cultivator himself or herself to morally grow the cannabis in a medicinal manner,” said Wachsman.

He says Green Prairie Farms is growing fully organic, pesticide-free “craft” cannabis.

“Really, the secret sauce is what I have here today,” said Wachsman. “We’re using worms, we’re using white springtail mites, we’re using the whole soil food web.”

Wachsman says they’re truly allowing Mother Nature to grow the plant.

“Instead of the farmer trying to pretend that we know what’s best for the cannabis plant, we just allow Mother Nature to take hold,” he said

Those interested will have to wait six months for the plant not only to grow, but to be tested, and “cured” correctly which Wachsman says will make the medicine taste better.

“We take pride in the lost art of curing the cannabis in the correct manner, so we don’t rush the cure,” said Wachsman.

He says you’ll be able to find their products at a good price at dispensaries across the state, but he reminds buyers that cheaper doesn’t always mean better.

“We pride ourselves on not being the cheapest guys in town because we’re going out of our way to provide the best medicine possible,” said Wachsman.
