A licenced marijuana producer that recalled an entire strain of its weed after some Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) customers complained that it contained mould is now trying to ease fears after online reports that bugs were found in some of its buds.
RedeCan told CityNews on Friday that it uses a tiny predatory mite called persimilis to prevent crop-destroying spider mite infestations and that “on a microscopic level it is possible that this could be on our product.”
“We stand behind our product and our organic type of way of growing,” RedeCan President and Master grower Rick Redecop told CityNews during a tour of its Pelham Ont., facility on Friday.
“We know that this does not have any sort of ill effects. It is actually a safer product because we don’t use things like pesticides.”
