Ninety per cent of rolling paper products tested by California’s SC Laboratories Inc. contained heavy metals and eight per cent of those exceeded allowable limits under the state’s inhalable cannabis requirements.
The company analyzed more than 100 products purchased from Amazon and various retailers in Santa Cruz, Calif., according to Ganjapreneur. The overall analysis considered 70 rolling papers, 25 pre-rolled cones, 20 wraps and three cellulose-based papers, the publication notes, (101 products were tested for heavy metal).
Just a couple of the unidentified products had “heavy metal levels more than 100 times worse than state limits,” according to Forbes. The levels were sufficient that SC Laboratories “recommended consumers treat them like seafood containing high levels of mercury, and limit consumption.”
