PGR Problem Weed and How to Spot Them

Marijuana is a natural alternative medicine that has valuable healing properties for people with a wide range of medical conditions and symptoms. Many people switch to marijuana from opioids or narcotics because it lacks chemicals that make other drugs addictive.

People are becoming more conscious about what they put into their bodies each year, and concern for genetically modified food has increased over time. But did you know you also have to be worried about genetically modified marijuana?

GMO weed is not technically on the market, but people who cultivate marijuana are using plant growth regulators which can change the chemical makeup of the plant. Cultivators use PGRs to inflate their profits, but it can harm the health of the people who consume it.

What Is a PGR?

A plant growth regulator can speed up the growth of plants, thereby increasing the yield and profits. They are used with fruits and vegetables as well. However, the chemicals in PGRs are often toxic to humans, especially when smoked.

Not to mention, PGR marijuana may lose its THC and does not have the regular amount of cannabinoids and terpenes. Cannabinoids and terpenes are essential to the healing properties in marijuana.

Therefore, you could be smoking toxic chemicals with no medicinal benefits when you think you are using medicine. These synthetic chemicals disrupt the development of THC in cannabis.

How to Identify PGR Marijuana

Luckily, there are ways to spot PGR cannabis from a mile away. Here are some things to look for:

  1. No crystals

  2. No smell

  3. Excessive red or brown hairs

  4. Very dense or heavy buds

  5. A wet texture

  6. Chemical taste
