Here at Herbal Solutions all of our medicine is safety screened for pathogenic molds. In addition, we have a breakthrough new way of self-titration. All cannabis flowers and concentrates will be tested for THC and CBD percentages. You may ask what does this mean for you as a patient? What it means is that you will be able to self regulate the amount of THC or CBD that you ingest. We believe this is extremely important for the patient know how much is needed for their particular ailments. The breakdown is this: one gram is equivalent to 1,000mg. Therefore, if a cannabis strain has 20% THC and 1% CBD one gram consumed is the equivalent of 200mg of THC and 10mg of CBD.
Herbal Solutions is testing all cannabis flowers and concentrates for bacteria and fungal contaminants, including pathogenic molds. One of the contaminants is mildew, which is a fungus which proliferates in cold, damp conditions. Part of the mold which forms mildew is something called the aspergillus, which causes a rare but serious disease called allergic broncho-pulmonary aspergillosis. This is an allergy to the aspergillus which causes lung damage, and usually affects asthma sufferers. There is no cure for this disease yet, and at the moment it is treated with steroids and a drug called sporanox.
A clinical study on the development of an invasive pulmonary aspergillosis in a patient using illicitly obtained marijuana as an antiemetic during combination antitumor therapy for small cell lung cancer showed that although this patient had multiple risk factors implicated in the development of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis, the infectious potential of inhaled unregulated marijuana must be recognized. Further study to prevent this potential health risk is needed in order to preserve medical effectiveness of marijuana. Studies are currently being conducted using the gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC/MS) and flame ionization detector (GC/FID).
