If it's not handled properly, weed can collect toxins, pesticides, and other harmful chemicals that can have long-term impacts on your health and well-being.

Using mass spectrometers and powerful microscopes, ProVerde screens weed for bacteria and mycotoxins to make sure your weed is actually safe to smoke.
