PGR Problem Weed & How to Spot Them

People are switching from prescription drugs to medical marijuana because it is a natural option with few side effects. Americans are becoming increasingly concerned about health each year, and rightfully so.

GMO stands for a genetically modified organism, and you may recognize the term from the grocery store. Many people know GMOs are bad for us to consume in our food, but what about in our medicine?

That’s right, GMO weed exists, and it is most commonly referred to as PGR weed (plant growth regulators). Cultivation centers may use GMOs to chemically change the structure of the cannabis plant in order to yield more product. Adding chemicals to the plant will increase the growth speed which means more profit for these companies.

Why Is PGR Weed Bad?

The chemicals introduced into cannabis plants when GMOs are added can seriously damage the medical value of the plant. The plant’s cannabinoids, terpenes, and trichomes are removed and diluted, which takes the benefits away from medicinal cannabis.

PGR weed typically does not get you high and it puts your health at risk; you are burning toxic chemicals and inhaling them. Not to mention, PGR weed is a total waste of money. But don't worry, because there are some ways you can spot PGR weed to avoid it altogether!

How to Identify PGR Weed

Luckily, PGR weed usually looks pretty different from normal weed. PGR weed is known to have lots of red or brown hairs, no crystals, and no smell. These are all things you should look out for when using medical cannabis.

Consumers also report that PGR weed can feel dense or heavy with a wet or spongy texture. It is also possible for PGR weed to have a chemical taste or smell to it.
