Minimal Risk Pesticides

Minimal risk pesticides (sometimes called section 25b pesticides) are pesticides that have been determined by the EPA to “pose little to no risk to human health or the environment.” These pesticides are important to cannabis, because they are the only pesticides that either have very few or no safety concerns. In the state of Washington, for example, these are some of the only pesticides permitted for use on cannabis.
