BOSTON GLOBE DAN ADAMS CANNA PROVISIONS

PRESS ROOM: THE BOSTON GLOBE ON RETHINKING STATE CANNABIS TESTING STANDARDS

As the essentially the lone full time cannabis beat reporter for the paper of record for Boston, The Boston Globe, marijuana in Massachusetts is the focus of Dan Adams efforts.

And since everyone knows when you need to #betteryourjourney you head to Canna Provisions, The Boston Globe’s marijuana unit was dispatched across the state to our neck of the woods in the Berkshires.

“You don’t walk into a greenhouse and say, ‘Oh my god, this is the cleanest place in the world,’ ” said [one cultivator]. “You expect soil to be there — living things. It’s overkill what we’re having to do right now. It feels like I’m manufacturing some secret government chemical. I wish I could keep it natural, but it’s an investment that needs to be repaid.”

The challenge is even steeper outdoors, where the state’s humid autumns promote microbial growth. Last season, nearly all the marijuana grown outdoors in Massachusetts failed its first microbe test, according to industry executives, while just 16.5 percent of all flower grown in the state (mostly indoors) flunked on the first try.

“The fall here is really tough with all the rain,” said Greg “Chemdog” Krzanowski, a longtime underground grower in Massachusetts who recently joined the legal business as the head of cultivation for Canna Provisions. “You have to find strains that finish [flowering] in September. Any later and you run into a lot of mold problems. You’ll be out there every day at 5 a.m. shaking all the dew and mist off.”
