UPDATED: Statement on Unauthorized Use of Pesticides in WA Cannabis

Hashtag has recently been made aware that some of the cannabis products we carry were not made in compliance with state law regarding pesticide use. The article published by The Stranger on Feb. 11 was our first notice of such practices. These findings were then confirmed through discussions with our licensed vendors and the publication of the Feb. 12 article from The Seattle Times.

At Hashtag, our foremost priority is helping adults connect to products that are right for them and safe to consume. Our customers deserve to know what goes into their cannabis, and so do we. As a result, Hashtag has decided to immediately stop all sales of Dama and BMF (Liberty Reach/JUJU) products until we can ensure those products are safe. Several edibles vendors have notified us that some of their products may contain oil from these suppliers. We have temporarily halted their sales as a precautionary measure until we can certify they are free of the banned pesticides.

Hashtag values the trust customers place in us to carry safe, high quality products. We will maintain open and transparent communication with our customers regarding affected products going forward and continue to uphold the highest standards and integrity in the products we carry and the service we provide.  We will release a finalized list of our affected products once they have been identified via the Washington State traceability system.
