luckily in los angeles there are several medical dispensaries that not only test each batch as it comes in they post the results. they usualy test for fungus and mold, pesticides and the cannabinoid profile and percentage . the dispensaries that do this have huge following with their clientele base. the ones that don't tend to fall off the map. not sure if its like that in the medical cultures of other cities but in la people ask and discriminate.

But growers do not want chemicals on their flowers. If any pesticides are used they are generally all natural and chemical free.
Raber noted that within California any use of pesticides on cannabis plants is illegal. However, as cannabis cultivation also remains illegal on the federal level, as well as in California state aside from specified medical grows, there is no oversight in place to regulate what is sprayed on cannabis plants. Further, cannabis growers can’t legally apply to be certified organic when they aren’t using pesticides or other chemicals. Without independent laboratory testing like Raber’s, there is no way to tell whether or not a bud is covered in toxic chemicals.
