Foreign matter contamination refers to the presence of any unwanted substances in cannabis, such as molds, pesticides, heavy metals, or other contaminants.

The potential health risks associated with foreign matter contamination make it crucial for cultivators, manufacturers, and regulators to implement strict quality control measures. These measures include thorough testing and inspection procedures to identify and eliminate any foreign matter that may be present in cannabis products.

Foreign matter contamination can occur at various stages of the production process, from cultivation to processing and packaging. Factors such as improper storage conditions, inadequate sanitation practices, or exposure to environmental contaminants can contribute to this issue.
