In response to the moldy weed complaints, RedeCan Pharm released a statement defending their procedures. "Prior to shipment, this product lot was rigorously inspected and tested by an independent third-party lab to meet the regulatory requirements set out by Health Canada", they said. "Product was then packed in a secure facility under sanitary conditions and sealed through the lid of a closed container with an induction seal."

Moving forward, the weed producing company has said it will take additional measures to address the mold issues. They will now have the product tested by an independent third party to figure out how their weed became affected with mold.
