Cannabis GAP - Good Agricultural Practices
Global Gap is an organization that publishes voluntary standards aimed at setting minimum standards for agricultural produce (such as fresh fruits, vegetables, livestock, flowers, cereals, etc.) at every stage of production, in order to maintain the quality of the product and to protect the health of the consumer Good Agricultural Practices ), Good Handling Practices (GHP).
In accordance with the same procedures, strict preservation of optimal and uniform environmental conditions is required throughout the process for defined and uniform work processes based on documented standard working protocols. GAP determined that each stage of the process (as defined in GAP) must be documented in order to demonstrate compliance with its instructions and to prove the veracity of the reports.
The implementation of the GAP standards is essential for medical products, herbal supplements and cosmetic products, as well as for the international trade of agricultural produce to developed countries, as it ensures the quality of produce and produce.
Consumers today are increasingly aware of the quality of the product they consume - they are interested in how they grow, manufacture, and how they are handled within the supply chain. GAP provides consumers with the quality mark required by them. A farmer who implements the GAP standards produces a quality product over time.

One growth area size, and during the growing season or time of growth, and that concentrations of substances CBD, THC and - CBN
This quantity has been tested.
C. The growth will be done in planning, production-oriented, at the specified growth rate of a defined and marked growth unit. Separation to batches
It is necessary that if there is a morphologically tangible time span between the tumor units, it is possible that the agro-
(Such as growth methods and dates, feeding and irrigation systems) will have an effect on concentrations of the chemical substances
And active substances in cannabis plants.
D. Planting will be done in growing tanks containing a suitable breeding medium, the optimal substrate is one that is able to hold good water
And feeding elements on the one hand, and on the other, allows drainage of the excess water and allows ventilation of the root system.
God. The substrate will be free of heavy metals or residues of pesticides and other chemicals.
and. Cannabis will be irrigated with fresh water (drinking water).
G. Water and fertilizer will be provided in accordance with the plant and in accordance with the vegetative development stages, permitted synthetic fertilizers
And fertilizers allowed for use in organic farming. It is recommended to install control and monitoring systems for water tables and basic dishes
The feed. Avoid excess dishes or cause a deficiency of one of the macronutrients and micro-elements.
H. Medical cannabis requires careful attention to the residual issues of fertilizers, pesticides and plant protection. In order to reach
The required quality requires the monitoring and documentation of harmful and appropriate pesticides.
ninth. Strict sanitation in the environment of growing houses or growing areas is a necessary condition for the prevention of weed and the accumulation of insects
Which can invade the area and damage cannabis plants. Keep the environment clean and avoid planting different plants
Near the breeding sites and also to destroy bad grass that develops nearby and serves as host to various pests.
Y. The use of the crop farms and their surroundings will be limited to pesticides, as detailed, and the level of irrigations permitted as defined
In the procedure. The registration and documentation of the pesticide regulations carried out shall be kept at a time and the name of the material, doses, and quantities shall be included
And there he hit.
K. The pesticide regime in the growing stages of medical cannabis, will be as follows:
A. Pest Control:
i) At the vegetative (vegetative) stage, the pest will be in accordance with the pesticide regulations customary in herbivorous plants
ii. Beginning from the beginning of the fertilization phase, the pest will be in accordance with the agricultural pesticides regulations
(iii) at least 21 days prior to the beginning of harvest, the use of pesticides shall be strictly prohibited
(Use of natural enemies).
B. Disease control:
i. The pest control shall be in accordance with the pesticide regulations customary in spice plants.

L. As long as a label for a pesticide designated for cannabis has not been approved - in accordance with the Plant Protection Regulations)
(Packaging), 5737-1977, more in the growing stages of medical cannabis, the use of the authorized preparations according to the guidelines:
"Destruction of medical cannabis lesions", published by the Ministry of Agriculture - SHAM and the Chief Medical Officer.
M. There will be a documentation of the pesticide regime.
Hand. There will be a regime and documentation of pollution and waste management.
