Gloves for Cannabis/CBD

Whether you’re weeding or tending to your favorite weed (see what we did there?) you need a good pair of gloves to keep your hands safe while working. It’s about more than just comfort--it’s about ensuring safety and the quality of your final cannabis products. Our cannabis industry clients depend on our gloves to do the job safely and at the right cost. 

Why Wear Gloves for Harvesting Cannabis?

When you’re growing cannabis for a business, you need to ensure high-quality plants. The best way to protect against unwelcome contaminants is to protect your hands and plants by wearing gloves. Here are a few essential reasons why cannabis growers and harvesters should always wear gloves while inspecting cannabis products. 

Bacteria and Fungi: Like any other gardener, farmer, and grower, cannabis workers have to be on the lookout for common bacterial and fungal infections lurking in their plants, soil, and tools. The best way to avoid infections on you or your plants is to prevent them from taking hold in the first place with sanitary gloves. Gloves protect against pesticides, too.

Injury Prevention: Between sharp tools, sharp plant matter, and good old fashioned accidents, injuries are a common feature of the trimming process. The right glove material will have high tensile strength and puncture resistance, thus protecting your hands against injuries. 

Critter Control: While you do your best to keep rent-free tenants out of your cannabis fields, you’re likely to encounter at least a few pests while trimming plants. These can range from small critters (like spiders) to large and potentially threatening animals like snakes. 

Best Gloves for Cannabis Cultivation

Latex, Vinyl, or Nitrile Gloves?

In the cannabis industry, you need sanitary protection and a glove that’s durable, which makes nitrile gloves an ideal choice. Nitrile is the strongest material on the glove market, with impressive tensile strength and unbeatable puncture resistance. Latex can also work, as it is stronger than vinyl gloves and offers greater tactile sensitivity than nitrile, but it’s not as tough and it isn’t allergen friendly. 

Even if you and your employees don’t have latex allergies, you have no way of knowing whether someone who handles your cannabis products down the processing line will have a latex allergy. You’re better off not taking the risk. 

Disposable or Reusable?

If you want to prevent cross-contamination or if you’re handling chemicals, you should always opt for disposable gloves. These can be just as durable as reusable gloves, but you don’t need to worry about cross-contamination issues once the job is done.
