As any farmer growing industrial hemp can attest, the hemp plant is a powerful bio-accumulator. What this means is that any chemical, fertilizer, or toxin in the soil in which it is planted, the plant will rapidly absorb it. The hemp plant roots will pull it from the ground and accumulate it in plant’s cells. This makes hemp wonderful for phytoremediation, where pollution or chemicals can actually be cleaned up from the earth by planting hemp that draws it up from the ground, cleansing the soil in the process. The hemp plant literally “soaks up” contaminants from the earth.
Unfortunately, this tends to concentrate such unwanted substances in the cannabinoids of the hemp, much like sushi from fish in polluted waters can have very high levels of mercury. For this reason, it’s important to use hemp that is grown on pure farmland, to avoid getting higher concentrations of these chemicals in the CBD that is extracted. Our full-scale testing procedures check for the presence of such contaminants, both at harvest and during bottling of our CBD oils.
