Grow Clean Hemp
Hemp Industry Daily has a great post to help ensure that your hemp crop is ready for market– before you plant…
“Hemp that comes from polluted land such as industrial areas of the U.S., China and India can test as “clean” or absent of heavy metals and pesticides…
– However, when processing the same “clean” plant material for cannabinoid and terpene extraction, the heavy metals and pesticides will spike. Pesticide remediation is common, and any infected plant material should be destroyed and never reach consumers.”
Hemp has an incredible ability to absorb nutrients from the soil by the process of phytoaccumulation. From here phytovolatilization releases toxins into the air, then phytodegadation is hemp’s ability to break down and destroy contaminants by metabolism.
What to look for when picking land
What are you and your farmers doing to ensure a safe and effective hemp crop?
A full land background check can be a logical precaution. Always test soils for:
– Heavy Metals
– PH levels
– Nutrient Levels
Avoiding heavy-metal hyper accumulation in your hemp crop is all about doing the research and using good hemp cultivation practices.
The Hemp Collective insists on full-panel COA’s (certificate of origin), we know the pesticides used, methods of harvest, as well as growing location. Being here in Oregon ensures you some of the highest quality hemp biomass and products in the world.
