As a hemp farmer, you know that it’s important to have your products lab tested for legality reasons. It’s illegal in most states for hemp products to have THC levels that exceed 0.3%. But did you know that testing also ensures that your products aren’t toxic?
Hemp is a phytoremediator and hyperaccumulator. That means that it absorbs toxins from the soil. The good news is, it may be able to help clean up the environment. The bad news is, it can store toxic compounds and be harmful to consumers. That’s why it’s so important to have your CBD seeds and clones tested.
Hemp is a hyperaccumulator. That means when planted in contaminated soil, it will absorb and vacuum out the toxic substances. This means farmers could use it to clean up polluted soil, so long as the plants are discarded safely afterward. But it also means that farmers need to be extra careful about ensuring that the plants intended for human or animal consumption don’t contain toxins.
So you see, it’s important to have your hemp lab-tested not only to ensure that it’s compliant, but also safe. Farmers should be wary of purchasing CBD seeds and clones from questionable sources. It’s important to make sure that the products you’re buying have been tested and come with a Certificate of Analysis.
