Not only is hemp in the process of transforming the nation’s economy, it is transforming our environment. However, with its ability to transform our environment, you need to make sure you stay safe! Hemp is a bioaccumulator, absorbing both the good and the bad from our planet. 🌍
How does hemp impact the environment?
It is such a long list, but we will touch on one of the most interesting ways right now
As man made waste has increased, so have the toxic metals in our environment! Hemp absorbs these toxic metals! Due to this, if you are consuming hemp oil, CBD, THC, etc., or putting hemp based products on your skin, understanding where the hemp was grown is super important. Otherwise you may be ingesting nasty heavy metals like lead and mercury! 🤨
Three key ways to stay safe:
1. Look for products that are third party lab tested
2. Buy from reputable stores
3. Understand where the product was sourced - currently EU has very strict farming standards with the United States close behind. - 4 days ago
