Heavy metals are absorbed and stored in medical cannabis plants through contaminated land, soil and water. These toxins are then passed on to humans and are responsible for causing acute and chronic diseases including cancer. Unregulated hemp-derived products are especially prone to heavy metals contamination due to the large amounts of plant material required to extract hemp-derived byproducts. We utilize Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Adsorption Spectroscopy (ICP-AAS) and X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) to test for heavy meal contamination at concentrations as low as one part per billion.
