Organic Hemp: Not All Organic CBD Is Created Equal & Why That Matters

We’ve all heard about the benefits of organic fruits and vegetables but did you know that, when it comes to CBD, it makes a big difference how hemp is grown?

While every plant absorbs nutrients from the soil, hemp is a powerful “bioaccumulator.” That means it’s especially good at absorbing toxins, including heavy metals, from the ground. That’s great news if you want to clean the soil with hemp. It also means CBD consumers need to be careful. We don’t want to take unwanted chemicals or toxins into our bodies with our CBD supplements.

ICYMI: DEA And Cannabis Research Still Lousy Bedfellows

Over a span of five decades, the DEA has maintained a research monopoly over limited amounts of standardized cannabis cultivated by a single academic institution.

One of the main reasons why “marijuana” remains a federally illegal, Schedule I controlled substance is that, according to the Feds, it has no currently accepted medical use. At the same time, because of the federal illegality of cannabis, the federal government has routinely denied third party requests for further research in regards to its potential medical benefits, among other health and safety impacts.
