Hemp not only requires a lot of synthetic fertilizers to grow it’s also a bioaccumulator, which means it acts like a sponge soaking up everything from the soil—glyphosate and all. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. If you’re not using organic or glyphosate residue free products, then there’s a high chance the CBD you’re using will contain glyphosate.
America’s hemp movement has come a long way in the past 25 years. Yet there’s a growing concern among conscious consumers about the fact that the hemp plant is a major bio-accumulator that concentrates pesticides and other contaminates. Shall we choose hemp CBD flowers grown in RoundUp-soaked non-organic soils, or select those grown on organically farmed land?
