A heavy metals test will identify any potential contamination such as arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury, which can be harmful.
Pollutants from industry, pesticides from agriculture, as well as vehicle exhaust fumes, can increase levels of heavy metals in the environment resulting in potential contamination of the soil and water supply. All plants absorb heavy metals and other compounds from the soil, especially hemp. The special ability of hemp to absorb heavy metals from the soil make it important to do heavy metals testing for CBD products.
We test quantitatively for 23 different metal impurities that can be the result of plant cultivation or the manufacturing process.
Metal impurities include: aluminium, arsenic, boron, cadmium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, magnesium, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, nickel, phosphorous, silicon, silver, sodium, sulphur, tin, titanium, vanadium, zinc.
