"Soil contamination occurs in most countries with a lot of farmland, heavy industry and mining. In Ukraine, for example, which has all three, about 8% of the land is contaminated. A chemical dump in upstate New York called Love Canal resulted in the poisoning of many residents and the creation of the “superfund”, a federal programme to clean up contaminated soil. But the biggest problems occur in China, the world’s largest producer of food and of heavy industrial commodities such as steel and cement."
In 2014, the Chinese government published a national soil study showing that 19.4% of farmland was contaminated by chemical pollutants and heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and arsenic. An earlier study in 2010 showed that 18% of China's river water was too polluted for use in agriculture - but it is used anyway. To add further injury, their land is being poisoned by sewage irrigation - when wastewater is used to irrigate crops because fresh water is not available.
We love the hemp oil and salve products! My husband hasn’t slept this good in a long time! Reducing the arthritis has been a great plus as well!!
So guess what – any of the terrible stuff that hemp absorbs from the soil goes right into your hemp oil. That’s why it’s imperative that you know where and how your hemp was grown. One way to ensure you are getting the highest quality CBD hemp oil is to purchase only from organic growers within the United States and Canada where agricultural regulations for hemp are strict.
Because there are a lot of bad actors in the CBD world, good actors like Montana Pure Botanicals spend thousands of dollars each year to have their CBD hemp oils tested by third party laboratories. These test results are then provided to consumers in reports called COAs, Certificates of Analysis. COAs provide a full breakdown of the cannabinoid and terpene content (which is really neat!) as well as testing results for toxins, microbials, and heavy metals found in the hemp oil. Even companies that post their COAs often show significant heavy metal content, so be sure to actually take a look at these reports!
This face oil is the best! I have rosacea and have tried all kinds of CBD products and this one is pure magic. It soaks right in and instantly helps melt away redness.
