Heavy Metals

What are heavy metals?

Heavy metals refer to metallic elements that can be present as contaminants in cannabis plants or cannabis-derived products. These heavy metals, including lead (Pb), arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), and others, can find their way into cannabis through various sources such as soil, water, fertilizers, or environmental pollution.

Heavy metal contamination in cannabis can occur due to factors such as contaminated soil, the use of certain fertilizers or pesticides, or environmental pollution from nearby industrial activities. These contaminants can be absorbed by the cannabis plant and accumulate in its tissues, including the flowers and leaves.
