Particularly when using CBD to relieve symptoms or medical conditions, organic CBD is vital. Certified organic oils contain zero pesticides or germicides, which can be absorbed by the plants during the growing process.
CBD produced overseas, especially in the Far East, is often industrially farmed in contaminated soil. The plants are a bioaccumulator, which means they absorb chemicals and minerals from the earth and the atmosphere around them.
Non-organic hemp and cannabis plants can therefore contain dangerous heavy metals, including lead and arsenic.
