Hemp Removes Toxic Metals & Radiation from Soil

Hemp continues to break the restricting chains of the government as studies prove to reveal more benefits of industrial Hemp!

Hemp has the ability to remove toxic metals and radiation from the soil. According to Seshata of Mint Press News, “The process of using plants to clean polluted soil is called phytoremediation. According to a 2014 report from Nation of Change’s Christina Sarich, two members of the mustard family are more frequently used in phytoremediation, but cannabis has shown some promise because of its hardiness to toxins and quick growth rates.”

As Hemp grows, it remediates the soil & eats CO2 at the same time. This calls for great soil revitalization. A great place to plant industrial Hemp to regenerate the soil, and overall ecosystem, would be near Fukushima. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was an energy accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant initiated primarily by the tsunami following the Tōhoku earthquake on March 11, 2011. The Fukushima disaster is the largest nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster and the second disaster to be given the Level 7 event classification of the International Nuclear Event Scale. Though there have been no fatalities linked to radiation due to the accident, the eventual number of cancer deaths, according to the Linear no-threshold theory of radiation safety, that will be caused by the accident is expected to be around 130-640 people in the years and decades ahead.

As time slowly begins to reveal the true potentials of Hemp, people are realizing that “Hemp is proving to be one of the best phyto-remediative plants we have been able to find,” said Slavik Dushenkov, a research scientist with PHYTOTECH. Hemp literally has the power to suck all the bad toxins and nuclear radiations out of the soil. Even better, after Hemp is used in phytoremediation, it can be used to create biofuel. It’s like killing two birds with one stone!

Hemp has great potential to remediate toxic soil all over the globe. It can truly change the face of the globe if only more people were aware of it, and if the government would stop restricting this amazing plant.
