Will be launching my own brand of oil in the next month or so.  Found a source selling 100% US grown FEMALE Hemp out of CO, who's CBD products are already used by the Brazillian Med program.  Super stoked, this will be some of if not the best legal CBD available currently!  Will keep yall posted!

Dumb question....does CBD oil have cadmium in it?  I was looking into it and saw one MD recommending avoiding it due to cadmium being one of the worse heavy metals.  I've only seen that info in one place so I thought I'd ask here.

I would not worry about that beans, anymore than any other vegetable you purchase at the supermarket such as ohhh....BEANS!

ALL fertilizers, EVEN ORGANICS, have traces of heavy metals. in fact, organics such as fish emulsion are loaded with all the typical fish contaminates such as mercury.

Super Phosphate fertalizers implemented in the 30s led to the tripling of lung cancer rates from tobacco as they render the plants radioactive and produce an alpha emitter, the worst type of radioactive particle to ingest.

It is very hard to eliminate heavy metals all together from the sources used for fertilizer production, even if you buy organic, organics have heavy metals too, cause they are part of nature. 

I have never heard of a Cadmium specific Concern linked to Cannabis or Hemp in 30 years and am not aware of any reason where Cannabis plants would carry any more Cadmium than any other plant, other than the fact that Cannabis plants are very adept at cleaning up toxins from the environment.  So as long as the base plants are not grown on toxic soil, there is no problem beyond that which exists with most any artificial feeding routine for domestic crop production.  I don't know of anything specific to hemp or mj production that would spike Cadmium levels across the board, leading to such a declaration.


no such thing as a dumb question beans! lol

some info on Cadmium, as you can see, if you are going to get overly concerned about it, you may have to remove yourself from planet earth! [smile]  is there some in some Cannabis? im sure.  is it any worse than any other hundreds of exposure sources? and Cannabis is at least PROTECTIVE against many of the problems that exposure to these types of things creates to begin with.  As with anything else, you just do your best to try to source the best products you can, if concerned about such issues, whether it be a head of lettuce or a bag of weed.

Sources Of Cadmium

Food Sources

The most common sources of cadmium toxicity are foods such as rice and wheat which are grown in soil contaminated by sewage sludge, super phosphate fertilizers and irrigation water.

 

Large ocean fish such as tuna, codfish and haddock concentrate within their tissues relatively large amounts of cadmium. Oysters, although containing large amounts of cadmium also contain large amounts of zinc which serves to protect against cadmium toxicity.

 

Besides contaminated produce and organ meats such as liver and kidneys, a significant source of cadmium toxicity is a diet high in refined foods. Zinc, which normally protects against the toxic effects of cadmium, is largely removed during the milling process, leaving cadmium behind.


Candies, Processed And Refined Foods

Many processed foods have had the protective elements zinc and calcium removed in the refining process. Cadmium, however, remains and is readily absorbed since the zinc and calcium are not available to compete for absorption.

 

Cadmium may also be used as plating material in food-processing plants, thereby finding its way into processed food products. Processed meats, refined grains, instant coffee and cola drinks are among the most common sources of cadmium toxicity.

 

Widespread use of white flour and white rice, along with causing various vitamin and mineral deficiencies, contribute to cadmium toxicity by their high cadmium/zinc ratio. An excessive carbohydrate intake also serves to reduce tissue zinc levels, further aggravating a cadmium toxicity problem.


Canned Foods

Solder used to seal cans is a common source of cadmium.


Drinking Water

Cadmium used in industry finds its way into many water supplies. Soft water is more dangerous since the calcium in hard water has a protective effect. Old galvanized pipes and new plastic (PVC) pipes are sources of cadmium in our drinking water.

hey demon how goes it? send me a PM when you're getting close to production. I been doing some of my own independent research on higher cbd strains because of legal issues and junk it's taking some time. However things to note so far
-LSD strain has 18% cbds IF you get a real Lemon Sour Diesel that's not related to the NYsour. I used that and it quieted my episode within about 35 minutes? I know because law and order was on lol.

anyway, i basically got into a coop situation so I'm dealing with standardized strains and effects now, which lets me experiment on higher cbd strains I wasn't able to work with earlier.

Heya Jay, sup man?

I am currently waiting on one of the hemp bills to pass, to clear up interstate shipment of domestic hemp products, which is still all screwed up.  The only state that can ship over state lines right now is KY, as they applied for seeds via DEA permit, then the seeds got seized at the border anyway, and they in turn sued DEA and won the seeds back.  So even though CO and other states are growing hemp, since they did not get permitted seedstock via DEA, the crops are not able to be put into interstate commerce yet.  My CO source is really good stuff, all hybrids from ACDC, Harli, etc mixed with Hemp and grown out female. Hopign one or both hemp bills pass by early summer so I can get cracking.  I could use imported base right now but want to be one of the first doing female domestic real deal from buds type extracts, so a im just chilling till the bills pass, everything else is pretty much ready to go.

Waiting to see what AK does as far as setting up the laws for commercial, etc and waiting to hear about a lab setting up shop, that will be AWESOME.

had the best luck dabbing this last year, have been able to pretty much shut down my nausea altogether with that, pretty amazing.  I just wish it killed the migraine type pain.  All these years, I would hit the bowel while sick and think, man, if that was just a liiiiiitle bit stronger.  Dabs totally do it, one hit, no "smoke", that's where it is at for sure. gives you that really good deep cough that helps loosen up the diaphragm and abdomen and hits the vagus. so that's been pretty huge, more effective than anything short of a morphine shot for me.  Still searching for strains, legalization should make that a lot easier now.  Aurora Indica: Northern lights/ Afghani was a standout last year medicinally. Looking to some diesles this year, renouned pain relievers.

good to hear from ya Jay, hope you are well

sadly everyone is making too much money shipping off their wax and oil out of state and selling it in like texas and stuff for 75$ a g, so then what's leftover is either expensive from retail or isn't clean enough to justify continuing with it just atm for me. I went back to flowers and a beaker. You should really look into that LSD though it's very, very nice.
