Hyper-accumulation is the massive accumulation of certain minerals that occurs in certain plants when compared to other plants. Marijuana hyper-accumulates certain heavy metals including lead, cadmium, magnesium, copper, chromium, and cobalt. Considering that marijuana is most often grown for medicinal/food purposes, what do you all think about creating a soil mixture list that contains the least amount of these heavy metals that are potentially a health hazard? Here is a study for reference: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4235884/ Also, here is a link to an interesting video about garlic's capability to cure mild to moderate lead poisoning and chelate other heavy metals out of our systems (or more specifically, rats systems in the studies mentioned): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyqftDk-TlE Supposedly eating just about anything reduces lead absorption by 90%, so perhaps none of these precautions are necessary. There are many ways to lower lead levels in the blood in general. What do you all think? Should growers be taking this into mind and avoiding amendments/products with excessively high levels of heavy metals in order to avoid growing plants with hyper-accumulations of metals like lead and cadmium?
I created a social site that focuses on marijuana... Pot Swap Club, were people are able to trade marijuana and more. I created it last year, however I had some health problems and other issues and had to put the site on hold, but now i'm back in action. I just added forums and could use knowledgeable people , if interested, please watch the short video and visit the site... https://potswap.club/ To our success in life "What we tell ourselves, our brain believes"
