Cannabis is a well known hyper-accumulator, or a plant which uptakes significantly more of certain mineral(s) compared to other plants which uptake moderate amounts. In particular, cannabis hyper-accumulates a lot of cadmium and lead. Here are two links to bring my line of thought together for this post:
A study on hyper-accumulation in cannabis: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4235884/ A video from a popular nutritionist doctor on garlic's significant benefits for lead poisoning:

Cannabis also hyper-accumulates the heavy metal zinc which is really cool, but the lead is more of what worries me. I have been considering consuming garlic pills because I usually take around 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds every day for medical reasons. I also consume a lot of garlic anyway, but I am wondering if perhaps garlic and marijuana would make a good synergy for patients because of these complimentary effects? Any comments are appreciated. I might also make a post in the cultivation forum in attempt to discover a list of amendments/soil mixes which do not contain high amounts of lead (such as bone meal does) or other minerals which cannabis can potentially hyper-accumulate and potentially change medicinal quality (if the hyper-accumulation is a problem in the first place that is, and if so garlic may solve the problem anyway).
