Why Remo Nutrients for your Cannabis Plants?

Short answer: there’s a big difference between “food grade” and “pharmaceutical grade” plant nutrients. Heavy metal accumulation in humans is a toxicity that leads to severe health conditions and should be a dietary concern for everyone.

Our experienced grower on staff explains that using food-grade plant food may be ok for your run-of-the-mill veggie garden, but you don’t smoke your tomatoes. In fact, this scientific study published in 1988 says that humans absorb mercury exceptionally more efficiently via the lungs and only 10% efficiently via the gut.

cannabis clone nutrients Weeds such as marijuana and tobacco are known for their inherent ability to absorb heavy metals from the soil, making them very useful for remediating contaminated sites. On the other hand, choosing to activate these weeds by burning them and then inhaling them poses a potential health threat to humans.

Luckily, those in power know these dangers, are regulating the heavy metals in legal cannabis, and smart growers have been taking the necessary precautions to grow safer weed for a while now. Like our experienced grower on staff! He has been researching and experimenting with growing cannabis for personal use for years.

Remo Nutrients is an organic-synthetic hybrid line which produces the healthiest, cleanest cannabis possible that wouldn’t be possible with a 100% organic line. They avoid animal products, whereas many 100% organic lines use them. Remo tests for heavy metals regularly per CFIA requirements, and their products have undetectable levels. (Source: Remo FAQs).

Black Market Cannabis Precautions

As the research grows in the budding cannabis industry, legal cannabis producers make strategic consumer-driven business decisions to stay alive in this highly competitive market. As consumers, we have a voice in driving the cannabis industry. If we choose health as a priority value in our cannabis products, we will be certain to get it! We all have to balance it out with price.

Did you know some cannabis is grown in “true living soil?” There is no need to “flush” your crop in the weeks leading up to harvest like store-bought nutrients. Read up on The Druid’s Guide to Living Soil.

Heavy metals are only one health concern. However, before we move on, this Penn State research group proposes strategies for growers to avoid heavy metals in their crops. This NBC report shares another heavy metal study and warns the public that black market products are more dangerous, even while legal cannabis regulations still need to be standardized.

Suffice it to say that most black-market cannabis is unconcerned about testing products for contaminants, including heavy metals. Trusted producers will offer contamination test results from 3rd-party inspection agencies.
