CBD Oil and Potential Pesticides Composition

CBD Oil and Potential Pesticides Composition

The cannabis business is expanding at a dizzying rate, and one of the most pressing issues is the danger of being exposed to pesticides through the consumption of CBD oil. Headaches, physical issues, and discomfort throughout the body are just some of the symptoms that can result from even minimal toxin exposure. Also, many pesticide compounds are carcinogenic. The only way to protect yourself from the risk of being exposed to pesticides is to make sure that the cannabidiol oil you buy are safe and do not include any traces of these chemicals.

Phytoremediation of the Soil Using Hemp

Hemp is distinguished in that it is capable of improving the quality of soil (also called a soil sucker). As the plant grows, it extracts the nutrients from the earth, which it then uses. However, the vascular system of the plant not only absorbs the nutrients that it pulls up, but it also absorbs the pollutants that are there. Learn more about phytoremediation of the soil using hemp. The vacuum-like suction that it exerts on the soil helps to clean it. Because it is so effective at removing toxins from the soil, cannabis is often grown in regions that have a history of being exposed to heavy metals. This is because cannabis may break down the compounds that cause heavy metal poisoning. After the meltdown of the nuclear reactor, the area around Chernobyl was contaminated with radioactive elements, which leached into the soil. In order to cleanse the area, hemp crops were grown there.

Trace Amounts of Heavy Metals in the Soil

Heavy metals can be found in naturally occurring concentrations in the soil in many parts of the world. For decades, farmers have been fighting against this adverse circumstance. On the other hand, the majority of farmers in modern-day Australia do assess their soil using contemporary methods to rule out the possibility of heavy metal contamination.

Pesticides and Cannabidiol (CBD) oil

The danger posed by pesticides is comparable to that posed by heavy metals. In order to tackle insect issues, pesticides are either sprayed directly onto the plant or applied to the soil. In the same manner that it does with heavy metals, the cannabis plant is able to draw pesticides into its fibres. In addition, because of the possibility of mould development, the buds of the hemp plant cannot be thoroughly cleansed of any traces of pesticides that may have been present.

CBD oil Containing a High Proportion of Different Pesticides

In 2016, a Laboratory published a report in which they reported that 84.3% of all cannabis samples tested positive for the presence of pesticide residue. Even if this happened a few years ago and laboratory testing is now more common, the high proportion is still cause for concern and unequivocally shows that exposure to CBD oil and pesticides has been a serious issue. Consumers have a responsibility to be alert and to purchase CBD oil exclusively from trustworthy businesses like Chronic Therapy.

CBD oil Diluted to Hide the Presence of Pesticides

The fact that CBD oil might get concentrated with pesticides is yet another concerning aspect that customers must take into consideration. A report was recently published in the journal Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids. This report reveals the concerns of CBD oil and exposure to pesticides in the following statement: “If any of these contaminants [pesticides, heavy metals, solvents, etc.] were present in hemp used for CBD oil extraction, they would likely end up in the concentrated form in the resultant oil. When it comes to pesticide levels in concentrates, the typical rule of thumb is as follows: “anticipate around a tenfold increase in pesticide load relative to the flower that was used for extraction.” When the plant material is removed and condensed into an oil, this indicates that the concentration of pesticides in the plant material increases by a factor of 10.

Testing Done by Independent Laboratories for the Presence of Pesticides in CBD oil

Equipment that provides what is known as a Limit of Detection may be found in both independent laboratories and in-house analytical laboratories. The lowest detectable concentration, is the smallest quantity of a drug that may be found in a sample. This method is used to determine not just the cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD oil, present in hemp, but also the amount of pesticides present. Due to the extremely lax regulation, the LOD testing might be quite different from one laboratory to the next. Regrettably, some shady producers take advantage of the absence of regulation in the business by lowering the concentration levels in their oil in order to hide the presence of pesticides, heavy metals, and other toxins such that they are undetectable by the LOD. They accomplish this by adding more oils to the product in order to dilute it. Clearly, this hammers home the need of ensuring that the CBD oil you buy are derived from organic hemp that has been approved.

CBD Oil Diluted to Hide the Presence of Pesticides

People who buy CBD oil might become confused, and they could assume that lowering the amount of pesticides in the product by diluting is a good thing. However, if they reduce the amount of pesticides in the sample in this way, they also reduce the amount of CBD that is in the product as a percentage. If a customer wants to obtain an exact dosage of CBD oil, they will need to take a greater quantity of the product. This, in turn, will increase their exposure to the pesticide because it will result in a higher dose. The only reason CBD oil are diluted for laboratory tests is to conceal the amount of pesticides that are present in the product.

Certification of Organic Production

Farmers who meet the standards for organic production that have been established by the relevant Australian body are eligible to receive an organic certification. At Chronic Therapy, we don’t mess around when it comes to purity.

Canada Ontario To Tackle Plastic Litter and Waste & Revamp Recycling

Canada Ontario To Tackle Plastic Litter and Waste & Revamp Recycling

Ontario is protecting what matters most by tackling the serious problem of plastic pollution and litter that is increasingly plaguing our parks, highways, lakes and rivers.

Ontario has engaged David Lindsay as a Special Advisor on Recycling and Plastic Waste to urgently address these issues. Mr. Lindsay will provide Rod Phillips, Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, a report this summer on how to tackle plastic waste and litter, improve recycling, increase products that can go into the blue box, and ensure producers are responsible for managing plastic and other packaging at end-of-life.

“Ontario families take pride in doing their part for the environment. In fact, our own city of Kitchener was the birthplace of the world’s first Blue Box program,” said Minister Phillips. “Knowing this, I was disappointed to learn that, while Ontario families work to sort and recycle properly, government and industry are failing them. Ontario’s recycling rates have been stalled for 15 years and up to 30 per cent of what is put into blue boxes is sent to landfill. Not to mention, recent stories highlight how some of Ontario’s plastic waste is being unsustainably shipped across the ocean to the Philippines and Malaysia.”

Canada Ontario To Tackle Plastic Litter and Waste & Revamp Recycling

Mr. Lindsay currently serves as President and CEO of the Council of Ontario Universities. Prior to this, he was President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada and of Colleges Ontario, an advocacy organization for the province’s 24 colleges of applied arts and technology. Mr. Lindsay also served Ontarians as a former Deputy Minister for several Ontario ministries over the course of six years, including Natural Resources and Northern Development, Mines and Forestry.

“I’m looking forward to helping Ontario’s municipalities and producers work together to address plastic litter and improve recycling in our province,” said David Lindsay. “Having stakeholders come together to identify concerns and find solutions will be integral to reinvigorating the province’s Blue Box Program and solving the problem of plastic litter and waste.”

In the Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan, Ontario committed to transitioning the costs of the Blue Box Program away from municipal taxpayers to make the producers of products and packaging fully responsible. Shifting to producer responsibility will obligate producers across the province to pay for and manage their materials. It will also enable the common list of what can be recycled across the province. This is a cost-effective and accountable way to promote innovation and ensure Ontarians’ recycling efforts are more effective, resulting in increased recycling and diversion rates.

Reducing plastic waste and litter and making producers responsible for the end-of-life management of their products is a key part of our Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan to balance a healthy economy and a healthy environment and keep our province clean and beautiful for current and future generations.

World to Recognize Jerusalem as Capital

World to Recognize Jerusalem as Capital

The time has come for the international community to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Jewish state’s UN envoy said in a letter to the president of the Security Council.

“Since King David made Jerusalem the capital of the Kingdom of Israel 3,000 years ago, the Jews have always lived in, built and defended the Holy City,” Ambassador Danny Danon wrote. “Even after the Jews lost their sovereignty in the Land of Israel to the Roman sword, they still maintained a presence in Jerusalem, generation after generation.”

“When the Arabs rejected UN resolution 181 in 1947, the local Arab population attacked the Jewish Quarter of the Old City and expelled its Jewish population,” he continued. “For nineteen years, Jerusalem’s Old City was separated from its western neighborhoods by mines and barbed wire. It was not until 1967, when Israel overcame yet another Arab attempt to destroy the Jewish state, that Israel succeeded in reuniting and liberating Jerusalem.”

World to Recognize Jerusalem as Capital

“For the last 52 years, Jerusalem has been a city that champions and protects religious freedom and the right of all worshipers to pray in peace,” Danon noted. “This reality, unique in our region, exists only in the Jewish and democratic Israel.”

Danon’s missive came in response to a complaint against Israel filed with the Security Council by Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour, who called for the establishment of a Palestinian state, with a capital in East Jerusalem, “before we have reached a point of no return.”

Amazing Turkey

Amazing Turkey

Turkey is one of the historically fascinating countries in the world and a trip to spend just 10 days in Istanbul and Bursa might sound crazy, but it is definitely worth it. Turkey is a nation straddling eastern Europe and western Asia with cultural connections to ancient Greek, Persian, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Ankara is Turkey’s modern capital. Rich in culture, history and architecture, Turkey is a dream destination for writers, vloger, Travel journalist, Flim makers and visitor as well.

This tour is one of my personal favorites and truly the travel experience of a lifetime. Arriving at 5 am and having 10 days I opted for the Metro airport service .I stayed in Hotel Akcinar 12, Serdar Sokak, Nöbethane Cd., 34120 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey , right near Nobatang Road fathiy , waking up early each morning in an attempt to capture as much of the experience as creatively as possible.

Turkish breakfast is a BIG deal and endless adorable outdoor cafes line the streets so just pick one and sit down.Within 15 minutes our table was absolutely covered with cheeses, breads, spreads, honey, jams, crepes, and a whole host of unknown delicious looking items. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

The Hagia Sophia. Full-day 40TL per person/Ticket

After breakfast we headed to the iconic Hagia Sophia and the massive 17th-century Blue Mosque (Masjid).The Hagia Sophia, one of the historical architectural wonders that still remains standing today, has an important place in the art world with its architecture, grandness, size and functionality.

The Hagia Sophia, the biggest church constructed by the East Roman Empire in Istanbul, has been constructed three times in the same location. When it was first built, it was named Megale Ekklesia (Big Church); however, after the fifth century, it was referred to as the Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom). The church was the place in which rulers were crowned, and it was also the biggest operational cathedral in the city throughout the Byzantine period.

The church was demolished on January 13, 532, after the public riot (Nika revolts) that took place during the fifth year of Emperor Justinianos’ reign (527-565),

Amazing Turkey

The current structure was constructed by Isidoros (Milet) and Anthemios (Tralles), who were renowned architects of their time, by Emperor Justinianos’s (527-565) orders. Information from historian Prokopios states that the construction that began on February 23, 532, was completed in a short period of five years and the church was opened to worship with a ceremony on December 27, 537.

The white marbles used in the structure came from the Marmara Island, the green porphyry from Eğriboz Island, the pink marbles from Afyon and the yellow from North Africa. The decorative interior wall coatings were established by dividing single marble blocks into two and combining them in order to create symmetrical shapes.

Fatih Sultan Mehmed’s (1451-1481) conquer in 1453, Hagia Sophia was renovated into a mosque. The structure was fortified and was well protected after this period, and remained as a mosque. Additional supporting pillars were installed during the East Roman and Ottoman periods as a result of the damage that the structure experienced due to earthquakes in the region. The minarets designed and implemented by Mimar Sinan have also served to this purpose.

The Hagia Sophia was converted into a museum by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s orders and has been functioning as one since February 1, 1935, welcoming both local and foreign visitors.

Blue Mosque (Masjid) or The Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Masjid). Free for Visitor

It is a historic mosque located in Istanbul, Turkey. A popular tourist site, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque continues to function as a mosque today; men still kneel in prayer on the mosque’s lush red carpet after the call to prayer. The Blue Mosque, as it is popularly known, was constructed between 1609 and 1616 during the rule of Ahmed .Hand-painted blue tiles adorn the mosque’s interior walls, and at night the mosque is bathed in blue as lights frame the mosque’s five main domes, six minarets and eight secondary domes.
