Growing Hemp Can Clean the Environment Through Phytoremediation!
Did You Know?
Hemp removes toxins and radioactive chemicals from the soil via a process called phytoremediation, which is one of six types of bioremediation. Bioremediation is the use of either naturally occurring or deliberately introduced microorganisms or other forms of life to consume and break down environmental pollutants, in order to clean up a polluted site. Scientists even planted it at the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster after discovering hemp engaging in this process better than any other plants or organisms in the area!
What an amazing plant!
Also, hemp can clean the atmosphere, protect the environment and even reversing the damage done to it from global warming. Global warming is the result of high levels of carbon dioxide or CO2. Hemp consumes four times as much CO2 as trees do, and it's short 12- to 14-week growing cycle makes it a highly sustainable crop that effectively fights global warming.
Overall, hemp has an astounding ability to clean the environment!
