Heavy Metals

Toxic metals like Lead and Mercury have been known for centuries to be incredibly harmful to people and the environment. Historically, Cannabis and Hemp has been used for soil remediation due to their ability to leach metals from the soil. Their affinity to uptake metals requires testing to ensure these elements are not detrimental to patient health.

Green Peaks Analytical analyzes cannabis for heavy metals by way of Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). Water and soil testing is also available from our parent company using the same technology. 

RI DOH regulated metals include:

  • Arsenic
  • Cadmium
  • Lead
  • Mercury
