Hemp helps Chernobyl

This spring saw hemp being sown in the contaminated soil surrounding Chernobyl, the site of the world’s worst-ever nuclear disaster. International hempseed broker, Consolidated Growers and Processors (CGP), have teamed up with the Ukraine?s Institute of Bast Crops and a company called Phytotech, to use hemp to remove radioactive elements and heavy metals from soil and water in the contaminated area.

Phytotech specializes in phytoremediation, which means using plants (phyto) to clean up polluted sites. Phytoremediation can be used to remove radioactive elements, and to clean up metals, pesticides, solvents, crude oil, and other toxins leaching from landfills.

Plants such as cannabis break down organic pollutants and stabilize metal contaminants by acting as filters or traps. “Hemp is proving to be one of the best phyto-remediative plants we have been able to find,” said Slavik Dushenkov, a research scientist with Phytotech.

Research by the Polish Institute of Natural Fibres released in 1995 showed that high levels of heavy metals in soil do not impair cannabis growth, and that yield and fibre quality do not differ from those obtained on regular soils.
