09/26/2023 - Cadmium bioconcentration and translocation potential in day-neutral and photoperiod-sensitive hemp grown hydroponically for the medicinal market

In this 2023 article published in the journal Water, Marebesi et al. of the University of Georgia present their findings on phytoremediation of Cadmium (Cd)-contaminated soils using day-neutral and photoperiod-sensitive hemp plants. After a thorough introduction on the topic of using Cannabis plants for phytoremediation (including the flowers), the authors present their materials and methods, focusing on Apricot Auto, Alpha Explorer, Von, and T1 varieties of hemp. They then present the results of their experiments, addressing plant height, biomass yield, Cd concentrations in various plant tissues, nutrient partitioning, and THC/CBD concentrations. They conclude noting that "while Cd concentration was significantly higher in roots, all four varieties were efficient in translocating Cd from roots to shoots." They also conclude that THC/CBD loss is affected by remediation in some cases, as was height and biomass. Finally, they highlight the importance of Cd testing of flowers for medical markets where the plant is used.
