Virginia Soil Testing Attorney
Legal Counsel for Hemp & Cannabis Production in Virginia
Soil testing is an important part of the process for large-scale production of any outdoor grows. If you are in the business or are a startup getting ready to provide hemp or cannabis to consumers, soil testing services are needed early – if not first.
The cannabis plant is a bio-remediator and will actually pull the mycotoxins or heavy metals that may be in the soil and, in the process, clean your land. However, this process for growing cannabis will ruin your crop for anything involving human or animal consumption. Therefor, soil testing is critical to ensure the success of your operation.
At Virginia Hemp Lawyers™, we provide help with all aspects of the hemp/cannabis industries from preparation to production. A Roanoke soil testing lawyer at our firm can answer your questions, provide guidance, and help you avoid future problems with your cannabis producing agribusiness.

The Importance of Soil Testing for Growing Cannabis
Soil analysis is frequently overlooked in hemp and cannabis grow businesses. However, soil testing is a vital part of any plant operation, especially for growing marijuana. Contaminated soil can render a cannabis product unsuitable for sale, and healthy soil can maximize your yields.
Soil sampling and analysis can involve testing for such things as:
- Heavy metals
- pH soil levels
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Nutrient deficiencies
Heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, and more can be absorbed into plants through the soil. In excess, these metals can lead to health problems such as cancer and heart disease. Mycotoxins are a type of mold (fungi) that can grow on food or other crops that are toxic and can lead to respiratory and other health problems in humans.
How much of any element is absorbed will vary from location to location and from year to year. Pesticide and fertilizer use contributes to the amount of heavy metals found in any crop. These metals can also be absorbed into plant materials through processing.
Knowing what nutrient deficiencies your soil has is key to knowing how to spend your money efficiently when adjusting your soil. Additionally, cannabis seeds and plants absorb these nutrients best in slightly acidic soil, with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Plants grown in a nutrient rich soil with a proper pH can grow faster and produce bigger yields.
