When tested with an XRF instrument, the natural organic hemp wick (coated in organic beeswax) pictured here had the following readings:
- Non-Detect for:
- Lead (<3 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Cadmium (<12 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Mercury (<5 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Arsenic (<2 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Barium (<144 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Chromium (<50 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Antimony (<33 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Selenium (<3 ppm Limit of Detection)
- Iron (Fe): 64 +/- 16 ppm – This is the only metal that this wick tested positive for!
Test results are science-based, replicable and accurate. Testing has been done for a minimum of 60 seconds per test with tests repeated multiple times to confirm the accuracy of the results. A freshly calibrated XRF instrument that is specifically designed for testing consumer goods is used for all test results reported on this website.

What is your opinion on commercially grown hemp seeds? My kids have dairy allergies and we try to stay away from all other milks because of phytic acid, so we use hemp milk. From what I’ve seen hemp seeds are usually low unless grown in contaminated soil, which is not usually the case for seeds grown for food use.
