Clean Green Certified is Cannabis’s Sustainable Agriculture Standard
Sustainable agriculture is the production of food, fiber or other plant or animal products that uses farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.
Responsible Farmers, Conscientious Consumers
Clean Green Certified is a program modeled on existing national and international organic standards, ensuring environmentally clean and sustainable methods. Clean Green inspects all inputs, from seed or clone selection, soil, nutrients, pesticides, mold treatments, dust control, and source of electricity, to methods of harvesting and processing. The Clean Green Certified program is comprised of three parts: a legal compliance review, a review of the manner in which the cannabis is grown, and a standard agricultural crop inspection. Taken together, the program helps to ensure a grower’s legal compliance as well as distinguishing the quality of the cannabis product from others available to qualified consumers. This program reduces the environmental impact of cannabis crops, ensures legality, and regulates what chemical go into a consumable product. A certified operation is licensed to use the Clean Green Certified label on their products after an annual review requiring yearly on-site inspections and third party laboratory testing.
