As the Cannabis industry goes mainstream the demand for comprehensive testing protocols, organic cultivation methods, fair-trade practices and organic certification also grows.
The Cannabis Certification Council is a new organization created to independently certify cannabis products as Organically Grown and Fairly Produced. Producers that are certified will receive seals for their marketing products and the CCC will serve the cannabis industry as an independent non-profit body upholding clear, achievable, yet robust standards.
Certification will be conducted by third party conflict-free experts to ensure integrity. Dr. Bronner’s, the internationally recognized leader in the organic and fair trade movements, has provided both seed funding and a matching grant to the organization.
“The Cannabis Certification Council (CCC), with its unique mission, is a perfect vessel for us to support our values in the cannabis space,” said David Bronner, CEO of Dr. Bronner’s, the top-selling soap brand in the US natural market place. “We are committed to making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest value, and we are excited for the CCC to begin driving that ethos in the cannabis industry.
