Clean Green Certified Is Like USDA Organic For Marijuana

Gone are the days when you had no idea where your pot–we mean, your friend’s pot–came from or how it was grown. Now the organically conscious smoker can get the cleanest, greenest weed. The USDA Organic seal of approval has long reassured health and environmentally conscious consumers that their produce is free of genetically modified ingredients, antibiotics, and synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, among other things. But while fruit and vegetable consumers can use the organic label to differentiate between products, consumers of another popular plant–marijuana–don’t have that luxury. That’s why Chris Van Hook, a lawyer and USDA accredited organic certifier, started the Clean Green Certified program.

The initiative, which began in 2004, uses all the same procedures and protocols as the national organic program. “If the USDA were to say tomorrow that you can get cannabis certified as organic, everyone who is Clean Green Certified could roll right in,” says Van Hook.

Growers have to be in compliance with local and state laws, and they have to jump through a number of hoops: a 300 pesticide soil sample test (sent to a federally licensed agricultural lab), a thorough review of crop inputs (i.e. natural pesticides) and a standard agricultural inspection to make sure that plants are disease and mold-free.

As of this year, growers also need to have a carbon footprint reduction plan in place–because as we have noted previously, the cannabis industry uses a huge amount of energy. For an indoor grower, a reduction plan may mean switching to CFL bulbs, solar panels, and recycling potted soils. Outdoor growers can cut down on their footprint by ensuring that their plants are of a high enough quality to make it to market. Otherwise, they may lose a significant amount of their crops to spoilage and mildew–and that means more energy goes into growing a fewer amount of usable plants.

According to Van Hook, this is the only certification program of its kind. The whole thing costs ,000 annually for a grower, but Van Hook maintains that it’s worth it, at least partially because it differentiates growers from their competition. “If you’re handling uncertified cannabis, you have no idea when you buy it if it’s illegally grown on national forests or if it’s cartel cannabis,” he says. “In this oversupplied market, a lot of growers are looking for a way to bolster their own compliance and differentiate their product in the marketplace.”

So far, Clean Green certifies about 60 growers each year, and the number is growing fast. Clean Green growers are also quickly becoming noticed; for the second year in a row, a Clean Green Certified strain took the top prize in the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup–a big deal in the industry.

The certification initiative is only operational in California at the moment, but Van Hook has plans to expand. With new states quickly approving medical marijuana laws (New Jersey just gave the go-ahead this week), it’s likely that there will be plenty of growers–and customers–demanding his services in the near future.

Strain Hunters – Part 3 – Green House Seed Co

Our planet is home to millions of species of animal and plants with their own habitat, and each plays a unique role in the perfect design of nature. Unfortunately many species of plants and animals are victim of uncontrolled human development. Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilization all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threath of extinction. Besides the threath posed by human development, one of the goals of the United Nations, published years ago in official reports, was to wipe out the cannabis plant from the face of the earth by the year 2010. In reality this is far from being achieved, because man keeps using the cannabis plant for religious, medicinal and recreational purposes no matter what the law says. Most cultures cannot comprehend how a plant can be made illegal. In most people’s perception, plants and animals stand above a status of legality or illegality, they just exist in a higher design of nature that goes beyond human laws and regulations. Nevertheless most governments of cannabis-producing countries are implementing drastic measures to destroy crops. Dangerous chemicals are sprayed over fields and over the farmers themselves in most of the third world countries, and the poorest people of the planet are the ones paying the highest price for cultivating a plant that does not kill. But in the economy of scale, where demand dictates supply, the poorest people of the planet
