For hemp farmers, organic certification by the USDA was not even possible until the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized the regulated production of the hemp plant. Those producers taking up organic farming and handling practices now are at the forefront of the environmental movement within the context of the hemp industry.
The hemp industry is expected to grow at a brisk pace in the coming years, increasing the impact of hemp farming on the environment. Organic farming is one way to lessen the negative impacts of this expansion, by reducing the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers as well as limiting processing techniques that are detrimental to the environment.
In addition to promoting more sustainable farming practices in the world around us, we could all ideally reduce our body’s exposure to synthetic chemicals. Many people are unaware that they are allergic to common synthetic additives found in non-organic products and stand to benefit by seeking out organic personal care products exclusively.
While in the past, it was enough for CBD companies to provide the results of third-party testing and batch numbers on product labels, that soon became a common industry standard. Since organic certification has become possible, this represents a new avenue for CBD companies such as CBDefined to set themselves apart.
USDA Organic certification demands transparency on the part of producers, building trust with customers due to the stringent requirements placed on them. When you buy organic, you can be certain that the company distributing your CBD product has followed organic farming and handling practices to the letter.
Our organic products are priced comparably to non-organic products on the market, per milligram, according to our research. We have purposely priced them as such, hoping to be set apart purely on the basis of being organic and not as a luxury product available only to the few. Please give us a try and let us know if you have any questions or comments.
