As we enter another year of adapting to the ever-expanding legal cannabis and hemp markets, the stance of being at the forefront when it comes to leading the charge for the culture in the cannabis industry and its innovation stays the same at JTT. From the rolling papers we use to the way our cannabis is grown, we believe that consuming consciously can positively affect our environment and the people around us.
Therefore, it’s important to have a conscious mindset of the shift towards sustainable and organic thinking in this sphere. Cannabis is slowly becoming the next frontier in the ‘organic’ movement and we love to see more recyclable products and natural ways of growing come to light each and every day.
What are we ‘Organically’ Seeing in The Cannabis World?
First, whether it’s organic connections, organic marijuana, or organic cultivation processes— organic matters in cannabis. Organic products and processes are defined as being strictly controlled, free of antibiotics, and hormones and are also made without most synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Many people have generalized this term as more of a synonym to ‘natural’ and although at times this may sway the true meaning of the word, the message remains similar and positive.
More than ever before we want to know where our cannabis comes from and how our products are made. With big canna-companies creating more presence in the industry and federal regulations lagging behind, the cultivation processes needed are only becoming harder to manage while testing and regulations can only vary state-by-state for bigger-scale operations.
Organic Labeling and Certification Groups
What’s more, with many pesticides, pathogens, and heavy metals starting to become a growing concern among health-conscious canna-consumers, some are questioning whether USDA organic labeling will be a possibility within the cannabis industry in the near future. This is leading to a rising number of people in the industry who are trying to reduce their environmental footprint.
Some industry groups heavily recognize the need for consumer-friendly recognition and are taking matters into their own hands. The Cannabis Certification Council (CCC) and Clean Green Certified (CGC) are third-party nonprofit organizations that have created their own guided baselines within the organic standards for cannabis production, equipment, and services that meet USDA standards through licensing.
The Importance of Consciously Going ‘Organic’
Synthetic fertilizers and conventional growing techniques are looked upon more and more as unsustainable practices that cause lasting harm to the surrounding land and water. On the other hand, organic growing practices range across a huge list of lower-impact techniques that are able to mitigate this damage by maintaining healthier soils.
Finally, ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ don’t only pertain to growing cannabis. The use of glass jars, reusable accessories, and organic eco-friendly papers are all huge factors if you’re all for clean cannabis consumption. All of these products offer a cleaner smoking experience, are generally less harmful, and leave less of a carbon footprint from their use.
