Organic certification is a process that ensures that agricultural products are grown, handled, and processed in accordance with strict standards set by the government or other certifying organizations. These standards are designed to promote environmentally-friendly farming practices, protect consumer health, and ensure that organic products are truly organic.
To become certified organic, farmers and processors must go through a rigorous process that includes regular inspections and audits to ensure compliance with the standards. This process can take several months or even years, but the end result is a product that is truly organic and of the highest quality.
In order to maintain their certification, farmers and processors must continue to adhere to the standards and undergo regular inspections and audits. This ensures that the organic products you buy are truly organic and have been produced in an environmentally-friendly way.
Organic certification is important for both farmers and consumers. It allows farmers to market their products as organic and command a higher price for them. For consumers, it ensures that the organic products they buy are truly organic and have been produced in an environmentally-friendly way.
So, it's important to look for certified organic products when you are searching for cannabis and hemp products. Many webshops claim their products are organic, but fail to provide the evidence to support such claims.
