Why Certified Organic CBD?
There is a global movement amongst consumers to search for products that are organic, sustainable and benefit the environment. Many non-organic products contain or are made with toxins, pesticides, herbicides and chemicals are not meant to go into the earth or your body.
To put it simply, organic CBD products are better for your health and the planet.
Not all CBD is the same
Many brands market their products as being organic, but it is important to understand what sets Green Gorilla Organics apart from the rest.
Just because you see “organic” or “natural” on a product doesn’t mean that they have been regulated or certified organic by an independent organization. Not all CBD products, ingredients and hemp are processed and sourced the same. You may not even know it, but many toxic substances could be in the CBD oil you are using. Due to lack of regulation, CBD manufacturers are using deceptive marketing and unethical practices to sell their products.
What does it mean to be organic?
From the United States Department of Agriculture National Organic Program, “Organic is a labeling term for food or other agricultural products that have been produced using cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that support the cycling of on-farm resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity in accordance with the USDA organic regulations. This means that organic operations must maintain or enhance soil and water quality, while also conserving wetlands, woodlands, and wildlife. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used”.
Being organic is thus a signal of trust for you and your family to know everything that went into making that product was done to preserve nature, protect you from harm and benefit farmland where the ingredients are grown.
