Organic Cannabis Certification in the Face of Government Prohibition?

While the feds still classify cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug, the legalization of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use is growing state-by-state. With national legal sales of cannabis reaching $5.8 billion in 2015, it begs the obvious question—is there a pathway for organic cannabis certification? How can organic farmers capitalize on this burgeoning market without jeopardizing organic certification of their other crops and livestock? Come join us for a thought-provoking session. Learn what actions farmers and certifiers are taking to ensure that the cannabis they supply will protect human health and the environment while meeting or exceeding U.S. organic agriculture regulations.
