USDA Issues First Certification for Organic Hemp

May 13, 2019

While many turn to CBD to avoid the many side effects of traditional medicine, you have to wonder what is in the CBD your buying. There have been many well-covered studies that show that CBD product labeling falls well short of the mark. Who can you trust? Understanding the labeling and finding products with clear third-party testing will help.
Palmetto Harmony is the first CBD company to have a product that is certified organic.

“We are thrilled to announce that we are the first vertically integrated CBD organization to have flower and viable seed Certified Organic by the United States Department of Agriculture! The Palmetto Harmony grow, manufacturing and product line is now all Certified Organic through the USDA.”

They maintain their soil fertility and nutrients through tillage and crop rotations. They also use cover crops. Worm castings are their friend as they use them to introduce beneficial microbes and bacteria into the soil, and aid in the absorption of nutrients into the plants. Their other friends are ladybugs, pirate bugs and praying mantes for pest management.

The USDA continues to work towards the plan for hemp production in the United States. In the meantime, states like Michigan are able to grow under the 2014 research rules. Investment dollars are coming into Michigan and we continue to learn of new ambitious plans for the hemp crop in Michigan. Growing organically is a natural for this crop that doesn’t offer any approved pesticides or herbicides.
