WHAT IS MOFGA CERTIFIED CLEAN?
The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) has been certifying organic farmers since 1972 and is one of the country’s oldest certification programs. The MOFGA Clean Cannabis program provides certification to growers that are cultivating products using certified organic growing practices.
What it Takes to Be Certified:
Purity of ingredients. All products must meet strict requirements proving that at least 95% of ingredients are organic.
No prohibited ingredients. Agencies prohibit certain ingredients and products that may be harmful to human health, the environment, or both. None of these ingredients can be used in a certified product.
Produced without pesticides and synthetic agents. Naturally, organic products cannot use synthetic pesticides, irradiation, or other unnatural forms of pest control, sterilization, or preservation.

WHY IS ORGANIC BETTER?
HEALTH & SAFETY BENEFITS
The Cannabis plant is capable of a process called phytoremediation, which means the plant can pull heavy metals and other toxins from water and soil. Providing clean and healthy soil to grow your cannabis in reduces the risk for consuming toxic materials. Organic growing goes to great lengths to develop healthy, contaminant free soil, reducing the risk that you’re consuming toxic materials. Furthermore, organic pest control involves far fewer, if any, harsh and dangerous chemicals.
A holistic, organic approach to growing cannabis benefits the production of flavonoids and terpenes, which produces more flavorful and attractive bud.
Organic growing is better for the environment in almost all cases. Synthetic fertilizers and conventional growing techniques damage soil integrity, destroy microbial, insect, and animal habitats, and deplete soils over the long-term. Conventional growing is an unsustainable practice that causes lasting harm to surrounding land and water. Organic growing reduces this damage by maintaining healthy soil through a variety of low-impact techniques, from integrated pest management to natural soil amendments.
