KELOWNA, BC – Liht Cannabis Corp. ((CSE: LIHT) (OTCQX: LIHTF) or the “Company”) is very proud to announce that it has received its second certification for both of its cultivation facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada. The certification was issued by Certified Kind, an industry equivalent program to USDA Organic Certification.
This certification permits the use of the Certified Kind logo on all of our products.
On January 16, 2019, the Company received its second organically grown certification, from Certified Kind whose rules have been modeled after (IFOAM) International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements – Norms for Organic Production and Processing, the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) standards, and the organic standards of the European Union, Canada, and Mexico.
Certified Kind performs rigorous inspections, verifying compliance to the Certified Kind rules of processes and production. They sample test for over 200+ pesticide residues.
The US federal government will not allow organic certification of cannabis or cannabis products as a result producers need their own certification standard. Growers and edible producers are not legally allowed to use the term “Organic” to label and market their products. Certified Kind was started as an alternative to USDA Organic certification. Certified Kind offers an effective and transparent way for cannabis producers to prove their commitment to earth-friendly production practices that meet, and in some cases, exceed USDA Organic standards.
Andrew Black, Founder and Director of Certified Kind, was interviewed for a High Times article called, Tainted: The Problem With Pot And Pesticides. Andrew was asked, Should you be worried about what you inhale? “One of the main takeaways is you should be smoking clean cannabis and a good way to do that is to support certified growers. It’s also a good idea to be suspicious of cannabis concentrates/extracts/oils.
When cannabis trim is extracted, the solvent (commonly liquid CO2, Butane, or Alcohol) concentrates not just THC and CBD, but will also pull out and concentrate pesticide residues. If you medicate with cannabis oil, make sure its clean. You don’t want a large dose of pesticides with your THC.” To read the full article visit:
“We are focused on creating an environment of excellence, specifically for the cultivation of a premium organic product. Our goal is to ensure that when we say that we deliver a “Top Shelf” product, that there are multiple 3rd party certifiers there to validate it for us.” Kurt Keating, Director of Operations.
