Hemp can only be called organic if it’s verified to have been grown on soil that had no prohibited substances applied for three years prior to harvest. Many CBD makers claim their hemp is “organically grown” or “produced using organic methods”, but just six months earlier the field used could have produced another crop using harsh pesticides or synthetic chemicals. 

The industrial hemp plant from which CBD is derived is a bioaccumulator, which means it absorbs toxins from the soil faster than it can release them, including fertilizers, pesticides, heavy metals, glyphosate, GMOs, toxic solvents, and more. When hemp is used to make full spectrum CBD products, any toxins present get extracted along with the CBD and other phytochemicals. It is therefore critical that the quality of the soil is closely monitored and regulated to ensure a pure product. 

The “USDA Organic” certification means that a USDA-approved agent has inspected the growing and processing conditions to ensure they meet official standards. You can read more about Upstate Elevator’s clean sourcing, growing, and manufacturing processes here.
