MALIBU, Calif. – Green Gorilla, the industry leader of certified organic hemp cannabidiol (CBD) products, has established itself as the leader in the farm-to-shelf hemp and CBD industry with its own 1,474-acre farm in Arizona and a suite of over 25 true farm-to-shelf USDA certified organic products the most of any CBD brand on the market. Gorilla FarmCo owns and operates 1,474 acres of farmland and has successfully achieved USDA organic certification for its farm through a third-party organic certifying body, Oregon Tilth. Gorilla FarmCo can add the highly sought-after organic certification to its established credentials such as a conditional use permit, nursery license and hemp growing license in the state of Arizona.
The rigorous process to achieve organic certification included an on-site inspection and review of farm activities and inputs to ensure compliance. Gorilla FarmCo’s farm activities are overseen by Av Singh, PhD who is a leading authority on organic agriculture and has consulted various farms around the world for sustainable and organic practices. With help of Dr. Singh, Gorilla FarmCo has sustainably irrigated its land and established regenerative soil practices through the use of organic cover crops while using and conserving pure water sourced directly from aquifers on its land. Since developing the farm and focusing on preserving biodiversity and organic growing methods, the farm has seen an abundance of native wildlife, crucial to the region.
The successful grow at Gorilla FarmCo, consisting of many certified organic CBD and CBG hemp varieties, proved the company’s farming practices are in compliance with state and county regulations on hemp farming. Gorilla FarmCo also features hoop houses that have been constructed for the purposes of cultivating genetics, providing year-round growing opportunities and drying hemp biomass with use of heat and indoor lights powered by solar energy.
“Developing our own farm and planning to support the increased sales and manufacturing of our CBD products was a growing process both literally and figuratively,” said Sir Steven Saxton, CEO and founder of Green Gorilla. “We have been able to prove ourselves through successful test crops and by ensuring every step we take is done with USDA organic standards in mind. Farming organically and sustainably not only makes our farm grown organic hemp a premium, but it also helps our company be environmentally friendly.”
