Our cannabis specialists evaluate and qualify cannabis and hemp material using the ICHS process, standards and 100-point scale to create a Certificate of Grade (COG) which provides clear, concise data on market value and material attributes and progress tracking from harvest to harvest. Utilizing our proprietary purpose-built grading application, our COG, and the services of on-the-ground expert graders, we put the power of data in the hands of buyers and suppliers which instills trust and transparency all along the supply chain.

DOES CANNABIS HAVE THE POWER
TO HEAL HUMANITY AND THE PLANET?

It sounds far-fetched--the whimsical concept of a dreamer--but the idea is far more grounded in reality than it may at first sound.

Why we Believe in Cannabis

PLASTICS: Hemp plastics take about 6 months to decompose and are biofriendly. Traditional plastics require up to 400 years to decompose and introduce harmful chemicals to the environment.1

FABRIC, TEXTILES, ROPE: One acre of hemp produces the same material as 2-3 acres of cotton.1

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: Studies have shown hard evidence that cannabis can help mitigate some of the symptoms of MS.2

BUILDING MATERIALS: Hempcrete is 7x lighter than concrete and just as strong, and 10x stronger than steel while being 6x more efficient at mending and bending.1

SLEEP DISTURBANCES: Early studies have shown moderate evidence that cannabis can help with sleep issues related to a variety of ailments.2

PAPER & CARDBOARD: Trees require 10-30 years before they can be used for paper. Hemp takes 60-90 days. Paper from trees can be recycled 3x. Hemp? 10x.1

ANXIETY DISORDER: Early, limited research has shown promise in the use of medical cannabis for anxiety disorders and conditions such as PTSD.2

ENERGY: Hemp fuel is biodegradable, non-toxic, and produces less greenhouse gases than fossil fuels.1

CANCER: Evidence shows conclusively that cannabis can help manage nausea and vomiting resulting from chemotherapy treatment.2

CHRONIC PAIN: The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine reports conclusive evidence that cannabis can help manage chronic pain in adults.2
