USDA Certified Organic. What does it mean?

Organic and USDA Certified Organic. What’s the difference?

The word “organic” has been used more and more over the past few decades. It’s gotten to the point where many of us aren’t totally sure what organic means anymore. The truth is, there isn’t really a set standard on what the word “organic” means, and that has been causing a lot of confusion over the years.

In an effort to let customers and consumers know what they are buying truly is organic and has gone through a rigorous certification process, the United States government has created a set of strict guidelines. These guidelines dictate how organic food can be grown and what must, can, and can’t be involved in the production process.

Why USDA Certified Organic Matters

With how many “natural” and “organic” foods, supplements, and other products floating around in the market now, we believe it’s important to know for certain that an item has been certified. When you’ve chosen a product that is USDA certified organic, you can be sure that all processes involved in its production are as natural as possible.

Your Wellness Is At Stake

While the majority of items that claim to be organic are most likely organic to some degree, without certification there’s no telling for sure. According to a recent study, several CBD products being sold on Amazon did not even contain CBD in them. Without knowing what to look for, it can be tricky to spot legitimate CBD companies

Furthermore, there is evidence that some products that are not USDA certified organic can even contain levels of THC typically found only at marijuana dispensaries. What’s scarier is that there have been a few studies showing that some untested CBD can contain potentially dangerous synthetic cannabinoids.
