GAP: Good Agricultural Practices Consulting
As the cannabis industry becomes more formalized, buyers of all kinds will want to be sure that the medicine or recreational cannabis they are consuming is grown under conditions that are sustainable and to the highest agricultural standards. Our assessment process will help growers to look at their growing practices in the light of a very detailed standard developed by SCCC staff.
This pre-assessment standard combines elements of a number of international agricultural and sustainability certification standards and defines the highest standard for commercial cannabis growers. The assessment is comprehensive and looks at your overall site management system, record keeping, propagation material, water use, pesticide and fertilizer use, energy use, equipment, harvest and processing practices, worker health and safety, training, traceability and sustainability practices. After the completion of this assessment your operation will have the information needed to work towards a third party audit such as The Cannabis Conservancy Sustainability Certification. You could also choose to be assessed with the rigorous SCCC in-house GAP/Sustainability standard. We work with you to refine your current practices or help you develop new ways to meet the demands of this constantly changing marketplace.
