Is Relevium™ Organic Cannabis Oil Worth It?

Is Relevium™ organic cannabis oil healthier? Is it safer? Is it worth the expense? Organic means working with nature. It means lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilizers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment, which means more wildlife. When you choose organic you choose products that promote a better world. To us, that means organic Relevium™ oil is definitely worth it.

What is Organic

“Organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. For the U.S., this means crops must be grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers.

  • Grown with synthetic or chemical fertilizers.
  • Weeds controlled with chemical herbicides.
  • Pests controlled with synthetic pesticides.

Organic Relevium™ Cannabis
Fewer Pesticides and is GMO Free

Chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides used in conventional cannabis production and residues can remain on the flower and concentrated during the extraction process. USDA organic regulations prohibit any genetically modified
(GMO) ingredients in a certified organic product.

Preserve the Environment

And Mitigate Effects of Climate Change. Organic farmers are required to use Integrated Pest Management practices, protect wildlife, promote biodiversity, and work to improve and maintain native ecosystems.

Increasing organic production also helps mitigate the unwanted spread of GMO crops and contamination. Organic farmers are extremely dedicated to the excellent quality of their soil. Research demonstrates that soil under organic production can remove about 7,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year through sequestration. Farming without pesticides is also better for nearby birds and animals.

The True Value of Organic

Organic farming and production practices are costlier and more time consuming. But, the love and care that goes into growing organic cannabis is well worth the investment. Demanding organic options means a lot; it helps grow the marketplace and change our agricultural system.

Why Relevium™ Organic CBD

CBD oils such as Relevium™ certified organic are held to a much higher standard than non-organic products. CBD oil starts with cannabis plants. Cannabis plant cultivation certified as “organic” requires:

  • Soil must not be treated with prohibited substances (i.e. pesticides) for three years before growing.
  • No synthetic additives can be added to the soil to boost growth.
  • Soil must be maintained through crop rotations, natural ground tilling and naturally-sourced fertilizers

During harvest and handling, all non-agricultural ingredients – synthetic or not – must conform to strict federal requirements.

Cannabis flower have their oils “extracted” for their CBD. This extraction process concentrates the oil, as well as any present harmful substances like synthetic pesticides. Because they are not present in the cannabis plants, they are not present in Relevium™ organic CBD oil.

NuSierra 100% Organic
