Standards Development Oversight Team

Dr. Bronner's approached The Cannabis Conservancy and Certified Kind to develop regenerative cannabis standards. Their vision was a holistic, sun-grown, soil-based standards that included provisions for human empowerment and community engagement. Dr. Bronner's generously provided funding for the project.

Pilot Program

Flow Kana and some of their independent cultivators are participating in the Sun + Earth Certified pilot program.


Public Engagement

The International Cannabis Farmer's Association (ICFA) hosted several round table sessions during their Whistle Stop Tour which offered critical feedback and facilitated public awareness about the Standards development efforts.


Technical Advisory Committee

Comprised of visionaries, regenerative farmers, industry leaders and technical experts the TAC's goal is to ensure the certification is achievable and realistic for cultivators whose agricultural practices regenerate the earth and our communities.
