#Cannabisstocks: The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) Launches its Premier Certified Organic Cannabis Brand
TORONTO - September 12, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the "Company" or "TGOD") (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce the launch of its premium, certified organic cannabis brand. This preeminent launch coincides with Canadian Organic Week, the largest annual celebration of organic food, farming and products across the country. This is a pivotal step for the Company in becoming the largest, organic cannabis brand in the world.
Additional details of the launch will be provided in a subsequent press release.
TGOD cannabis adheres to the highest production standards for organic cultivation - the product is grown naturally in Canadian soil, without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. According to a 2018 Hill & Knowlton research study, 57% of Canadian medical cannabis consumers and 43% of recreational cannabis consumers prefer organic cannabis. Of 116 licensed producers in Canada, TGOD is one of only two that are certified organic.
TGOD cannabis is never irradiated, resulting in rich and aromatic terpene profiles that are all natural. The Company's cannabis oils are derived using a super-critical CO2 extraction process that uses no harmful solvents or additives.
As part of the launch, TGOD is selecting 200 beta patients to experience its product this coming January. Applicants will be selected from the Company's Founder's Club enrollment program located here.
"Organically certified cannabis is preferred by Canadian consumers, in both medical and recreational markets," said Andrew Pollock, TGOD's Vice President of Marketing. "Cannabis consumers value the safety, medical efficacy and natural terpene profiles that organic cannabis provides. Our mission is Making Life Better, and our organic cannabis products deliver on that promise. TGOD is an organic community that consumers will be proud to join," continued Pollock.
In addition to producing a premium cannabis experience, TGOD will be the industry leader in sustainability and environmental standards. Production of organic nutrients requires less processing, and organic pest control has less environmental impact due to fewer chemicals entering the ecosystem. TGOD will operate the largest LEED-certified facility in the world and is building all facilities to GMP standards. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, including energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emission reduction, and indoor environmental quality.
"We are thrilled to launch our premium organic brand of TGOD products with a focus on providing the highest-quality cannabis experience in the world," said Brian Athaide, TGOD's CEO. "Our respect for the land is evident in every step of our production process, and we are committed to providing premium products for both our medical and future recreational customers," continued Athaide.
"We are excited to see a company in a new industry that embraces the importance of organic cultivation and product offerings," said Tia Loftsgard, executive director of the Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA). "When cannabis becomes legal, we are delighted that TGOD will be able to provide the option of cleanly grown, certified organic cannabis to the Canadian marketplace."
