  1. World class teams develop world class ideas
  2. Brands will drive the cannabis conversation
  3. Quality and Authenticity are the pillars on which brands are built
  4. Secure supply chains are essential for growth
  5. The future of cannabis cultivation is organic

The Future
is Organic

Certified organic production is at the heart of our supply chain. Members of the Rubicon team wrote the first federally-recognized organic standard for medical marijuana cultivation (ISO 17065, FVOPA). The processes sited in FVOPA have been developed in Rubicon’s own research and development facilities and are applied in all of Rubicon’s cultivation centers internationally.

Quality cannabis is judged on the basis of cannabinoid production and terpenoid production, commonly known as flavor, aroma and effect. Organic cannabis produces significantly more terpenes, which has been demonstrated conclusively both scientifically, in the study of organic tomato production, and through countless consumer experience feedback studies. Consumers have will also attested to organic cannabis’ stronger and longer lasting effects. Rubicon is currently pursuing scientific studies to demonstrate this conclusively.

Economically, organic production has historically been up to 50% more expensive than conventional production, largely due to decreased yields. Rubicon has developed proprietary growing medium systems and fertilizers that are not only less expensive than conventional fertilizer programs, they result in comparable or better yields than industry leading hydroponic production. The result is high quality, pesticide- free cannabis products, at the lowest possible production cost

50% of all cannabis consumers are willing to pay a premium for organic products
