Advanced Nutrients was founded in 1999 by BigMike Straumietis when he saw an opportunity to create plant foods designed specifically for organic cannabis.
Today, nearly 20 years later, the company brings in more than $105 million a year in sales in 97 countries, and employs 25 Ph.D.’s who design and test cutting-edge cannabis-growing technologies under BigMike’s direction, all backed by the Advanced Nutrients 100 percent money-back guarantee. Not that you’d ever need it, of course, with growers today achieving up to and in excess of 4 pounds per 1,000-watt grow light using its nutrients.
(In fact, we’ve heard that the Advanced Nutrients team of scientists has achieved more than 5 pounds per grow light in the lab and are perfecting their formulations, so we look forward to hearing more about that soon.)
To hear BigMike explain it, they haven’t even gotten started yet! That’s because his focus these days is on the Future of Cannabis. And that future is largely organic.
“It’s no secret that consumers love organic products. In fact, organics are the fastest growing sector of the US food industry,” BigMike says.
How Advanced Nutrients Is Pioneering The Future of Cannabis
California is the No. 1 state in the country for organic farming and only allows products registered with the Organic Input Material (OIM) Program to carry the label “organic.” And because all other states also accept the OIM seal for organic products, Advanced Nutrients chose to embrace the OIM Program so it could sell its organic nutrients in all states.
In fact, as far as we can tell, Advanced Nutrients is the only cannabis nutrients company in California that has been certified for the OIM Program.
Plus, California’s OIM Program is largely considered the strictest organic certification there is. Which means all growers — no matter where you live in the world — are guaranteed a better, cleaner, more pure nutrient when choosing OIM products.
That’s why Advanced Nutrients is so excited about its Organic OIM line of products. It knows these products work and it knows every ingredient, every supplier, every manufacturing process, and its factories have been repeatedly vetted and inspected to ensure compliance with the program.
So why care about California’s standards, especially if you live in another state or even in another country?
When you use Advanced Nutrients’ Organic OIM line of products, you can be sure you’re benefiting from the absolute highest standards in organic certification. Growers can rest assured they’re feeding clean, pure, potent organic nutrients to their crops — their gardens won’t have traces of synthetics — and customers can rest assured crops are truly 100 percent organic.
The Bottom Line Is, Organic Cannabis Is Growing Up
Driven by increased consumer demand, sales of organic food and nonfood products shattered records and gained new market share in 2016, and experts everywhere agree that this trend shows no sign of slowing down in the future.
Consumers care about the products they put into their bodies. They care about the environment. They care about where their products come from, how they’re sourced, and about being responsible citizens of the world. With this popularity comes increased regulation and certification standards, like it or not.
As legal cannabis continues to spread across the nation, especially with California’s full recreational sales opening in 2018, the California OIM Program becomes even more important. Again, Advanced Nutrient is leading the way into the Future of Organic Cannabis and wants us all to follow.
