SoHum Living Soils® Receives OIM Certification of Registration

SoHum Living Soils® Is Now Triple Certified

SoHum Living Soils® is proud to announce that we’ve received OIM registration for our living soil products. This certification from the California Department of Food and Agriculture ensures our products are compliant with all California state regulations for organic materials, which is critical for any clean green organic products used in cannabis cultivation throughout the state.

What Is OIM Certification of Registration?

The Organic Input Material (OIM) Program registers fertilizing materials used in organic crop and food production in the state of California. OIM certified materials are verified to comply with the California Fertilizing Materials Law and Regulations and USDA National Organic Program Standards.

In addition, all OIM products distributed throughout the state must be registered with the Fertilizing Materials Inspection Program (FMIP), an industry funded program responsible for enforcing quality standards for organic fertilizing materials. FMIP investigators across the state conduct routine inspections and sampling to ensure all materials adhere to regulations governing the manufacturing and distribution of fertilizing materials in California.

SoHum Living Soils® Is Now Triple Certified

With this OIM certification, SoHum Living Soils® is now triple certified. In 2021, we received OMRI and Clean Green dual certification for our living soil products. These three certifications give you peace of mind that your living soil aligns with clean green, organic and sustainable growing practices.

To receive certification form the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), products are evaluated to determine whether it can be used in organic cultivation and production under the USDA National Organic Program. The Clean Green Certification Program was developed to provide a certification process for cannabis products that is comparable to the USDA organic certification provided for organically grown produce. Clean Green certified cannabis products ensure sustainable conditions were maintained during every phase of the production process, from seed to store.

Very few living soil products have achieved all three of these certifications. This triple certification establishes SoHum products among the premium organic living soil options on the market.

Raising the Bar for Organic, Clean Green Certified Cannabis Cultivation

These certifications are critical for any growers interested in staying on the forefront of the organic, clean green cannabis cultivation movement. To produce a Clean Green Certified cannabis product, CGC inputs and organic growing methods must be used throughout the grow process. OMRI certified soil products provide you with peace of mind that your soil is compliant with all CGC guidelines. In addition, OIM certification is essential for any growers looking to produce organic cannabis plants to be distributed in the state of California.

SoHum living soil products can be used for both indoor and outdoor cannabis growing applications. This complete water-only living soil allows you to maximize your plant’s genetic potential while eliminating any human error associated with the cannabis cultivation process. The end result is a truly hassle-free growing process that yields the highest quality plants possible.

SoHum Wins Water-Only Cannabis Grow Challenge

water-only cannabis

At SoHum, we are dedicated to simplifying the process of growing cannabis. We believe that you can get a cleaner, greener cannabis crop with water-only growing practices, and we created a soil to give great results under these conditions.

That’s why we’re proud to announce that SoHum won the water-only challenge performed by celebrity grower Chad Westport of the Future Cannabis Project and Twin Peaks Cannabis. After completing a full grow of 8 plants from seed using only soil and water, Chad declared SoHum Living Soils super soil mix the best growing medium in terms of the product produced.

Why Choose a Water-Only Cannabis Growing Method

water-only cannabisA water only method is the best way to prevent the bioaccumulation of toxic metals in your cannabis plant. Cannabis is a natural bio-accumulator, as are humans. Exposing yourself to cannabis with high levels of arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury can cause negative health effects. Since many of us see cannabis as a healthier, natural approach to medication and recreation, we want to avoid this.

A water-only growth approach gives you control over all the elements entering the plant. Starting with a soil free from toxic metals, like SoHum Living Soil, and adding only pure water, helps your home-grown cannabis avoid heavy metal bioaccumulation.

The Water-Only Grow Challenge

In a water-only grow, you are highly dependent on the quality of the soil for the quality of plant you produce. Therefore, Chad Westport designed a Water-Only Soil Challenge to test various soils and see which one performed the best. Chad selected four soils – SoHum, KIS Organics, Appellation Supply, and a mystery soil. These are all great living soils, and we’re honored to be in this company. (We’re leaving Chad to reveal the mystery soil in his next video.)

For this challenge, all 8 plants grew entirely in the selected soil. They were transplanted from one-gallon pots into 7-gallon pots, then grown for ten weeks. To better assess the differences in soils, Chad grew two plants each of four different cultivars so that every soil had two different cultivars in it and every cultivar was grown in two different soils. Ten days after transplant, they were moved to flower and all plants flowered by the end of the 60-day timetable.

At the end of the grow cycle, Chad harvested all plants, and assessed the products.

SoHum Wins the Challenge

After harvest, Chad assessed the products from each plant to determine which soil led to the best product. He assessed products in terms of yield, terpene profile, and a few other characteristics he’ll explain in more detail in his video, pronouncing SoHum the winner of the challenge.

SoHum Lets You Grow Great Cannabis Easy, Clean, and Green

If you are looking for an easy way to get great yields of cannabis plants while maintaining all the excellent properties you chose your cultivars for, then choose SoHum Living Soils. Our soil includes everything your plants need to make it to harvest. Just add water and let nature do the rest.

SoHum Living Soils Receives OMRI and Clean Green Dual Certification

SoHum Living Soils is OMRI Certified

SoHum Living Soils® is proud to announce that we’ve received an OMRI and Clean Green dual certification for our living soil products. These certifications are crucial if you’re trying to grow Clean Green Certified (CGC) cannabis plants. When you use SoHum products, these certifications will give you peace of mind that your living soil aligns with clean green, organic and sustainable growing practices.

What Is OMRI Certification

SoHum Living Soils is OMRI CertifiedThe Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) is an international nonprofit organization that reviews products to determine whether they are approved for use in organic production and processing. As part of this independent review process, OMRI will evaluate each individual input to determine whether it can be used in certified organic cultivation and production under the USDA National Organic Program. OMRI certification gives you peace of mind that quality materials have been used, and that the living soil product is a high-quality medium for cannabis cultivation.

What Is Clean Green Certification?

SoHum Living Soils is Clean Green CertifiedWhile organically grown produce can earn an organic certification from the US Department of Agriculture, there isn’t a comparable federal certification for cannabis products. In order to address this void, the Clean Green Certification Program was developed. It creates a certification process that holds cannabis products to the exacting standards that have become associated with organic growing.

Cannabis plants that have achieved Clean Green Certification have been kept clean and sustainable throughout every phase of the production process, from seed to store. This certification ensures that sustainable conditions were maintained during:

  • The grow process
  • The care of plants while they grew
  • The processing and storing of the plant

By receiving Clean Green Certification, SoHum living soil products can confidently be used by any growers who are committed to using an organic, environmentally sustainable process for cultivating their plants.

Raising the Bar for Organic, Clean Green Certified Cannabis Cultivation

In order to grow a Clean Green Certified product, you must use CGC inputs and an organic growing method that is consistent with CGC guidelines. SoHum’s OMRI and Clean Green dual certification means you can confidently use our living soil products as part of your organic growing process and be able to produce Clean Green Certified plants.

Our living soil is a fully amended, pH-buffered growing medium which can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.

New SoHum Bulk Totes Cut Labor Costs for Commercial Growers

SoHum Living Soils is proud to announce the arrival of our new custom commercial totes. These bags are geared specifically for commercial growers, and they offer a variety of benefits compared with other bulk totes currently on the market. You’ll save time, labor and money, making this packaging design a must-use with your grow operation.

The Most Effective Way to Deliver Your Product in Bulk

SoHum Living Soils Custom Commercial TotesOur new totes provide a better way for SoHum Living Soil to be delivered in bulk. The design of our totes incorporates three primary features which help to lower annual operating expenses:

  • 2 cubic yard size – This bulk delivery size is equivalent to 39.6 of our standard 1.5 cubic foot bags, allowing your operations to maximize work productivity and efficiency with fewer employees, saving capital on labor and improving your profit margins.
  • Spout bottom – Our new totes are designed with a spout/funnel on the bottom to release the flow of product from the bottom of the totes. This eliminates the need to shovel out soil from the top, which is labor intensive. Most other totes use a flat sewn panel on the bottom, requiring the tote to be cut or the soil to be dipped out with a smaller five-gallon bucket, again creating additional labor costs. Our bottom spout is a 14-inch diameter tube that is 18 inches long on the bottom of the tote. In addition, the spout discharge has a rope drawstring to allow for the flow soil into your grow containers. With the use of a forklift or a tractor with a front-end loader, the tote’s four lift loops can hold the tote above the grow containers that need to be filled with soil. Using the spout and drawstring flow gate, these containers can be quickly filled, and soil can be dispersed in an assembly line manner in order to save valuable time and money.
  • Double stack capability – Most totes on the market cannot be double stacked on a pallet and therefore create unnecessary shipping costs. We purposely designed our totes so they CAN be double stacked ,resulting in twice as many totes on a flatbed semi-trailer and effectively slashing logistics costs in half when compared to traditional totes.

In addition to saving time, labor and money, our custom totes leave a smaller ecological footprint than standard bags. Using our totes will allow you to ensure your grow operation remains on the forefront of sustainable, greener growing.  As an additional benefit, our spout bottom totes can be repurposed for a variety of uses around your operations.
