Dragonfly Earth Medicine – DEM Pure Certification
The Pure Certification represents professional outdoor full sungrown, greenhouse, light deprivation, indoor cultivated legally licensed cannabis farms and companies that process, extract or sell Pure Certified Cannabis. It represents large scale farms to boutique craft farms. These farms grow food, bee pollinator gardens, save seeds, create polyculture systems, provide fair and equal pay to all employees, and grow much of their own nutrients. They have created closed loop systems in their cultivation that help ensure the purity of their inputs and their medicine. Hügelkutur beds, swales, and many carbon sequestration techniques are used to create health and balance of soil. Local plant ferments and dynamic teas are created as liquid nutrients. Minimal inputs are needed from the marketplace. Closed loop cultivation is key to all farms and businesses that are certified.
