What We Do
The Jordan Hemp Industry Organizing Group is developing quality benchmarks for Jordanian Hemp products and processes for members of our industry, which are transparent to legislators and law enforcement. Naturally, our definition of what Jordanian Hemp is, also makes clear what is not Jordanian Hemp and cannot be tolerated in our industry.
To ensure purity and quality of Jordanian Hemp, only certified members (individuals and companies), operating under strict standards, may operate in the Jordanian hemp industry. We are the only Jordanian organization that will provide certificates to produce Jordanian Hemp crops and product, and to work in our industry.
The Jordan Hemp Industry Organizing Group is developing triple bottom line (3BL) standards for companies to encourage profitable business practices, jobs and community development, and protection of our environment.
