With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the USDA interim final rule for domestic hemp production, MCS can now accept and certify hemp production under the National Organic Program (NOP) - USDA Organic. We will be discontinuing hemp certification under MC3 beginning in 2020. Please visit the Crops and Other Vegetables page on our website for more information and application materials, as well as our Practice Manual for compliance information. NOTE: Until FDA determines whether CBD-adulterated foods are allowed under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), MCS will not be certifying processed products containing CBD and defined as food unless sold in Maine only under the current legal statutes.
Welcome to The MOFGA Certified Clean Cannabis Program (MC3) page. The MC3 Program is a voluntary marketing label designed to ensure customer and patient confidence in your growing practices. To comply, all aspects of your operation pertaining to our standards must be verifiable through an audit process. This audit process consists of an MC3 system plan, review of plan, record keeping analysis, on-site inspection, and ultimately a certification decision. This process occurs on an annual basis.
The deadline for applications is June 30, 2020 for this growing season.
Applications must be received with the following forms linked below, along with any other information deemed necessary to verify your growing practices. Please note: Updated application forms will be available in March of 2020 and we will begin accepting applications then; please view these forms as information only until that date.
