Organic refers to the process in which a crop is cultivated. Organic methods are derived from living matter and refrain from the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs, irradiation, industrial solvents, and other artificial inputs. TGOD's organic process recycles resources, promotes ecological balance, conserves biodiversity, and ultimately produces a safer end-product.
TGOD is a consumer oriented business and truly believes that cultivating organically is the best way to provide consumers with the safe, high-quality, products they deserve.
TGOD is certified organic by ECOCERT, one of the most recognized organic certification bodies in the world.

Cannabinoids are the active compounds found within cannabis. The two most commonly discussed cannabinoids are THC and CBD, due to the fact that they are found in relatively high concentrations in the plant. THC is the main active ingredient within cannabis. It is the compound that is attributed to producing the majority of the psychoactive effects of cannabis. CBD is the second most prominent compound within cannabis. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and has many therapeutic effects.
Anecdotally, Indica is most commonly associated with pain-relief and sedation, whereas Sativa is often described as providing a mentally stimulating effect; hybrids are thought to have a combination of traits from both Indica and Sativa strains. CBD strains, on the other hand, are typically non-intoxicating. They are commonly used to relieve pain and inflammation, and as an anticonvulsant.

TGOD produces cannabis extracts using supercritical fluid CO2 extraction technology. We include a decarboxylation step in our process, which involves heating the cannabis above 120 degrees celsius, to ensure that the medicinal compounds contained in our cannabis oils are biologically active.
Decarboxylation is the process of applying heat to the dried cannabis, which activates cannabinoids in the plant.
A carrier oil is a neutral base oil used to make our cannabis oils easier to dose and easier for our bodies to absorb.
Terpenes are the aromatic compounds that give each strain of cannabis its unique flavour and scent. These compounds are found throughout the natural world, which is why certain strains may have familiar notes of citrus, pine, pepper, or hops. Our terpene profiles are determined through lab testing, and show the amounts of some of the key terpenes present in the strain.
Medical cannabis should be stored in a cool, dark location for optimal results. Health Canada states “the ideal storage temperature for the finished dried cannabis product is 2 °C to 6 °C with a shelf-life of 12 months.”
