Growing for a High Grade Organic Product or Cheaper mid-grade product?

@growopowners @DispensaryOwners Where is the demand heading ? How Important is Organic for your customers? Do the increased input costs pay?
Just read an article where Rubicon Organics is setting its brand apart by getting organic certification from a third party organizations like FVOPA and ECOCERT in adherence with the federal standard, called the Canadian Organic Standards.

Just like Whole Foods, consumers will pay a premium for certified organic greens

I was just curious what dispensary owners and growers were seeing in demand for truly organic products and if the consumers were willing to pay the difference.

This seems to imply that cannabis has to be organic in order to be high grade?

@joel_keygrow Good point. That statement growing for High grade organic may imply what you have stated.
Rubicon is striving to produce high grade cannabis and to be grown organically.
I was curious as to clients demand for organic over non organic.
Would it amount to 10% of the market? maybe more?
