“The Cannabis Certification Council (CCC), with its unique mission, is a perfect vessel for us to support our values in the cannabis space,” said David Bronner, CEO of Dr. Bronner’s, the top-selling soap brand in the US natural market place. “We are committed to making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest value, and we are excited for the CCC to begin driving that ethos in the cannabis industry.”
