Why Big Tree?
Standards, Trust & Transparency
The data is in. Graded material sells for its fair market value, has 90% less returns, and creates long-term relationships. Third-party grading is the foundation of trust and transparency. As a third-party service, Big Tree Grading utilizes industry standards and procedural guidelines to ensure consistent quality-verified material across all cultivators. Licensed operators receive an objective qualitative analysis allowing them to confidently buy and/or sell material at scale and distance.
Big Tree Grading uses the International Cannabis and Hemp Standards (ICHS) worldwide grading standard to assess all types of cannabis material and products. The 100-point grading scale is an objective, third-party standard developed by Fair Market Certified in order to determine the quantitative and qualitative data of cannabis material. At Big Tree, we use this standard to provide a Certificate of Grade.

Grading ensures sellers are receiving and buyers are paying fair market prices for their material by comparing it to objective, impartial market data and trends.
