Solari Hemp launches today with over 150-acres of hemp farmland in Longmont and Eaton, Colorado, for on-site extraction and distillation and a strong commitment to science and genetics. The farm-to-shelf startup will offer high-quality hemp-derived wellness solutions at affordable pricing to enhance people’s daily health regimens. Aimed at encouraging consumers to “Live Better with Solari,” the wellness company was created by Colorado cannabis pioneer and former founder and CEO of MMJ America, Jake Salazar, former Director of Operations and Business Development at Smoker Friendly International, Colin Gallagher, and former CMO of Rush Communications, Myorr Janha.
Solari Hemp is passionate about its farm-to-shelf operation, which gives the company complete control over each step in the life cycle of growing, extracting, and manufacturing of its products. They track and test each plant and varietal to guarantee the efficacy and quality of its entire product line. They have developed a unique harvesting technology that will increase efficiency and reduce crop damage during this pivotal and difficult step in the hemp farming process.
“Our company is providing high-quality products that consumers can trust and at fair price points so everyone can have access to hemp-derived CBD and feel confident in what they’re putting into their bodies,” said Solari Hemp CEO Kelly Michols. “We believe by being a farm-to-shelf business and owning the entire process from start to finish, it allows us to deliver premium products at affordable prices both in-store and online.”
As one of the largest hemp farmers in Colorado, Solari Hemp functions as both a B2B and B2C company, growing hemp for their own products as well as industrial hemp applications. The company also provides full-service hemp sourcing solutions and white labeling for companies looking for a high-quality source of hemp.
The hemp startup launches with a THC-free line of hemp-derived CBD Isolate products including CBD gummies, CBD liquid soft gel capsules, CBD pain cream, CBD warming, cooling, and arnica balm tins, warming and cooling CBD roll-on gel, and CBD in MCT oil tinctures in lemon and fresh mint flavors. The product offering ranges from 60mg-1,500mg and will be available at health and wellness, drugstores, convenience, tobacco and grocery stores across the U.S., and online at SolariHemp.com.
Solari values its commitment to science and has partnered with Front Range Biosciences, an agricultural biotech company that specializes in tissue culture propagation of high-value crops at an industrial scale to improve consistency and efficiency for clone production. “We are beyond excited to support the production of Solari’s crops by providing the highest quality hemp clones, in addition to aiding in the development of new varieties with unique profiles,” said Dr. Jonathan Vaught, Co-Founder, and CEO of Front Range Biosciences. They have an advanced breeding program for identifying and improving commercially relevant traits located in Lafayette, Colorado. Front Range Biosciences provides clones that are clean, reliable and third-party tested for Solari Hemp’s product line.
To further solidify their commitment to a farm-to-shelf business approach, Courier Labs, a premier bulk wholesale manufacturer of hemp products to global markets, with facilities in California, Colorado, and Louisiana is also an investor and strategic partner to Solari Hemp.
