According to Westword, Jake Salazar, the founder of Denver-based dispensary MMJ America Denver-based dispensary, has launched a new company – Solari Hemp. Solari will feature CBD and hemp products.
Solari will also be co-founded by Colin Gallagher and Myorr Janha worked on the concept for over a year, and developed factors such as designing the product line and ensuring that the right genetics were in place for a successful crop.
Gallagher stated, “We founded the company on the vertical integration model. We wanted to create a company with real partnerships, so our farmers are our equity partners, and we have strategic partners in different parts of the company.”
“It's the most efficient and cost-effective way to produce a quality product and offer it to consumers at an affordable price.” Further, “I wanted to get away from the traditional marijuana industry and dive into something more cutting-edge. Hemp is this gateway to clinical studies, and has different types of cannabinoids that can help people that aren't as prominent in the marijuana industry.”
Solari Hemp is also permitted to sell its products online and to ship them to legalized states. In terms of the products offered, Gallagher stated,
“People use vitamins or supplements on a daily basis. We wanted to create a line of products that people would feel comfortable with and have at least some prior experience with. The goal was to gear the brand to cater to everyone and anyone trying to better themselves.”
