Our plants are grown in both field and greenhouse environments in both Loveland and Durango Colorado. Our hemp is cultivated using living soil organic principles, leveraging strictly organic inputs and in full compliance with the controls defined by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. Where necessary, we have gone beyond conventional organic protocols to regenerate the soil in the fields we use in order to avoid any potential issues with soil phytoremediation by the plants.
We leverage local inputs wherever possible to avoid the carbon impact associated with shipping amendments across the country/world. Additionally, we operate all of our cultivation environments on closed-loop permaculture principles to recycle and reuse wherever possible. We brought over 30 irrigated acres and 30,000 sq ft of greenhouse capacity online since 2014. Between our various Loveland properties we are able to scale to meet our customers’ needs with a consistent high quality supply.
We pride ourselves on the cleanliness and consistency of our products – whether in botanical form or concentrated oils. All essential oils and biological pesticides used in our integrated pest management program are OMRI certified and are non-toxic. All products are tested by 3rd party analytical labs using a variety of testing methodologies and are free from pesticides, heavy metals, molds and harmful microbials.
Elite Botanicals has been licensed under the Colorado Department of Agriculture since 2014 and have a current annual production output of approximately 20,000 pounds of botanical material. While Elite isn’t the largest operation in the state, our focus on quality, delivery and customer service make us the best choice for customers seeking a true partnership. We believe in vertical integration not simply for the sake of growth, but rather to control quality and customer value delivery.
