Industrial hemp, grown specifically for cannabinoid extraction, was brought into Western Colorado in 2016 on a very small scale. During that year, Founder Wacey Clarke saw the tide that was coming due to the undeniable value of the industrial hemp plant.
Fate was on his side when in Winter 2016 Tanner Willis, a forward thinking veteran of the cannabis industry, collaborated with Wacey to form an industrial hemp operation. Immediately, the infancy of the industry and what it lacked spurred CHS onto become a self-sufficient and cutting edge leader in our exciting new industry.
During the formation of CHS, there has been countless contributors and supporters along the way that continue to challenge and enrich the CHS operation.
