Who is Cloris and what do we do?
Jersey-based cannabinoid company with licensed non-psychoactive cannabis assets in Colombia focused on producing high-quality CBD/CBG/CBN isolates at the lowest cost of production for international markets. Cloris plans to begin commercial operations in 2020.
We are Cloris
Cloris operates in the region of Nariño in the South West of Colombia, an area with rich underutilised agricultural resources ideal for large scale cultivation of high Yield CBD/CBG/CBN plants year-round.
Cloris has a unique Post-conflict co-operative model with ECOMUN ensuring local cross-community involvement and support along with the development of a coveted “Brand for Peace” to apply exclusively to Cloris Cannabinoid products.
Cloris has purchased 5 Hectares (12 Acres) and has built an ICA approved Agronomic Evaluation Unit (AEU). ICA requires all strains to be commercialised to Colombia and the region of operation. Cloris has applied to license ten exclusive high yield CBD/CBG/CBN strains to Colombia and Cloris.
Cloris plans call for the construction of the largest isolate GAP cultivation and GMP extraction facility in Colombia.
Cloris Colombia S.A.S is 100% owned by Cloris Ltd.
The Cloris process
ISO GMP accredited large scale CO2 and organic ethanol based closed loop extraction, distilation and isolate production.
Making a difference every day through ethical, inclusive management, and empowering local partnerships. Building the largest Colombian exporter of cannabinoid isolate at the lowest possible production cost.
ECOMUN farmers harvest and dry the crop. Cloris has designed a mobile harvesting unit that will separate the valuable parts of the plant from the waste. The machine can process 3 hectares per day in the field of the ECOMUN farmer.
Local Farmers / CO-OP
Our unique local agreement with ECOMUN gives Cloris access to 140 farmers and 250 Hectares of land adjacent to our planned processing facility. Cloris provides; licensing, seedlings and supervision. ECOMUN farmers provide; land, workers and water to produce finished crop to Cloris specification. Cloris has no liability for managing the local works. Using this model production costs are 15% of current North American hemp production costs.
