What is the name of your business and when did you start?
Evolab was founded in 2011 by a team of chemists, physicians, and product developers to bring clean Co2 extraction to the Colorado market. We started here in Denver, Colorado and introduced the Co2lors Brand to our Brand lineup in 2017. Co2lors quickly took off due to its unique flavor profiles and clean extractions, and has become one of the most popular vape brands in Colorado! In fact, the Co2lors Sweet Melon flavor is the most popular vape sold across the state!
Where can people find you / your products / your service? (location, online, email or social media?)
We are in over 250 dispensaries across Colorado. You can also find us online at www.co2lors.com and on IG as @co2lors
What services or products do you offer?
All Co2lors flavors are made with all-natural plant terpenes, cannabis terpenes, and 100% cannabis oil. Nothing synthetic or artificial is ever used. We have 10 permanent flavors: Apricot, Blueberry, Cosmic Apple. Grape Dreams, Strawberry Lemonade, Strawnana, Sweet Melon, Watermelon, White Cherry, and Wild Berry. Keep an eye out for our rotating limited-edition seasonal flavors!
What was your mission or purpose at the start of your company?
We wanted to create the cannabis industry’s first clean Co2 extraction technology to preserve the flavors, aromas, and experiences that we love so much about the plant while pushing the limits of cannabis science to deliver only the purest experience and taste.
What made you choose to start a company in this industry?
In 2011, the cannabis industry looked very different than it does now, and there weren’t a lot of options in the market for vapes that focused on clean extractions. Co2 extraction was relatively unknown at that time, and we knew based off our research that we could develop products that focused on preserving the flavor profile of the plant.
Why do you feel your business is important to the community?
We know that for many people, cannabis can feel very intimidating, and people are often overwhelmed with all the options on the market. Co2lors is an easy-to-use, fun, and flavorful vape option. Consumers can depend on our consistency. Plus, not everyone enjoys the taste of cannabis, but they may still want the benefits and experience that comes from it. We offer several different vape options in our product lineup to ensure that every consumer is covered.
Does your business give back to your community?
Yes! Two of our most recent initiatives were in support of our LGBTQIA+ community and the environment. For PRIDE this year we released a limited-edition flavor under our Co2lors line called Rainbow Reign, and we donated to the Center on Colfax here in Denver. We also donated to Pike Peak Pride in CO Springs for their Club Q Memorial. On Earth Day, our team joined a community group in a day-long river clean-up initiative, and together we were able to help clean up miles of the Colorado River in downtown Denver.
