1906 New Highs Facility Tour

1906 Facility Tour

Have you ever wondered what goes into making an edible? Do you happen to love chocolate? 1906 New Highs regularly opens their facility for tours and we decided to explore. If you don’t know, 1906 is a chocolate edible company that produces such products as Midnight, Chill and as seen on CNN High Love.

1906 high love chocolate

 

1906 kindly opened their doors for us to take a peak at all that goes into making THC infused chocolates. They’re located on the eastern side of Denver in Henderson, Co. You get a real sense of community when you walk into the 1906 facility.  The best part of 1906 is that everything happens under one roof. Peter Barsoom, the founder and CEO of 1906, has an office next to his admin. His admin resides next to the space where all the magic begins.

When you step into the lobby of 1906, you’re immediately greeted with an open interior decorated with the best of 1906. After signing the guest book, Peter and Maria (my tour guide) extended one of the warmest welcomes. While waiting for the tour begin, the office crew laughed with me over our favorite edible stories, and the chemist and I marveled at Yo-Yo Ma playing whimsically in the background. The care placed into the products is extended to the team working behind the scenes. Love. Love is the glue that holds 1906 together.

Walk with me as we tour the 1906 facility.

Unlike other edible companies in Denver, 1906 uses single strain cannabis for all infusions. Using single strain cannabis allows uniformity and control in your experience. Want to know which strain is used? Check the label.

This box used the Blue Dream strain (sativa). On the side every tin or box, 1906 includes information on which strained was used during the production of the chocolate you’re about to enjoy. Extracting the strain looks nothing as I imagined. I’m not exactly sure how I imagined cannabis extract – thinking it’d be green doesn’t make logical sense either.

In this photo, you see the single strain extraction. Each container holds all the distillates that go into the 1906 edibles. The small room next to the lobby is the area where science meets culinary. The lovely 1906 chemist plays around with THC, CBD, terpenes and plant materials. Plant materials? Yes – more than cocoa, sugar, milk, and cannabis go into the formulation of 1906 chocolate. The GO experience includes plant materials such as galango for a fast energy boost, L-theanine for calming and soothing, caffeine, and theobromine for lowering blood pressure and increased circulation.

Pictured above is a container of cocoa and plant materials mixed together waiting for its distillate. Pictured below is an used container with only a bit of cocoa left. Personally, diving into the bucket and taking a huge sniff sets the tone for the entire tour.

Leaving the small room full of chemistry, I stepped into the room where all the magic happens. The warehouse opened up to a space clearly defined by station depending upon what’s being created, packaged, and stored.  1906 believes in creating a chocolate that doesn’t leave a footprint on our planet. Inside the warehouse, they use the same machines in order to create all the experience chocolate. Great measures are taken to ensure that all equipment is cleaned after each batch.

The chambers that hold the actual cocoa are big enough to hold an adult.

When the containers are filled, the image is memorizing. The explosion of cocoa hitting your senses almost overwhelms. You’re taken back to your childhood with all those wonderful, delicious moments of enjoying milk and dark chocolate.

The next part of the tour took me into the section creating some Bliss – pun intended. 1906 Bliss mixes milk chocolate and peanut butter. The herbs used in the Bliss help alleviate the mood naturally being a great option for uplift your day whenever you need it. The cups are made into trays before packaged and stacked high.

All the orange trays in the photo are filled with Bliss cups.

1906 chocolate facility tour

There are THOUSANDS of Bliss cups ready to be packaged! In order to simplify the process, 1906 uses trays with the THC molded into the cup. Metal trays help create the orange trays pictured above.

The final section of the tour lead me to the area that created the beans we all know and love. The coffee beans tumble inside a machine. As the beans turn, cocoa is poured, evenly coating the beans as they cycle.

Fun fact: I found a hairdryer casually resting on a table. Without fail, I had to inquire.

1906 chocolate facility tour

The fats and herbs added to the chocolate help create the shine we see when we open GO beans. In order to create shine and add the THC sign to each individual bean mind you, they have this hairdryer to keep the chocolate “melted.”

Insider Look:

Did you know that 1906 is rolling out a new product? Do you prefer the experience over the flavor? Does cannabis taste bad to you? This summer 1906 will roll out little micro dose tablets that can be swallowed like any supplement on the market. 1906 chocolate facility tour

Color combinations have to still be finalized however the photo above will be a close match. Each tablet reflects an experience and single origin strain distillate. Enjoy the plant without having to bypass the cannabis flavor.

710 Dab Daze Concentrates

Why do people use concentrates? Because they like it. Let’s not forget the health benefits of vaping over traditionally smoking marijuana. Whenever you’re inhaling – smoke or vape, you’re inhaling more than cannabinoids and terrapin. Studies found traditional smoking contains over 111 compounds including toxins. In contrast, concentrates test for only 3 compounds. Scientist find that vape users are less likely to experience respiratory problems. The smell of marijuana from vaporizers is less evident making it easier to mask usage.

Image result for live rosin

Concentrates come in a few forms: 1) shatter, 2) wax, 3) resin, 4) rosin and 5) distillate. Shatter often resembles hard candy. Butane or CO2 is used to extract cannabinoids from the marijuana leafs till it forms a hard amber like substance. Wax follows a very similar pattern, however heated at a different temperature to form an ear-wax looking substance.  Live Resin follows the similar process as shatter however it’s extraction comes from flash freeze-dried marijuana leafs. Rosin is a solvent-less extract produced by hand pressing bubble hash from freeze-dried leaves. Distillates take the extraction process further to leave nothing but pure cannabiniods.

Don’t get lost exploring the world of concentrates – we have a few vendors we recommend. Each vendor offers their own unique take on the world of concentrates. Below are the sales associated and special snip-bits for each vendor – Silverpeak, TR Concentrates, Concentrated Love, Summit, Binske, and Evolab.
