Taking a page from corporations in other industries that are truly committed to their craft, Solstice is so much more than a Washington-based growing facility. They have a deep history within the cannabis community and have evolved with the industry’s changing times to ensure they stay one step ahead of the rest, and then some. Will Denman and Alex Cooley founded the brand in 2011 with a firm belief in the healing powers of medical marijuana and their success has only skyrocketed from that point forward.
Initially, Solstice was quite early in the game and helped to develop performance measures of quality control and cultivation standardization practices that are now used statewide. During this time, they also began the state’s first commercial production operation using the foundational principles they worked so hard to create. After recreational use became the norm, the team built another state of the art facility in the same SoDo neighborhood of Seattle and haven’t looked back since.
Operating on six tenets that range from accountability and relationships to the importance of genetics and processing, they take their craft very seriously. Using only the best phenotypes the world has to offer, they spend countless hours developing their own unique strains. They’ve received more awards than any other company in Washington and it’s for a good reason - their cultivation methods are second to none and their processing procedures ensure a top-notch product every time. With a reputation like that, Solstice has become one of the most trusted brands in the area.
