Solis Tek Applauds California Pesticide Ban for Cannabis Cultivation
Solis Tek's New Nutrient Division is Committed to Creating Safe, Organic Products to Enhance Cannabis Growth and Meet the Rigorous Requirements of States like California
CARSON, CA--(Marketwired - January 22, 2018) - Solis Tek Inc. (OTCQB: SLTK), a vertically integrated technology innovator, developer, manufacturer and distributor focused on bringing products and solutions to commercial cannabis growers in legal markets across the U.S, today commented on the California Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation's new regulations announced on January 1, 2018, banning the use of a long list of pesticides in cannabis cultivation for medical and adult-use industries. This list represents the most stringent in the country to protect users from ingesting cannabis with harsh chemicals, heavy metals and other properties.
"Solis Tek applauds the California Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation and encourages other governing bodies in states with adult- and medical-use laws in place to take the same responsible look at how flower is being cultivated with an eye toward protecting consumers," said Dennis G. Forchic, Chief Executive Officer of Solis Tek.
Mr. Forchic continued, "Having served this industry for nearly a decade, Solis Tek recognizes there is a better way for cultivators to increase yield, protect their crops, enhance their product and ultimately grow healthier plants. This is possible using all-natural products made with organic compounds that are devoid of any banned pesticides, animal by-products, heavy metals, chemicals, or strong odors. These are the types of products that Solis Tek is committed to creating to serve the growing cannabis sector, which is projected to reach $3.7 billion in 2018 in California alone."
"In response to welcomed changes in regulations in various states like that of California and the anticipated tightening of regulations as more states legalize cannabis, our Zelda Horticulture division is developing rigorously tested, all-natural products that provide new and alternative solutions to many of the banned products which have been previously utilized by cannabis cultivators. For example, our first product, Terpenez, provides a safe, effective and regulatory-compliant solution for growers in legal markets both in the U.S. and internationally to enhance their plants' terpene profile," Mr. Forchic added.
Mr. Forchic concluded, "As a response to the new California ban, Solis Tek is aggressively targeting the hydroponic stores in the Golden state, most of which carry our lighting product solutions, that now are replacing banned products on their shelf. Retailers and commercial growers alike have made clear their desire for Solis Tek's products under development, in beta testing, and nearing national launch, all of which contain NONE of the California banned products."
