Colorado Company Hires Former FDA Chemist to Boost CBD Product Development

Veritas Farms, Inc. is a vertically integrated firm focused on producing high quality, whole plant full spectrum hemp oils and extracts flush with cannabinoids. The company dabbles in everything from vegan capsules, tinctures, and lotions to formulations for sublingual applications and pet products, all infused with full-spectrum hemp oil from hemp grown on its 140-acre farm in Pueblo, Colorado. It also manufactures private label products for several distributors and retailers.

The company recently took on Daniel Connors, Ph.D., a former FDA employee, as an executive to assist in the research and development of new products.

He received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Denver before joining the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as an Analytical Chemist. He was instrumental during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf shore, ultimately receiving special recognition for his contribution to the response.

During Dr. Connor’s tenure at the FDA, he built and operated labs, managed teams of specialized scientists, generated multiple patents and produced and maintained health, safety, and environmental records and policies for large corporations.

Alexander Salgado, CEO and co-founder of Veritas Farms states that Dr. Connors is an unbelievable addition to the Veritas Farms team.

“The extensive background and knowledge that Dr. Connors brings to the table is truly invaluable. We are honored to begin working with Dr. Connors, and we are very excited to share some of our planned developments with the world.”

Veritas Farms has been quite busy this year. In January, the company added a new full-spectrum hemp oil infused roll on to its topical line. Dubbed the Veritas Farms Zen Roller, it comes in two unique scents, one for Mood and another for Mind. They come in 0.33oz sized bottles, making them ideal for travelers on the go. Each bottle contains 100mg of the company’s full-spectrum hemp oil.

Earlier this month, Veritas Farms launched three separate ingestible pet products, all made with natural ingredients. The Veritas Pets Skin & Allergy Chews are designed to maintain a pet’s skin health and address seasonal allergies, and the Veritas Pet Calming Chews will help keep pets calm during stressful situations like fireworks while the Veritas Pets Joints Care Chews are formulated to support healthy joints. Each chew contains 10mgs of full-spectrum hemp oil.

“We design each new pet product with premium, targeted ingredients along with our full-spectrum hemp oil to help pets and pet owners alike find balance and wellness in their day. Our products are very different from many of the CBD pet products currently on the shelves, and we strive to become a leader in this space with our award-winning products,” said CEO Alexander Salgado after the launch.

Industry watchers think this introduction of additional CBD products by Veritas is likely to get other sector players, such as Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX), thinking about new ways to get CBD to consumers as well as their furry friends.
