PAIN RELIEF FOR THE MASSES
Express
Dixie’s new botanical line offers the world a CBD-rich hemp oil product that has no psychoactive properties and can legally ship to every state in the union.
by R.T. CARRIERO Doobie Staff
With an impressive regulatory framework, Colorado has become a lucrative niche for the entrepreneurs of the Green Rush. Smart, well-funded and consummately professional, these marijuana moguls have put an increasingly respectable face on their formerly-disreputable business. When Dixie Elixirs sole proprietor, Tripp Keber, appeared on 60 Minutes, he was that face—clean shaven, articulate and intelligent. His company is the market leader in THC-infused products ranging from sodas and tinctures to pain relief salves and bath salts. Dixie’s secret is a combination of industrial-grade manufacturing, professional
branding and studious adherence to the law. Dixie’s across-the-board excellence makes the edibles you can get anywhere else in America seem like pot brownies from a Phish concert.
Amendment 64 represents a critical juncture in the short history of the Green Rush. Legalization has created a whole new market of over-21 consumers who are unabashedly looking to get high. The tinctures, edibles and sodas manufactured by Dixie Elixirs certainly have recreational potential and it takes little imagination to envision bottles of Dixie cola replacing beer at parties. However, another segment of the population isn’t in it for the high. As Keber explains: “It’s fascinating because a portion
of medical marijuana patients are embracing the true medicinal aspects of medical cannabis and are not looking for the euphoric or psychoactive properties.” Sufferers from arthritis, migraine, cancer or epilepsy aren’t true potheads and don’t necessarily associate themselves with the weed culture. Basically, they want pain relief without THC. To meet this demand, Dixie has launched a new line of hemp oil products know as Dixie Botanicals, which are completely legal under federal law.
Dixie Is headquartered in an unassuming brick building in the industrial heart of north Denver. The facility is massive, with offices, an industrial kitchen and a stockroom housed in a vault that was once used to store morphine. Imagine if Martha Stewart co-hosted a cooking show with Method Man. That’s what the kitchen smells like, although everyone wears a lab coat, rubber gloves and a hair net. At various stations workers carbonate infused sodas, bag infused candies, and pour distilled THC into chocolate truffle mix. A steel contraption of tubes, dials and conveyor belts bottles Dixie Dew Drops.
Dixie Botanicals is a separate entity, although both firms operate out of the same facility and license intellectual property from Red Dice Holdings, a holding company jointly owned by Tripp Keber and Medical Marijuana Inc. The principle distinction between the two branches is that Dixie Botanicals are infused with oil derived from the seed and stalk of the hemp plant rather than cannabis. Hemp has long been conflated with its nefarious cousin, an unfortunate result of the campaign of misinformation that led to marijuana prohibition during the 1930s. In reality, however, the plants are quite different. Hemp is a reedy shrub that grows 12-16 feet tall and has few leaves or flowers. Its long fibers have an incredible
