Host / Cannabis Technology & Application Expert
Chip Baker has over fifteen years of experience in the technology and application of cannabis cultivation. He is an industry expert in potting soil manufacturing, composting, Verma Culture, imports/exports, manufacturing, distribution, wholesale, and retail sales of indoor and outdoor specialty horticultural products. He’s the guy the experts go to when they need to increase their yield, decrease their overhead and grow incredible cannabis.
Chip Baker has always been an entrepreneur. When he was ten years old, he began making wedding mints for his mother’s catering business. Growing up on a farm in rural Georgia and trying to make his way in the world, he moved onto cutting grass, raking leaves, and selling fire crackers and newspapers. As he gained experience in how businesses work, his entrepreneurial ideas grew.
In 1997, he moved to Northern California and became an early pioneer of an emerging cultivation industry. Coming from an agrarian background, he had an innate horticultural knowledge and honed his ideas about developing ancillary businesses to support the new booming industry. In 2002, he began importing coco fiber from Asia as an agricultural supplement to potting soil. In 2006, after he developed a complete line of soils, he founded Royal Gold Soil.
Ten years and 25 million tons of coco fiber later, Chip sold Royal Gold Soil and started Cultivate Colorado, the largest indoor horticultural supplier in the galaxy with two stores in the Denver Metropolitan Area. Chip is currently developing a new potting soil and fertilizer company in Colorado. He is also a consultant for First Capital Ventures, Bickel Consulting, Denver Consulting Group, government agencies, growers and independent business people in the cultivation industry.
