THE HISTORY OF ROBHOTS
From the start
Robhots was started in January 2014, just toying around with various edible recipes. Using excess material from our personal medical grow, we made our gummies for people who had legitimate medical reasons for them, and soon realized a demand for our product.
WHY THE NAME ROBHOTS?
The two questions we get asked the most: how do you say Robhots, and why are they called Robhots? Great questions!
When we started at home, we found a simple robot shaped mold, and when we saw the demand for our product tried to pair our great tasting and robot shaped gummy with a great brand name. After days of trying different names and logo combinations, Robhots was born. We got the name because at the time we were putting butane hash oil (BHO) into our robot shaped gummies, and since we were putting BHO into robots, we put BHO into the name robots thus producing Robhots.
Despite hearing numerous ways to pronounce Robhots, it is pronounced simply as robots. The "h" is silent in the name, but it has a great backstory behind the name and is a big part of how we got to where we are today!
OPENING TO THE COLORADO MEDICAL MARKET
We decided to pursue a way onto Colorado's Medical Marijuana market, and after months of pitching our product and company, we found a company to pair with and get our product to Colorado stores.
Despite forming a partnership and getting set for the medical market, it was months before we finally were ready to go and open for sales. We finally got rolling and made our first Robhots gummies in September of 2015.
ROBHOT MULTIPACKS & ALL-NATURAL HASHWRAPS
We worked with our recipe that we always used, and the molds we always used - still making the same great robot shape that people came to know and love. Some minor adjustments to our recipe was needed to sustain shelf life, and once we did that we rolled out a 150mg multipack to go with our 100mg single-serve gummy.
Soon after the new year turned over to 2016, we released our Hashwraps - a 100% all-natural fruit rollup that is infused with bubble hash. This combination of all-natural fruit and ice & water extracted bubble hash made for quite possibly the most healthy edible on the market. They quickly became a hit, and people were enjoying our flavor variety from the Spring all the way up through the end of Summer; unfortunately the new regulations handed down in the Colorado edible market makes it hard to continue to produce these. We're currently looking at all options to bring the Hashwraps back.
Robhots relaunch - a new gummy
With the new regulations came many changes for Robhots. A new logo, new gummy design, new packaging were all changes that we had to make to stay compliant within the Colorado Medical Market.
Since we were going to have a whole new look, we decided to change the gummy itself too. We developed a new recipe that is softer and has a better gummy consistency. In addition, all of our gummies will now be infused with raw THC distillate - a tasteless, colorless form of THC that averages upwards of 96% THC. With this, our new gummies are extremely consistent with both flavor and dosage with each and everyone we produce.
Initially we had just our single serve 125mg gummy and a 180mg multipack, but due to the demand of our patients we made a 500mg mega dose pack of gummies. First available in three flavors, we quickly had to add three more and now have Blue Raspberry, Lemon Lime, Peach Mango, Pineapple Tangerine, Strawberry Banana, and Strawberry Kiwi.
For 2018 we have added a recreational side to our medical side, and are beginning to hit shelves in January.. We'll be making a 100mg pack with ten 10mg pieces, and three flavors per pack. Initially the flavors are the same as our medical 180mg packs - Berries, Citrus, Fruits, Reds, and Tropical.
To get our gummies out to the masses of the recreational market, and provide the best quality edibles, we've teamed up with Focused Labs Oil (FLO). FLO specializes in high quality concentrates and distillates, paired with a team of people that execute production to the most efficient of possibilities. Adding our Robhots Gummies to this team has only led to an even better gummy that has the best consistency and flavor of any gummies we've made to date.
We've got lots in the works too! 2018 will be a big year, and we're planning to add to our product line - CBD gummies, vegan-friendly gummies, sugar free gummies, and more! Stay tuned!
We strive to improve everyday, and continue to make a great, consistent edible with each one that we produce. Hearing from you about how we did (good or bad) will help us continue to improve and make some of the best edibles available today. Please reach out to us here on the website, email, or on one of our forms of social media.
We hope you enjoy our edibles, have a great day!
