Ariel Maman attended the University of Colorado Boulder and graduated with an English Major with an emphasis on Anthropology In 2009, Ariel formed Birdsong Organics, one of the first legal cannabis supply companies in the United States. Birdsong Organics offered high quality organic cannabis in the form of a multilevel supply chain management service for dispensaries in the state of Colorado. At its peak, the business cultivated and sold more than 1,000 lbs of smokable cannabis over a one year period and brokered nearly 250 lbs per week to local dispensaries from other legal cannabis groups. As sales in the cannabis industry became more competitive, Ariel shifted his focus to cultivation and consulting as a service, under his company Flora Consulting, LLC (“Flora”) which was formed in 2014. Flora offered turnkey cultivation systems and sales consulting for cannabis companies. By 2013, Flora conducted business in MA, CA, MI, CO, FL and ME. Flora was the first company in the Cannabis industry to achieve over 30% THCa in a cannabis flower as verified through lab testing in Massachusetts 2014. In 2016, Ariel recognized the limitations of working in the THC industry because of varying regulations and licensing across state borders, thus shifting his focus to the Hemp and CBD industry. Ariel founded his first CBD Company In 2016, Derivatives USA, which was eventually improved upon and re-established as Industrial Hemp Partners (IHP Holdings, LLC).
