Suffield’s Lasa Extract sees opportunity in burgeoning CBD market

CBD News Blog – Rick Sotil jokes that, as someone who’s “never even smoked a joint,” he may seem the unlikely leader of a CBD business.

“My kids were laughing,” he recalls, when he first began exploring the venture about two years ago. 

Indeed, it seems a far cry from the Cuba native’s past as a professional world champion jai alai player; and from his other business, Sotil Tree Service, which he’s run for more than 20 years.

But these days he’s bringing the same passion he brought to jai alai and woodworking to Lasa Extract, the Suffield-based business he runs on what used to be a tobacco farm.
