3. ABSOLUTE XTRACTS
AbsoluteXtracts—ABX—is a homegrown Northern California company committed to providing patients with pure, safe, and potent cannabis concentrates.A quality vape experience starts with healthy plants. Hearty clones are taken from young, carefully tended mother plants, genetically fingerprinted, and tested for viruses and pathogens.These cannabis plant-starts are grown in greenhouses and on small family farms throughout Northern California. When ready, they’re harvested and transported to Santa Rosa for processing.The plant materials are tested for pesticides, molds and bacteria. After passing inspection, the herb is dried, cured and processed in a pharmaceutical grade “clean” room.We use clean, high pressure carbon dioxide at low temperatures to extract the cannabis oil. We employ proprietary methods to preserve the terpenes, that give each strain its distinctive smell and flavor. We package our cannabis oil in our own specially made cartridges that are designed to ensure easy flow and a reliable draw. We add absolutely no additives.

At the end of every month our clients will receive a new box, whether they choose to get the Edibles box every month or switch between our Intimates box, Sampler Box, and our Pet box, we guarantee that each box will be different each month.
3. VCC Brands/Venice Cookie Company
Kenny Morrison started VCC Brands/Venice Cookie Company in 2008 with business partner Marco Hoffman. Morrison noticed a lack of creative edibles for dispensary owners and patients to choose from. Knowing the price for raw cannabis would decrease while demand for edibles would rise, Morrison set out to create one of the industry’s first mainstream edible brands. The company’s famous 420 BAR gets most of the glory. Boasting 180mg of THC, the super-potent chocolate bar practically named itself. The company is known for “raising the bar” not only with its delicious, reliable products and packaging, but for advocating for a future where cannabis can be trusted and used responsibly.

Our goal is to make sure that in every possible way we provide a seed that is true to the genetics of its mother and or hybrid or cross.
