The plant, the whole plant, and nothing but the plant

The GoldStract team has over 20 years experience creating nutraceutical-quality botanical extracts. It's been a long journey — we've made botanical extractions in Singapore, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Europe, and the US. We've learned a lot along the way, and we've come to understand and appreciate many plants, some of them quite exotic. We are now applying the knowledge gained from those experiences to organic, sun-grown Northern California Cannabis.

Good botanical concentrates are a combination of art and science: the art of understanding how a plant expresses itself + figuring out the science that allows that expression to remain whole. When we built our custom-made supercritical C02 extraction systems, we drew not only on our patents and trade secrets, but also on the understanding that working with other plants has given us. The combination allowed us to make a system optimized for Cannabis — one that preserves the plant's full expression of effect, flavor, and aroma. We believe that it is the interaction of Cannabis's hundreds of components that make it such a unique and special plant. It's called the "entourage effect," and we preserve it in all of our products. (For more about the entourage effect and other information, please see Ask The Alchemist.)

To achieve the entourage effect, extracts must be pure plant. And that's what our products are. No pesticides, fungicides, or other chemicals are used in growing the plants. No butane, propane, or any other harmful chemicals are used during our process. No glycerine, propylene glycol, or anything else is added. Nor are any flavor or aroma enhancers. It's all the plant.

As a guarantee of this, every batch of our extracts is thoroughly tested by an independent laboratory. We believe our customers should know everything about what they are buying, so we post the entire lab reports on our web site. The lot number is attached to every package, so you can easily find the report for your product by typing the lot number into the search bar on the Home page.

We have worked hard (and continue to work hard) to provide you with the most complete, convenient, and effective experience of Cannabis. Both in our creation of concentrates and in the means of delivery. It turns out that not all cartridges are equal — most impart their own (unwanted) flavors and aromas to the extract. We tried dozens and dozens of them before we found ones that leave the extracts alone.

We are dedicated — and have the science — to deliver nature's essences to our customers in their purest form. After all, Mother Nature knows what she is doing. We are simply passing her work along to you in concentrated form.
