Even as cannabis goes commercial you won’t find a suit in our office. We grew up with this plant and we’re here because, like you, it has deeply affected us all in one way or another.
Early on, we decided to invest most of our money into R&D. We want to unlock the mysteries of cannabis and then use it to create disruptive, revolutionary experiences to people around the world. And, in the process, we can use our peer-reviewed research to help push the industry forward with better education and collaboration.
To date, we have successfully lobbied to legalize hydrocarbon (BHO/PHO) extraction in Canada, discovered an entirely new class of compounds in cannabis that are the true source of it’s skunky aroma, and partnered with six different universities in ongoing research studies.

We put our product quality above all else at Abstrax. Our products are better because we have the science to prove it.
Abstrax’s R&D is second-to-none in the cannabis industry. We are the company that discovered what makes weed smell like weed. Everyone knows that smell. If somebody is smoking a joint 100 yards away, you’re going to instantly recognize it.
People have tried to guess for decades, but we are the ones who made the breakthrough discovery. That wasn’t a university or an analytical lab - that was Abstrax. And we, alone, are able to utilize that peer-reviewed research to create the best and most authentic terpene profiles in the world.
The way we see it, our products are everything. We conduct peer-reviewed scientific research and perform the industry’s most detailed analytics (by far) in order to create the most faithful and flavorful terpene blends on the market. We believe that no matter how good someone else’s customer service or marketing is, it won’t matter if their terpenes are just like everybody else’s. We prioritize the consumer experience above all else and aim to deliver unique and iconic flavors that solidify your brand for life. Because your customers are going to be the ones who vote with their wallet and you need to give them the best possible experience.
We feel so strongly about our products that we encourage you to take the challenge and try our terps against our competitors. Seriously. How many companies tell you to buy their competitors’ products? Do a blind taste test and see for yourself why more people prefer Abstrax.
Abstrax is the only terpene manufacturer licensed in the United States to study, extract, and formulate botanical terpene profiles from cannabis analyzed completely in-house. Other terpene companies are relying on third-party labs to perform analytics with questionable and varying quality. We work directly with the best cultivators (Jack Herer, Sherbinskis, JoshD, etc) to map their cannabis at its peak freshness completely in-house. We're not selling knockoffs based on guesswork or some cheap imitation.
We are the only terpene company in the world with a GCxGC (pronounced GC cross GC.) This is proprietary technology that allows us to test for well over 400 compounds found in cannabis. Other labs test for, on average, around 30-40 compounds. To put it another way, our analytical capabilities are at least 10x greater. It’s like using an electron microscope versus a magnifying glass. Other terpene companies might as well be formulating in the dark.
Every single one of Abstrax’s products, from our Native Series to Cloudburst, is formulated entirely in-house. We’re not buying off-the-shelf flavor solutions like some of our competitors. We’re creating each of our products from scratch. Every. Single. Time.
That means that every strain and every flavor is reverse-engineered by our chemists to create completely unique and accurate flavor profiles that you’re not going to find anywhere else. This is the Abstrax advantage.
We create products not with our customers in mind, but with your customers at the forefront. If consumers aren’t thrilled with the experience of your products then we go out of business. It’s that simple.So we offer several different product collections to fit the wants and desires of every consumer niche. It doesn’t matter if they’re the headiest stoner, the secret smoker, the soccer mom, or the retired couple - we have terpenes to fit everybody.No matter whether you're already a huge multi-state operator or just somebody looking to make their mark in the cannabis industry, Abstrax has got you covered.

We start by rigorously sourcing our raw material with flavor and aroma quality in mind. We approach our terpene isolates a bit differently than our competitors. Instead of getting hung up on percentages and purity, we source and refine our isolated terpenes by how they smell and how they taste while still satisfying every regulatory and safety threshold.
We’re going to assume that, if you’re reading this, you’re likely a product manufacturer or somebody who cares about the experience of their consumers. You’re probably not purchasing isolated terpenes for the sake of calibrating extremely expensive scientific equipment. So what truly matters is how these terps are perceived from a finished-product standpoint. It’s all about the flavor, aroma, and experience.

That means that every strain and every flavor is reverse-engineered by our chemists to create completely unique and accurate flavor profiles that you’re not going to find anywhere else. This allows us to craft products that are incredibly faithful to their source material.
