About Us

BAS Research is the leading cannabis research and manufacturing company in California. It is the first company to be issued a permit in California for this purpose and enjoys widespread municipal support. The company was founded by veterans of the cannabis, pharmaceutical and technology industries.

BAS Research’s mission is to enhance society and heal the world by manufacturing safe cannabis products, that we can trust to give to our families and clients’ patients. BAS Research manufactures cannabis products of the highest quality and integrity using superior innovation and continuous improvement in all aspects of the business and to remain socially responsible while doing so. Our goal is to replace the negative social stigma associated with cannabis with an all-natural, bio-nutraceutical approach. With a focus on standardized dosing, products manufactured at BAS provide all of the potential medicinal benefits of cannabis, without the risks associated with the variations in the current marketplace.

Dr. Bao Le, Co-Founder & CEO

Dr. Le’s passion for starting BAS is a personal endeavor. After learning that his youngest son Andrew is autistic, Dr. Le committed his life to finding safe and holistic alternative treatment for Andrew and children like him. He learned about CBD’s effectiveness on autistic symptoms and other medical conditions and made it his crusade to improve the industry. Dr. Le’s personal mission is to refine and improve the processes of which cannabis-related medicine is derived and to change the narrative of the industry to remove the public stigma of cannabis. He is focused on building a system that truly focuses on patient first, sound medicine and rigorous science.

Ernie Arreola, Co-Founder & CCO

Ernie has over 10 years of experience in operations, sales and distribution of cannabis products. Ernie has always been a strong advocate for patient rights, having witnessed subpar products in the marketplace that he deemed harmful for patients. It is with this passion that Ernie and Dr. Le started BAS Research.

Robert Sindelar, CSO

Robert has a technical background and advanced degree in synthetic organic chemistry. While investigating medicinal compounds in the pharmaceutical arena, he observed that society could greatly benefit from an alternative approach to medicine and health. Robert left the pharmaceutical track and transitioned into ethnobotanical studies of South American medicinal plants. He now applies rigorous methods of modern science to the knowledge and wisdom of traditional plant medicines to spearhead the development of cannabis-based formulations at BAS.

We apply advanced analytical methods and rigorous laboratory standards to produce highly characterized cannabis extracts of great quality and consistency. Our industry leading testing protocols and standard laboratory practices ensure the safety of our extracts from plant to product. By actively participating in raising the standards within the cannabis industry, we proudly take these measures to protect the safety of our clients’ products and the health of our clients’ patients.

Winterized Amber Oil

Our cannabinoid-rich CO2 extracts are refined into a translucent amber colored oil of medium viscosity and high potency through a careful removal of fats, lipids, and waxes

These oils have a viscosity suitable for vape technologies and can be fully decarboxylated upon request for maximum activation of cannabinoids. No matter the application, our formulation department tailors our winterized amber oil to suit your product needs. Strain-specific, terpene-enriched variations are available. This oil is also available as THC or CBD-dominant.

Distilled Clear Oil

By harnessing the molecular properties of the cannabinoids, we further purify our oils through various methods of distillation, producing our highest potency product.

This transparent and lightly golden concentrate is decarboxylated and has versatility in a variety of product applications. It can be used directly as a plain distillate or be reintroduced to its terpenes for the full effect of the cannabis entourage. Available as THC or CBD-dominant varieties.


Looking for further personalization of our oil products? Please inquire about a formulation consultation for assistance in oil customization and product development.

Lab Tested

The safety and purity of the products produced by BAS Research are independently verified by third party testing centers, ensuring that our products are free of harmful solvents, microbes, and pesticides.
