BAS Research is his vision and his personal mission is to refine and improve the processes of which cannabis-related products are derived and to change the narrative of the industry to remove the public stigma of cannabis.

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.
