We believe in the medicinal benefits of cannabis and that’s why we want to make an impact on the world with products essential for people’s quality of life.

Production process

We undertake all our processes at Hacienda El Candil, a fully-integrated facility in Colombia with an ideal geographic location, scalable to two million square feet* and with the perfect conditions for production carried out in four key phases:

VEGETATIVE

Plant growth stage where we give 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness, ideal condition to optimize it's growth.

FLOWERING

We changed the photo-period to 12 light hours and 12 hour darkness. We also keep nutrition and water according with the requirements. At the end of this phase we get a strawberry flower.

POST HARVEST

We choose the best quality plants, making the separation of the inflorescences, then we take them to the extraction.

EXTRACTION

We use a process called bioherbolysis: an enzyme assisted extraction to obtain the derivatives of the plant. However, this methodology can change for post-processing purposes that requires the crude extract.

Cannabis Components

From the extraction process, we strive to obtain the concentration of CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahidrocannabinol), also known as 'Cannabinoids', components that have therapeutic properties, wich can be used in any post process that implies a product development.
