8 Hour Class

This live in-person class is held in our licensed production facility in Las Vegas, NV. For those who wish to extend their knowledge beyond the initial extraction process, we offer an introductory class on the post-processing distillation procedure. Here is where you will learn how to take already extracted crude oil, and purify it down to its cannabinoids commonly referred to as “distillate”. You will be shown how to use the distillate to formulate and mix vape oil, fill vape pen cartridges, and other infused products.
