why xtra?

 

 Xtra Laboratories was founded in 2016 by three cannabis professionals who met while managing a top tier medical dispensary in Arizona. We quickly created a name as a quality focused group. While building and managing the dispensary, the focus was to be the first medical dispensary that had a strict intake process for all products. Third party test results were required and every batch of flower was inspected by microscope before purchase. These steps helped guarantee we were carrying safe and effective medicine for our patient base. Our group saw the importance of setting standards in an uncontrolled market. This focus was then carried over when Xtra Laboratories was started. As a dispensary management team we helped brands and cultivators build better standards and produce higher quality products. After listening to thousands of patient consultations, we had unique insight into what exactly the market was missing. Our diverse background between extraction, cultivation, and product development formed a powerful group with complimenting abilities. The first extractions and product creations yielded results we knew people were in dire need of. Our previous industry experience and contacts gave many groups the confidence to quickly start using our products. After providing many brand consultations with success, we no longer had the time to manage dispensaries and continue to provide the industry with the help we knew it needed. Xtra Laboratories went into full production with a lab and showroom in Tempe, AZ.

 

Xtra Labs Industry Focus  

The vape segment of the industry was where we focused due to the industry suffering from poor hardware choices, ineffective product formulations, and bad ingredients. These issues inspired the minds at Xtra Laboratories to start producing botanical terpene blends that were all natural and high purity.  Recreating the cannabis flower's smell and flavor profile through an in-house genetic mapping process and unique extraction methods, we effectively produce the best terpene blends available on the market. Only the highest quality, highest purity terpene isolates available are sourced from GMP facilities.
In 2018 we launched our flagship line of full spectrum cannabis terpene infused blends. Each blend has been carefully recreated using all natural terpene isolates and cannabis hemp terpenes. These new to market blends have breathed new life into stagnated brands that were losing market share. 

Xtra Laboratories continues to carve new paths and create fresh products the industry has not seen.  Our newest fusion line of strain and fruit flavor pairings show our companies industry intuition. Our competition is constantly mimicking our products long after ours have been available.  Xtra will continue to be the industry's terpene leader for innovation.  

Xtra Laboratories’ technical abilities and advancements also have branched into other sectors of the market beyond terpenes, flavors and vape products.  In 2017, Fuego CBD was launched as our in house CBD brand. We offer a wide range of products from salves, vapes, and tinctures, to water soluble cbd for internal and external applications.  Our CBD emulsifications are all done with cavitation to ensure the smallest particle size is guaranteed, to maximize the efficiency of absorption. We believe it's not how much CBD is in the product but what can actually be absorbed.  Our nano water soluble CBD was created to ensure a natural safe way to efficiently take CBD with immediate results. We believe this product is the future of CBD and shows the insight and technical abilities of our lab team.
