HIGH VOLTAGE EXTRACTS
We are a small group dedicated to providing you with pure, potent medicinal extracts of unparalleled aroma and flavour. Our concentrates are made from flower grown on Vancouver Island. A small group are responsible for extractions, packaging and distribution. We are involved in every step in the path to providing you with unique, high quality live resins, sauces and cartridges; all made from live, fresh flower.
Full Spectrum Extract (Sauce/FSE)
The ultimate goal when creating a concentrate is capturing the essence of the plant from which it was derived. Oftentimes, through the process of extraction, a lot of the valued properties of the plant are stripped away.
This leaves you with a relatively tasteless and flat product. You may notice this with extracts like shatters and waxes that are lacking in their flavour profile. Often containing high levels of cannabinoids (namely THC), in many cases over 70%. As we understand cannabinoids better, we are finding that it is a combination of all of them together (THC, CBD, CBN, CBG, Terpenes, Flavonoids…) that dictates the effect.
Translating the profile of bioactive compounds that a cannabis flower contains into an extract is what is achieved in a Sauce/FSE. This includes not only the same ratios of cannabinoids to terpenes and flavonoids, but also the complete suite of other lesser-known compounds while also removing unnecessary components (e.g. fats, lipids, etc.). Full-spectrum extracts remove these elements, leaving behind only what is desired. A full-spectrum extract is about preserving the natural ratios of compounds within cannabis while removing the impurities that can compromise the experience.
High Voltage Extracts
Terpenes give individual cannabis plants different scents and flavour profiles. We use high quality, FRESH plant material for all our extractions; preserving as many unique terpenes as possible.
More than 200 different terpenes have been identified in cannabis plants. Each terpene has its own medical and therapeutic uses as well physiological effects on the user. This means each strain of Sauce or Live Resin is distinct and the consumer can choose products based on their own medical or recreational needs.
