We never settle for subpar quality and constantly seek new ways to improve our products. We set the industry standard for extract consistency, purity, and flavor through our proprietary helium and CO2 extraction process. Northern Standard cannabis oils are extracted from single strain, single-batch organically grown cannabis, and contain only native terpenes. Unlike most competing brands of cannabis oil on the market today, we use no toxic solvents, foreign terpenes, synthetic flavorings, propylene glycol or other additives of any kind in our production process.
Northern Standard oils contain only cannabinoids and terpenes found in the source cannabis plant, giving you an all-natural experience with flavor and effect like no other. Our gourmet edibles are developed and produced by a world-class chocolatier and confectioner, using only the highest quality ingredients. From start to finish, quality is our goal and we are confident that Northern Standard products are the ones you will return to time and time again.
