Yes, we control the entire manufacturing process on site in order to ensure quality, consistency and consumer safety.
We engage in triple (3x) testing on each batch of products we produce, which means we test the flower, then the extracted concentrate, and finally the finished infused edible product. Our testing lab is SC Labs located in Santa Cruz, California.
At this time Altai products are only available at local dispensaries in California.

We feel the best way to legalize marijuana is through conversation. We encourage you to really listen to those who are opposed without being combative. In our experience, most people who oppose marijuana legalization harbor unfounded fears and prejudices about the effects of marijuana and the kind of people that use marijuana. Once you identify the fears and prejudices, offer interesting facts and personal experiences that might cause them to give their fears and prejudices second consideration. And remember, you can’t change someone’s mind. You can only give them tools to change their own mind!
Sativa and Indica are species of the cannabis plant that each offer unique medicinal properties. Sativa typically provides users with a surge of creativity and playful energy and is frequently described as ’cerebral’ or creative, whereas Indica typically provides users with a very relaxing body high useful to treat general anxiety, body pain, and sleeping disorders. While both Sativas and Indicas bear psychoactive ingredients such as THC, CBD, CBN and a whole host of terpenes, the ratio of those compounds to each other renders the variety of psychoactive effects offer by the cannabis plant.
The best advice is to go Low and Slow. If you are new to using cannabis products, we suggest you start with no higher than a 10mg dose and wait no less than 120 minutes before consuming more. It is not uncommon that the effects of cannabis are delayed for up to 120 minutes and overdosing virtually always occurs when a user feels “nothing” after waiting a little while, and then decides to take more. We have all done it, and its just plain uncomfortable. While overdosing is non-lethal or physically harmful, it can be quite psychoactive and scary for novice users so please take our brotherly and sisterly advice and go slow.
Our goal is to make dosing a straightforward decision with no math involved. As such, while each of product clearly identifies how many THC milligrams are inside, we also identify exactly how many THC milligrams are found within each piece contained in the package.
This varies depending on the product. Most of our products are offered in either 10mg and 25mg individual pieces. Read the label carefully when selecting.
Most of our products have a 6 month shelf-life, however, refrigeration can great extend the shelf life of our products and retard the deterioration of the psychoactive ingredients.
