PHOENIX, Aug. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Copperstate Farms Management, LLC, a vertically integrated cannabis company based in Arizona, today announced the completion of a new hydrocarbon lab at its cultivation headquarters in Snowflake, Arizona. The design incorporates leading-edge cannabis technology and equipment, allowing the Company to expand its extraction capabilities and production methods.

Copperstate Farms completed the construction and received approval to operate in Spring 2021, adding 1000 square-feet of highly specialized lab space dedicated to the formulation of live resin products.

“Our primary focus was to increase our concentrate offerings and continue to deliver quality and consistency across our house concentrate brands and wholesale accounts,” stated Copperstate Farms co-founder and Managing Director Fife Symington. “We’ve invested in state-of-the-art equipment and world class talent to enhance our extraction processes and workflow.”

Director of Extraction at Copperstate Farms Zach Brown has overseen the installation of large-scale hydrocarbon extraction equipment that utilizes n-butane, n-propane, and blends of butane and propane to extract live resin concentrates from fresh frozen cannabis plants. These substantial extraction systems have prompted the Company to expand its highly trained lab personnel, adding four C1D1 technicians to ensure continuous extraction operations.

“The new hydrocarbon lab has allowed us to further support the increasing demands of an adult-use cannabis market. We’ve incorporated a THCA isolate or ‘diamond’ production method into our systems and developed new SKUs, including a live resin cartridge,” Brown explained.

The debut of the hydrocarbon lab is part of a larger cultivation growth strategy at Copperstate Farms which includes plans to double its production footprint to 80 acres of glass greenhouses. Beyond its cultivation facility, the company operates four Sol Flower dispensaries and is home to multiple product suites including Copperstate and Good Things Coming.
