Our Process

We make stripped clean, pure cannabinoids, elevated to their purest forms.

What ARE Clean Cannabinoids?

Clean, natural and pure cannabinoids are the foundation of it all. A non-psychoactive cannabinoid derived from some strains of hemp, CBD is just one of many botanical compounds – including other cannabinoids, terpenes, and even small amounts of THC – that work synergistically and interact beautifully with the human endocannabinoid system. And that’s no accident – we co-evolved this way, together over millennia.

USDA organically certified hemp from our home state of Vermont is meticulously processed through a range of extraction methods to preserve the full spectrum of constituents in the most beneficial combinations, specific to the products they’re intended for.

We make stripped clean, pure cannabinoids, elevated to their purest forms, and we have them third-party tested for purity and potency so you know what you’re getting is a cut above.


Upstate Elevator’s cannabinoid products are produced in an ultra-modern, tech-forward facility, including a custom designed R&D lab, with separate suites for ethanol extraction, CO2 extraction, mechanical hashing, packaging, and product formulation.

Man harvesting CBD

Why does extraction matter?

We use several extraction and processing methods to create the optimal profile of constituents for each of our products.

Cold organic ethanol extraction utilizes a proprietary, closed-loop ultra-cold extraction methodology. Maintaining cryogenic temperature through the entire extraction process preserves the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids within the plant while leaving behind unwanted lipids, waxes and plant sugars. Non-GMO, food grade, organically certified ethanol is used. The result is a 100% USDA certified organic CBD Oil that is exceedingly pure. It is full spectrum oil that is rich in CBD and minor cannabinoids.

Isolate is a pure crystalline extraction of hemp compounds. It is free of all other cannabinoids including THC, as well as the other plant constituents that are present in our full spectrum extractions. This purified isolate  has no odor or flavor, making it perfect for edibles and beverages. Choosing isolate products is a sure way to know exactly what you’re getting – and not getting – for people who wish to limit their exposure to THC and other hemp compounds.

Nano-encapsulation is a novel processing method that mechanically compacts the hemp compound into very small (<100 nanometer) particles. By reducing the size of the particles, we increase the total surface area of CBD in contact with tissue. The microscopic size and water solubility of our nano formulations combine to enhance bioavailability and expedite the dispersion of cannabinoids into the bloodstream.

Live rosin is the “Rolls Royce” of cannabis concentrates. This low tech, high touch solventless extraction method preserves all the cannabinoids and terpenes in the same ratios that exist naturally within the plant. The trichomes are then extracted from the plant material using only reverse osmosis ice, water and loving agitation. From there the trichome heads are caught by fine screens and collected as hash. The hash is freeze dried and then pressed low and slow into live rosin on a rosin press. The result is a full spectrum, artisanal live rosin that delivers the full unadulterated essence of the cannabis flower.
