Company Background

Cannabistry Labs is a three-year old company that provides out-sourced product development; scientific research; regulatory compliance; manufacturing process engineering; quality assurance programs; branding and market activation to state-licensed growers and producers of medical marijuana. Its mission is to maximize the value of cannabis for both patients and operators.

We do this by applying best practices from the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries with the goal of delivering innovative, consistent cannabis products with reliable therapeutic benefits.

Our business model is to engage state-sanctioned growers and processors through licensing our intellectual property. We provide all of the preparation, training, technical specifications and quality control needed for the production, marketing and branding of our products.

Current Operations

We have a new state-of-the-art R&D facility in Denver, CO and corporate headquarters in Illinois.

We have successfully developed and launched our first cannabis-infused product line and brand with our licensed partner in Colorado. We have aggressive plans to expand to other legal cannabis states.

Cannabistry Labs is developing a robust commercialization pipeline of new products through highly collaborative cross-functional teams from R&D, Science & Technology, Innovation, Scientific and Regulatory Affairs, Commercialization and Market Activation. A modified Stage Gate® process is used to drive the entire product life cycle, from creation to commercialization.
