As cannabis continues its march toward legalization, the sheer number of individuals creating marijuana products is expanding everyday. This deluge of manufacturers has brought about an unprecedented level of quality, never before seen in the modern-day world.
Consumers can opt for a low-level product designed strictly for the purposes of getting high, and on the opposite end of the paradigm exists a cannabis experience that is unparalleled. An experience designed for selective pot enthusiasts who know that marijuana can be so much more than a nice light buzz.
For those particular bud-lovers, enjoying the offerings of Zen Medical should be a necessity. These incredible inventors have created extracts that are so potent and so unique, not trying them would be a disservice to any cannabis enthusiast.
Herbal Dispatch interviewed one of the owners of the company to find out how they do what they do so well.How did the idea for Zen Medical come about and what would you say is the core description of the company?
Zen Medical uses state of the art technology and proprietary formulas to produce high quality cannabis extracts for medical and recreational use.
The idea for Zen came about 5 years ago when my friend and I were working out plans for our original cannabis company, which licensed different extraction procedures to LP’s (Licensed Producers).
We developed a number of different formulas and created Standard Operating Procedures for proprietary and non-proprietary formulas. We originally did not sell any of our extracts, but instead gave them to medical patients who we knew. It wasn’t until 3 years down the road that we created the Zen Medical Brand and began distributing our products for wholesale.
Our goal has always been to deliver the highest quality product on the market, no matter the cost to make or our profit. We focus on solvent-free extracts because they are the best for the human body, and have tried to make our products as affordable as we could while maintaining quality, so that consumers will want to make the switch to extracts that are better for them.
Zen Medical is known for top quality extract. Can you describe your process and why your product is superior?
The main reason Zen’s products are superior is experience, we have been working with CO2 extraction for 5+ years and are very careful with the input materials we use.
Our other products also go through rigorous testing to ensure that there are non-detectable levels of contaminants, and that the input material and our output material is the highest quality the consumer will be getting.
[My partner] has been doing extract production for 15 years. He originally got into it because his father was really sick and he was taking a lot of alcohol-based extraction. Alcohol stays in your system because it is fat soluble, so [his father] was building up a lot of that in his system. [My partner] focused on making a new form of solvent-free extract using just water to produce a phoenix tear-like [product.]
We are a very solvent-free driven company. One of our products, which is more for medical patients, is called Bio Tears, and that is a water-soluble extract. It’s a full plant spectrum product and it is bio-available, so it absorbs into your system a lot faster and then flushes out of your system.
How is Zen Medical able to create a water-soluble product?
It’s a proprietary formula, but it involves heat, pressure and water.
Zen Tanks are high quality Co2 oil packaged in disposable glass and stainless steel vape tanks that can be attached to any standard battery (510 threading). ?The recreational market loves this product for its high potency and great flavor❤? Our Co2 oil generally tests between 70-80% THC ??The flavor comes from including the cannabis terpenes in the oil. Co2 oil is a solvent free extract, meaning it is not made by dissolving THC in a solvent then purging the solvent out, like you do with "BHO" or "Shatter" @zenmedical?? #findyourzen #inthezengarden #solventfreefuture
What are Zen Medical’s most popular products and why?
Zen Tanks are our most popular product because we are able to provide the some of the most flavorful, and potent CO2 in cartridge form.
A lot of other competitors will water their CO2 down with MCT oil or PG, however, we provide uncut, absolute CO2 oil which is very viscous and potent. You can feel it in each toke. We also make sure that our pens have a delicious terpene profile, as we want our pens to be the most enjoyable strain specific pens on the market.
What inspires you about cannabis? From your unique perspective, what is so incredible about it?
I have been in the cannabis industry for 10+ years and my partner for over 15. I have wanted to “sell cannabis legally” since high school and I am happy that we have finally gotten to the point where it has become so accepted in society that it will be a reality in the near future.
Growing up in Vancouver, cannabis has always been something that has brought people together, and for me to be able to share that with people through my company is a very special thing.
Can you tell us about any products in development? What’s next for Zen Medical?
Zen Medical has just finished developing a pure CBD Zen Tank. It will have 420mg of CBD and 0mg of THC, perfect for people who want the relief of CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC.
We also have pure CBD Phoenix tears (250mg CBD), CBD/THC Phoenix tears (450mgTHC/225mg CBD) and (125mg THC, 225mg CBD).
Where is the cannabis industry going? What’s next?
As the Cannabis industry moves towards full legalization, I think it’s important not to forget where it came from. It was not an “industry” 10 years ago, it was a community.
In the community, producers cared about the quality of the products they were producing, the impact it had on the patients and the social impact their products could make. I would like to see that feeling of community stay in the industry, and I think that by keeping boutique growers, and micro-producers, we will be able to keep that feeling of community in the cannabis industry.
