Inside Compassionate Cultivation’s Austin-Area Headquarters
Take a quick, three minute tour of the most advanced medical cannabis processing facility in the state of Texas. Compassionate Cultivation’s Austin-area operation encompasses all aspects of modern medical cannabis processing including cultivation, extraction, testing, packaging, retail and direct-to-door delivery.
Compassionate Cultivation’s high-quality cannabis strains are grown from seed through harvest utilizing a strict nutrient management program, integrated pest management systems and horticultural techniques to ensure our plants receive the proper elements, nutrients and care for optimal growth. At our indoor cultivation facility, we adhere to strict sanitation guidelines and utilize high-tech controls and sensors to monitor the environment and conserve energy during the growth process. Our selected CBD-rich cultivars are processed into cannabis oil that contains less than 0.5 percent THC and at least 10 percent CBD in finished product, adhering to guidelines set out under the Compassionate Use Act.
We utilize a hydrocarbon-free, high-purity CO2 extraction process to extract pure plant oil from our feedstock. The process is finely tailored through manipulations in temperature and pressure to optimize the capture of components of interest, and performed in a certified, semi-automated, closed-loop system to facilitate the recapture of over 90 percent of the CO2 used. After extraction, a series of purification, distillation and chromatography steps are implemented, resulting in oil products with cannabinoid purities as high as 99 percent.
Advanced Laboratory Testing
Product transparency is a key component to providing the quality and consistency of our medicine. Our facility is outfitted with advanced lab equipment and utilizes state-of-the-art instrumentation and analytical methods to fully characterize each product and provide quality assurance to the patient. Heavy metals are present in our products, but at small amounts, parts per billion. We test our heavy metals to ensure they are well below the daily exposure limits outlined by the FDA.
Texas’ First Licensed Dispensary
Compassionate Cultivation’s Austin-area dispensary became the first licensed medical cannabis dispensary to open its doors in the state of Texas. Our patient-friendly dispensary, located at 12701 Lowden Lane in Manchaca, is open to the public, although the purchase of cannabis-based medicine is limited to registered patients and legal guardians. Compassionate Cultivation’s expert staff are equipped to answer any questions, as well as provide patient consultations, physician outreach resources and detailed information on our products and retail merchandise. Our high-quality medical cannabis products are available at our dispensary location and through our delivery service, which accommodates patients across the state.
