BEYOND BUDS NEXT GENERATION, COMPANY SPOTLIGHT SPONSOR
Eden Labs founded in Ohio in 1994, and it’s currently headquartered in Seattle, Washington, but it has deep roots in California’s medical cannabis movement: After the passage of Proposition 215 in 1996, the company’s signature Coldfinger™ ethanol extraction system became the first commercial-size cannabis extractor installed in a San Francisco dispensary.
Eden Labs founder, Fritz Chess, was a science journalist with an abiding interest in botanical medicine. His research into herbal medicine created and used by remote indigenous peoples sparked a curiosity about extracting botanical remedies using distillation and other contemporary technologies. That curiosity transformed into dedication when producing a system for extracting healthy, natural products became his personal mission.
The Coldfinger™ system started as a radical redesign of the century old soxhlet extractor, and during this same R&D period Fritz engineered and built the first supercritical co2 system optimized for heavy resinous oils — a revolutionary development in supercritical fluid extraction. The system was affordable and exceedingly easy to operate, allowing small businesses to access technology that was previously out of their reach.
Eden Lab’s CEO, AC Braddock, joined the company in 2009; within three years, Eden was recognized by Inc.com as one of the “Top 10 Fastest Growing Women-Led Companies in Seattle.” Braddock’s leadership is guided by an unwavering belief in whole plant medical applications and a commitment to an ethical, holistic approach to business. Her keen eye for new trends, product placement, business strategy and political involvement contribute to a vibrant corporate culture that’s making waves nationally.
The force that animates Eden Labs is the same one that inspired its founding — curiosity. Eden’s R&D team is constantly pushing the limits of innovation and chasing the bleeding edge of extraction technology. By engineering advanced systems that reliably produce high-grade products, Eden has distinguished itself as an industry leader and created a brand known for quality and customer success.
Thanks to that success, the demand for large, industrial-grade extraction systems has grown organically. Eden now offers supercritical fluid extraction units up to 6000L’s and 500 gallons for ethanol in industries including nutraceuticals, flavorings, fragrances, Bio-fuels, herbal medicines and more.
But Eden Labs is more than just a technology and market leader in the world of botanical extraction tech, it’s a legit “OG” of Cannabis extraction; whether you’re chasing a single molecule or a blend of botanical essences, few companies offer the broad, product-specific knowledge and technological expertise needed to achieve your extraction goals.
