The Science of Cannabis Extraction
Peridot Labs is an Oakland-based manufacturing lab offering custom extraction, refinement and formulation services to the cannabis industry in the Bay Area and greater Northern California.
Peridot Labs produces custom medicinal-grade cannabis extracts for cultivators, marijuana-infused product manufactures and dispensaries that do not have the will, capacity or proper licensing to produce their own concentrates.
Utilizing industry-leading and novel techniques in a safe and controlled setting, we deliver the most consistent, high-quality cannabis extracts available on today's market. Our aim is to move the extraction process out of the hands of amateurs and into the controlled setting of a lab under the supervision of trained and experienced chemists.
We believe in the broad application of cannabis-based medicine.
Peridot Labs is a venture envisioned, conceptualized and founded by two close friends, both Midwesterners who migrated to California over ten years ago in pursuit of new opportunities outside of their respective homelands of Wisconsin and Indiana.
The lab is under the skilled direction of PR, who holds a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from UC-Berkeley and has years of experience working as a medicinal chemist with a large biopharmaceutical company. He also spent nearly a year at a cannabis extraction startup producing THC and CBD-rich oils for patients in need. His experience gives Peridot Labs a unique advantage in this budding sector of the cannabis industry.
TM comes from the startup world and has years of experience helping to build, launch and manage small businesses. He spent six years as media director for a leading online conference and event video company where he was a founding team member central to bringing the company online. He comes to Peridot Labs with a wealth of startup experience, the trained eye of a seasoned editor and a love for building new things and bringing ideas to life.
Our proprietary methods were developed by a Ph.D. chemist and produce unique, full-flavored extracts that are truly representative of the starting strain. We achieve this by employing low-toxicity liquid solvents in a closed-looped system to isolate, filter and refine full spectrum cannabis oil that is rich in terpenes and high in cannabinoids. We also add strain-specific, steam distilled cannabis terpenes back to all cartridge oil, which elevates the flavor and experience of each batch.
The liquid solvents we employ are all listed by the United States Pharmacopeia as Class 3, the safest category. Peridot Labs does not use CO2, ethanol or compressed flammable gases for extraction. And refinement isn’t accomplished through short path or wiped film distillation.
Our process is unique in this industry.

Our mission? Simple.
We strive to manufacture an ultra-refined, full spectrum cannabis extract that smells, tastes and feels like the cured cultivar we processed.
You grow it, we extract it. Whether it's whole plant, flower or trim, we can extract and process any raw material to meet your specific end-product needs.
Color, clarity, cannabinoids. Our proprietary refinement process creates beautiful, potent full spectrum extracts.
Know your dose. Customize your medicine for each delivery method (vaporizers, topicals, capsules & tinctures) to standardize dosage and improve pharmacokinetic properties.
Need it now? We source premium trim and flower to keep a steady supply of our cannabis oil in stock for marijuana-infused product manufacturers.
