Vendor Spotlight: Evolab
Evolab products available March 25th, 2016 at The Green Stop!Founded by Alex Cahoj in 2009, Evolab uses only pure CO2 in the production of their cannabis extracts. Product development is an integral part of their existence. After a lot of research, they began incorporating chromatography into their process. What is chromatography? Basically, it’s the separation of a mixture by passing it in a solution through a medium in which the components move at different rates. Evolab has partnered with two of the most famous chromatographers in the world, at a company called PIC-SFC. Together, they created a new machine that performs fluid extractions using cold CO2. This machine, paired with a chromatography machine, further refines and tests the results, which has allowed them to produce some of the purest and most precisely manufactured cannabis extracts ever made! Evolab’s newly automated and computer-controlled process allows them to extract the best terpenes and cannabinoids for their products.
At the center of Evolab’s expanding technologies are their product lines Natural, Chroma, and Alchemy.
Natural: True to the strain
Evolab runs small batch extractions with single strains. Their Natural product therefore maintains the flavor and therapeutic attributes of each particular strain so you get the full plant Entourage Effect. This oil is 100% pure, with the integrity of the strain 100% preserved.
Chroma: Purely potent
Chroma is nearly 100% cannabinoids. A thick, clear, amber oil, Chroma is for the cannabis connoisseur obsessed with quality and potency.
Alchemy: Cannabis at it’s finest
The Alchemy product is a customized extraction experience. Drawing from years of customer feedback and personal expertise, our team of cannabis sommeliers has crafted signature cannabis oils. Alchemy blends cannabis derived terpenes, THC, and CBDs into an expression of art and science.

Capitalizing on their exceptionally clean extracts, Evolab has also designed two topical products infused with therapeutic cannabis. The first product Angel Salve, took first place in High Time’s 2015 Cannabis Cup for Best Topical. Angel Salve was compounded for pain relief and recovery from minor aches and pains. A perfect compliment for the hiking trails and bike paths of Colorado.
