TetraLabs was founded in 2008 as a part-time research project to develop an ultra-pure medical-cannabis concentrate containing only natural cannabinoids. Those involved never intended the project to become a business. But after successfully making small amounts of ultra-pure cannabinoids, patients found out about them and asked for more. It was invigorating to hear such a positive response, so they began working full-time on the project. Subsequently, they established the TetraLabs Collective, and focused on meeting patient requests for safe, effective, ultra-pure medical cannabis products.
