FLOWER

Jarred Flower

Packaged cannabis buds are still the primary product made in the cannabis market today.  The quality of all cannabis products is primarily dependent of the quality of cannabis used, but in packaged flower, quality is center stage.  However, exotic strains and attractive packaging are key to standing out from a very crowded sector of our industry.

Jars have long been the preferred form of storage for cannabis enthusiasts for years.  With proper seals, a jar can keep cannabis fresh for a long time, and different colored jars allow for UV protection. 

At OEC, has years of experience in jarring flower,we source multiple jars from different manufacturers.

Bagged Flower

Packaged cannabis buds are still the primary product made in the cannabis market today.  The quality of all cannabis products is primarily dependent of the quality of cannabis used, but in packaged flower, quality is center stage.  However, exotic strains and attractive packaging are key to standing out from a very crowded sector of our industry.

While Jared Flower has traditionally been associated with quality cannabis, the advent of UV-printed Mylar Bags has taken the industry by storm!  Customization, materials and colors available to mylar bags allow skilled designers to create Mylar Bags with eye-catching shelf appeal.  While the bags may seem low-budget to some, they provide a low cost packaging option that with good freshness preservation and all-over branding. 

Smalls and Pre Ground

Small buds, also known as budlets, are usually separated from the larger buds of a plant by cultivators when they harvest their cannabis.  These smaller buds have the same quality, flavor and near the potency of their larger, more mature siblings with a lower price point.

Preground herb is the lowest-cost cannabis available in dispensaries, and a godsend for those who have been riding the waves of covid and inflation these past years.

At OEC, we using commercial grinders and years of experience with grinding herbs to craft a quality pre-ground product for your cannabis brand!

Prerolls

Joints

Pre-rolled Joints, also known as prerolls, are the quickest way for an end-user to start smoking.  Multiple paper types, shapes, sizes and filters are currently available. 

Prerolls require a specific grind and packing of cannabis to function well.  Poor quality prerolls are subject to inconsistent hits and uneven burning.  The greatest sin is over-ground herb or loose packing leading to a preroll dumping out its contents once lit.   At OEC, we take the design and assembly of prerolls quite seriously, as the aforementioned issues can be detrimental to a brand's reputation.

Infused Joints

An infused PreRoll is a preroll that contains both cannabis and concentrate, whether it be Bubble, Rosin, Kief, BHO or other consistencies.  These concentrates can be blended with the herb or coated onto the paper.

Adding concentrates to a preroll ups the potency and flavor. Since the heat coming from the cherry of a joint can actually vaporize the contents it passes along the way, dab-like effects can be felt from infused prerolls. 

At OEC, we are experimenting with many kinds of infused Pre rolls to ensure our white label clients and cohorts have access to the most popular formats available.  Since we also manufacturer Solventless Water Hash & Hash Rosins, we can provide complete sourcing for your infused prerolls!

HEMP BLUNTS & CIGARS

Hemp contains no nicotine and much lower concentrations of Polonium, the isotope that causes tobacco to exhaust radioactive particles.  Quite the opposite, as hemp is instead rich in CBD's, calming the mind as opposed to nicotine stimulating effects. 

Some OEC founders have been rolling blunts for 30 years, and we know the consistency of herb as well as the tightness of pack to create that familiar hit that blunt enthusiasts are accustomed to.  We work with multiple hemp blunt manufacturers to provide an array of hemp blunts, as well as hemp cigars!

CONSUMABLES

GUMMIES

Gummies have long prospered as the most prevalent cannabis edible in the market.  The ingredients are simple, flavor and color choices are endless, and molds can be used to create any shape!  Their fruity flavorings can tame the hashy flavors within, while the ability to withold added flavors can let exotic natural terpenes take center stage.

Formulating, producing and curing non-medicated gummies is already a complicated practice which OEC is well equipped for. 

Tinctures

Tinctures are a potent solution of cannabis concentrate, and the only consumable that the BCC allows to contain more than 100mg of THC.  These strong solutions provide powerful treatment of many ailments while adding no sugars or fats to the mix.  

Tincture formulation requires exacting recipes and processes that our Consumables subcommittee is currently experimenting with.  If your brand has an established tinctures that they are in search of a new manufacturer for, we will be happy to test and adapt your formula to our services.

Syrups

A very popular product in the past few years have been THC Syrups.  These potent concoctions fall under the Tincture category, allowing them to contain well over 100mg of THC.  Syrups can be added to drinks or dosed directly, and are a popular product in many demographics.

Syrup formulation requires an emulsification of concentrates with sweeteners and flavorings.  If not done correctly, the ingredients will separate over time, resulting in a sub par product.  At OEC, we use a top-of-the-line ultrasonic nano-emulsifier to create quality syrups.

CAPSULES

Capsules, like tinctures, are a calorie and carbohydrate free option of ingesting cannabis.  They appeal to consumers who are used to more conventional healthcare treatments, something that evades many other consumable products.

Due to the fact that capsules contain pure concentrate, their doses must be measured with the discern of a pharmacist, as minuscule error can result in undesired results.  Our robotic automated capsule filling machine ensures consistent production of your capsules under our white label service.
