Who is ECF for? 

Extraction Lab Staff

There are many multi-licensed and vertically integrated cannabis companies that cultivate their own flower to use for their own extractions, along with extraction companies that purchase flower and trim from growers. While each facility may have its own methods, ECF provides a foundation that ensures employees understand the fundamentals of extraction.

Dispensary Staff

Aside from flower, nearly every cannabis product sold in a dispensary derives from a cannabis extract—from hash and shatter, to edibles and suppositories, to vape pens and lotions. It’s important for dispensary staff to understand the fundamentals of extraction and concentrates so they can answer customer questions and address concerns.

Medical Professionals

For those who can legally prescribe cannabis to patients, understanding extraction methods, the types of products they make, and the potency of cannabinoids and terpenes in these will help them recommend the best medicinal products for their patients.

Legalization learners

More than 30 states have legal marijuana programs and plenty of others are working on legislation. With the need for regulation comes the need for education, particularly since the bulk of products sold in dispensaries derive from cannabis concentrates. If you work in law enforcement, government, and law, or in the cannabis industry, you’ll want to understand what is involved in extracting cannabis to help ensure the safety of consumers.

Educated Consumers

Many consumers want to better understand cannabis extracts so they know what they’re vaping or ingesting is safe. Some are curious to explore the different effects of diverse preparations, while others want the details of extraction processes. Either way, ECF will boost your knowledge.


Many states allow caregivers to purchase marijuana products and even grow plants for medical patients. As a caregiver, you want to have the best knowledge, tools, and resources to ensure your patients are as comfortable as possible.
