“In everything we do, from our products, to our staff, to our drive for education, we are committed to quality. Quality, it’s just who we are”
Here at Black Fin Extracts we aim to do one thing: bring the Cannabis Community the finest extracts possible. We started in the early days of this industry, and have poured our hearts and souls into our craft. We pride ourselves on never disappointing our customers, and in bringing them the best the West Coast has to offer.
We at Black Fin Extracts want our customers to get the tastiest, freshest, purest dabs possible. It’s why we only source flower from craft growers that know what they are doing, and our facility uses only the finest lab equipment available. We even go so far as to make our solvent in-house so we can guarantee it’s free from impurities.
CECO produces the safest, purest, tastiest dabs, with a full flavour spectrum and terpene profile!
Since October 17th, 2018, legal cannabis has been the talk of the town. Despite its growing popularity, though, the world of legal weed is still uncharted territory. From growers to producers, consumers to politicians, all are both excited and frustrated about Bill C-45. The new licensing process is not as simple as filing a little paperwork. Nor should it be. In fact, it’s quite a challenge that has many hoops to jump through. But the Black Fin team never backs down from a challenge, and the legalization process is no different!
Black Fin Extracts is currently in the submission process of the Federal Licensing Application stage and is seeking to raise future operating capital.

Here at Black Fin we have been hard at working developing the Cryogenic-Ethanol Extraction (CECO) method to bring you the best way to get a flavorful, high percentage THC product. And we’ve had much success. We’ve been able to make some of the tastiest extracts around using a completely legal, organic, and safe method.
Cryogenic Ethanol Cannabis Oil, or CECO for short (and easier), is the newest trend to be taking the stage in the Cannabis community. And of course, we at Black Fin are always on the front line bringing you the future. When a new product comes to light, the first thing everyone asks is “what is Cryo-Ethanol Cannabis Oil anyways?”
The “C” in CECO cryogenic means cold, super cold. Around -70C type cold. And the entire process has to be done at these extreme low temperatures, it’s basically like working at the North Pole without getting to work inside Santa’s workshop. The “E” in CECO is referring to the solvent that is used to extract the THC from the Cannabis. At Black Fin we make our own in-house 100% ethanol, so you know that the CECO coming from us is 100% natural, organic, and controlled by us.
We take the Cannabis that we receive from local Vancouver Island federally licensed craft growers and “rinse” it in in a series of complex tubes and reactors with our solvent to extract all the goodness from the plant (THC, cannabinoids, terpenes) and none of the badness (water, chlorophyll, carbon). Then, using state of the art high grade ovens, and cold purge vacuums, we remove the solvent, leaving us with a concentrate that we can now use to make shatter, budder, THCa diamonds, or…who knows what else we will discover!
The thing is we haven’t gone and reinvented the wheel; we saw something that wouldn’t “fit” under the new regulations, so rather than starting from scratch we found a way to redesign an already existing process. We took your favorite cannabis extracts, changed one key ingredient, and the outcome is a new legal, organic way to produce all the concentrates you’ve known and loved. And the best part of all of this, the experience stays the same, you are still left with terpy, flavorful high quality dabs.
This last week has been a roller coaster of emotions for us at Lone Tree Concentrates.
We’ve been trying to think of the best way to break into the legal Cannabis world while still maintaining the heart and soul of the Craft Cannabis community. Our dedication to bringing our customers top shelf, AAA quality product hasn’t changed, and with the reports of the LPs making a mess of the Cannabis world, we knew that we needed to show them how it’s done by getting in the game and knocking it out of the park. That’s why are saying goodbye to the Lone Tree brand and bringing you a new, class act extracts company. Same product, same quality, new brand. And in the legal world nonetheless.
We want to say thank you to those of you who have been supporting us from the get go and have been the lifeline of this company, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. We’re sorry to leave you like this, however what is coming is going to be a game changer. We promise. We know that you want to know first hand when this new brand is coming, and we will definitely keep you in the loop. We will still be sending out our newsletters so be sure to sign up so you hear first about when we are up and running and we will still be spreading Cannabis education through our Cannaparty instagram account. We aren’t falling off the face of the earth, we’re just taking December to relax, enjoy the holidays and get ready to blow 2019 out of the water.
If you thought we were killing it in 2018 you won’t want to miss what is coming.
As the sky starts to get darker, the days start to get colder and the trees turn from green to red to brown, it seems as though curling up under a blanket on the couch with a nice hot drink is at the top of everyone’s todo list. And we don’t blame you — the season to get cozy has arrived! Something about Fall turning to Winter reminds us of switching on the fireplace, hopping on the couch and enjoying hot apple cider while watching a holiday movie and getting excited for Christmas. So we thought why not make some delicious homemade apple cider with an added spice of Kayabliss Tincture and get REAL cozy this Fall. Besides, it’s not like apple cider is a hard recipe, and who doesn’t want their house to be engulfed in the smell of cinnamon, sugar and apple?
What you’ll need
10 apples, quartered (you can leave the peels on or you can peel them, it’s up to you on that)
¾ Cups of sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground allspice
6 teaspoons of Kayabliss CBD Tincture (or more, depending on your preference)
Cinnamon Sticks for garnish (optional)
What to do
Place apples in a large pot and add enough water to cover the apple by at least 2 inches.
Stir in sugar, cinnamon, and allspice.
Bring to a boil and leave uncovered boiling for 1 hour. Don’t stray too far from the kitchen while this is boiling! You don’t want it to over boil and leave a mess. This would be a good time to spark up a joint or hit the bong while you wait.
Cover the pot and reduce the heat to a simmer, leave for 2 hours.
If you want you can strain the apple mixture through a fine mesh sieve or use a cheesecloth, or you can add in the tincture, serve hot and enjoy!
If you do choose to strain the mixture add the tincture in after you have done so.
Garnish with a cinnamon stick — mostly for presentation, but also adds an extra cinnamon kick to your cup.
You can also wait and add in the tincture to each person’s individual cup if there are guests that want plain apple cider, or if your guests want to add more to their own they can as well. The great thing about this recipe is because you are adding in a tincture you can make this specific to the company you have!
For those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) normal day-to-day activities can be a challenge.
The looming thought that something terrible is about to happen can make it hard to interact with people or get through simple tasks, such as going to the grocery store. The constant re-experience of the trauma that caused the PTSD can mean avoiding things that remind patients of the event. For example someone who was in a near death car accident may never drive again, or even want to be a passenger in a car. The current treatments for patients suffering from PTSD are, at the moment, psychotherapy, anti-depressant medications, or a combination of both. There is currently no specialized effective medication for PTSD. Fortunately, there is now more research going into medical marijuana giving patients another avenue to try to alleviate their symptoms with CBD. In this post we will discuss what PTSD is, who is affected by it and how new research is showing that CBD may be a natural and effective treatment for those who are suffering.
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a reality for many people who have gone through traumatic life events that have involved things such as death, the threat of death or serious injury. These incidents can include things such as natural disasters, accidents, war or conflicts, and sexual violence. Recently there have been rising reports of domestic violence on women and children linked to causing PTSD, however the most common occurrence today is seen in our veterans. Those who suffer from PTSD report having vivid nightmares of the event, flashbacks or thoughts of the event that come from nowhere, finding themselves nervous and on edge at all times, and experiencing rapid changes in thoughts and moods. Because of these changes in behaviors and moods as well as the re-occurring thoughts of trauma, many PTSD victims are, unfortunately, a risk for self-harm. There is no sure reason for why PTSD occurs in some people and not in others, however there is a link in all patients suffering from PTSD that involves the endocanabanoid system.
The endocanabanoid system (ECS) is basically the therapeutic hotspot for the body. It is made up of two types of receptors, CB-1 and CB-2 and has recently been implicated in a growing number of physiological functions. The CB-1 receptors mediate biological functions such as emotional learning, stress adaptation and fear extinction. The ECS is the main molecular target of the natural anandamine, which some say is like the bodies “inner cannabis.” This is the substance found in the body that helps humans to “cope” with emotional turmoil. The anandamine relives the effects of any stressful situation by temporarily putting you in a state of bliss so that you can work out your situation more effectively. Recently it has been noted that anandamine tests much lower in patients who are suffering from PTSD and this endocanabanoid deficiency plays a part in the inability to cope with those stressful and anxious situations. Research has shown that cannabis has the ability to trigger the same receptors that are activated by anadamine and to give those who are suffering from PTSD the same blissful state to help them cope with their situation. From this research we can safely assume that the use of cannabis may be considered as a treatment for patients suffering from PTSD. But where does the CBD come into all of this?
Good question, CBD is the non-psychoactive part of the cannabis plant that also helps to aid in reducing paranoia and anxiety. Because CBD does not have any kind of psychoactive action it can be used as an anti-high approach to treating PTSD. As mentioned above, people suffering from PTSD already feel anxious and on edge, so to add in a substance such as THC (The High Causer) it could potentially make the symptoms worse. CBD has the ability to act as a key to help close the receptors that are being affected by a lack of anadamine and to help alleviate some of the symptoms that PTSD patients suffer from. Smoking strains that are high in CBD has been proven to calm the brain and help cope with the fear as well as help to aid in temporarily “forgetting” about the events that led to PTSD.
Recent studies have shown that the pharmaceuticals prescribed to PTSD patients can have an adverse effect, especially on those patients who have been to war. Veterans are amongst the highest number of people who suffer from PTSD and with no real effective medication they are left to try to cope with the constant reliving of traumatic events. Thankfully the cannabis community is working with a number of local Legions to aid some of their members in a more natural and effective way to alleviate many of the symptoms of PTSD. For those who would like to avoid smoking, there is also a variety of other CBD products that you can try to help you with your endocanabanoid deficiency and improve your mood while curbing some of the PTSD symptoms.

CANNAPARTY – Cannabis in the comfort of your home
The Cannabis Community can be daunting to those trying to break into it, and even for some who have been in it for a while, the amount of information about all these new strains, and concentrates and laws can be a bit much. That’s why we created Cannaparty, a fun and informal way for you and your friends to learn all about the health benefits and the legal way to consume cannabis – without having to leave your home. Think of it like a Tupperware party, except for marijuana. Our educated Cannagirls will come to your space, set up our educational display and answer all your pressing cannabis questions. We want to provide a safe environment for you and your friends to educate yourself on the health benefits of THC and CBD.
