The Northern Standard Story
Consistent premium quality. Native terpenes. Gourmet edibles. That’s the Northern Standard.
We never settle for subpar quality and constantly seek new ways to improve our products. We set the industry standard for extract consistency, purity, and flavor through our proprietary helium and CO2 extraction process. Northern Standard cannabis oils are extracted from single strain, single-batch organically grown cannabis, and contain only native terpenes. Unlike most competing brands of cannabis oil on the market today, we use no toxic solvents, foreign terpenes, synthetic flavorings, propylene glycol or other additives of any kind in our production process.
Northern Standard oils contain only cannabinoids and terpenes found in the source cannabis plant, giving you an all-natural experience with flavor and effect like no other. Our gourmet edibles are developed and produced by a world-class chocolatier and confectioner, using only the highest quality ingredients. From start to finish, quality is our goal and we are confident that Northern Standard products are the ones you will return to time and time again.
PERFECTLY BALANCED, A MASTERPIECE OF FLAVOR & EFFECT.
Terpenes are the pungent oils that give cannabis varietals their unique flavors and aromas. More than 100 different terpenes have been found in the cannabis plant and each varietal contains a unique blend.
Like a fine wine, cannabis produces an incredibly complex flavor profile when vaped. By carefully concentrating the plant’s natural cannabinoids and native terpenes we give you an experience like no other. Both seasoned connoisseurs and cannabis-newcomers will appreciate our perfectly balanced concentrates.
Many of our competitors use extraction methods that destroy naturally occurring terpenes and the flavor is often unpleasant or covered up by an added artificial flavoring, or cheap non-cannbis terpenes that are intended for use in industrial cleaners. At Northern Standard you won’t find synthetic-flavored concentrates. Instead of destroying or covering up the flavor profile of your favorite cannabis strain, our goal is to preserve it.
Our extracts are perfectly balanced, a masterpiece of natural flavor and effect.

Why native cannabis terpenes?
There are hundreds of unidentified terpene varieties present in every strain of cannabis plant that are not detected in terpene profile tests. Cannabis testing facilities will normally test for 32 or fewer terpenes, leaving hundreds undetected.
Industrial terpene suppliers use terpenes purchased in plastic jugs (sometimes referred to as ‘botanical terpenes’, intended for use as industrial solvents) to formulate “strains” based on the most prominent terpenes revealed in profile tests, leaving hundreds unrepresented.
Many cannabis companies use these terpenes to flavor their oil. This result is a very poor facsimile of the intended strain because it contains only a tiny fraction of the hundreds of natural native terpenes that are actually present in the cannabis plant.
Northern Standard doesn’t do “facsimile strains”. We painstakingly preserve the native terpenes present in the cannabis plant throughout the extraction process. It’s certainly more costly and time consuming to do this, but we believe it’s worth the time and effort.

Our company is founded on the same resilient pioneering spirit of the artisanal miners, craftsmen and tradesmen who in 1873 founded Alma – one of only six surviving communities of the estimated 46 that were formed in Park County during the 1800s Colorado gold and silver rushes.
Northern Standard draws inspiration from the dense national forests that surround us, containing two-thousand year old Bristlecone pines, geothermal hot springs, some of our nation’s tallest mountains, and many historical mining and mill sites that are gracefully fading back into their environment.
Very little of the mining activity that shaped Alma and Park County remains today. Northern Standard is proud to contribute to the local economy by engaging in a new, greener industry based on an eco-friendly, renewable resource.
