The Clear™’s commitment to producing the purest cannabis concentrates on the market starts at the seed level.
The difference between The Clear™ and other products is that most other concentrate manufacturers use their leftover plant material to create their oils instead of the flower, where most of the cannabinoids and terpenes are located. Many of our competitors’ main source of revenue is selling flower, so they use only trim or shake that doesn’t make the cut for the dispensary sales floor, sometimes including plants with mold or spider mites. Considering how microbial contamination will not show up in testing after the affected plants are processed, the motto they use is, “Just blast it,” as they put poor-quality plant bits into cheap equipment.
We agree: Ewww.
On the other hand, plants grown for The Clear™ are of the highest possible quality, and we use premium flower for our oils, because concentrates are all we do.
That standard for excellence starts with the soil we grow our plants in. We don’t use nitrates or synthetic pesticides, which can leave a nasty taste that lingers in concentrates, and have been connected to causing illness in consuming patients. We use only organic soil, as well as natural methods like biocontrols to fight pests.
All of our hemp-derived CBD concentrates start with plants grown by local Colorado farmers with industrial hemp certifications, growers who use organic practices. And for our THC concentrates sold in Colorado, our sister company Bonsai Cultivation ensures plants meet their full potential. Bonsai Cultivation has won dozens of industry awards, including multiple High Times Cannabis Cups and THC Championships.
Bonsai shares our belief that all segments of the cannabis industry need to be conscientious about our impact on the planet, from what we put in the ground and water to our energy consumption and water use.
Bonsai’s state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility incorporates the latest in ecologically friendly techniques, including top-level technology for irrigation and automated plant feeding. The cultivation team reclaims and reuses 1,000 gallons of reverse-osmosis water produced each cycle by facility dehumidifiers. They also work to reduce waste by composting everything from soil to stems to fan leaves.
The Bonsai team’s focus on being as energy efficient as possible includes stepping down their power consumption for all lighting and mechanical equipment. Their energy-efficient HVAC system uses water chillers that reduce their energy consumption by 33 percent. They have created a special layout for their double-ended lighting system that reduced their facility’s lighting needs by 400 fixtures.
That system and techniques of managing their plant canopy with specially designed trellising mean they can produce the same yield with 40 percent less energy consumption. They also rotate the flower cycles in each room so that they only use 50 percent of their cooling capacity at any time. They also manage peak demand for energy use by offsetting times for power needs.
Bonsai is as green as they can be, and they set the standard for our THC cultivation partners in other states.
The old saying “garbage in, garbage out” definitely applies to concentrates. After proper curing, we put only the cleanest plant material into our proprietary extraction equipment. And it shows.
The Clear™ concentrates smell, taste and test better, with incredible purity and potency. There is a difference, and our satisfied, loyal customers recognize it.
It was only a matter of time before America’s best-selling cannabis concentrates brand launched sales in one of nation’s hottest marijuana markets. And to our friends in Nevada, we cannot wait to introduce you to the The Clear™.
Nevada cannabis consumers can now join those in California, Colorado, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Michigan and New Mexico (CBD only), who are already enjoying The Clear’s potent, pure oil in their vaporizers.
We’re thrilled to be partnering with Nevada Treatment Solutions as our exclusive licensee to bring The Clear’s expansive line of cannabis concentrate products to dispensaries across the Silver State. Nevada Treatment Solutions, best known for their stand-out Las Vegas dispensary Zen Leaf, is an established leader in American cannabis.
And what exactly will customers find when they purchase their first vaporizer from The Clear™? Our 500mg THC vape cartridges and 350mg THC disposable vape pens both feature the groundbreaking ceramic heating technology of CCELL™. And our initial Nevada launch includes seven of The Clear’s 17 proprietary, handmade natural flavors, including Blue Raz, Grapevine, Lemon Haze, Lemon Lime, Orange Cream, OG, XJ-13, and the traditional Golden Goat.
These products will of course be just as potent (up to 90% THC) and clean (using solvent-free extraction) as the cannabis concentrate products our enthusiastic customers across America have grown to love over the last five years.
Customers will also notice our industry-leading technology, which we’ve spent the last five years perfecting in Colorado and other states. We’ve been working with Nevada Treatment Solutions—as we do with our partners all over—on how to optimize the latest cannabis science available, our customized laboratory processes and the state-of-the-art equipment that has become synonymous with The Clear™.
Because we’ve provided such high-quality and reliable products to our customers over the years, The Clear™ has become the best-selling and best-known concentrates brand in the country. Many Nevadans already know us since they live next door to California, where The Clear™ was born and remains immensely popular. And of course, we’re looking forward to putting The Clear™ into the hands of Nevada’s legion of adult tourists, numbering in the millions every year.
We’re excited to be a part of Nevada’s new legal cannabis era, especially since Nevadans have gotten on board for recreational cannabis in such a big way; Consumers purchased $263 million in adult-use cannabis products in the first nine months of legal retail sales alone. And now the state is on track to generate $350 million in recreational sales in its first 12 months.
And for that, we applaud you, Nevada friends.
We’ll continue to do our part by expanding the offerings of our flavorful products to market in Nevada in the coming months—and in the meantime, please reach out and let us know what you’d like to see.

Why would an industry-leading cannabis brand known for its pure, potent THC concentrate products decide to branch into the CBD market?
Frankly, although we’ve spent five years building our THC product line, it wasn’t a difficult decision to bring The Clear into the cannabidiol (CBD) marketplace.
The Clear™ already holds a significant percentage of the vape cartridge category in the lucrative cannabis concentrates industry. But CBD products give us even more options and flexibility, and that’s what is fueling our expansion into America’s robust CBD market.
First, clinical data on the positive effects of CBD on various medical conditions continues to roll in. In December, the World Health Organization issued an important report that stated CBD is not harmful, has health benefits and does not have abuse potential, among other findings. While there have been years of anecdotal evidence, finally having scientific studies to point to is a critical component for helping educate people as to the effectiveness of CBD.
Second, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is beginning to open the door to cannabidiol products, with an advisory panel in April unanimously voting in favor of approving GW Pharma’s cannabis-derived CBD medication Epidiolex for treatment of certain forms of epilepsy
Third, more and more states are legalizing cannabis in various forms, and low-THC or CBD-only laws have been enacted in at least 15 states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The Senate, meanwhile, has fast-tracked Sen. Mitch McConnell’s bill that would nationally legalize hemp, which would vastly improve the domestic economics of hemp-derived CBD. Awareness of CBD products and their benefits will only continue to grow as more people encounter legalized medical marijuana, medical hemp and patients using these products.
While modern cannabis is consumed in a number of different ways, including edibles and tinctures, non-smokable cannabis products are a key component of state medical marijuana laws in places like Minnesota, Texas, Florida and New York.
And vaporized CBD fits the bill nicely.
While we are encouraged by the 29 states that allow medical marijuana and the nine that have legalized adult-use cannabis, we believe consumers in every state should have access to potent, pure cannabis extracts now. To ensure this, we extract our CBD from US-grown hemp that is certified compliant with the 2014 Farm Bill.
And because the terpenes that give our products flavors like Orange Creme and Potent Pineapple are not cannabis-derived, we can send products that incorporate them in most states and many countries.
We believe The Clear will become a CBD market leader, just as it has been in state-regulated THC marketplaces. Initial sales figures in our CBD product test markets—Arizona, Colorado and California—already tell us that our move to CBD is the right one. In Colorado and California, which have been big markets for our THC products, we exceeded our THC sales in just a matter of months. And that was without marketing, simply making the CBD products available. As we start to market these products, the potential for our CBD products is huge.
Conversely, as the volume of CBD sales rises, it will augment the THC side of our business by boosting brand awareness. When consumers become familiar with the superior technology and unique flavors of our CBD products, they can easily move over to our THC offerings sold in state-regulated dispensaries. It’s a force multiplier for our business.
And beyond those regulated dispensaries, there is powerful potential in distribution to unregulated vendors where CBD products are currently sold: pharmacies, smoke shops, retail health-and-wellness businesses, spas, drug stores and more. And the cannabis product trend is not just domestic—our partners are planning to bring our products to Europe and Japan, and then to other markets in Asia.
Consumers are also hungry for science-based, lab-tested CBD products that will provide positive experiences for those who have not found success with inconsistent off-the-shelf CBD products. Reliability, efficacy and quality are key for consumers, and with products like The Clear™, consumers know how much CBD they are consuming with each puff of the vaporizer.
From providing relief for those suffering from chronic pain or terminal illnesses, to killing a craving for nicotine, there are so many potential benefits, applications and avenues for CBD products. In the coming years as companies like The Clear™ continue to expand cannabinoid research and develop new methodologies for producing cannabis extracts, and as more states support a wider variety of CBD products, we believe the CBD market has limitless potential—and we are honored to bring a better CBD product to the market for these customers and patients.
Some big news for consumers looking for a clean way to vape CBD: The Clear now offers a cannabidiol-specific line of vape pens that are available in all CBD-permitted states and beyond (see below).
We are thrilled to introduce: The Clear CBD.
As the producer of The Clear, America’s best-selling THC concentrate, we are known for our patented science, advanced technology and unparalleled design—as well as the efficacy and quality of our products. The Clear is now bringing that singular familiarity with cannabis concentrates to the non-psychoactive space, in both 420-legal markets and non.
Vaporizable cannabis is our passion and focus, and our mission is to make sure everyone has access to pure, potent cannabis extracts. So making our clean technology available to those who want to benefit from CBD without getting high is the logical next step in carrying out that important mission.
There are so many nuances that go into an effective, enjoyable and safe vaping experience—so you want to go with experts who stand behind the history of their product. In the last five years, The Clear has set the standard for excellence and exploration in the industry with our golden, potent and pure cannabis oil that is available in cartridges, syringes and honey buckets.
When we develop a new product, we make sure it is the best on market, and our vaporizer cartridges are a prime example. Our precision-made CBD cartridges will be familiar to anyone who has tried any of our popular THC products, as it’s important to us that all products bearing The Clear’s iconic badge utilize industry-leading hardware and technology.
We also know that consistency is everything in the cannabis space, whether we’re talking psychoactive or non-psychoactive products. So not only will our customers know exactly how much CBD is in each cartridge—but they will also know that every complete hit on a Clear CBD cartridge will draw exactly 10mg of CBD, every time.
As we tell our customers: “Know what’s in your cart(ridge).” By reaching for The Clear, you never have to worry. Our proven scientific processes make The Clear CBD as clean, pure and consistent as our THC products. We use state-of-the-art equipment for all of our processing. Our labs create the purest CBD concentrate isolate out there, testing at 99.9% CBD. And we are proud to use only United States-grown hemp.
The first six palate-pleasing flavors for our CBD cartridges are Grapevine, Strawberry, Blueberry, Lemon Lime, Orange Creme and Potent Pineapple. All of our flavors are made in-house with steam-distilled, naturally derived plant terpenes.
After very successful test runs in Arizona, Colorado and California, our global partners will soon expand availability to other North American locations, plus Europe and Japan—and then other markets in Asia and beyond.
There are seemingly countless CBD-centric companies out there on the market, but The Clear has a longstanding history and unparalleled experience with this medicinal plant, and we have the loyal customer base to prove it.
The Clear is here to stay, and we’ll continue to bring new, top-quality products—like The Clear CBD—to cannabis consumers for decades to come.
