Meticulous craft isn’t an option; it’s an imperative.

As cannabis assumes its rightful place in the wellness industry, Gold Moon is setting the standard. We took a cue from history’s greatest craftsmen and focused on attention to detail. Our sourcing, extraction, testing, and refinement are designed to deliver a shatter experience unsurpassed in consistency, purity, and potency.

 

CRAFTING

At Gold Moon our first priority is delivering innovative premium cannabis concentrate products. At the core of this is our crafting process.

  • Source

    Our Process begins at the source. We work only with cultivators who pride themselves on best practices and who are as passionate about their craft as we are. Their rigorous quality control ensures that we start with the freshest cannabis botanical material.


  • Extract

    After the raw material passes state testing requirements, we subject it to our own thorough examination. When we’re confident that the product meets our standards, the BHO extraction process begins.


  • Refine

    The unique artistry of our process comes in after the initial extraction. Most laboratories use a vacuum oven to heat and remove unwanted material, a method that strips the product of some of its active ingredients. That’s where Gold Moon rewrites the script. We created the unique Nitro-XT process which uses very little heat, purifying our shatter and eliminating the unwanted fat, waxes, and other impurities.


  • Balance

    Just like a human fingerprint, every cannabis plant has a unique terpene and cannabinoid profile that decides its taste, aroma, and effects. The challenge is that many of these important terpenes can be lost in the extraction and refinement processes. Gold Moon’s Master Terpist captures detailed information about these strain elements before extraction, then infuses the lost terpenes back into the concentrate.

      A.  Sight
      Consistent Color

      The color can range from honey-yellow to amber depending on the strain and terpene profiles, but it should be consistent throughout; this means no perceivable impurities remain. There should be few bubbles, the presence of which may indicate residual butane. The color may change over time as the shatter is exposed to light and air, but the consistency should not, as long as it’s stored in the original container.


      B.  Aroma
      True to Strain

      The shatter should have the same general aroma as the plant strain. Some strains will have a very light aroma, while others will be a little stronger. An overwhelming scent might indicate that too many terpenes were added back in, and could result in a harsher taste on your tongue and throat.


      C.  Feel/Touch
      Firm and Dry

      The structure of the shatter is important. When the shatter becomes hard and brittle as it cools, there are likely fewer terpenes in the product, which can cause problems when used. When the shatter is too sticky as you pull it apart, it may contain too many lipids and/or terpenes. The key is to get it just right.


      d.  Flavor
      True to the Plant

      The flavor should be smooth, not harsh, and close to the plant strain itself; if there is little flavor, it may be over-processed. At Gold Moon, our flavor-enhanced shatter is designed to complement the plant’s natural strain terpene profile using no artificial ingredients.


      e.  Effect
      Consistent Experience

      When you find a product that delivers, consistency is crucial. Our products are crafted by masters from an extensive library of flavor and strain profiles, ensuring that the terpenes responsible for your desired effects are present in the exact same ratios from batch to batch. From flavor to effect to potency, Gold Moon delivers a consistent experience each and every time.



  • Protect

    After balancing the concentrate, we work quickly to preserve the integrity of the product. We use glass containers because glass fills quickly and seals air tight—exposure to air can greatly reduce terpene levels, especially the lighter, more volatile monoterpenes. As part of our Nitro-XT process, we use nitrogen to flush out any remaining oxygen before sealing. With proper packaging and correct storage, your Gold Moon shatter arrives as fresh and as potent as the day we crafted it.
