Cannabiotix is a leading producer of premium cannabis products, focused on providing safe and effective solutions for patients and consumers. CBX holds the cannabis plant above everything else and has an immense appreciation for its unique qualities and therapeutic benefits.
CBX is a boutique cannabis company founded in Southern California in 2014 by expert cultivators Neema and JB. What started in the underground bedrooms and garages of Santa Monica evolved into launching in Nevada during the medical marijuana age. In 2017, CBX began the journey back home to Los Angeles, California.
CBX was built by using natural and sustainable farming techniques to cultivate unique, award winning cannabis. With close to two decades of cannabis industry experience in growing and breeding world class flower, the team at CBX is made up of avid cannabis enthusiasts who are dedicated to giving each strain customized individual attention.
“We don’t concern ourselves with the bottom line,” explained Neema in an interview with Growers Network.
“We don’t concern ourselves with creating a lineup that’s going to yield the most per square feet. We are growing what we like to smoke at a top level. That’s what really sets us apart from the pack. Because we are willing to grow strains that might take 70-72 days to mature. We are never looking to rush anything to get a particular flavor out the door.”
Neema and JB grew up in Southern California together, born and raised on the beaches of Santa Monica with shared dreams of one day having a cannabis business with one specific goal in mind: to be able to provide their friends and family with the craziest weed they have ever seen or smoked. Today, the company is owned and operated by Samari and childhood best friend Eran Haroni.
Cultivated by Hand, Not Machine
CBX prides itself on their unique quality control practices in maximum trichome preservation. Their dry rooms are religiously monitored to ensure ideal conditions throughout the curing and drying process. Cannabiotix flower is a premium-quality, hand-crafted cannabis product that is carefully grown and processed to ensure maximum potency and quality.
To protect the structural integrity of the nugs, CBX hand trimmers use a unique “revolve the stem” technique, to ensure that flowers retain the maximum amount of trichomes through the manicuring process. This minute attention to detail is what keeps CBX delivering glistening, crystal covered, resin rich, gem like diamond buds in every single jar.
Decades of Flower Genetics Curation
The cultivators at CBX have been in the game long before legalized marijuana. They have had decades of collecting an archive of mind-blowing genetics, with some of them predating medical cannabis. This strain library consists of rare heirloom classics, new school exotics, and CBX in-house creations. In the past few years, CBX has bred these old-school classic heirlooms and new-school exotics to create exclusive strains for the recreational marijuana market.
Cultivars like their Kush Mountains, Cereal Milk, Tropicanna, Strawberry Lemonade, and L'Orange produce extremely unique and one-of-a-kind cannabinoid and terpene profiles. Some of their cultivars have been in their care since the early 2000’s, with a few of their genetics originating all the way back to the 90's.
The Cannabiotix two time award-winning Tropicanna was selected as one of High Times Top Ten best tasting strains in 2015 for its rich unique terpene profile. Tropicanna is a fusion of the cultivars Orange Crush and SFV OG Phenotype #17. This powerful Sativa dominant hybrid offers an uplifting aroma and flavor of fresh squeezed orange juice mixed with tangy pineapple. Tropicanna is purported to offer cerebral and uplifting effects, perfect for energizing yourself during the day or inspiring creativity.
A stunningly powerful combination of CBX’s award-winning Kush Mountains and one of their classic heirloom varieties, Lemon Sage Pheno #50. This rare cultivar is terpinolene-dominant, delivering a heavy dose of lemon pine, fresh earth, and spicy herbs.
Plump, somewhat elongated and circular, these beautiful ladies have a unique structure with various shades of green and hints of orange and red due to its high pistil production. The taste is phenomenal - pine forward with a pleasant hashy citrusy exhale. This cultivar is purported to offer a cerebral effect that may be euphoric, energizing, and soothing. Mountain Sage's dominant terpenes are limonene, ocimene & terpinolene.
Super Silver Haze
This old school Amsterdam sativa is one of the first strains the CBX founders ever had the pleasure of growing. Super Silver Haze is Skunk #1 and Northern Lights crossed with Original Haze. This unique Haze phenotype was thought to have originally been hunted from seeds back in the early 1970’s. Fortunately it has been passed down over generations of growers until she found her home at CBX.
Characteristics of this strain consist of dark orange hairs wrapped around light lime green buds that are heavily coated in crystals with a strong cheesy, earthy, slightly spicy smell that kicks you in the back of the nostrils. The flowers are purported to offer a buzzy, powerful, sativa Haze effect with strong uplifting and euphoric energy.
CBX concentrates are premium-quality cannabis products that are made from a fresh frozen, whole plant extraction process to maximize flavor and experience. Through the process of hydrocarbon extraction, CBX’s solvent-based concentrates consistently deliver a single-sourced high quality experience that captures the essence of some of their most unique in-house genetics.
CBX flower is freshly frozen after harvest, and immediately processed at cryogenic temperatures to capture the full flavor of each extracted strain. CBX extracts the concentrate and then undergoes a low temperature, low vacuum purge process, to clean the concentrates of all remaining solvent, while also preserving the highest level of terpenes and cannabinoids.
CBX’s Cereal Milk Live Resin Terp Sugar is a live resin concentrate with a wet sugar or sand-like consistency. Its flavor profile offers a unique fruity and creamy flavor with a floral exhale. Their most recent batch is testing at 81.96% THC. Its dominant terpenes are limonene, caryophyllene and pinene.
CBX Live Resin Cartridges
CBX Live Resin Sauce Cartridges are single-source, strain specific and 100 % live resin sauce completely free of any distillate, cutting agents, or artificial terpenes. CBX cartridges are created through a six week slow purge separation process where the extractors isolate an extracted strain’s terpene fraction from its cannabinoids. CBX then combines and homogenizes the two fractions together with the goal of creating an artisan vaping experience that delivers a full flower flavor that is true to the strain.
GM-uhOh Live Resin Cartridge
CBX’s GM-uhOh Live Resin Cartridge comes from their Chemdawg and Forum Cookies cross. GMO (also known as Garlic Cookies) is known for its incredibly unique terpene profile that is a mix of garlic, onion, mushroom, and gas.
GM-uhOh is an indica dominant hybrid with a purportedly calming effect. Their latest cartridges tested at 81.19% THC. Its dominant terpenes are limonene, myrcene and caryophyllene.
RPG Live Resin Cartridge
The RPG Live Resin Cartridge is blasted from CBX’s R.P.G. cultivar, which is a Purple Rain (Orange Crush X Purple Punch) and Gelato #41 cross. R.P.G. captures a unique terpene profile that draws from its parents to deliver a sour Fruit Punch aroma with a little bit of gas on the exhale. The latest batch of RPG tested at 81.48% THC. Its dominant terpenes are limonene, myrcene and caryophyllene.
Kush Mountains Live Resin Cartridge
Kush Mountains was one of High Times' top ten strains of 2018, winning the World Cup for Best Hybrid Flower. This cultivar is phenotype (#4) of the White Walker OG and Blue Flame OG cross. The latest Kush Mountains Live Resin Cartridges tested at 91.82% THC. Its dominant terpenes are limonene, myrcene and caryophyllene.
