Toll Processing

Toll Processing in California

Also called contract processing, tolling, toll conversion, and toll manufacturing allow companies to convert their cannabis biomass to cannabis extract such as crude oil, distillate, isolate, and more. Processing cannabis starts with drying, curing, and trimming cannabis biomass or flower to ensure that cannabinoids and terpenes are preserved for extraction. 

Whether you’re looking for a single extraction or an ongoing processing arrangement, we are here to help.

Toll Processing Facility License

Before considering a toll processing provider, it is essential to understand the facility licensing, as this will impact the quality of the end product. Houdini Lab is a Type 6- Non-Volatile Solvent Extractor and Type 7-Volatile Solvent Extractor licensed by the State of California, Department of Public Health under the Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch, located in Sacramento.

Toll Extraction 

Toll extraction services utilize Cannabis Flower or biomass and extract the raw oil or crude, sold or further processed.


Toll Distillation 

Toll distillation services turn THC oil into refined distillate, which can be sold or further processed.


Toll Isolation

Toll isolation services turn distillate into purified THC isolate, sold or utilized for finished products.


Toll Processing Splits

A popular way for cultivators or brands to reduce cost and address cash flow challenges is through a “toll processing split.” Houdini Lab would process the client’s biomass and produce crude, distillate, or purified isolate. In this type of relationship, a percentage of the processed product is agreed to beforehand as payment for the service with no cost to the client.
