Case Study: Bobsled Extracts

Posted on Nov 13, 2019 10:49:18 AM

Bobsled Extracts purchased their first extractor back in 2017 and it completely transformed their business. 

How can the IO Extractor help your business grow and scale?

In the dynamic landscape of the cannabis industry, innovation and efficiency are key drivers for success. Amid this backdrop, Luna Technologies has emerged as a pivotal partner for cannabis businesses seeking to elevate their extraction processes.

With a proven track record of delivering cutting-edge solutions, Luna's IO Extractor has rapidly become the go-to choice for upgrading and automating extraction operations. This synergy of automation and increased throughput, embodied in the IO Extractor, has sparked remarkable transformations within the industry, and one such story is that of Bobsled Extracts. 

A Blossoming Partnership:

Bobsled Extracts embarked on its journey in 2015 as an organic cannabis farm, cultivating quality products with a commitment to sustainability. Recognizing the potential of vertical integration, the company ventured into the extraction realm, a decision that marked the beginning of a partnership with Luna Technologies. In 2017, Bobsled made the strategic move of investing in its first IO Extractor, setting the stage for a groundbreaking evolution in their business.

A Metamorphosis Unveiled:

The infusion of the IO Extractor into Bobsled's operations brought about a paradigm shift. Within a single month, the undeniable impact became apparent as sales of cannabis extracts outstripped those of the flower. This marked the first instance of the power of the IO Extractor to revolutionize businesses, not just incrementally, but transformationally.

As the journey continued, the subsequent three months saw the emergence of a new business narrative. The potential of the IO Extractor was harnessed to its fullest extent, enabling Bobsled to actively extract a staggering 90% of biomass from their farm, surpassing their initial projections of 50-60%. This exceptional efficiency meant that they could process the entire monthly biomass from their 10,000-square-foot farm within a mere two days, a feat that was previously inconceivable.

Furthermore, the IO Extractor unlocked avenues of expansion, leading Bobsled to diversify by venturing into third-party processing and distribution. This strategic pivot opened up additional revenue streams, solidifying their position as an industry leader and innovator.

A Year of Pinnacle Growth:

The trajectory of Bobsled's growth continued its upward arc. Within six months, the soaring demand for cannabis extracts necessitated a bold move – the acquisition of a second IO Extractor. This step was driven by the imperative to accommodate the overwhelming demand and cater to the influx of biomass from third-party producers.

At the one-year mark, the demand persisted, and Bobsled's success story reached a crescendo. A third IO Extractor was brought into the fold, a testament to the continued surge in demand for biomass processing and cannabis extraction. This strategic expansion enabled Bobsled to consolidate their market position and continue scaling their operations to meet the ever-growing appetite for high-quality cannabis extracts.

Seizing the Opportunity:

For those seeking a catalyst to amplify their cannabis extraction operations, the Bobsled story with Luna Technologies stands as an inspiration. The combination of Luna's IO Extractor and Bobsled's visionary approach demonstrates the potential to transform businesses within the cannabis industry. As the journey of Bobsled Extracts exemplifies, Luna Technologies' commitment to innovation, efficiency, and strategic partnership has the power to redefine success in the evolving cannabis landscape.
