The Pot Lab grows, extracts and formulates its exclusive collection of research products through federally regulated protocols (National Institutes of Health, FDA and USDA Organic).  The Pot Lab is a national research cooperative, meaning that both clients and workers are entitled to making democratic changes to the structure and function of the organization. Our research is created, executed and empowered by our community, while respecting the current federal guidance and more so, protecting planet Earth. Our sustainable indoor grow is solar powered and complies with USDA organic regulations. Additionally, our extraction protocols eliminate the need for any chemicals.
