Nugget Candy Co. is a hancrafted, solventless concentrate company based out of Sumpter, Oregon. It was founded in 2018 by four marijuana enthusiasts who sought to create the top solventless concentrates in Oregon. Being nestled in the Elkhorn Mountains gives Nugget Candy Co. months of clean, pure mountain fresh water, allowing them to create their solventless concentrates.
Nugget Candy Co.’s three types of hash are created by sifting the trichomes of the marijuana plant through a series of screen in the presence of mountain fresh water and ice. Doing so separates the trichome glands from all other plant matter. This allows consumers to experience a solventless, full spectrum, full-flavored, and full cannabinoid concetrate.
