LACY stands for Lossless Activation Chamber Y- it is a proprietary and patent-pending system that allows for the activation of cannabis without any degradation of original plant profile. It allows you to capture the full effects of any particular strain into a variety of non-smoked forms, resulting in the world’s first truly strain-specific non-smoked cannabis products. LACY makes cannabis a legitimate, effective, and holistic medicine.
LACY works by allowing only CO2 (a byproduct of the activation/decarboxylation process) to exit the reaction chamber while simultaneously maintaining the full plant profile of the specific strain you started with. Nothing added, everything preserved.
LACY activates cannabinoids while preserving the full plant profile of the cannabis you put in. These activated cannabinoids (along with the full plant profile) are then ready for use in a variety of non-smoked product types.

Yes and No; LACY is an activation/decarboxylation process that allows you to preserve the full-plant profile of any given cannabis strain and capture all of its unique effects in non-smoked forms (capsules, topicals, inhalers, etc.). LACY has the ability to start from flower, or concentrate, meaning it does technically “extract” during the infusion process. However, the LACY system is not for creating cannabis concentrates, but for the activation of cannabis forms for non-smoked consumption.
CO2 and BHO have been around for decades now. They are simple extraction systems that work to strip the plantmaterials of all of its goodies - creating what’s known as a cannabis concentrate. LACY takes it a step further. LACY activates these concentrates or the original plant material for use in non-smoked products. But unlike everyone else, when we perform the activation/decarboxylation step - we do it losslessly, preserving everything found in the original plant material or concentrate we started with. Allowing us to truly harness the effects of that specific strain of cannabis.
Activation/decarboxylationis a simple and necessary process that unleashes the psychoactive effects of cannabis. In order to feel the effects of cannabis, decarboxylation must occur- but the problem is, the old way of carrying out this process (stick it in an oven) destroys the plant profile you started with. So it may have been Blue Dream when you started the decarb, but by the end of the process it no longer contains the characteristics or effects of Blue Dream. There has to be a better way. The concept of decarbing or activating isn't new - but maintaining the full plant profile throughout the process is, and that’s where LACY comes in.LACY is the first and only system in the world to perform Lossless Activation.
Cannabinoids are a class of molecules that work on the endocannabinoid system found in each and everyone of us. There are two kinds of cannabinoids: (1) endocannabinoids - those found in your body naturally (used to regulate a variety of bodily functions)and (2) phytocannabinoids - plant based cannabinoids that are found most abundantly in cannabis. The cannabinoids found in cannabis need activation prior to use but traditional methods of activation destroys the rest of the plant profile (namely terpenes). LACY activates these plant based cannabinoids (with no degradation) while maintaining the whole plant profile as well.
Terpenes are an important component to the overall cannabis experience, not only influencing a strain’s taste and smell but also influencing its effects on the body. Terpenes work in concert to either catalyze or inhibit effects of other compounds within the plant. This entourage effect is the unique and synergistic combination of cannabinoids and terpenes, ultimately producing the unique effects that distinguish one strain of cannabis from another. Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in cannabis. Despite not being quite as popular or as well-studied as cannabinoids, these diverse molecules are instrumental in delivering the physiological and psychoactive effects of cannabis. LACY is the first and only system capable of maintaining these vital compounds (and others) throughout the activation process.
The Entourage Effect is a mechanism by which compounds present in cannabis which are largely non-psychoactive (terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) by themselves modulate the overall psychoactive effects of the plant. All of the compounds in cannabis (like cannabinoids and terpenes), working in together create the distinct effects and medical benefits of a specific strain of cannabis. LACY™ is the first and only system to preserve the entourage effect of a specific strain all the way through the activation/decarb process.
