About Us

High Desert Pure was founded by two tech-savvy families from Bend, Oregon in 2015. Our backgrounds? Computer programming and chemistry. Naturally, we couldn’t wait to geek out over the cannabis space. But once we started investigating, we got nervous. We saw concentrates full of additives and chemicals. Topicals with dismally low cannabinoid numbers. And we thought—yeah. We can do better. Ever since, we’ve been bringing unparalleled dedication to the craft of cannabis. And because we think the science of cannabis is so important—and fun!—we want to share it with you.

Meet the Herb Nerds

Welcome to High Desert Pure. Our story begins when two Bend, Oregon families decided to take their tech and science know-how to the budding (heehee) cannabis industry. Ever since, we’ve been learning how to make the best products we can. While our techies and business folk work hard at making sure operations run smoothly, our chemistry commanders are passionate about turning the best organic trim on the market into the best oil on the market. Yeah, we work hard…

But we play hard, too. We’ve never lost our local, Bendite roots, and you’ll love our stuff for the same reason you love Oregon — our craft CO2NCENTRATE is natural, local, and oh so pure.
