My son Austin, founded Terpp Extractors in 2013 and was a great admirer of, and mentored by Grey Wolf and others at Skunk Pharms Research, during the early development phase and evolution of our hydrocarbon extraction systems. Joining Rogue Station Companies will jump-start our next step forward.”

Terpp Extractors’ history and reputation will be part of the foundation we build on and the extraction equipment space is among the fastest-growing sectors within the cannabis industry. By emphasizing acquisitions in manufacturing, support, infrastructure and other “don’t touch the plant” fields, we expect our business to be scalable and national, regardless of delays in cannabis legalization efforts.
Our first priority related to Terpp Extractors is to increase inventory and our marketing exposure of the great products they produce including the MK3 and MK4 Extractors. These extractors can be used by a variety of customers within the cannabis space, including Extraction and Processing labs, growers, pharmaceutical companies, dispensaries in both the cannabis and hemp markets. Our extractors offer customers extremely high yield and the highest quality output at an affordable price. As the Cannabis and Hemp markets continue to explode, the demand for these extractors will follow market demand”.
