About Us

Synergistic Technologies Associates is a boutique cannabis consulting firm based in the Boston, Massachusetts area. We merge technologies with traditional providers in the cannabis industry – to provide repeatable methods of saving time and money.

We provide a variety of consulting, management and leadership services including: Maximizing Productivity, Quality Control, Content Uniformity, and Maximizing Extraction Yields for traditional providers within the Cannabis industry.

Synergistic Technologies Associates is focused on helping you boost efficiency of work flow for botanical and medical cannabis productions. Our endeavor is to help businesses to clearly define their goals and then reach them with simple, but potent and proven methods. We also help you identify various methods to measure your performance redundant, so that you can reach your goals. We are looking for cannabis producers whose entire process is Formulation Centric, meaning that the amount of product per extraction is the key to your business.

Synergistic Technologies Associates’ mission is to enable traditional providers in the cannabis industry to experience a simple and effective process to maximize their extraction yield on each run. This can translate into $10,000 to $30,000 or more in recovered revenue per run. In addition, the goal is to show you how to do it within a day or two, so that you can be completely independent in running your future extractions with maximum yields. In the end, Synergistic Technologies Associates helps you make the product be what you want and intended it to be. Isn’t that how it should be?

Amazing Synergistic Extraction Design That Will Boost Your Productivity & Work Flow

We will travel directly to your facility and cover any and all questions you may have, before starting the process. Once we’ve begun, we will show you, step-by-step, the diagnostic process involved in pinpointing the problems and effectively implementing the proper solutions. You’ll have not only a trusted expert in the industry to guide you, but you’ll also receive a blueprint of the very system that you’re going to use afterward.

The whole point is to leave you with the tools and know-how to perform your own cannaboid testing for all your future runs. Of course, you are always welcome to contact us with questions or concerns, but the point is to help you to get more out of what you’re currently putting in. How does that sound to you? What would an improved work flow with an extra $10,000 or recuperated extraction product mean for you?
