Jetty Extracts Review: A More Stylish Brand of Waxes, E-Juices & More
Nugg Team | March 20, 2017 | 3 Comments
Jetty Extracts is a nonprofit founded four years ago in San Diego by surfers with a love of cannabis and a desire to help the ill. Its products, image and ethics totally embody So Cal.
Utilizing a retro Americana aesthetic—think pomade, burlesque dancers and raw denim—Jetty has crafted marijuana concentrate products that speak directly to a fashionable young demographic always wanting something different. Their products are detailed, flashy and a great deal fancier than the minimal packaging of most cannabis products.
A particular breed of jaded buyer will probably think “vegan über hipster” and approach Jetty Extracts products and reviews with a certain amount of skepticism and bias. It’s understandable; plenty of brands justify a higher price tag by creating products purely designed to appeal to a rebellious youth culture who’s willing to sacrifice quality for an appealing façade.
Is Jetty Extracts any different? It sells attractive products, but do they live up to the level of quality promised by their packaging?
We’ll review Jetty Extracts products and find out what the company’s all about.
Part of a growing trend in the cannabis industry, Jetty solely makes extracts utilizing a supercritical CO2 extraction method, which is thought by many to produce a cleaner product and experience than those extracted with a solvent (most commonly butane).
While some find butane extraction dangerous only in the hands of an unreputable producer, most research points to it creating a product that’ll more often than not contain additives not suitable for human consumption. Jetty’s CO2 method guarantees that the potential dangers of solvent-based extractions are avoided altogether.
Jetty goes a step further than some of their competitors by adding back the terpenes that are often lost in the extraction process. Though these are only present in trace amounts (of almost all cannabis strains), they nonetheless act synergistically with cannabinoids and are often medically beneficial.
Another way Jetty goes above and beyond commerce is with their Shelter Project initiative, which provides cancer patients with clean and safe medicinal cannabis oil and/or high CBD plants at no cost. The initiative is backed by donations, volunteers, and Jetty itself, as the company donates 1% of their gross revenue to the cause.
Philanthropists, weed activists, and cannabis enthusiasts alike looking to support those in need can rest assured that a part of their purchase goes towards supporting a great cause!
While 1% of revenue isn’t much (although it certainly adds up), we’re a growing business ourselves, and respect has to be paid to those who think about more than just profits.
After all, profits won’t move this industry forward, people will.
The company produces extracts in all basic forms. These include:
Simply combining the Jetty battery with the oil cartridge creates a convenient vape pen. Just push the silver button to produce the ideal dosage. Two or three solid puffs and you’ll be feeling better.
The vapor is clean, smooth and doesn’t taste burnt like with some lower-quality concentrates. And Jetty’s wide variety of strains means that Jetty Extracts not only makes an effective product, but can cater to your favorite kind of high and improve almost any ailment.
There’s also a handy leather Jetty Jacket you can tie to almost anything and take your vaporizer on the go! Now that’s something you don’t see everyday, and is testament to this company’s focus on delivering an exceptional, high-end product.
Jetty Pure and Gold cartridges each contain 700mg of clear, clean cannabis concentrate. The Pure cartridges contain between 60 and 70% THC; the Gold cartridges around 80% THC. Pure cartridges sell for $40-50 and gold for $60-70. Each comes packaged in a small labeled burlap sack, which itself is housed in a rustic tube that looks more suited for incense than oil.
In addition to their stylish packaging, Jetty also makes indica and sativa CBD blend cartridges (2:1 THC:CBD ratio) that have up to 30% CBD.
They’re available in a variety of familiar strains like Jack Herer, Trainwreck, Blue Dream, Green Crack and Grape Ape. Jetty’s website doesn’t list all of them so you’re dependent on what your local dispensary has in stock, or you could just use getnugg.com and find several dispensaries that have the one you’re looking for, and will deliver to your home.
Vape Refill E-liquids:
These e-juices come with a dropper and contain 1000mg of flavorful oil in each 3ml bottle. In addition to refilling your own Jetty pen it can be used to replenish almost any empty cartridge or standard liquid vaporizer. Available in the same wide variety of strains as the cartridges.
Jetty’s wax is offered in indica, sativa, hybrid, and a variety of specific strains, as well as in two levels of refinement: gold and raw. Jetty’s gold wax is a stronger, purer honey-colored concentrate while their raw wax is a darker amber since it isn’t as refined in order to preserve the medically-beneficial terpenes. Sold in 1g containers for $40-45.
This is where Jetty has a major leg up on its competitors. This discreet, pen-like hybrid holds 1ml of their pure, strain specific CO2 concentrates in one handy dabbing device specifically designed to deliver clean, easy application. Even the packaging looks great. And with a reasonable $45-55 price tag, you get a big bang for your buck.
Just twist to reveal the button, push, and apply the desired amount of wax or hash oil you want to dab. Or you could add a tad to your next bowl, joint or blunt for extra aid; if you don’t smoke or vape, the pre-filled wax is safe and delicious, so you can put a dollop on your favorite edible, food, dish or drink.
Remember, concentrates naturally pack a punch so don’t be fooled by the small amount and use too much.
Despite the container/tool/applicator’s efficiency, users have complained that its twist-and-push function is complicated and can cause more frequent malfunctions that end up accidentally wasting or adding an extra amount of concentrate.
Since then Jetty Extracts has redesigned the dablicator by simplifying the process: just twist to release a proper and mess-free amount of wax or oil, guaranteed.
Jetty also sells empty, refillable dablicators in packs of 25 for dispensaries, other concentrate producers and anyone who wants to see their name on this versatile invention.
For that jaded individual with the (possibly) irrational fear of hipsters, Jetty Extracts may not be the best brand for you. Though the quality of the products is undeniably high in virtually every regard, they’re not the simplest, most straightforward, or cheapest that some traditionalists may prefer.
Jetty’s products are sold at a somewhat higher than average price point. Those looking for fresh and innovative methods of medication will likely be happy to pay for the luxury, but anyone looking purely for the most cost effective way to get relief may find another company better suited to their needs.

“Just picked up this indica dablicator from u guys at hempcon got to say its AMAZING !!!!!! Taste is so pure and clean I’m on the hunt for it now. #jettyproducts is pure fiiiiiiire”—Samuel G.
“This was my first oil purchase and I was not disappointed. It’s pretty strong but I found it to be great for being uninhibited in social situations and when you have to still function. I’m kind of a sucker for the little bag it comes in as well. It’s a cute touch…I would buy again for sure.” —Hannah M.
“Very potent and great price for all the CO2 oil e-juice you get. Very tasty and smooth.” —Aidan D.
“Not only is [the dablicator] much cooler looking than the less threatening syringes that CO2 wax usually comes in, it’s easier to apply…everything sampled had a clean taste to it…” —Ashleigh C.
Not only are Jetty’s concentrates effective, but the wide variety of products and strains means that they’re effective down to very specific kinds of uses and kinds of highs. Vaping an indica on the go, or adding a sativa concentrate to the outside of your joint are all possible with one or more of Jetty’s products.
Their strength is comparable to other premium brands on the market. The gold cartridges are very strong, and only topped by companies with high amounts of THC as their primary selling point.
A clean extraction process that also preserves terpenes means that these concentrates taste great.
While some may be happy to pay for a premium quality product, others will find the high price tag unjustified, due to competitors offering equally strong products without a high level of craftsmanship that they may find unnecessary.
From this Jetty Extracts review, you can see that the TLC that goes into their products is apparent: the innovative design of their dablicator, the purity of their extraction process, and their dedication to aiding cancer patients embodies everything a premium cannabis brand should be: stylish, philanthropic, and dedicated to creating kickass products.
Even though they may not make the ideal cannabis products for some patients, it’s almost impossible to find fault with the brand as it succeeds in practically every area that matters.
The Americana-based image isn’t just a façade. Jetty is truly a company dedicated to craftsmanship as much as curing.
