About Us

The Original Resinator like many ideas, was developed out of necessity. The original backyard model was probably a lot like you might picture it. A MacGyver style bucket contraption including duct tape, bungee cord & paperclips. Fashioned with an old BBQ rotisserie motor and some old silk screen left over from grandmas closet so to speak. Keep in mind that this was only after extensive failures of many initial efforts. Capturing the resin glands through means of mechanical separation would prove to require sheer will and determination. Which resulted in lots of sweat, grit and commitment to the tedious process. Like anything worth doing, it took years and lots of money to go through different techniques & designs to find a working prototype. The research & development related to this quest was and is unequivocally a monster undertaking. This task required sacrifice and diligence to a cause we believe in.

Without the passion to advocate for our mission we would have failed before we began. That same passion has carried us through many trials and tribulations. That same passion is the driving force behind everything we have set out to accomplish. We knew that we needed to make this dream a reality. And we knew that we weren’t the only ones who needed a Resinator. If your reading this then you are exactly who we had in mind. You too can relate and have probably asked yourself similar questions relating to your passions around resin extractions. At one time or another you have probably wondered what to do with all your trim clippings left over from all your hard work. Or what your friends were doing with all there leftovers. You inherently found a solution to your problem and pursued your ambitions. Well we did to. And if your anything like us than tossing out all the undesirable clippings was simply not an option. Not only because you recognize the value of the entire plant, but because you also see opportunity where others see hastle. We saw the opportunity to turn that same hastle, into hustle. Waste not want not is our mantra. A lot of love and passion went into your craft and now you want to make the most of what’s still remaining. After all, one mans trash is another mans treasure.

We were already using every available means to get the most out of our yields. Literally turning our trash into stash. All day & all night resin production runs trying to maximize our production and minimize our waste. Let’s paint a picture of a few experiences from the days of old. We would go about collecting the resin glands through a variety of old school traditional methods. Although effective, these procedures were labor intensive and time consuming. Aware of some commercial methods, we employed various processes to accomplish what we set out to do. And by any means necessary. So we tried them all. Anything it took to get the pure essence of the flower in a concentrated form. To paint a picture, visualize hovering over a large trash can with a large hand held drill. Preferably one with a side handle. Now attach a paddle bit similar to what one would use to stir a 5 gallon bucket of paint, or a bag of concrete after adding water. Now this is is a large and heavy set-up and it requires around 30 minutes of steady mixing. So get a good grip and stand your ground. Keep in mind that the paddle bit can’t touch the bottom or sides of the bag because it will generally tear the screen if it grinds up against it or comes into heavy contact with any portion of the bag. Not only are these mesh bags expensive to replace but if they rip at all then they are worthless. Even when done successfully, the process of draining the water, collecting material and cleaning up the mess is a drag. The reward is always worth the pursuit when done properly, but be ready to get wet and sweat. And that was our best way of achieving wet extractions. Now in many resin applications, the bubble material is not useful. In these circumstances we needed to apply the dry sift method. Imagine standing around the glass kitchen table with a large silk screen cloth, held by 2-4 people. Now carefully and in unison everybody start to shake vigorously. Be careful not to let go or let the material fall off the edge of the screen though, cause it could contaminate all the hard work we just did. One of these times we even shock my wives kidney right into a full blown kidney infection. Needless to say, that was the last time she was gonna help shake the screen like that!

Finding ourselves still in need of dry sift results, we repurposed an old hand crank operated pollinator. Small batch limitations and tireless hand cranking sessions ultimately led to unsatisfactory results based off the amount of volume we were trying to run. We even started adding dry ice to our dry sifting to get better results. With so much material to process and such time intensive commitments, we thought…there had to be a better way. How can we take the manual element out of the equation and make this mechanical? We wanted to do more with less. We set out to create a solution to our problem. It may come as a surprise that the original version of our Resinator was initially designed and developed in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our children, liberty family inspiration and the local drum circles musical influence played a large part in The Original Resinator’s conception.

Life circumstances and dreams alike, ultimately led to our families relocating to NorCal. The research and testing of the prototypes really began in 2008 once we were rooted in California. It wasn’t until 2011 that the original OG model came off the assembly line. This original version was made entirely of acrylic and many of these units are still in operation today. With real results, we decided that a larger model would be the ultimate accomplishment. Before we really engaged into this costly endeavor, it was decided that we should seek out patent protection to determine the viability of the project. After an arduous two year process, coupled with extensive expense, research and development, we were granted our first patent. With a glass of champagne we toasted to our accomplishments. Our celebration however well deserved, was short-lived, because we knew that our work had just begun. It was time to boot strap this idea into a business. Sparing no expense, we set out to be the best. Make no exceptions. If there was one thing that we wanted to be clear, it was that we are “Clearly Better Than The Rest.” The journey is indeed the destination. And our journey has indeed, just begun.

Dreams and fantasies often have a thin line between imagination and reality. Sometimes in our lives journey, we are reminiscent of our dreams. When we pursue our dreams and our passions we find a bigger part of ourselves. That’s just what we did. Some things prove themselves to worth fighting for. Sometimes even more importantly, worth waiting for. The virtue of patience is one we had to embrace in this adventure. Without the support of our families and our friends, this project would still be just that, a project, an idea. We have nurtured our ambitions into a product that we stand behind and are privileged to share. An honor we don’t take lightly. The continuing support of our family, friends, neighbors and community alike are an important part of our lives and our future. In preparing for our future we must always be mindful of our present. Gifts come in many forms, and after all, the present is a gift is it not? We want to share the fruits of our labor. When seeking the pure nector from the source a hummingbird will always go where the resources are rich and plentiful. This is emblematic of our mission statement here at The Original Resinator. People always come before product. We stand behind our people. We stand behind our product. We stand behind our process. Any process requires a system. Our process and system deliver results. With the Resinator project proving itself to be everything we always thought it could be. Our hard work turned up success. Results we couldn’t argue with. (And you won’t either.) Our American dream had become a reality. As big as our dreams are, and continue to be, we all have our limitations. Recognizing our limitations is a strength if you know the right questions to ask? So we ask ourselves a lot of questions. So many questions? My how far we have come since the questions began so many years ago. We remain steady in our pursuit for knowledge. We constantly conduct new experiments seeking new methods and recipes. Research and development are an essential part of our growth. And if you are anything like us, you are GROWING everyday. And we all know that any real growth is accompanied by growing pains. Isn’t life hard enough… full of enough mystery? We aimed to remove the pain from the process… the mystery from the recipes. The industries best kept secrets are not classified information. The available products on the market are not getting the job done. It’s not info and products are impossible to locate. Just complicated, inefficient and hard to access or find in one place. In this day and age everybody seems to have the next best thing. Don’t let the imitators fool you. We are the originators. Our patent protected rotary separation devices set us apart from the rest. Our results speak for themselves. For years we would say, “It’s not when you arrive, but how you arrive.” We have arrived in style, and we are here to stay. Our community roots run deep. Our commitment to our customers is our top priority. As we all adapt with our culture around us, we here at The Original Resinator are committed to making the change with you. We listen to our customers. We look forward to hearing about your experience with our products. If used as intended we are certain that you will love the results. Find out for yourself. Your resinating experience should be one of joy. We give thanks to those before us for the inspiration. Now let us inspire you.

If our lives are all intertwined and luck is the residue of design… then one day at a time, let lives design Resinate even the furthest corners of our minds.

We have always known that our Original Resinator was more than just a flagship product, that we were building a brand.  A name to count on.  A name to trust.  A name to carry on to stand the test of time.  There is a legacy rooted in tradition which started long ago by previous generations.  The Original Resinator was built to carry this legacy on its back, but with the modern conveniences and amenities we have all grown accustomed to.  Forward thinking, attention to detail, and customer care will continue to propel our organization into the future.  Our proprietary process and intellectual property are cornerstones of our organization.  We are revolutionizing post-harvest and pre-extraction processes.  With new innovative ideas and products well underway, there is no limit to how far we can go.  Whether it’s solvent-free extraction or trimming flowers, we don’t pretend… We contend!

The torch has been passed and the future is clear – clearly better than the rest.
