“We can create a variety of products, all through one machine, it’s fantastic!” – Lilach Mazor Power, Owner of Giving Tree Dispensary
Giving Tree is one of the longest standing and well-respected grower and retailer of premium cannabis products in Arizona. Giving Tree provides a one-of-a-kind selection of consciously sourced and delivered cannabis products with an unmatched retail experience. They purchased their first Apeks system, a Transformer® 2000-5LD in 2015 and then added a 20L module the following year.
Lilach Mazor Power wanted to open a wellness center that combined Eastern and Western medicine but once she did her research, she realized that she had no viable business plan. It was at that time that cannabis came up on the ballot. She’s always believed in cannabis and realized that she could create a wellness center with a different product.

Advice from Lilach
Lilach recommends companies surround themselves with the right people and the right suppliers. She says, “The support we got from Apeks throughout the years is unbeatable.” Also, Lilach is adamant that full automation is the way to go. With her Apeks systems, she does just that!
Giving Tree started with a 5L vessel setup and quickly learned that this was a bottleneck which impeded production efficiency. Then they added a 20L vessel which increased their daily yield and oil production. They use their system to fractionate the terpenes, then run supercritical parameters for two additional fractions.
