Daniel Maida Hayden, Ph.D. received his B.S. in Biotechnology from Rochester Institute of Technology and his Ph.D. in Plant Molecular Physiology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. His dissertation focused on the molecular mechanisms of tropical plant senescence and aging.

For the past 10 years, Dr. Hayden has worked exclusively on Cannabis oleoresin extractions, specifically involving cured resin. He invented High Terpene Full
Spectrum Extracts, or “HTFSE”, in 2016. Dr. Hayden developed the extraction
technique that led to the creation of HTFSE: “Cosolvent Technique.” The technique uses CO2 as a Cosolvent-like-buffer to protect the oleoresin during hydrocarbon extraction, resulting in a wonderful experience of flavor and effervescence in the final product.

One hundred percent of all the products are derived from CURED RESIN
and cannot be replicated or reproduced with living resins. The Cosolvent technique is capable of high-throughput at 100s of pounds processed a day, but also small-batch. As little as 1 lb. of cured trim is capable of generating profitable cured cannabis retail products that truly resemble the unique identities of the cultivators and strains from which they are derived.

Dr. Hayden has worked in academic, government, and private laboratories as a molecular engineer specializing in merging biology with technology to study ongoing molecular and metabolic processes that lead to phenotypic results. These pursuits mostly focused on plant secondary metabolism, plant tissue culture and transformation, and transcriptome analysis of developing oilseeds and endosperms. He possesses declared competency by fire code officials and is a leading subject matter expert on plant biochemistry involving the composition and creation of secondary metabolites in the trichomes of cannabis plants.

Dr. Hayden’s core expertise involves environmental health and safety, clinical lab experience, solvent handling, and process management which ensure the ultimate safety of his employees and all legal and compliant retail products manufactured by Extractioneering.
