Philter Labs

Philter Labs is a technology company creating sophisticated personal filters for the modern-day vaper.

Philter Labs aims to reduce the stigma associated with vaping tobacco and cannabis.

Philter Labs was founded in 2016 by Christos Nicolaidis, John Grimm, and Yuval Shenkel. The company is headquartered in San Diego, California.


Philter Labs' product is simple enough: It’s a portable filter that eliminates nearly all secondhand smoke and vapor. PHILTER™ recognizes the ever-growing vape market as well as a shift in users due to many reasons, including the legalization of cannabis.


PHILTER™ reimagined personal, handheld filters by engineering a unique filtration process that not only filters emissions but treats vapor and smoke to dissolve and eliminate particulates and pollutants.


Philter Labs is backed by Bravos Capital and Explorer Equity Group. The company raised an additional $1M in funding on April 01, 2020. This brings Philter Labs' total funding to $3M to date.
