They also found items related to manufacturing and selling counterfeit vape cartridges, according to the agency that regulates marijuana, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
The agency says the facility was not licensed to process cannabis.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's Eugene office helped state police in the bust, along with the Lane County Sheriff's Office. Allegations against two people are now in the hands of the county prosecutor's office.
The bust comes after a vaping-related lung illness epidemic has struck nearly 1,900 people in the country, 14 of them in Oregon. Two of the state's victims died.
