Thanks for updating mastermind57
Well I suppose it needn't be continuously profound, but it could most definitely serve as an adjunct with other subtle anxiolytics. Perhaps combined with L-Theanine it could prove a useful regimen for some.
Curious to read about your experience as well.
n95: How's the synthesis coming along?
The synthesis isn't actually going at all at the moment. I'm currently in the process of gathering data on the potential long term benefits, which would justify entire venture.
i think it much more easier growing a high cbd specie (cannatonic, janita la lagrimosa, cb crew...) and then extracting CBD than synthesize it
Yeah it's easier, though it's not as legal
Nope if there will be strains with almost no THC. As Avidekel from Tikkun Olam evidences 1%THC and 16%CBD and some crossings of Lagrimosa with pure Afghan showed 0.3%THC with 17% CBD.. it wont take much time before discovering some strain with pure CBD content
I'm not saying it won't
be legal to grow and extract, I'm saying it isn't
yeah, we should pursue growing low THC/ high CBD plants (although its unpopular amongst kids)
I am not knowledgeable about industrial hemp, there should be plants with CBD content as high as 5% of weight but I am really not sure about its extraction process, if it can be done keeping low costs then it should be possible to extract large amounts of pure CBD. Dont know where is the issue with this.
Pure CBD isnt available on alibaba or other marketplaces and medical grade cannabidiol is way too costly so theres probably some issues with whole process of extraction. The only simple process I looked for was through evaporating THC at lower temperature and then the rest of the plant is just CBD (if the strain got enough of it),.. but how to get liquid CBD extract?
Medical grade CBD is costly not because of the extraction process but because it is extracted from hemp which contain only trace amount of CBD so you need tons of hemp to get some CBD
there is a patent about CBD extraction from marijuana, after a quick read it seem relatively easy to extract Pure CBD (99,9%) from the plant
you need Dry Ice to get the crude extract from the plant then ethanol to get THC and CBD from the extract and finally Pentane to get pure CBD (but you can use another non polar solvent )
pure cbd is a crystaline powder
