Chocolate and CBN – a most natural pairing!

Chocolate and Cannabinoids: They go great together. A near-perfect delivery mode - enhanced bioavailability, great taste, antioxidant-rich, the list goes on. Analytical testing of CBN, CBG, THC, and CBD in a chocolate matrix brings in canna chemistry from both the processing as well as analytical chemistry domains. Proper dosing/serving size, product labeling, accurate testing

Cannabinoid Gummies to the Rescue! CBN, CBC, CBG, THCV

Personalized Remedies and Medicines with Gummies For nearly 100 years, gummies - those stick to the teeth, fruity, sweet, fun to pop in the mouth - bears, worms, fish, rings, fried eggs, soda bottles, dinosaurs - were candy. In the last ten or so years, they have been the fastest growing mode for adult

Do Not Judge Cannabinoid Isolates Based Solely on Color – CBDV, THCV, D*T and Others

Did you know that a cannabinoid can be like a chameleon in the sense of being different colors based on different conditional factors? In canna chemistry, finished isolate products, even clear liquids and white powders, are not necessarily a determinant of purity. It is the same situation in the pharmaceutical world. Isolates can be

Combating Chronic Pain Without Opiods – Cannabinoids like CBDV, CBC, CBN and CBD are Coming to the Rescue via their Activity on TRP Channels

Bully, Torturer, and Killer - Chronic Pain Must Be Stopped, as well as its Most Effective Antidote, Opiods TRP Channels Maybe because most of us are still trying to organize our thinking about CB1 and CB2 receptors, we haven't yet read the papers about Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) channels and how scientists are beginning

Why Do PK and PD Curves Matter with CBD, CBC, CBN and THCV?

Are you serious? Only 6-10% of the cannabinoids in my Gummy Bear engages my endocannabinoid system? By Andrea Holmes, Ph.D., Chief Growth Officer, Precision Plant Moleculs This article was originally published in the July-Aug 2020 issue of Extraction Magazine.

CBC is an Ambidextrous Phytocannabinoid. Might it be the Next “It” Cannabinoid? What do snails have to do with CBC?

Why CBC is one of the Big "4": CBC, CBD, CBG and THC In PPM's previous newsletter, we talked about Cannabichromene (CBC) being chiral, having both a right- and left-hand molecule geometry. In Nature, it is fairly rare that she produces both stereoisomers in equal proportions. The chemical term for this equal ratio is

Cannabinoids like CBC can be a “Righty” or a “Lefty” – But Let’s Keep Politics Out!

Don't worry, Naturally Occurring Molecules can be Chiral but such Phytocannabinoids are Not Making a Political Statement. Let's use Cannabichromene (CBC) as an example. First the Facts: 1. CBC is a naturally-occurring so-called "minor" cannabinoid and is increasingly in demand by formulators to make more effective remedies and medicines and may be an important contributor to the

The Poison is in the Dose: Cannabinoids (CBD, CBN, CBC, CBxyz!) vs Tylenol Toxicity – Part II

Let's consider what you have in your home and its toxicity as we judge cannabinoids. Please recall two important definitions in the study of toxicology: LD50 is defined as the "median lethal dose" of a substance that will kill 50% of those given that amount. NOAEL is defined as the amount of a substance

The Poison is in the Dose: Safety Profiling CBD, CBN and the Minors – Part I

Sola Dosis Facit Venenum. "The dose makes the poison." Paracelsus, a Swiss physician and chemist, is credited for this maxim. He coined it 500 years ago. His famous dictum in its full glory is: "What is there that is not a poison? All things are poison and nothing is without poison. Solely the dose
