Great.  Patented, synthetic marijuanas instead of using carefully cultivated actual plants.  Profit uber alles!

The compound in question was presented to the world in partnership with EPM, a global biotechnology company based in the U.S. that aims to bridge the gap between the cannabis and pharmaceutical industries.

A little cannabis before a workout was rather nice back in the day. Then again, it did seems to be a gateway substance to shopping for "gainer's fuel" supplements at GNC. YMMV

5mg of 1:1 ratio THC/CBD goes for about 50 dollars here in Thailand.  I'm curious how this would priced.  If it is more accepted in places where medical cannabis is still banned/frowned upon, it could be a game changer.

That wasn't the take away I got.

The organic form of these acids are too unstable to use in medical research, presumably because they break down so easily, and don't play well with others.  This means any *real* research into what they can be twisted into for various types of medicine is severely limited.

This is a stable synthetic version that can be used, and has interesting properties they can possibly use for both non-adictive pain relief, and mental disorders.

It takes *nothing* away from people using the organic form for its various medicinal properties (and non-medicinal).

So don't get on your soapbox and start screaming about how weed is about to become patented and priced out of the average consumers range.

It's always been amusing to me that the weed I smoke everyday is way, way more potent than anything Bob Marley or Jerry Garcia ever got their hands on.

Wait.  What?  What about bedbugs?

I gave the stuff up a good while back because I had to.  It was just before people were frequently getting nitty gritty about silly strains.  I often thought the science, if you will, was stupid, but I could tell it was valuable to someone else, and not just a smoker.

This article just leaves that behind and tries to go farther in how humans react to cannabinoids and with this one they may have a constant that isn't one of those mutants have made it to market at different times. It's a good thing for research as far as I can see, but I don't know shiat, man!

Thanks for taking me in stride.  You have a great week, Mr. Balls.

fragMasterFlash: So some MDMA chemist decided to see what would happen if they used ether to distill cannabis instead of cacti? Interesting but hardly novel or patent worthy, IMHO.


I think it's a bit more involved than that..They had to look into the cellular chemistry of what was going
in and coming back out to find the acid that was a precursor of cannaboid..But the precursor was unstable
chemically..So they decided to try to put it into ester..VIOLE' stability.. They didn't say what kind though..
If it's a lipid, it would be like infusing this acid into something like vegetable oil or glycerine..

They still would have to figure out how to either synthesize the acid, or how to extract it from the plants
on a scale that would work..Who know how much they would get per plant since it's an unstable
chemical that could only be a tiny tiny fraction of the makeup of a plant at any given time..

Could, but the mountains here are gorgeous and the cost of living can't be beat. Drag the party to you hard enough and it don't really matter much where one parks one's hindquarters. Of course that's just my opinion, I'm literally stoned. Still correct.

The old timers in the formerly illicit industry said this was exactly what would happen. Of course RJR will spread some bullshiat around, touting the pain relief, or, as a treatment for PTSD, but since it's not real cannabis, it'll have all kinds of poison in it.

I don't see why RJR would be so eager to compete if it wasn't for the fact that they are just so goddamned greedy. Cigarettes and cannabis? Jesus guys, haven't you killed enough people already?

If it's a safe effective long term alternative to Prednisone then I'm all for it. Have been on Prednisone for my back (two collapsed discs) and felt great but my specialist will only let me take it for two weeks every twelve months as it farks your kidneys and other nasty side effects.

I also like my acid with my cannabis and my cannabis with my acid but that's another long spaced out psychedelic story.
