We provide detailed knowledge of the deconstruction & reconstruction of botanical extracts to maximize therapeutic potential.
To create effective products, it is necessary to understand the nuances of each particular market and develop a strategy to meet the needs of the end user. Unequivocally, this approach lends to consistency and reliability of products– a phenomenon currently unrepresented in botanical extract production. Botanical extract cultivators aspire greatly to standardize their grows through various lights, nutrients, and unique genetics, but these efforts will never meet the level of standardization that processing delivers.
Just as we do not attempt to control the growing and harvesting of opium from Chinese, Afghan, and Indian cultivators, we should not suggest that there are any proper conditions for botanical extract cultivation. While these producers should maintain efforts to control their grows, real consistency lies in processing.
Differences between strains, though critical to cannabinoid and terpene expression, are insufficient to properly develop truly standardized products. Identifying effective products goes far beyond simply matching health benefits to a specific strain. Knowledge of the plant's genetics alone does not reveal the full extent of its physiological effects. Instead, we must look toward material processing. Only through the refined techniques of extraction, distillation, and preparative chromatography can we shift from medical to pharmaceutical grade material. This change represents true value added to the industry.
