Controlling Terpenes and Cannabinoids in Flower and Extract

Speakers
  • Founder & CEO, Complex Biotech Discovery Ventures
    Biography
      Dr. Roggen's latest project, Complex Biotech Discovery Ventures, a fundamental research laboratory and CRO of the cannabis industry. His research interests lie in the metabolite composition and behavior throughout the production cycle, SFE process optimization, and development of innovative therapeutic formulations. Dr. Roggen received his master in science degree from Imperial College, London, UK in 2008. He then pursued his graduate degree is organic chemistry at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ), where he received his PhD in 2012. He then was awarded an DAAD postdoctoral fellowship to pursue further training in physical organic chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla from 2013-2014. He then entered the cannabis industry, at first as laboratory director for Davinci Laboratories of California, an analytical laboratory from 2014 to 2016. In 2016 he moved into an executive position overseeing production, R&D and process optimization for OutCo, a cannabis manufacturer. Dr. Markus Roggen is also a trusted advisor and mentor for multiple startups, startup accelerators and organizations. Positions include advisory positions at Bloom Automation, a cannabis robotics company, Redfield Proctor, a waste management company, and former co-chair of the NCIA Scientific Advisory Committee.

    Abstract:

    The cannabis industry has realized that not just one or two compounds of the plant are important for a variety of medical indications. A plethora of metabolites, e.g. terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids, give rise to the desired effects. Such chemical makeups are not only dictated by the strain/cultivar, but also influenced by grow methods, drying and curing, and also the extraction method. Unfortunately, it is mostly overlooked how these processes lead to high quality, reliable products. This talk will discuss our latest findings on how to control the molecular makeup throughout the production pipeline.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. The audience will learn about the changes that happen to cannabis and its bioactive molecules during different production stages.
    2. The audience will learn about ways of how to control such changes and even consciously manipulate molecular profiles.
