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.
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.
