Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids (0)

Cannabinoids are made from Geranyl Pyrophosphate combined with either Olivetic Acid to make CBGA or Divarinic Acid to make CBGVA. Everything starts from these two non-activated Cannabinoids.

Terpenes

Terpenes (3)

Here we will cover some basic info about various Terpenes common to Cannabis but first... just in case you are now saying "What is a Terpene"?  Lets give you the simplest way to know what they are and how they are grouped. 

 ISOPRENE 1. All Terpenes are formed from Isoprene. Isoprene is 5 carbon atoms long and every Terpene is basically made from this building block, think of an Isoprene being a singular Lego Block.
 Isoprene149x105  
  2. Just like lego's these units can be snapped together so they will always be 5,10,15,20,25 or 30 carbon atoms long.
They may have additional Hydrogen and or Oxygen atoms attached which changes them from Terpenes to Terpenoids.
Either way we can use the more commonly used term, aromatic hydrocarbons.
So again Terpenoid's are Terpene's that have been oxidized meaning one or more Oxygen atoms have been added.

So a Isoprene is the smallest Terpene with just 5 carbon atoms. Think of an Isoprene as a Stem Cell or a Lego Block.  This molecule is critical to everything about Cannabis. Everything!

To begin with its the building block for ALL the other Terpene’s and Terpenoids. And 5 is the magic number

  1. A Hemiterpene is 5 Carbon Atoms so it contains 1 Isoprene unit.
  2. A Monoterpene is 10 Carbon Atoms or 2 Isoprene units.
  3. A Sesquiterpenes is 15 Carbon Atoms or 3 Isoprene units.
  4. A Diterpene is 20 Carbon Atoms or 4 Isoprene units.
  5. A Sesterterpenes is 25 Carbon Atoms or 5 Isoprene units, these are somewhat more rare actually.
  6. A Triterpene is 30 Carbon Atoms or 6 Isoprene units.

We see this molecule in the building blocks of Cannabinoids too, just look at the structure of Geranyl Pyrophosphate, Its the Starting Lego Block for all Cannabinoids.  Read that section after this one if you haven't already
We will write more about each terpene over time and we will continue to bridge the knowledge gap. Our end goal; to make it as easy to understand and with as much detail as possible. But writing this up takes time. 
It will happen though as this is core to our mission.   :EDUCATION
Documentation is what creates Education and that is where we are today.
Same end goal though - explaining this in a way that is as simplified as technically possible.

his is a Custom Batch that was targetted between 12-14 mgs per  drop of THC. It tests at 12.9 mgs of THC per drop.
It has almost zero Terpenes, this way you can add whatever Terpenes you want to control the high. this is a VERY STRONG Product, hence the 'Holy Shit' designation

Cannabis in The America's

Written by
When Columbus sailed to the America’s in 1492 his ships carried hemp seed. This was in case of shipwreck so they would be able to grow crops for both their raw materials & as a source of nutrition. 90% of all ships sails and ropes have been made from hemp for thousands of years.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp themselves and washington even lamented about not getting back early enough to separate the males and female plants. It appears our first president was smoking cannabis as that would be the main reason to separate them by sex.

Thomas Jefferson was much more than just our Third president he was likely also our nation’s first drug smuggler having smuggled hemp seeds out of china and france back here to the colonies by the 17th Century. China (wanting to keep its monopoly), made it a death penalty offense to export any such seeds. That was hemp though, probably not as smokable at that point in time as any of the Indica strains we know about today but that would change over time too 

The first drafts of the Constitution and Bill of Rights were also written on hemp paper.

Alpha Bisabolol

Written by

chamomile tea 333x250Alpha Bisabolol also known as levomenol, is a natural monocyclic sesquiterpene.

I know, that is a mouthful and most like way over everyone's head... Terpenes are made in groupings of (5) carbon atoms. 

So a Sesquiterpene is basically 3 lego blocks in size, meaning they are defined by their grouping of 15 carbon atoms. Basically its an assembly of 3 isoprene units with oxygen attached making them isoprenoid units. 

Alpha Bisabolol has a mild, floral, peppery odor and it is the major active component of Chamomile. It has long been used in cosmetics for its anti-inflammatory, healing, soothing, and anti-microbial properties. Alpha Bisabolol is well suited for use in skin care preparations and can be useful in both sensitive skin and child/baby products as a soothing active. It has the following benefits.

  • Shown to induce apoptosis in models of leukemia.
  • Enhance skin absorption of various molecules. 
  • Strong wound healing capabilities.
  • Natural deodorant replacement abilities.
  • Heals wounds
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Analgesic
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Anti-mutagenic
  • Antioxidant
  • Neuroprotectant

Batch Numbering System

Written by
Batch Numbers

They are generated as follows

[Month] - [year-2 digits]-[date-2 digits]-[batch number of the day] So Months are like this.

A = January

B = Feb

C = March

D = April

E = May

F = June

G = July

H = August

I = Sept

J = Oct

K = Nov

L = Dec

M NOT VALID

N NOT VALID

and so on… With this we have the capacity to do up to 999 batches every day and keep them all totally separate.

That means a batch labeled L1610002 would have been made on December the 10th 2016 and was the second batch of the day.

HCO - what is it and where does it come from

Written by

HCO, what is it, where does it come from?

In short HCO is an acronym that stands for Holy Christ Oil.

It is a most ancient recipe, given to Moses directly by his almight GOD.

Some might call it Highly Controversial Oil.

Basically its RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) with extra bling. Some say its also a miracle in a bottle.

History accepts that Jesus was a great Healer, the bible tells stories of him healing the Sick.. Even raising the dead.

What isn't talked about though is how he did that. Some religious people think he did it simply by laying his hands on them. If that is the case, then why is the Greek work for the act of Anointing someone Christo's, Jesus the Anointer?

the recipe that Jesus would have used to heal people.

But again how many know that its actually written in the Bible, in the Old Testament to be specific. Everyone accepts that there might be some mistakes or changes that have taken place each time they translate the Bible into other languages. The first of these translations was called the Septuagint (latin for seventy) and was to be done by 70 scribes, hence the name. This is the very first Bible in some respects and it was also the very first translation of the Torah and some related texts into any language other than ancient Hebrew or Aramaic and this was to be translated into Koine Greek. What's historically interesting is understanding why its about to be translated. The Greek King of Egypt Ptolemy II Philadelphus (309–246 BC) was helping build the Great Library at Alexandria and that tells us that it was written during the 3rd through 1st centuries BCE. This will be the first time anyone is do a translation of these ancient texts and its going to from Hebrew into Greek. Guess what one of the mis-translation's was. If you guessed the Recipe for Holy Christ Oil you got more right than they did. We wouldn't even know this though if Sara Benetowa aka Sula Benet back in 1936 wrote a book called "Tracing One Word Through Different Languages”. This was a study on the word Cannabis, based on a study of the oldest Hebrew texts. Historically the word Cannabis was thought to be of Scythian origin. However, Benet’s research showed it had an earlier root in the Semitic Languages such as Hebrew. Benet demonstrated that the ancient Hebrew word for Cannabis is Kaneh-Bosem. Sara knew her stuff as an etymologist from the Institute of Anthropological Sciences, in Warsaw. She wrote several books that followed the word Cannabis back through history. So back to what HCO is, it is the recipe as told to Moses by his God.
