Welcome to the Research & Technology thread. This thread is for the discussion of research being done in and around the fields of cannabis and hemp. There is so much emerging research in this field, feel free to post links to scholarly and/or peer-reviewed articles, government sites, and university/laboratory reports.
At Georgia Tech, they can’t even legally talk about hemp until the Governor signs the new law into effect, but we have a proposal from three of their researchers.
Here is one: Preliminary Proposal to study the extraction of cannabinoids from cannabis biomass using co-solvents with supercritical and near-critical solvents
More details available if anyone wants to discuss it.
I am learning about the different extraction methods. Being an herbalist at heart, I would have to say the full-spectrum oil is what I would choose to use in my topicals. At risk of sounding naïve, does anybody have information on the levels of CBD extracted when using traditional herbalist methods such as oil infusions and the old fashioned stovetop method used for making cannoils. I live in California and familiar with working with Cannabis this way but not hemp. Can CBD products have the same potency with this more natural form of extraction? Hope this question makes sense.
