WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DISSOLVABLE CANNABINOIDS
- November 26, 2018
Over the past couple of years, you can probably imagine that parents have been on high alert after the news about marijuana legalization was released. After all, now that a drug is 100% legal in some states and allowed for medical use in many more, wouldn’t you (as a parent) have cause for concern? Needless to say, the little green plant has not always received a ton of positive light. Earlier this year, a 5th grader from New Mexico unintentionally gave some pot-infused gummy bears to her friends, while some Indiana teens suffered from a severe attack after consuming THC gummy candies. Now, marijuana tea, energy drinks, brownies, and sodas are on the market. What’s next? How about some cannabinoids that can dissolve in a liquid? Here is what you need to know about these tricky little chemicals.
What Is the Purpose?
Overall, many members of the cannabis community (just like the rest of us) might be turned off by the horde of sugary snacks and drinks that line the shelves of stores. Needless to say, the same could be said for their feeling towards pot-infused edibles. Likewise, regular cannabinoids are fat-soluble and do not mix very well with water. After being added to a product (e.g. batter, coffee), these chemicals coagulate and do not produce a very delightful blend. However, dissolvable cannabinoids are completely soluble and mix well with other products.
Keep in mind, though, that these cannabinoids are completely tasteless. So, your child will not be able to tell if something containing these chemicals tastes particularly odd, and neither will you.
Synthesizing Dissolvable Cannabinoids
Since 2016, Colorado-based company Stillwater Brands has been experimenting with dissolvable cannabinoids to provide a sensible, healthier solution for marijuana aficionados. In fact, founders Jeremy Goldstein, Missy Bradley, and Justin Singer joined forces to find a replacement product for Justin’s grandmother, who suffered from diabetes. As a result, the business produced its signature product: Ripple (dissolvable THC).
Here is a look at the laboratory process used to create these products:
- Emulsification: full decarboxylation of the marijuana cannabinoids
- Drying: ensuring all moisture evaporates
- Packaging: sending out to the customers
