Special: MMGA Cannabis Conference Part 3

Play

Here is part 3 of the audio from the Helena Montana Medical Growers Assocation Cannabis Symposium that I went to back in September.

If you would like to show your appreciation for the countless hours spent up late nights when I should have been well in bed for work the next morning, feel free to contribute some motivation in the form of a pay pal donation.

This part you will hear from Dr. Noel who has his doctorate in analytical chemistry, speaking about Cannabis Chemistry and the science of Cannabis. After that we hear from Dr. Rose who is going to explain how they do the tests in the Cannabis labs, including Gas Chromatography (GCMS), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), and Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC, HPTLC). Then we hear from another Cannabis scientist talking about why Cannabis needs to be rescheduled. It’s all about the scientific method. After that they do some question / answer. This is great stuff, so listen and learn, and I hope you all can gain something from this.
