A Note from the Author
As a business owner, I seethe case for investing in large scale ethanol extraction and extract distillation equipment. While distillate can be used to produce many types of products, it is a narrow cannabis chemical profile. The cannabis plant is rich with hundreds of compounds that interact with the human body on a biochemical and physiological level. Distillate offers consumers a narrow experience and is far from the chemical profile of the cannabis plant. I see the value in a cannabis marketplace with a wide variety of cannabis product options with different chemical profiles. This is different from most mature markets which offer a wide variety of cannabis brands and product types, but a small variety of chemical profiles. My hope for the future is that cannabis consumers recognize the value in cannabinoid diversity and demand it. I hope this forces the market to shift to meet this demand and bring products closer to the plant.
