Panakeia and The Future of Cannabis
With no Delta-8 or Delta-9 THC and with a significant concentration of cannabigerol (CBG), Panakeia will have a remarkable commercial value. Bazelet Research has studied this molecule (CBG) for years. CBG is the decarboxylated form of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the parent molecule from which other cannabinoids are synthesized.
The Panakeia plants are expected to be ready for cultivation by 2021 which indicates that new CBD products from these plants would surely flood the US markets with an even better value proposition. The CBG compounds can be incorporated in a wide range of products including cosmetics, foods, and nutraceuticals.
