Current Research Projects & Interests
We are currently working on testing the different constituents found in spagyric preparations and standardizing them. Standardization is the only way to create reliable and consistent products regardless of the starting material.
Below are different research projects we are actively testing.
Project 1: Synthesis of New Cannabinoids via the Spagyric Preparation of High-Cannabinoid Hemp
Project Description: A spagyric preparation of hemp creates unknown reactions and mechanisms in regards to cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and potassium salts. After the spagyric process, the reacted salts are filtered out. Cannabinoid profile testing concludes that the cannabinoids undergo different mechanisms during the spagyric process. This in turn modulates the cannabinoid ratios and potencies. We are currently testing our spagyric hemp preparations with LC-MS and GC-MS methods to find out if any new cannabinoids are created in comparison to typical ethanol extracted cannabinoids.
Project 2: Synthesis of Potassium Iodide and Other Nutrient Rich Salts from the Spagyric Preparation of Sea Vegetables
Project Description: The spagyric preparation of bladderwrack, kelp, alaria and dulse should contain high amounts of essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins. Certain compounds found in these sea vegetables are especially important as a dietary supplements. Upon advanced spagyric preparation, different filtrates and salts will be precipitated and tested with LC-MS and GC-MS to identify what constituents are formed during the process. This project has the potential to create a full spectrum, entourage like effect when it comes to supporting and regulating the thyroid and adrenal glands.
Project 3: Synthesis of Esterified Vitamin C from the Spagyric Preparation of Amla Berry
Project Description: The Spagyric preparation of Amla Berry will contain high amounts of Vitamin C. The process of esterification may happen during the spagyric preparation which could give rise to more bioavailable forms of Vitamin C. This could represent a superior, natural source for this essential vitamin.
