Area 52, a health supplement brand is currently working on a patent application for the production of herbal extracts used in alternative medicine and agriculture. A primary focus of the company is the production and distribution of high-potency CBD-rich plants for sale to qualified medical marijuana cardholders in the states of California and Oregon.
A CBD-rich distillation process yields a highly concentrated, low boiling point product with a psychoactive effect that is much like the action of cannabis. The distillation process also yields a CBD-tolerant delta-8-THC that has very similar characteristics to the active component in cannabis. While the two substances may be useful separately, they are believed to be especially effective when combined, and there is no evidence that CBD can interact with delta-8 THC or other therapeutic drugs.
