Cannabinoids are any chemical substance, regardless of origin or structure, that join cannabinoid receptors of the body and brain and that have similar effects to those produced by the plant Cannabis Sativa L.
Examples of cannabinoids found in plants are; Phytocannabinoids (∆9-THCA, CBDA, CBGAy CBCA) and Endocannabinoids (anandamide “ANA”, 2-arachidonoylglycerol “2-AG”). Synthetic cannabinoids are fully synthetic and created in the laboratory. Examples are Dronabinol (∆9-THC synthetic with active compound MARINOL®) and nabilone (active substance of CESAMET®)
Omega3's, which come from certain species of algae (Chlorella, Spriulina, Pavlova, and others) are necessary to balance Omega6's in order for Endocannabinoids to work properly.
Algae based technologies have become a popular source of everything from non-edible feedstock for advanced biofuels to nutritional supplements. Like bacteria, algae can also be used to produce a wide range of bioactive recombinant proteins that can be leveraged to create a wide range of other molecules – including high- value therapeutic molecules. Algae Farm® related intellectual property, Biogae™, a proprietary modular and scalable Algae Farm® indoor algae production device, is capable of growing and harvesting each and every species of the aforementioned algae species in significant quantities. Specifically, two hundred eighty three (283)4,000 gallon Biogae™ units operating in a climate controlled indoor Algae Farm® will be capable of producing 2,996,291 dry weight pounds of any (species) algae biomass in a climate controlled 50,000 square foot building. Therefore, there is no need to produce synthetic cannabinoids when massive quantities of organically grown and cannabinoids are possible in an indoor Algae Farm®.
Algae are plants and grow by photosynthesis. Algae consume carbon dioxide and emit hydrogen and oxygen. In addition, algae chloroplasts are capable of producing bioactive recombinant proteins, which means that algae can be genetically engineered to produce a wide range of therapeutic proteins that can be used to create millions of different molecules.
Algae generated proteins are beneficial because; they are devoid of any known human pathogens, they are comparatively very inexpensive to produce, they produce consistent, high yield concentrations of final products, they can produce very complex therapeutic proteins, production environment can be carefully controlled in an indoor Algae Farm® and replicable process expedite product development.
