I have about 10 kilos of dried, powdered cannabis root. It’s been sitting in my warehouse close to a year now and finally decided to do something with it.
Looks like there is some interesting stuff there however not much:
triterpenoids, friedelin (12.8 mg/kg) and epifriedelanol (21.3 mg/kg); alkaloids, cannabisativine (2.5 mg/kg) and anhydrocannabisativine (0.3 mg/kg); carvone and dihydrocarvone; N-(p-hydroxy-β-phenylethyl)-p-hydroxy-trans-cinnamamide (1.6 mg/kg); various sterols such as sitosterol (1.5%), campesterol (0.78%), and stigmasterol (0.56%); and other minor compounds, including choline.
I’m going to try room temp maceration in high pH water first then soxhlet extraction with ether followed by chloroform and finally acidic methanol. That should give me 4 different crude extracts for further processing. But does it make sense? Even assuming 100% extraction and separation efficiency the final quantity will be really small…
Any tips? Anyone interested in my results or extract samples? Or maybe it was already done and shared here but I suck at using the search function?
