Semisynthetic Strategies for the Production of Cannabinoids from Cannabis Sativa

Although recreational and medicinal marijuana is legal in Canada regulations limit the content of certain cannabinoids, such as ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (?9THC) in commercially grown strands. With close collaboration with our industrial partner Plantbiois Ltd., this research project will develop methods to produce ?9THC by synthetic conversion from highly abundant cannabinoids in unregulated, low THC strains.
