Now that access to this potent medicinal herb is increasing, it's time for herbalists to revive the historical pharmacy methods of making broad-spectrum tinctures, elixirs, oils and salves.
Using methods developed by herbalists and pharmacists of the 1800s, and updated with contemporary phytochemical understanding, we'll learn how to make concentrated products
that include not only the famous cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.) but also the synergistic terpenes, flavonoids, carotenoids and (Yes!) chlorophyll. Unlike most extraction methods being
used for the market today, which focus only on cannabinoids, we'll learn about how to truly prepare Cannabis as a medicinal herb in all of its wonderful complexity.
