Convert CBD to THC

Travis Turner, CEO, HZB and Noah Cook, President, HZB LA, talk about converting CBD to THC and the implications of the farm bill combined with the tens of …


  1. So, can someone explain to me why take this convoluted route rather than growing some TRUE AFGHANICA and just harvest straight up Delta-9 THC resin? Why are we trying to compete with what nature does best? Obviously government wants legal weed to be the analouge of processed wheat…not the full spectrum product in its natural ratios, but rather a unidimensional and semisynthetic one. It's no secret that legal weed is inferior in many aspects to the hybrids being produced pre 2014. You can't expect to have fibrous leaning plants to produce the richness in resin and terpene content that woody plants do.Obviously from a producers point of view its better to grow these hemp and rudderalis leaning hybrids cause they are less energy intensive grown indoors and less environmental controls grown outdoors. Now to top it up the norm is most legal weed is nothing but hemp sprayed with distillate. The legalization movement took advantage of a generational shift to normalize this trend for the up and coming millennial consumer. Those of us who have been smoking since the 90's know what's up. So glad I moved out of the PNW, which is ground zero for this sham. I can finally smoke real 90 day tree of Afghan lineage.

  2. It’s not true that you can just do chemical conversions on a legal product and think that the resulting reaction is automatically legal – all the precursors to methamphetamine are legal but once you systhetically change those precursors it falls on the illegal side of the law – synthetically converted thc is still illegal thc under the federal laws

  3. They are intentionally making this seem more difficult than it is.

    Go get some muriatic acid and some naptha(found in the paint thinner isle) from a hard wear store. Put some ground hemp flower in a milk jug, now add an equal amount of nap that. Add 5 drops of muriatic acid and let it outside with the cap screwed on for a week. If it’s winter then you let it sit in a tub of lukewarm water inside, and if the water in the tub gets to room temperature just pour it out and put more lukewarm water inside. The goal is to keep the contents of the milk jug at around 100-120 degrees F. Shake the milk just real good every hour or so. After two weeks, strain of the hemp flower and evaporate off the naptha outside until you are left with a thick sticky oil which has no smell of naptha. Remember naptha is extremely flammable. Do not evaporate it inside. Do not filter it inside. If it ignites, there will be a huge fire.

    There, that’s your Converted THC. You can dab this or do whatever, it will get you high AF. Hemp flower is legal in all states and can be bought online for around $30 an ounce at a

    Don’t worry about all this isomer bullshit. Delta8 THC will fuck you up up just like regular weed. BTW, you can also just skip all these steps and buy a Delta 8 THC cart online for $40 to $70. I’ve gotten them shipped to me, so they are definitely legal. They get you just as high as a regular cart and they feel the same, too.

  4. No, there’s a clear definition for “all-natural” — It means it’s derived 100% from a ‘natural source’ and not synthesized in a laboratory/‘chemical substance’.

  5. This is crazy because I went to local hemp shop in wi and asked about delta 8 because where I live cannabis high in delta 9 thc is illegal medical and recreational but because of the law with hemp here we can sell cbd and delta 9 thc has to be 0.03%. But because they can take cbd and convert it into delta 8 thc, it’s totally legal to sell it in a concentrated form. Anyways it’s pretty much the same as delta 9 but I can tell a little difference just on the potency between the two. And seems like delta 8 starts to wear off after 25/30 min where delta 9 can last up to 90 min for me. So with all this conversions I don’t see why they don’t just legalize all cannabinoids because cbd can basically be shipped anywhere and if laws change where delta 8 now becomes illegal people will just start converting it them self’s and sell it off the black market.

  6. It's called an acid catalyzed cyclization; the terminal ally group double bond becomes protonated by an acid which results in a positive charge on the tertiary carbon, next the lone electrons on the closest -OH phenol group conduct a nucleophilic attack on the positively charged carbon resulting in a positive charge on the phenol group, finally the the phenol ground is deprontonated to give a ground state ether oxygen as part of a newly formed six member ring.

  7. This is not a difficult thing to do even at a large scale. Even to get a large ratio of delta 9 to delta 8. It is simple, hire a synthetic organic chemist, maybe even me if you would like. These are silly sales guys who are incompetent.

  8. all I know and I have heard are rumors that it was done from "oil" maybe extracted with butane or ethanol and then some strong acid like sulphuric acid was used …. I doubt it is true because sulphuric acid can actually burn organic matter … so the sulphuric acid can not be that pure ….. there is hydrochloric acid in your stomach but I think that some CBD gets converted to THC in your stomach might also be a rumor …. oils make soap with bases , so you might end up with soap when neutralizing that thing

  9. I'm so glad this is mentioned. Read Marijuana Botany for exactly how the isomerization is done. Acid is used to bump up Delta 6 THC to Delta 9 as well as cannabinoids being converted to THC. Funny how the legal weed industry has no clue about this. Really it's sad. BTW does any one mention THCV ? Nope just a total bull shit numer on the percentage of THC . What type of THC ? No one cares. There is only significant amounts of THC in trichromes . Have you ever looked closely at ripe flowers? What percentage of the flower is made up of trichromes ? And trichromes are not pure THC.
