• Terpenoid Chemistry for Herbalists

Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock. An unforeseen consequence of the medical cannabis movement has been a resurgence of interest in terpene and terpenoid chemistry. This vast subject includes such things as essential oils, aromatics, saponins and resins. In this discussion, we walk through the different categories of terpenoid compounds, discuss their chemistry, potential therapeutic effects, and best methods of processing. Kenneth brings samples for a sensual survey of the visible, aromatic, and physical properties of terpenoid compounds as well as a discussion of extraction and concentration methods that include different distillation techniques, soxhlet extractions, and solubility enhancement methods. Be prepared to be immersed in the sticky, smelly, intoxicating world of terpenoid chemistry. Catalog number 18ME16
