BLENDED CANNABIS COMPOUNDS AND METHODS OF MAKING THE SAME

FIELD

[0001] The presently-disclosed invention relates generally to blended/processed cannabis compounds, and more particularly to blended hybrid cannabis medicaments and methods for making the same.

BACKGROUND

[0002] With mounting instances of abuse, addiction, and death caused by antipsychotic medication, there has been a recent increase in the search for alternative forms of medicating those who need help. Not just in humans, but in other mammals like dogs, a large number of prescription medicines either have terrible side effects or are ineffective for their intended purpose. This expanded search for alternative remedies has led to an increase in the development of cannabis-based medications. Cannabis, or marijuana, comes in various forms which includes whole and/or partial plants utilization, with some possessing a high psychoactive content and others having no psychoactive effect. Both humans and other mammals have specific cannabinoid receptor sites. These sites are primarily in the brain and central nervous system and in peripheral organs, especially immune cells. Together, the receptors make up what is called the "endocannabinoid system." The molecule that is responsible for most of the psychoactive effects of marijuana is called tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. This molecule mimics the naturally produced neurotransmitter known as anandamine by stimulating the CB1 receptors in the brain to create the psychoactive, "high" feeling often associated with marijuana. On the other hand, the cannabidiol, or CBD, molecule found in some marijuana actually counteracts the effects of psychoactive molecules like THC. CBD is an antagonist to the CB1 and/or CB2 receptors and opposes the effects of THC. However, THC being psychoactive and CBD being non-psychoactive does not mean that one or the other is bad or good individually. The interactive synergy between cannabis compounds has been coined the "entourage effect" and offers a full spectrum of therapeutic compounds (e.g., cannabinoids and terpenoids) from "whole plant medicine.".

[0003] In this regard, while there are many possible benefits to marijuana based medicines (which are endocannabinoid enhancers (eCBEs)), to this point in time, there has been difficulty in creating effective hybrid cannabis plants that, when mixed them with other substances, create effective medicines with minimal side effects for mammals.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0006] The invention now will be described more fully. Indeed, this invention may be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to the embodiments set forth herein; rather, these embodiments are provided so that this disclosure will satisfy applicable legal requirements. As used in the specification, and in the appended claims, the singular forms "a", "an", "the", include plural referents unless the context clearly dictates otherwise.

[0007] This invention includes, according to certain embodiments, a matter, substance, compound, material, element, food product, oil, or drink, which contains a hybrid THC/CBD marijuana blend. In particular, embodiments of the invention are directed to the combination of hybrid marijuana strains with various other substances in order to create medical remedies for various illness and pains that transpire in the life cycle of mammals.

[0008] I. Definitions

[0009] The term "marijuana" may encompass any combination of the three cannabis species: Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis. Additionally, it will be used interchangeably with cannabis in the present specification.

[0010] The term "soil" refers to natural soil found in the ground.

[0011] The term "engineered soil" refers to synthetic soil manufactured to have specific soil-like qualities referred to as engineered soil in this application. Engineered soil may contain soil in addition to other materials in order to create the desired profile.

[0012] The term "species" is relating to the three species subgroups of cannabis: Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis. For the purposes of this application, species may be used in reference to hybrids of the above three as well.

[0013] The term "THC" refers to the tetrahydrocannabinol molecule found in cannabis. It is often related to the psychoactive effects that are associated with cannabis. THC may refer to various types of THC, including delta 8 and delta 9. It may also be used interchangeably with THCa in the application.

[0014] The term "CBD" refers to the cannabidiol molecule found in cannabis. It counteracts the psychoactive effects of THC resulting in less of a "high" in high-CBD cannabis than in low-CBD cannabis. It may be used interchangeably with CBDa.

[0015] The term "CBC" refers to the Cannabichromene molecule found in cannabis. This molecule has been shown to have anti-depressant effects.

[0016] The term "CBG" refers to the Cannabigerol molecule found in cannabis. This molecule is an antagonist to the CB1 receptor and therefore a higher percentage creates less of the "high" effect in cannabis.

[0017] The term "CBN" refers to the cannabinol molecule found in cannabis. It has little to no psychoactive effect and generally exists in small amounts in cannabis plants.

[0018] The term "CBDV" refers to the Cannabidivarin molecule found in cannabis.

Similar to CBD, CBDV works as an antagonist to the CB1 receptors in the brain.

[0019] The term "CBDa" refers to Cannabidiolic acid in cannabis. CBDa can be converted into CBD when it is aged and heated.

[0020] The term "delta 9 THC" refers to a specific type of THC that has a higher psychoactive potency than delta 8 THC also found in lesser amounts in cannabis.

[0021] The term "THCa" refers to the tetrahydrocannabinolic acid found in cannabis.

THCa is found in living, raw plants and as the plant dries and/or is heated converts to

THC.

[0022] The term "delta 9 THCa" refers to a specific type of THCa that has a higher psychoactive potency than delta 8 THC, which is also found in lesser quantities in cannabis plants.

[0023] Cannabis sativa ("Sativa") is known for its high amount of THC, while only possessing a minimal amount of CBD. As outlined above, THC is the psychoactive component of Cannabis and therefore Sativa is much more related to the psychoactive or

"high" aspects of marijuana than other species. Sativa can cause users to be more energetic, sociable, creative, and cheerful.

[0024] Cannabis indica ("Indica"), also has more THC than CBD, but the ratios are closer and is therefore more commonly thought of in the medical marijuana aspect of cannabis. Considered by some to be a "nighttime" cannabis, Indica can cause users to be relaxed, calm, and sleepy.

[0025] Cannabis ruderalis ("Ruderalis") is thought by some to be a subgroup of Sativa, but for the purposes of this disclosure, Sativa and Ruderalis are treated as separate species. Ruderalis has a much lower THC amount than the other two plants and therefore does not have a very robust psychoactive "high." It also has a high amount of CBD, which makes it a good match for high THC species when creating hybrids.

Ruderalis plants are autoflowering, which means they grow according to their maturity, typically 21 to 30 days after a seed is planted, instead of growing in relation to the lighting cycles as Indica and Sativa both do.

[0026] II. Soil and Environment

[0027] Certain embodiments may comprise an amalgam of soil with water and light of day. This amalgam also may contain engineered water with a pH level of 5.5 to 7.5.

Additionally, an engineered environment may be created to house the amalgam. This engineered environment may be maintained at a temperature of 5 to 35 degrees Celsius. This engineered environment may comprise a humidity from 50% to 65%. This engineered environment may comprise a wind speed from 1 to 7 mph. This engineered environment may comprise a CO2 count of 1 100 to 2000 ppm. The engineered environment may include, but is not limited to, any combination of the above temperature, humidity, wind speed, and/or CO2 count. This amalgam may also be subjected to artificial light for 6 to 20 hours per day.

[0028] In other embodiments, an amalgam of engineered soil may comprise a pH level of 5.2 to 7.5. This amalgam also may contain engineered water with a pH level of 5.5 to 7.5. Additionally, an engineered environment may be created to house the amalgam. This engineered environment may comprise a temperature of 5 to 35 degrees Celsius. This engineered environment may comprise a humidity from 50% to 65%. This engineered environment may comprise a wind speed from 1 to 5 mph. This engineered environment may comprise a CO2 count of 1 100 to 2000 ppm. The engineered environment may include any combination of the above temperature, humidity, wind speed, and/or CO2 count. This amalgam may also be subjected to artificial light for 6 to 20 hours.

[0029] In certain embodiments, the engineered soil may contain from 600 to 800 pounds of organic potting soil and/or from 50 to 200 pounds of composted cow manure, which may be added to 50 to 100 pounds of organic worm casting. The engineered soil may also include one or more of the following: 10 pounds steamed bone meal, 10 pounds of bloom bat guano, 10 pounds of blood meal, 3 cups of azomite, 6 pounds of rock phosphate, 1.5 cups of Epson salt, 1 to 2 cups of sweet lime, 2 to 4 tablespoons of powdered humic acid, and/or 6 to 12 gallons of water with a pH level from 5.5 to 7.5. This soil may then be rested in the sun for 35 to 70 days.

[0030] III. Marijuana Hybrid

[0031] As discussed above, the species of cannabis are Sativa, Indica, and

Ruderalis. In certain embodiments, a hybrid of cannabis species may be used.

Additionally, there may additionally be some hybrid marijuana plants that are used to create subsequent, different hybrids.

[0032] Combination of Sativa and Indica: In one embodiment the var cultivar may comprise a hybrid possessing between .1 and 99 wt% Sativa and between .1 and 99 wt% of Indica. For example, in one embodiment the hybrid may contain 90 wt% Sativa and 10 wt% Indica. In another embodiment the hybrid may contain 25 wt% Sativa and 75 wt% Indica. As Sativa has higher THC levels, hybrids with higher Sativa ratios would contain a higher percentage of THC than those with higher amounts of Indica, which possesses higher levels of CBD. A sample embodiment may have ratios of both Sativa and Indica that result in an offsetting of the effects of THC and CBD. The resulting hybrid may have a THC level between 0 and 70% and a CBD level between 0 and 70%.

[0033] Combination of Sativa and Ruderalis: In some embodiments, the var cultivar may comprise a hybrid possessing between .1 and 99 wt% Sativa and between .1 and 99 wt% of Ruderalis. For example, in one embodiment the hybrid may contain 90 wt% Sativa and 10 wt% Ruderalis. In another embodiment the hybrid may contain 25 wt% Sativa and 75 wt% Ruderalis. As Sativa has higher THC levels, the hybrids with higher Sativa ratios may contain a higher percentage of THC than those with higher ratios of Ruderalis, which contains very little THC. A sample embodiment may have a similar ratio of both Sativa and Ruderalis in order to offset the effects of the other.

[0034] Combination of Indica and Ruderalis: In another embodiment, the var cultivar may comprise a hybrid possessing between .1 and 99 wt% Indica and between .1 and 99 wt% of Ruderalis. For example, in one embodiment the hybrid may contain 90 wt% Ruderalis and 10 wt% Indica. In another embodiment the hybrid may contain 25 wt% Ruderalis and 75 wt% Indica. As Indica only has moderate THC levels and Ruderalis has almost none, the hybrids of these two plants will have only a low to moderate amount of THC, while possessing a high CBD percentage.

[0035] Combination of all three species: In still another embodiment the var cultivar may comprise a hybrid possessing combination of between .1 and 99 wt% each of Indica, Ruderalis, and Sativa. For example, in one embodiment the hybrid may contain 70 wt% Sativa, 10 wt% Indica, and 20 wt% Ruderalis. In another embodiment the hybrid may contain 25 wt% Sativa, 70 wt% Indica, and 5 wt% Ruderalis. As Sativa has higher THC levels, Indica has some THC combined with CBD, and Ruderalis has minimal THC with a large amount of CBD, the ratio of THC and CBD may be vastly different based on the percentages of each plant. A sample embodiment may have similar amounts of Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis in order to offset the effects of each other.

[0036] In certain embodiments, the hybrid marijuana may be cultivated by cloning other species or hybrids together.

[0037] In other embodiments, the hybrid marijuana may be cultivated using seeds from other hybrid marijuana plants.

[0038] In some embodiments, the hybrid marijuana may be created by grafting or propagating multiple strains together. In this embodiment, there may be a "new stock" that is being grafted into a "mother stock." This may be done by taking a very sharp sterilized knife and scraping off the exterior bark of the new stock to expose the inner stem. Once the new stock is exposed, a notch may be cut into the mother plant in order for the new stock to be inserted at an angle between 0 and 90 degrees counterclockwise from the mother stock. After the new stock is inserted, the new stock may be bound to the mother stock using string or adhesives. Additional water may be introduced into the system and then a cling film may be wrapped around the two plants to retain the moisture. There may also be a small amount of growth left just above the incision placement on the mother plant to aid the growing and grafting of the plants.

[0039] In another embodiment, the hybrid marijuana may also be created by grafting multiple strains together. In this embodiment, there may be a "new stock" that is being grafted into a "receiving stock." This may be done by taking a very sharp sterilized knife and scraping off the exterior bark of the new stock to expose the inner stem. The receiving plant then may have a V shape cut into the top of one of its stem. The point of the new stock may then be gently pushed into the slot created in the receiving stock. The combined stocks may then be wrapped together to ensure that the two stocks are unlikely to separate. A flexible tie or similar adhesive that does not cut into the stem of either stock and ensures oxygen flow to both may be used to hold the two together initially. [0040] In still another embodiment, the hybrid marijuana may again be created by grafting multiple strains together. In this embodiment, there may be a "new stock" that is being grafted with a "mother stock." This may be done by taking a very sharp sterilized knife and slicing off a thin layer of bark along the stock of two different marijuana species. This may be done using two separate rooted plants or this may also be done by attaching the branch of one plant to the branch of a mother plant. In particular, either stock may be placed together so that the areas without bark are touching each other. The combined stocks may then be wrapped together to ensure that the two stocks are unlikely to separate. A flexible tie or similar adhesive that does not cut into the stem of either stock and ensures oxygen flow to both without breaking the bark may be used to hold the two together initially.

[0041] In some embodiments, the hybrid may be some combination of Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis. This hybrid may be allowed to grow for 1 month to 1 year from the time of planting or grafting and/or propagation. The size of the hybrid may be from .1 feet to 15 feet in height. The hybrid may weigh from .1 pounds to 500 pounds. This hybrid may be set in different shaped containers including round, square, rectangle, pentagon, or triangle. The container may be made of materials such as glass, plastic, fiberglass, metal, foam, or paper. This container may be from .1 inches to 5 feet in width, .1 inches to 5 feet in depth, and .1 inches to 15 feet in height.

[0042] In other embodiments, the hybrid may also be grown in the ground in either soil or engineered soil. It may be allowed to age from 1 month to 1 year from the time of planting. It may be .1 to 15 feet in height and have a weight from .1 to 500 pounds.

[0043] III. Processing of Hybrid Marijuana Plant

[0044] In some embodiments, the cannabis hybrid used may have a particle size from .2 microns to 750 microns. This may be achieved by trimming the cannabis for trichrome materials. This may also be achieved by treating the cannabis for trichrome materials, Iipid-based extracts, and/or synthesized fatty acids of a pharmaceutical composition using one or more of the following: alcohol, carbon dioxide, apple cider vinegar, water, freeze drying, ice water, or steam. The cannabis may be screened to remove residue or dregs using screens ranging from course (approximately 1000 microns) to fine (approximately 25 microns).

[0045] The hybrid plant may then be ball milled for .2 minutes to 6 hours at a temperature of 35 to 140 degrees Celsius until it has a particle size from .2 microns to 750 microns. The hybrid plant may also be cut, grated, blended, cooked, crunched, baked, compressed, pulverized, crushed, pressed, triturated, or grinded in order to achieve a particle size from .2 microns to 750 microns in size at a temperature from 35 to 140 degrees Celsius. The hybrid may also be converted to a gas or liquid as required for the targeted medical use. All of these actions may be performed on the hybrid plant before it is combined with other ingredients. All of these actions may also be performed on the hybrid plant after it is combined with other ingredients. Additionally, all of these actions may be performed both before and after the hybrid plant is combined with other ingredients.

[0046] IV. Combination of Marijuana Hybrid with other Ingredients

[0047] After the hybrid grows and is processed, it may be combined with other substances in order to produce a new substance, matter, compound, material, element, oil, or drink. This combination may be achieved by one or more of the following: cutting, grating, blending, cooking, crunching, brewing, compressing, milling, pulverize, crush, pressing, baking, triturate/trituration, crushing, grinding and mixing of various particle size and/or liquefied to achieve a blended cannabis compound.

[0048] Embodiments of the invention may combine the marijuana hybrid with various other compounds having both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical elements, substances, materials and compounds including but not limited to sterols, triglycerides, alkanes, myrcene, limonene, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, linalool, beta-caryophyllene, beta-ocimene, caryophyllene oxide, caryophyllene, terpinolene tinctures, terpene oil, humulene, cannabis plant waxes, omega-3 fatty acids, various plant oils (e.g., olive oil), alkanes, nitrogenous compounds, sugars, omega-6 fatty acids, amino acids (e.g., leucine, isoleucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, valine, histidine), aldehydes, lecithin, flour, omega-9 fatty acids, chromium picolinate, herbs, ketones, chocolate, pectin, flavonoids, glycosides, shortening, methylsulfonylmethane, coffee, spices, calcium ascorbate, vanilla, manganese proteinate, potassium bicarbonate, potassium sulfate, vitamin A, vitamin B-12, vitamin C, vitamin E, riboflavin, honey, glucosamine, eggs, chondroitin, maple syrup, carprofen (i.e. Rimadyl™ ), pigments, milk, butter, or water.
