Methods for making cannabinoids from bacteria, yeast or algae may become more effective than getting cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. If that becomes the case, how might that factor into federal legalization regulations? We discuss this with our guest, Rob Evans, Co-Founder of Purissima.
Synthetic cannabinoid production has been on people’s radar for some time. The question is, can it emerge as the dominant supplier of cannabinoids in the cannabis, hemp, pharma or international markets?
Purissima with Co-Founder, Chief Business and Strategy Officer Rob Evans today on Potling Bling with JJ Coombs only on The Cannabis Radio. Purissima is revolutionizing the way companies source and use plant-based ingredients, through the development and production of commercially viable, microbial biotechnology. Purissima’s mission is to provide the world access to high-quality, pure, safe, and sustainable ingredients for products that improve the quality of life for millions.
What if you could have all the benefits of plant-based ingredients without having to disrupt any plants? That’s the promise of Purissima. We’re replicating plants in the lab starting from where they originated in the first place: algae. From algae alone we then harvest powerful compounds typically found in other plants, unlocking a more sustainable and effective future for natural health and beauty.
Throughout history, humans have benefited from the healing powers of plants. This continues today as demand increases for plant-based medicines, supplements, cosmetics, and other consumer products. Unfortunately, the way industry accesses these natural ingredients often threatens their long-term existence and global biodiversity. It’s a paradox: the more humans value nature, the more humans may put nature at risk.
Inflammaging–the word used to describe the hybrid processes of inflammation and aging–is inevitable, but manageable. A new study from Cellular Goods sheds more light on why minor cannabinoids are the answer to youthful looking skin.
With algae alone, Purissima can harvest powerful compounds typically found in other plants. Through its patented microalgae fermentation process, Purissima’s platform can create an ingredient supply chain from a single cell, building a more sustainable and effective future for natural health and beauty.
