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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Hi! I live in France where THC weed is illegal but we have CBD flowers…from industrial hemp…most of the outdoor taste and smell like hay but recently there is indoor who taste and smell like weed should…it is pleasant to smoke!
    I am not sure I get everything but if they really know a way to transform CBD into THC and if it is doable at home…well they gonna make huge money here in Europe as long as THC will remain illegal…and I would love to make a partnership with them!
    I hope you will keep an eye on it!
    Have a lifted one and lots of good vibes from France growers family

  6. Only matters to people trying to make money off it. As a smoker I don't want converted distillate garbage I want real thc9. These clowns are hotdog water hustlers. Go green or go greed?!

  7. CBD becomes THC late in the flowers lifespan…just let the flower bloom longer…As well, a CBD flower will become a THC plant the longer the genetics can hybridize…this occurs naturally in nature…you guys are in for the big money grab, step away from the lab, you're playing with fire, let the plant do what it does naturally…btw, if you harvest early, your flower is mostly CBD…
