Renowned Israeli chemist Dr. Raphael Mechoulam has done it again.
The trailblazing professor frequently referred to as the “Godfather of cannabis research” (although he shares that title with a variety of colleagues such as the late Dr. Lester Grinspoon), recently unveiled another discovery: cannabidiolic acid methyl ester (EPM301).
Dr. Mechoulam presented the now-patented compound in partnership with U.S.- based biotech company EPM.
“EPM developed a method to work with the original substances of cannabis,” the 88-year-old told Forbes. “So, while everybody is discussing THC and CBD, these cannabinoids are actually a secondary substance; they only appear later in the plant. Originally there is an acid that appears in the plant, and those acids are these mysterious worlds of compounds that are much more potent than cannabinoids.”
