Homework: Shown to the right is a 3-dimensional rendition of a THC molecule.
To create one, follow the plant’s process, and induce production of (THCAS) in the laboratory via reverse transcription.
First, see (1) “geranylpyrophosphate” + (2) “olivetolic acid” in the process [I] “geranylpyrophosphate:olivetolate geranyltransferase” (GOT) yields (3) CBG(V).
Next, by process [II] “CBC(V) synthase”, [III] “THC(V) synthase” or [IV] “CBD(V) synthase” yields (4) “CBC(V)”, or (5) “THC(V)” or (6) “CBD(V)” where R1 (= –C3H7) and R2 (= -C5H11) indicate the propyl and pentyl forms of the different metabolites.
