The effects of plant chemistry on the various phytocannabinoid molecules including (THC) and (CBD)

Mendelian Segregation and Subsequent Recombination of Genes in Cannabacaea

Understanding the Parental Tetrads In the process of ‘gamete-genesis’ one diploid somatic cell splits during the 1st of two separate ‘meiosis’ events to create two daughter cells. The two daughter cells then divide again during the 2nd ‘meiosis’ event creating … Continue reading

Alzheimer Gene Expression

Generally, a mutation on the Beta-amyloid gene of Chromosome 21 is responsible for the inheritance of familial Alzheimer’s disease. Alternately, the so-called ‘pre-senilan’ gene that is switched on by the brain for the express purpose of digesting excess deposits of … Continue reading

Biosynthetic Pathways of Phytocannabinoids

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 … Continue reading
