Mrs. Conaway came upon a most interesting article and why was it so interesting? Because anytime she finds something that includes the alteration of cannabis to fit a pharmaceutical need … there is room for concern.
The article to which she is referring involves a lot of unfamiliar words. Therefore, Mrs. Conaway has taken it upon herself to compile a small list of words that she deems necessary for you to know in order to be able to follow the article she is about to provide.
Actually, she has a link she is going to give to you. Her hope is that you understand that sometimes it’s not easy to give a brief and thorough synopsis of the article and it’s just best that you read it for yourself as it’s written.
This article had a word that Mrs. Conaway was not familiar with. Cannabosides. What the hell is that? A new plant? A new strain? A new ???? Well … it’s a molecule. It sounds more sinister than that however, we present you with this and will hope that you find the curiosity to open the link at at least read it once.
ANYTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH CANNABIS AND BIG PHARMA IS SUSPECT!
As a non-scientific person, Mrs. Conaway does have to keep a dictionary handy to understand the hard parts of these well written articles. To spare you the trouble she has written up this short helpful mini-dictionary for the above article.
Cannabosides: a molecule
Stevia plant enzyme: Can be used to create a new class of cannabinoid compounds
Prodrugs: A precursor (forerunner) of a drug. A prodrug must undergo chemical conversion by metabolic processes before becoming an active pharmacological agent.
Glycosylation: Is an important and highly regulated mechanism of secondary protein processing within cells. It plays a critical role in determining protein structure, function and stability. Structurally, glycosylation is known to affect the three dimensional configuration of proteins.
Nano-emulsions: An advanced mode of drug delivery system. Nano-sized emulsions, which are manufactured for improving the delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients.
Pharmaceutical Formulations: Pharmaceutical formulation is defined as the process in which different chemical substances are combined to produce a final medicinal product. The formulation studies involve developing a preparation of drug acceptable for patient.
Genetically engineer: (GE) foods that have had their DNA changed using genes from other plants or animals. Scientists take the gene for a desired trait in one plant or animal, and they insert that gene into a cell of another plant or animal.
Glycosylation: Glycosylation is a form of co-translational and post-translational modification.

My dear reader, I do hope you get the implications of any alteration of the plant Cannabis. It’s morally wrong to mess with it.
