Kush Bottles, Inc. (OTC:KSHB) is opening a product development and genomics lab in San Diego, California to develop innovative terpene formulations.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons. They are produced by plants to help them deter herbivores, attract predators of herbivores and attract pollinators. Although terpenes are found in many plants, they have garnered special attention in the cannabis space because terpenes are what give various marijuana strains their flavor and aroma and because they are believed to play a role in the entourage effect. The entourage effect is the benefit that comes from the whole plant as opposed to individual synthesized cannabinoids.
Kush Bottle's terpene lab and their new Director
To oversee the lab and Kush Bottle's development of terpene-based products the company has appointed Wayne Green as Director of Science & Innovation. Mr. Green will also be directing TerpsOnTerps.com, Kush Bottles' knowledge base and online marketplace for terpene-based products.
Wayne Green has more than 20-years’ experience in the biotechnology sector, where he developed natural products and genomic technologies with agricultural and pharmaceutical applications. He joins Kush Bottles' from Trinity Terpenes, a company he co-founded. At Trinity Terpenes he led the creation and development of authentic terpene profiles. Mr. Green also developed a terpene-based natural biocide, and led trials showcasing its potential to replace synthetic pesticides.
