One of the greatest results of cannabis legalization has been the implantation of current methods and technology from the scientific sector into the cannabis industry. That technology and human talent has driven great strides in cannabinoid production. One has been the incorporation of CBD into a water-soluble format, which allows greater integration into foods and beverages. Another has been the promising application in the incorporation of microbial cannabinoid expression vectors into the repertoire of CBD manufacturing processes. The challenges with the last methods include specific enzymes necessary to synthesize the highly hydrophobic cannabinoid molecules, but these issues are currently being overcome.
