Here you are speaking to yesterday's farmer and today's aspiring Pharmer.
Bioproducts can range from direct extraction of oils, starches, proteins,
selective mechanical or chemical fractionation, fibres and novel bioproducts
such as bio-cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals or biopharmaceuticals.
Secondary processing into biofuels, ethanol, methanol or fermentation
are all or will soon be a mainstream part of farming. These can be reformed
into hydrogen fromn regional tertiary processing sites. (This is
Saskatchewan's actual goal).
The tertiary processing to produce more exotic co-products such as nanotubes
or DNA, RNAi fragments or buckyballs is also an exciting prospect.
Just like the fun kids have looking at the honeycombs of wasp nests we may
soon do nano-bio-tech building blocks as bio-co-products.
So unlike a previous thread heralding the end of agriculture, I see
agriculture blossoming into
a myriad of new bio-based products.
You are talking the the guy with the strange idea the from a core business of
custom grown/processed hemp and marijuanas with compounded co-product
additions such as berberine from barberry , gotu kola bioproducts, mushroom
extracts one can build a
plant-based natural-health bio-product biopharmaceutical enterprise.
As well, this may begin a reversal of the depopulation of the rural areas as
intensive processing is equally easy to do in rural as in urban technology
Now for a bit of self agrandisement....................

Everybody here thinks that what you say explains the merits and supports the
issue and does so in
clear and easy to read way.
Thanks and when I get a supply of barberry bark I'll have to send you some.

I would like to ad my personal support and offer a few comments in
relation to the above request for support.I was pleased recently to
represent approximately 7000 grey
area medical cannabis users at a Health Canada planning meeting in Ottawa.
Over the next few
months with the introduction of new regulations, Canada will experience a
dramatic increase in the
number of medical users. Most of those chronically ill Canadian that have
belonged to "Compassion
Clubs" will be eligible to become legal. California, that has had these,
more inclusive regulations, and
have a similar population to that of Canada, has 80,000 registered medical
users. The new regulations
are driven by court decisions more than politics and will proceed,
regardless.The supply issue remains
the weakest part of the new Health Canada plan. I have grown cannabis with a
legal license for two
years. Far too many patients are being forced to grow. Patients wish to
remain in control of their
supply but are unable to grow in their own environment.Morris Johnson and
his team have a formula
that will work. Our company the Cannabis Research Institute Inc. have the
same vision and similar
initiatives. I urge you to fund this initiative and begin the establishment
of a regional cannabis supply
