Hi ya’ll!  Graywolf here to welcome you to Skunk Pharm Research LLC!

Our new start up company and this site are just starting to come together, so please bear with us and we will do our best to make your time worthwhile, by sharing our research with you for free.

We derive our income from leasing equipment of our design to local OMMP service providers, and spend it researching new equipment, processes, and potions for use by medical marijuana patients.

We started the company because our cannabis research hobby was eating up all of our mad money allowances, and we will be happy to break even after taxes, so that we can again use our mad money for personal fun and games.

As part of our research, we supply pro bono potions to volunteer patient test panels with a variety of different medical complaints and to end of life patients requesting support to attempt a cannabis cure with gram a day doses.

We periodically conduct hands on extraction classes of our own, that thus far have been well received, and have agreed to start teaching show and tell extraction classes at other local groups.

We neither buy or sell cannabis products, and all of our donations come from our own strictly compliant garden, or from material donated for that purpose by other skunk pharmers, who meet our organic growing standards.

In our own garden, we are focusing on developing high CBD strains to make high dosages tolerable to more people, when delivered in a sublingual or oral format.  We currently have Cannatonic and another no name strain that look promising and ES will keep you up to date on that progress.

Skunk Pharm Research LLC was formed by us three equal partners, from the local skunk pharmers group, with no medical credentials beyond Red Cross first aid to any of our names.  We include one each retired electrical and manufacturing engineer, plus a bright young biochemistry student just getting started.

We have no illusions of any of our results ever being accepted by the medical profession, and in point of fact, that is not our goal or intent.

Our intent is to dramatically increase the number of MMJ patients running through the streets waving their arms and shouting out their miracle as they see it, and to send more to the voting place, with their eyes open, so that they can no longer be lied to.

The group made me Technical Director, because being older than dirt, I know enough to be dangerous on a wide range of subjects, though alas, I am the resident expert on absolutely nothing.

I mostly handle equipment and extraction process development.  I will freely share my progress on those projects with ya’ll, both here and on other forums where you see my Graywolf sobriquet.

Joe, is our R&D Director, dragging us old farts (or fartess) kicking and screaming into the 21st century.  He has not only helped us immeasurably with chemistry, but is leading our charge on tissue culture, synthetic seed development, and DNA sequencing.  He will be keeping ya’ll up to speed on his page as he progresses.

Eloquentsolution is our Marketing director in charge of purchasing, and our lease programs. She is also our master dirt pharmer, consistently pumping out our fat bottomed girls like clockwork and will be keeping ya’ll up to date on our master garden.

She also likes to play in the lab and developed both our Holy Anointing Oil oral, and topical medications, as well as other potions she will share with you.

More to come, so hope ya’ll will keep checking back.

Kohst ah Wa ya, aka Graywolf

    Is there any reason you can’t blast or pour off into a teflon coated pan?

    Here is a column chromatography method of extract separation. The mobile phase next time will be adjusted slightly more polar, but this method produces very pure extract. Simple time lapse shown. Air assist.

    A vid and a vape hit dedicated and inspired by skunkpharm! This vape is for you!

    Here is a short vid I did this morning explaining one of the first steps in refining extracts into a more purified and enjoyable experience. No special equipment required, just some isopropyl alcohol, water, a bit of heat, and know-how. I do use a vac chamber and $65 centrifuge. How about a collaborative feature? I can show Skunkpharm guys how to do this, and see what the boys think of vaping the red stuff. yum yum yum

    It is not overly complex but there are too many steps for a short vid.

    Nearly the final step in creating uber high potency hash oil from dispensary extracts.

    This stuff is absolutely yummy.

Anyway I gave family now that are wanting the co2 extracts made from our special materials I would like to know if I could find out about when you may teach the process again and if I would need top pay a cost what it would be and what it would entail thx Arjuna Fox

    I have been trying to perfect a tincture that is high in CBD’s but lower in THC, for controlling pain. I am trying to create a tincture that will not get you very high, if you use it. I have good buds and concentrate for that, this is just for pain. What is a strain of cannabis that is high in CBD’s that are found in Michigan, that is effective for pain relief? The majority of the strains I find are just grown or available , out west.

    What about using material that has already been blasted (Butane blast). It was only blasted once, and then dried. I still want to extract the CBD’s out of this to make a tincture. Sounds like there is still CBD’s and THC in this product to extract, shouldn’t it have less THC after it has been used? Can CBD’s and THC be separated, or not?
    What is better to use to extract the CBD’s in this material?
    Should I use EverClear or a high proof liquor, or an EVO or oil to remove what is left?
    After straining should I heat or freeze the liquid that comes off?
    Should it be decarboxylated or not?
    I am trying to get a tincture that doesn’t taste like crap. I used honey on my last batch, it got us high, but it still tasted bad. Your advice on how to remove the Chlorophyll will probably help that problem. What is the fastest way to remove the chlorophyll taste?

    Any advice you can send me or reply will be appreciated. Thanks for your efforts to help a growing community of those wanting to eliminate opioids for pain, and find a healthier alternative to pain management. That is my goal!

    My friend has a CO2 tank and a regulator. I have a tube. Can I use CO2 to extra three a tube into a Pyrex the same way I would BHO?

    My husband has colon cancer that has reacurred 2 times . He has had multiple colon resections and has a colstomy now. He has been through chemo twice and they are talking about a 3rd time . We do not live in a state that has legalized . I have found a source of shatter that I can get . But need to know how to make it ingestible ?


    • Hi Deborah. I don’t know anything about shatter but I’d recommend buying high strength (at least 7% CBD content, or even higher %CBD if you can afford it) CBD hemp (Cannabidiol) oil, available widely online. You just put a few drops under your tongue. CBD hemp products are legal as they’re not psychoactive like THC is. CBD oil is the one used for cancer usually. It’s amazing to read all the success stories online with folks helping themselves without needingbthe (usually harmful) doctors medicines. I have auto-immune rheumatoid arthritis and have just started making my first ever batch of oil using the oil extraction method outlined on this fabulous site, from a high strength loose hemp that i bought on Amazon. It’s marketed as hemp tea usually and totally legal. i hope this helps and I really hope you can help your husband❤ xx Tania xx

    I hope I reach you in good health. This is Christopher Miller Cofounder of Golden Xtrx, Proper, and Left Coast Connection here is Portland, Oregon. We have a couple Bho extractors and few C02 machines. We are currently a public company in Canada but we are Oregonians. I have a great deal of respect for your organization and what you do to preserve knowledge through open communication, so I hope this is ok contact you here since I have lost the number that I had. I was informed by a colleague at Welch you are developing or may have already developed a new hydrocarbon pump for operating BHO extractors. If so I am vary interested in speaking with someone who can further assist me. As we currently operate Haskel pumps and the Cmop explosion proof units. I have satisfied with these units but John sounded vary excited about what you have so please contact me as soon as possible so I may discus this further.

    I am in the market for consulting regarding the building of my new extractor and would love to pay the market price for a couple hours to pock your brains. I live in Trinidad California and can travel wherever may be convenient to meet. Please call me asap. Thank you, and have a grateful day.

    Hello good people,
    I have significant low back pain after a “failed” spinal fusion. I live in North Carolina and have traveled to California and Colorado to try to find medical marijuana that will help me. But after all my research and trying everything I’ve found gives too much “head high” and not enough “body high” (for the pain). I don’t know how to attain high CBD strains in NC so I imagine it would be easiest for me to buy something from another state. Could anyone share where I could go or what I could do to try and get some good medicine? Would Skunk Pharm Research like a volunteer?🙂

    Thanks for allowing me to share, Ciao

  26. Hi hon! Granny Storm Crow here! The new July 2015 List is out! 2,420 pages of links, plus a few more for a mini-dictionary to help folks through the studies. Drop me an email to get your copy.

    A friend of mine is getting the new List up on Facebook, and should have it ready soon.

    “Old Hippie” just put up a downloadable copy of the List at his “Beyond Chrinic” site.

    Another way to get the List is to run a search for “ABSOLUTELY FREE! GRANNY STORM CROW’S LIST! 2000+ PAGES!”. That will take you to a forum post of mine. Just follow the easy instructions to get a free copy of the List.

    Hi folks,
    I am an HIV patient arriving to Portland because of what Wa. state is doing to medical cannabis. I was undiagnosed for 10 years until 18 months ago so the damage is plenty. I met a woman today who thought you folks could help me out.
    One of my goals is to eventually produce my own oil and, hopefully, enough to give to those in need. Particularly in those parts of the country where it is still illegal. For me this is civil disobedience. The more I learn about the effect of cannabis the angrier I am that it has been kept from us.
    I am also looking for trim work if You know of any. Hope to hear from you soon!
    Thank you,
    Lauren Walker

    Hi, I would love to help you with your research as I am a biochemist with some experience. I am lost in the current scientific environment. So if you need to partner up with someone who knows the ins and outs of the scientific business. Give me a shout out and we can discuss this further.


  29. Posted by Tory ( Mountaintop Labs ) on July 25, 2015 at 10:48 PM

    I’ve been running my business for a year and would deeply appreciate some guidence. I saw you mention classes and was wondering what I have to do to obtain knowledge from your company. I’ve read plenty of threads posted by your site and would like to get some hands on teachings. Let me know when and where and I will come.

    Thank you for everything you guys are and do..

    Dear skunkpharma

    Hope your well and your business is going good, I would much appreciate an opportunity to have a chat with you guys in regards to a possible business opportunity, I look forward to speaking with you

    Hi I was just wondering if I follow your recipes for your holy shit oil just using what grams you have listed for everything and not doubling it how much oil would it make? I’m on a budget right now and before I spend 2-300 on bho I want to find out how much it will make and if the results be different if I double all the ingredients expect how much bho I use I have psoriasis and ankyloosingspondilitis ( form of arthritis that causes cronic influmation in all my joints ) so I was just trying to get some advised on that


  32. I’ve been seeing a lot of info about “dewaxing” columns in closed loop extractions systems. Would you be able to explain how these function to me, Graywolf?



  33. Posted by Alex on July 13, 2015 at 9:25 PM

    Hey guys & gals
    I’ve been open blasting outside using lots of air circulation. I feel like I could process more, be more efficient and safer with a closed loop system. I’m no expert but have taught general chemistry for 5 yrs, so have a little science understanding.

    I’m here in Portland and am a OMMP card holder, with a bunch of trim to process. Looked you guys up at your sandy address, found the UPS.

    Do you guys rent equipment? Do runs for people? Sell eqipment? Available to talk with in person?



  36. Posted by Hank on June 24, 2015 at 6:08 PM


    Is there any possibility to work for you? I live in Portland and would like to be a part of your team. I’ve worked in electrical construction (UL Industrial Controls) for 20yrs. I would be happy to provide you with my resume for consideration.

  39. Posted by tim roethler on June 8, 2015 at 1:53 PM

    First I want to thank you for all the info great info freely given on this site, I will be attending the 6/26 terpinator class , I am stepping up from the terp III, (what a great machine) I have been using a promaxx 6000 up until today, she came apart this morning and contaminated everything. What is the best recovery pump for this newer bigger unit ? I would like to keep the price under say 1200 if possible


    • Ummmm, not aware of any Skunk Pharm Research classes scheduled this year so far, so you might check the year on the schedule.

      Specialized Formulations does give public and private classes using the Terpenator, so is always a resource.

      Under $1200 eliminates the Haskel and the CM EP OL, which are the two rated for R-600, which I currently recommend.

      Of the non R-600 refrigerant recovery pumps being used for the purpose, I would say that the CPS TR-21 with a 3/8″ X 50′ stainless coil in an ice bath for a heat exchanger, has the best overall performance/maintenance record. Sadly the sparkless TRS-21 struggles with infant mortality in the field.

      Using a non rated pump works, and is something we have done with provisions and care and without incident, but is not something we endorse or recommend, so you do so at your own risk.


  40. Posted by Aaron Abgar on May 19, 2015 at 12:33 PM

    Was looking for some consultancy. if you guys provide those services. Please let me know


  41. Have you guys ever thought about developing simple effective ways to extract other plant medicine such as sage or cedar of copal or mimosa hostiliss? I do realize that there are already established ways of extracting the medicine from these plants but what I like about your method is that it is essentially a one step process and if your carefull there should be little to contact with volatile and/or toxic chemicals. With out going on and on for ever with nerd talk it seems to me that a simple, safe, and pretty much turn-key set up would greatly empower the patient which is what this movement is all about!! Think about it guys…. Marijuana is a great medicine but so are many other plants. Imagine if we could offer something to the world were a patient could make there own medicines at home!! That would greatly empower them and increase their experience of freedom. We are all totally free but our experience of freedom can be affected by outside sources. Umm any way I know I babble a lot. Plz reply to my e-mail because I will not remember to check this website every day. My email address is crazynate386@gmail.com but for some reason your website dose not recognize this as a valid e-mail adress

    Hey guys, just started up a lab and would love to see things from another’s stand point. Plz contact me with class schedules at your earliest convenience. Thx Matt


  43. Hey there, I don’t want to spam your page, but I just wanted to let you know that our company creates plant tissue culture media, and specializes in custom media for companies, from startups to giant micropropagation labs and research facilities. I just wanted to send a friendly message your way and see if there was anything I could provide for you to make your research go more smoothly. We have quite a few cannabis oriented customers, and I just wanted to reach out and see if you would be interested. I love your blog and everything your doing is very interesting. I look forward to seeing your future posts. Feel free to contact me with and questions or feedback. Keep up the awesome work!

      Cat’s Meow, I am the science management director for multiple New York based surgery and wellness centers. Our corporation includes a renowned cancer research team in the process of applying for a New York State Registered Organization License. Medicinal compounds will be limited to five different strain extractions, using CO2 and Alcohol only. Although the New York State strain limitations are too restrictive to include tissue culture research, other states we are involved in, need to development methods for those laboratories. At present, when I broach the subject of tissue culture pertaining to this industry, I feel as though I am speaking Latin. How can I contact you for information about your tissue culture media and other science that may be pertinent, and of value to our organization? Thanks!

    Great work!
    After losing a loved one to mental illness, I am on a mission to locate people who may have had success with cannabis treatment of various mental disorders. GW pharma has a cannabis strain in the pipeline, but I’m sure will be pricey. Any info would be so appreciated. My motive is compassion towards others’ suffering.



  46. I just have to say what you guys are doing here is amazing. Actually, that is an understatement, this is life changing! From the bottom of my heart, and from the patients in the New York who have benefited from this research, thank you. From the HAO thread to DIY CO2, we have learned so much. I can’t thank you guys enough.
    Currently, I am battling the worse bacterial infection I can remember; I probably have to go back 22 years since I felt this sick. Last night I mixed HAO with bath salts and a ACDC ethanol extract and peppermint oil. The results were so amazing I repeated today. Lymph nodes are 50% less swollen and my lungs feel much better. In combination with probiotics from Russia and Japan, I am finally beating this bug; something I could not do without you guys! I have seen two doctors and all said just let it pass. I will keep experimenting with the cannabis oil to see how this goes. I am refraining from ingesting for now because I need to keep an eye on my pregnant wife and baby. Tomorrow, I may start one drop of ACDC extract under the tongue and will go from there.
