About

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.

    wrong my friends, you teach how to infringe a no no as you offer it under free speech, but when used this way you infringe.I don’t want to stifle this business, but if you force me I will use all remedies available to me. you bring damage to my patent and use this platform to do so and you have been compliant to make of the open blasting help you offered causing many horrible accidents, you kept giving this info even though it was blowing folks up. finally you stopped telling people how to open blast but you are part and parcel to each explosion, I spent the last 15 years telling people to not do it and posted long back how to avoid it, but you used this board to continue using you FREE SPEECH, to do so, it is all recorded and my lawyers took a long look at it and tell me you are liable for much.and the info you falsely spread, so if you want to keep it up, I will introduce you to them, but have lots of cash, because you will loose all of it. or you can stop now and apologise to the readers and others who have followed you foolish advice and stop making them into an experiment. My patent is worldwide and covers all of these infringers and their helpers and would be self appointed geniuses who claim they know what they are doing. I hope you can see that this is not a threat,but rather good advice , The feds told me videos showing people doing it by partially open garage doors shook them. i have been working with the US gov and state governments to implement the right rules and safety operations thru training and they are happy to see me and understand what I stand for in safety and the correct way to use it. there will be a new rule concerning operators of these systems that will bring safety to the table and posting of the nature you do will be disallowed when causing an accident. its a bit like you go to the forest, have a fine time build a campfire use it and put it out and then leave, a wind comes along and the fire starts up again, how would you know that, so a forest fire starts, would you even know you did it?
    you are starting the fires friends using free speech.

      Your use of the First Ammendment to threaten a business with loss is protected speech. I bought a Harley and was informed it was dangerous. I rode anyway and got hurt.

      Whose fault was it? Mine? The salesman? The deer? The rain? Who?

      You suggest that some nefarious group is teaching people how to harm themselves. Where is your data? Can you be sure that the accidents we hear about are not accidents that any human would make anyway? Do you condemn a hunters safety course that teaches marksmanship and weapon handling as murderers, when the inevitable hunting accident happens? Are those who taught the course responsible for the mistakes of their students in the future?

      If they are, then there are a lot of people to condemn who just want to participate in life. It is hard for me to imagine any legal team you might have hire would advise you to post such ridiculous and flamatory language.

      Why would you suggest that an LLC need a bunch of money to defend against lawsuit, when all they have to do is disaolve the LLC and avoid anything you can muster? The people arent hurting anyone any more than you are. Who are you anyway?..?

        you deny culpability across the board, ok you dissolve it, but you personally are liable, if you want that lesson carry on. you present no safety course here rather you present methods that bring harm to people that damages my business reputation and bring irreparable harm to my work. your arguments fail and all the proof I need is right here as it will be presented in court. time after time even though people had explosions, you kept giving that same bad advice disguised as “SAFETY COURSE” bullshit. you made money using my work as a starting point. Even tho people were killing them selves, if GM made a bad safety switch their cars and someone got killed, by your philosophy, too bad they should have known better. your a real piece of work pal. If anyone reading this board thinks you are doing a service, better think again, its all old wives tales and theory or imaginings. Try getting real like the blown up folks are now. I will answer any questions the real people have about it wit6h the real Facts to help them know just how bullshit this board is. and how you used them in a grand experiment. and My legal guys say you better wake up to how things work. I and concerned people are starting a Union, the focus of it will be safety and education for operators, we will certify and train them on proper sue of patent and machine without harm to them selves or ecosystem. something you have failed miserably so far. If you give a hand gun to a 8 year old and he shoots some one are you responsible, according to you no eh?

            …and after careful study they concluded that you needed to launch a personal attack on me, or did you decide without legal counsel to do this on your own lolz?

            I personally have never extracted anything that I can remember out of marijuanna. I extracted the virginity out of my first girlfriend after puffing marijuanna but that was my fault and not my dealers fault.

            I think you have launched your torpedo at the wrong cruiser lolz. I am simply pointing out something obvious – unless you are threatening to break legs then the only recourse you have is punitive damages = $$$.

            Let us say you decided to go after me personally for some reason and sued me. I would not defend and allow you to win the suit. Want to know why?

            Because both of my pensions are federal compensation benefits. These are untouchable through any court action. They cannot be garnished. You might have a ten million dollar judgement against me, but if I choose not to pay there is nothing you could legally take from me. I own nothing. I rent.

            So, in the spirit of the flaming thread here, let us play this idea out. Have the donut committee getting stoned on your sofa download this post and study out a way and figure to threaten a man who you cannot take anything from and who is well off in life.

            Then load up a dab like I am doing, and inhale. i will as soon as I set the iPad down. We are brothers in life though not on this issue.

      Any patent is irrelevant if you have not vigorously defended it. I have experience with patents in an R & D environment. The VAST majority of patents obtained are not defended at all. When General Motors gets a patent on a door handle they have no intentions of ever trying to stop others from using their idea. They get the patent simple to stop others from suing GM over trivial bullshit like this.

      A patent is an insurance policy, because if you truly wish to go after somebody like skunkpharm for a perceived violation, then it takes enormous legal resources to do it. Then, on the off chance that you prevail, which turnip are you going to squeeze for blood? Did you know 99% of judgements never get paid? The LLC just folds, or the corporate division folds. So even if you were correct, how are you gonna pay the legal costs to prove it, and once proven how are you gonna collect?

      Patents are misunderstood because of stereotypes. The odd inventor is not the common user of patent. Patent can ONLY really protect a person from others pushing in on their territory. It can never be defended by somebody who is not actively using the patent, and then only if the patent holder proves that the product protected has a path to market.

      We do not protect monopolies in this country and a patent is not a monopoly on knowledge.

          Indra, although I completely agree with you I think you are not realizing you are developing material and evidence that can be used against you if you were to bring a civil action against these peaceful fellas that are pretty much minding their own business, they are only sharing their own experiences, I developed the same exact extraction apparattus using tri clamp style ferrules 10 years ago and 5 years later I see other people doing the same thing, this form of essential oil extraction has been around for decades and has been used in many industrial applications if you claim to have a patent from 2012 I can promise you that it would easily be found that your patent is not an original idea because when I did it 10 years ago I got the idea from a patent that already existed, I owned a brewery and was aware of the tri clamp fittings that would make removing extract possible without dealing with threads which can be a sticky situation. From what you say you are making big moves in the industry on a commercial level, why are you bothering with skunkpharm? Legal threats and banter is not what the gray Woolf spends his time maintaining this site for so please don’t use it as such because I was having a good day until I read your posts. If you have legal action then take it indara you seem pretty intelligent and should know you are wasting your own time posting threats and arguments rather than putting on your nikes and running to the courthouse so you can just do it.

            yes? my first patent was in 1978 and has been built on you probably stole the idea from my first patents. again you seem unable to read, I want these so called peaceful folks to stop abusing my property. you think I should be polite to thieves?
            I left these people alone for years, I asked many times to stop it, I have been busy making money and why not it is my original work not as you suggest, my guys spent over a million bucks on it so you can believe it is rock solid. I know these guys have nothing I got them identified long back and could publish their names and all info on them, no LLC is allowed without disclosure of owners. Now I asked them to cease with respect to my property and I get rebuttals and told to fuck off. My response to this will be to spend some money so they get it. I won’t even notice it, but they will, they think because of the LLC they can’t be gotten to, but trust me that is a fallacy
            if they are so innocent, let them retract all that info and apologise to readers for letting out bad info and other peoples work, publish it and apologise to me. and stop with the free speech defense, it does not apply when you cause harm by it.

    I am experimenting purifying and clarifying my extraction using Fuller’s earth bentonite clay also known as bleaching clay I use old dirty outdoor trim for my extractions and it comes out almost black after soaking the extraction dissolved in ethanol in the Fuller’s earth for 1 hour the extraction has been reduced by quite a few shades this is the same product that use to clarify or bleach vegetable oil just want to throw it out there hopefully somebody might have some knowledge in dialing this technique in because it is very useful

    Reply

    • Posted by Sheldon on September 3, 2016 at 2:01 PM

      One of my main issues is after filtering the Fuller’s earth out the solution is still cloudy as if there were dust from the clay I’m using a very fine lab filter and a buchner funnel there must be a way to get this dust out of the solution they’re able to remove the dust from vegetable oil

      Reply

      • Posted by redturtle984 on September 4, 2016 at 12:47 AM

        if it is dust then your filter would catch it. The stuff you see is miscible. I see this cloudiness all the time using iso washes. If you evaporate the alcohol off of the solution using adiabatic (fan only) evaporation then likely the white cloudy stuff will slowly form its own immiscible layer in the solution and is mostly water. This normally pours off easily as the extract will not mix with. The more often you do this wash, the more clear the product will be.

        Alpha pinene is the most prevelant terp I run into that needs to be removed and it is partially miscible in water. There is always water present in alcohol and the pinene and other water miscible components can be pulled out this way. When using iso to wash I intentionally dilute down to 70% iso/water and evap off this way which pulls out significant contaminates. The polarity of iso is perfect and lands it right in the middle of what I am after, plus at 70/30 (rubbing alcohol) it is cheap. A small qty of acetone as a dispersant in the water/iso mix will easily separate to nearly clear any of the black starting material I have started with as well.

        To purge, I place washed extract in oven in a petri dish at 300F until bubbling stops, then into the vac chamber for deep vac. Without winterizing and a filtering product the extracted oil gets refined to clear this way although it does take more to purge the final product. I also use a technique that volitizes the Volitile Organic Compounds (terps) using flame, but have been asked not to post descriptions of that process on this forum.

        Be mindful of safety; in as little as eight ounces taken internally isopropyl alcohol can kill. Acetone and iso both are used in household products and neither have been shown carcinogenic. Neither have long term exposure risks known. Acetone is known as finger polish remover and can be used on the skin without event. Both substances are flammable.

          I know you made a popular product using iso to turn the extract red but I was looking for someone with knowledge in corn/veg oil processing using bentonite which is in no way miscible. It is an absorbent similar to carbon or zeolite but also much different. I think everything you’re doing with ISO can also be done with food-grad products which is my key focus in working with extracts.

          • Posted by redturtle984 on September 5, 2016 at 2:06 AM

            I understand your goals. I will share though a misconception about how red oil is made from extract – the iso facilitates the process but it can also be done through very slow cooking.

            Maybe this helps. I have taken an ounce or so and simply allowed it to heat slowly. After it decarboxylates the first visible fume that rises is a menthol/pine scent that burns the nose when inhaled closely. I found that allowing the extract to boil this top fraction off, usually about 10% of the total, begins to clarify it as well. This is before any dewaxing.

            The goal of processing his is to make it more pleasant to ingest/inhale. In raw form extract is loaded with Volitile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are hydrocarbons that we call terpenes. Other VOCs are present in raw extract as well. THC is not a hydrocarbon and is not a VOC. Fully stabilized, even with waxes left in, extract should not pop or sputter or really even fume much with the VOCs removed and when a torch flame is held to the extract.

            My hunch is that you can achieve your goals if you develope a cooking process. Dispense with the idea that heat destroys THC. Even clarifying the cloudiness you see can be accomplished with slow,application of heat. When you heat your solvent/extract mix you will see proteins roll out of solution briefly, shrivel up and turn black, then get reabsorbed back into solution. The sediment drops out and voila! It clarifies a bit. Keep in mind that irregardless of the type of alcohol you select as a solvent, your end product will have water content left in it.

            Good luck.

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

    Reply

    • Teflon is relatively inert passing through the digestive system, but not so when it is incinerated.

      When burned or heated to high temperatures, one of it’s decomposition products, is hydrofluoric acid, which is strong enough to eat glass, sooooo I would personally not be inclined to do so.

      I use teflon paper (PTFE) as the carrier for my oil in my Vapir One vaporizor. Teflon will not begin to decompose until 500F and my tests at 575F in my oven of the paper did result in some decomposition (browning at the edges) but not much. The paper is still usable.

      My Vaporizer vapes the cleanest when I use teflon (PTFE) to dab the oil onto rather than metal fibers. The setting in my vape only goes to 400F and after a few years I mostly just have to clean the teflon paper once in a while. The temps needed to decompose PTFE into gaseous toxins are much higher than I ever use in processing extracts.

      PTFE is commonly used in chemistry equipment.

    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!

        Its not that there is no help for pain management here that’s what cannabinoids do so that is the principal goal in making use of the info here. The problem is the complexity of the reply to your questions. To separate cbd from other cannabinoids would take lab equipment and extensive knowledge in organic chemistry and chromatography. To make a tincture that tastes decent do a butane extraction then dissolve that extraction in ethanol and filter it you can freeze it to winterize it before filtering if you desire after it’s filtered vacuum distill or naturally evaporate the ethanol off your extraction then dissolve that extraction in vegetable glycerin and your favorite flavoring of your choice you can mix torani syrups in the vegetable glycerin for flavor leave a little alcohol in your extraction so it will dissolve in the vegetable glycerin if your extraction is too solid you would have to buy a homogenizer to mix it with the glycerin all this information is on this site you just have to look around

    • 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

    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

    Greetings, brothers. I’m trying to reach JD. I’m an old OGF compatriot of his from back in the day. If this is indeed his organization, could you have him email me? I’d appreciate it greatly.

    Thanks.

  30. 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.

    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

    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?

    Thanks
    Matt

    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.

  45. 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

      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.

    Peace.

  50. 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.
