About the talk
In the next 18 months, technology will leapfrog everything that’s in place today. It will move from horses to horsepower. It will transition from walking and paddling from New York City to Paris, to boarding a plane with a first class ticket in your hand. From plant to product, automation of processes, on-line monitoring of separation, and providing broad spectrum and contaminant-free ingredients; these once esoteric concepts are quickly coming into reality.
Communication-centric technology amazes me. It perpertually seeps into the facets of my daily life. I know very little of the electronics and software that is needed to support the computers, telephones, headsets, and software that I commonly depend on to write emails, plan business, listen to sports, and talk on the phone with Bluetooth earplugs.
Cannabis-centric technology has many parallels. There are exhibition halls filled with the latest “this is the BEST way” technology because of “x, y, z” in all industries. If you are like me in the communication-centric technology, then it must be overwhelming to your six senses and your common sense.
Extraction in 2021 will come down to a simple principle: formulation-centric. Formulation-centric is based on products that have meaningful impacts on your health, wellness, and lifestyle. It is about having ingredients that are needed for the products you are making or the products you are using.

I figured there'd be some stragglers this morning. But I think you know yesterday I was talking about education and how we educate people in the industry and I've themed my comments knowledge is the power that was all acquiring this knowledge. And then it's how we use this knowledge moving forward the kind of really help the industry evolved. So today I kind of want to be talking about the future and so before I get into my Soap Box this morning. I just wanted to again thank several people,
you know, I really wanted to specifically thank our Advisory Boards for Terpenes and Testing and Extraction Magazine. We've got a lot of really top-caliber people on our boards many of whom were here at this conference and I and I wanted to thank our sponsors again Vitalis Convectium Sasquash ACS Testing Labs Apex Supercritical and CMW media if you had a good time at the after-party last night be sure to thank Convectium for sponsoring that All right. And again thank all of you for becoming Vitalis is actually you will not miss their booth in the exhibit hall.
So one of the things that you know I want to ask all of you in kind of rhetorically is does this mean anything to you? When you see these kinds of charts with all these different marketing names for plants. Does it tell you anything so, you know just pulling some of them out but you know, what's Obama going to do for you? And there's one their code Obama or Michael Phelps, you know, I want to come up with one. I have me own names. I want to come up with Alaskan Thunder Trump when he's out of office, but when you look at these kinds of names and it's really meaningless
