In general, my career has specialized in biotechnology, genomics and some computational biology. In graduate school and postdoc I researched the molecular evolution of natural products utilizing Terpenes (Terpenoids) as a model for study. My graduate work was focused on studying the horizontal gene transfer of the biosynthetic pathway of a terpene called trichothecenes, a toxic compound produced by a fungus that cause contamination to wheat crops. My postdoc research investigated the first gene in the pathway of many terpenes the terpene synthase and performed a comparative study of terpene synthases across a number of plants that sequence information was available for during that time. Susan is interested in utilizing her background in terpene and genomics to lead the way for precision medicine (sometimes called personalized medicine) in the cannabis industry. Aka utilizing genomics to predict how individuals will respond to various cannabinoids and terpene treatments and combinations.View the profile

About the talk
For some time, terpenes were considered waste molecules leftover after extracting CBD. Those times were short-lived, however, since there is an abundant wealth of scientific literature demonstrating the medicinal merit of terpenes like beta-caryophyllene, linalool, bisabolol, nerolidol, and more. For example, nerolidol and linalool are useful in treating anxiety, whereas beta-caryophyllene is useful in relieving pain. While some patients may benefit from more one-dimensional CBD products like isolate, the terpenes native to the plant can help augment the benefits of the extracted cannabinoid(s). They provide the exquisite bouquets that emanate from the plants, and drive the organoleptic properties that patients experience. This panel will discuss the importance of terpenes, and how adding these precious little molecules back in to CBD oils can differentiate a product to have a defined medical purpose.

Hello, everyone. Today we're going to be talking about terpenes and how they interact with cannabis therapies. I will start off with introductions. I'll start with myself and then pass it on to the rest of the panelists on my name is Tamar Wise. I'm the Owner of Wise Science Consulting a Botanical science consulting firm. I've been in the industry for about 11 years and I specialize in product formulation and development as well as infusions and then I will pass this on to Wendy. Hi, everyone, Wendy
Pagadian. I'm a registered nurse certified aromatherapist cannabis educator and owner of a topical company called Clean Coconut and we'll just start with us some basic interests and then we'll move on to our first topic. Greetings everyone. Can you hear me? My name is Susan Trapp and I'm part of a couple of startups. So one called EndoSyn, which is trying to harness your own internal and cannabinoids. Another company is called Terpedia. We're trying to collate information
on terpenes and thirdly another company called Trials Grab that's a platform for acted aggregation and analytics in the Cannabis industry. I have a background. I actually studied terpenes way before they were of interest in the Cannabis industry for my Ph.D. in my postdoc having nothing to
