LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Werc Shop, LLC (TWS), a leader in cannabis manufacturing and formulation technology, was recently granted a patent pertaining to diluents and enhancers used in vape products by the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). This patent specifically deals with the use of phytol and related compounds in vape formulations as a Native® diluting agent.
On the heels of this patent, TWS is pleased to announce the introduction of NexusTM 2.0—a formulation created specifically for cannabis vape products. Nexus 2.0 improves upon commonly used diluents for cannabis vapor applications by extending stability, enhancing performance, and improving inhalation safety. This formulation utilizes phytol, a terpene found naturally in cannabis, along with other terpenes and components also found in cannabis, delivering a fully Native end-product.
“This is an important advance in the science and formulation of vapor products,” says Jeffrey C. Raber, Ph.D., founder and CEO of The Werc Shop. “Many vape formulators have relied upon compounds like propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and polyethylene glycol (PEG) as thinning agents, but these compounds can form harmful byproducts when heated. We are proud to be able to offer this technology to improve vape product consistency and safety.”
This patent is the newest addition to the burgeoning, global portfolio of intellectual property created by The Werc Shop. Other areas of coverage include TRUE TO PLANT™ cannabis terpene compositions for vaporization, tinctures, topicals and edibles and cannabis metabolomic profiling methods, cannabis extraction and processing methods, and the controlled metered dosing of cannabinoids. This solid IP foundation built upon terpene-based compositions which are key to driving the entourage effect powers many of the leading vape brand formulations in the market today.
