PAlcohol and Powdered Cannabis

The powdered alcohol utilizes chemicals known as cyclodextins to generate the highly concentrated and water-soluble granules. They are rounded structures of sugar molecules help to take up other compounds into their center. They are a molecule magnet, cyclodextrins absorb other molecules and assume their properties. These molecules can absorb up to 60% of their weight in alcohol while remaining in powdered form. It isn’t until you mix them with water that they dissolve.

THC can simply insert itself into the middle of a modified cyclodextrin complex, allowing it to be dissolve in water almost just as well as sugar on its own. Same like alcohol, THC and cyclodextrin combine to make a highly concentrated powder that can be dissolved in water. Cannabis patients are often challenged by the mediums they are offered for using cannabis.
