The Werc Shop Awarded Patent on Novel Cannabinoid and Terpene Coating Technology

The Werc Shop® (TWS), a leader in cannabis manufacturing and formulation technology, was recently provided issuance notification of U.S. patent 10,434,084 entitled “Cannabinoid Blends and Formulations, Related Methods” by the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO). This patent deals with the use of advanced mixing techniques to homogenously coat solid particles with cannabinoids, terpenes, or other substances.

On the heels of this patent, TWS is also pleased to announce the upcoming introduction of a line of powdered terpene blends tailored for various applications—from oral dosage forms to dispersible drink powders. This new line of products will help formulators integrate standardized cannabis Ensemble Effects into a greater variety of products without sacrificing consistency and quality assurance.

“This is a green-chemistry advance in the formulation of standardized and stabilized cannabinoid and terpene flowable powders,” says Jeffrey C. Raber, Ph.D., CEO of The Werc Shop. “To this point formulators have relied upon solvent-based processes in an attempt to uniformly coat fat-soluble substances onto solid particles, but these other approaches can lead to waste, residual solvent concerns, and stability shortfalls. We are proud to be able to offer this new solvent-free approach to improve the consistency and safety of cannabinoid- and terpene-based powders.”

This patent is the newest addition to the burgeoning, global portfolio of intellectual property created by The Werc Shop. Other areas of coverage include terpene compositions and metabolomic profiling, cannabis processing methods, and the metered dosing of cannabinoids.
