Israel is a leader in medical cannabis research and has been since Dr. Raphael Mechoulam and his team isolated the first endocannabinoid in 1992. This discovery was the beginning of what might very well be the most crucial set of research ever performed. Research pertaining to the endocannabinoid system and cannabis in Israel has allowed for a re-awakening around the world regarding the benefits this plant has to offer.
Israel is home to a wealth of organizations dedicated to the exploration of cannabis; Eybna is one such company that’s leading the research on terpenes.
Eybna was founded in 2014 in Israel by Nadav Eyal and Benjamin Eytan. Last month, on November 15th, 2017, they announced a partnership that’s described as being “enormously significant for medical patients and cannabis consumers around the globe,” according to Jmîchaeĺe Keller, the president and CEO of Steep Hill Labs.
Steep Hill Labs is a leader in cannabis science and technology, with extensive experience in lab testing, genetics, remote testing and licensing. The partnership between Eybna and Steep Hill could revolutionize the way patients medicate with cannabis — not just in Israel, but around the world. Together, Eybna and Steep Hill will introduce Delta, a never-before-seen terpene-based product.
When asked why Delta was created, Nadav Eyal said, “Our clients, some of which own the biggest brands in the industry, hold very unique cannabis phenotypes with exclusive terpene and flavor profiles,” he added, “Over the past few years, we have received many requests for developing tailor-made terpene formulations of these unique phenotypes.”
Delta will allow product manufacturers and patients to replace the beneficial terpenes that are lost in the extraction process utilizing terpenes sourced from all-natural, non-cannabis related origins.
“By testing both the desired phenotype and the post-process oils, Eybna is able to produce customized terpene formulations to replace the exact ‘deltas’ lost in the extraction process,” said Eyal, “thus restoring the ‘whole plant experience’ in a consistent manner.”
