September 20, 2018 / TheNewswire / Vancouver, BC – AREV Brands International Ltd. (CSE: AREV), is pleased to announce that it has reached a major milestone in its joint development project with Alternative Extracts Inc. The research work conducted was with oil based extracts from non regulated sources that carry a wide variety of terpenes and related compounds responsible for aroma and flavour. Terpene synthesis is vital for cannabinoid synthesis as it provides the GPP molecule for CBGA synthesis.
The company through its proprietary extraction methods has discovered an efficient way to infuse aqueous solutions with oil based extracts that include some flavonoids and terpenes. These extracts were infused in non-alcoholic beer, ciders, wine, spritzers, fruit juices and maple water.
The materials used include Hops, Frankincense, Myrrh, Pepper, Lemon Balm, Lavender, Tea Tree oil, Turmeric and oil from hemp seeds. The company has sampled enough material to be confident that
it can extract virtually any lipid based terpene and infuse it into an aqueous based product.
These materials contain many valuable terpenes that affect mood and experience when combined with THC. Many of these terpenes are destroyed in the decarboxylation process that is performed to activate THC.
AREV can now preserve the valuable terpenes found in medicinal plants while also having the potential to serve as a natural preservative. This is key in non alcoholic beers, which have a short shelf life, and will be of use in other AREV products. We can also create flavour profiles with the flavonoid and terpene extracts and in some cases amplify the entourage effect.
AREV invites any Health Canada Licensed Producer or beverage manufacturers to contact the company for further discussions on this breakthrough that will dramatically reduce their product development cycle.
Mike Withrow commented "We are ecstatic about this discovery and how the purity and quality of the extracts from the extraction system are performing. It is potentially a game changer for those incumbents in the cannabis and beverage space."
Dr. Adrian Wade, Chief Science Officer, of Alternative Extracts Inc. commented "AREV’s extractors produce the highest quality products, including terpenes. Terpenes provide distinctive aromas in plants and play an important role in an increasing number of health food products. The ability to readily infuse pure, naturally sourced terpenes into beverages provides the consumer with aromas that are closest to nature."
