    HELP! Amber trichomes vs CBD

    Here is a question that I’ve wondered about; When trichomes turn amber, as THC is transformed into other cannabinoids, what happens to CBD? I have a 1:1 THC:CBD plant (CBD Cream + Cheese) that is listed to produce 20%THC 18% CBD. As trichomes turn amber will this 18% be reduced? Or will it transform into some other cannabinod like the THC does?

    From WebMD-
    When THC components found in the cannabis plant age, they break down. This leads to the formation of a less potent cannabinoid called CBN. It's about 25% as effective as THC, which makes it a mild chemical. Unlike CBD, which is entirely non-psychoactive, CBN in larger doses can produce mild psychoactive reactions.Oct 29, 2021

    There are more than 60 cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis all of which activate and degrade at different rates depending on many factors including heat.
    Previous work has suggested that when CBD is exposed to an acidic environment, it degrades to Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other psychoactive cannabinoids.

    CBD: cannabidiol
    THC: tetrahydrocannabinol

    For example, CBD may cyclize to Δ9-THC under storage conditions, even though both compounds are further degraded to CBN, which in turn may exhibit psychotropic effects itself.

      BU2B, Thanks for the info. Even though I’m a bit concerned when there is a .nih.gov involved!

        From the info I can gather, CBD will slowly degrade to various isomers of THC, and that will then oxidize into CBN.

            sounds a lot like this: For example, CBD may cyclize to Δ9-THC under storage conditions, even though both compounds are further degraded to CBN
