MACE v.365

Every quarter MACE Media Group gives back by coordinating MACE v.365 objectives which brings their family of cannabinoid-based publications together to present a day of extensive, complimentary, webinars. These webinars are presented by Terpenes & Testing Magazine, Extraction Magazine, CBD Health & Wellness Magazine and Delta 8 Magazine. The publications have deep roots and respect for the innovative content being driven from their popular news sites. Join us as we present to you our hand-picked speakers that are, in our opinion, some of the best in the industry. Grab a coffee, your headphones and laptop… oh, and a pad and pen. You’ll take a ton of notes. A special thank you to our speakers for this event. We couldn’t do any of this without you.
8:55AM to 9:00AM

Opening by Jason Lupoi, Ph.D., Editor of Terpenes & Testing Magazine and Extraction Magazine


Jason S. Lupoi, PhD

9:00AM to 9:30AM

Good is Not a Number

Driving without a dashboard? Cooking without measuring cup or control of oven?

Processing without without knowing the concentration and the amount of material that you have collected or left
behind is critical to your productivity and profitability.

Dr. Wiliam Vizuete, CSO, and Marc Byers, President Byers Scientific

Byers Scientific is made up of three divisions under one roof – Byers Mitigation Technologies, Byers Emissions
Analysis and Byers Intelligent Systems. The research division, Byers Emissions Analysis (BEA), identifies, measures,
models and assesses cannabis plant emissions serving operators, regulators and communities. Through his work with
BEA, William Vizuete, PhD. seeks to answer the common questions surrounding cannabis plant emissions, including
BVOCs and other odor-causing compounds, at commercial cultivation sites, their impact on air quality and/or
community odor issues as well as terpene drift and potential of impacting neighboring agriculture. BEA provides
critical site-specific emission factor data to empower informed decisions and offer solutions to odor and emission
challenges with an emphasis on environmental sustainability. Through commercial cannabis facility assessments,
Byers is continuously expanding its database of strain-specific emissions profiles. Based on the number of strains, plant count, life stage, and estimated plant weight, BEA quantifies a facility’s gas-phase emission rate. Byers
Mitigation Technologies plugs this data into their Cannabis Emissions Profiler™ (CEP) to engineer and install
the proper number of mitigation units based on the exact number of air exchanges required to effectively sequester
the odor molecules before they have a chance to be released to ambient air and potentially be a nuisance to nearby
communities. This process helps to eliminate a perpetual reliance on HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)
systems in hybrid-greenhouses, warehouses, and indoor cultivation spaces that are not engineered or optimized
for cannabis odor control. All Byers equipment is equipped with automation capability through its proprietary
cloud-based SCADA system for remote control, management and monitoring.

The Evolution of Supercritical Extraction & Processing in Processing Food/Botanical Products - its Relevance in the Cannabis/ Hemp Industry

The use of supercritical fluids (SF– in particular carbon dioxide (CO2) – for the extraction (SFE) and processing of
foods, nutraceuticals and botanically-derived products, has had over a 50 year history, beginning in the late 1960’s.
This webinar will highlight the presenter’s experiences beginning in 1968 to the present day, with a discussion
showing the connectivity between SFE’s application in the above fields and its present day use in processing
cannabis and hemp substrates. Tradeoffs in employing SFE-processing are defined by the relationship between
selectivity/throughput/efficiency whether it is used for the above-mentioned products and/or its application to
cannabis/hemp. This relationship often accompanies the performance of SFE at pressures/temperatures under
5000psig/100 C, which are the limitations built-in to commercially-offered welded technology SFE equipment.
However this range of conditions can be used effectively to enrich targeted botanicals and foodstuffs that can be
“combined” with cannabis/hemp extracts to provide “enhanced” consumer product compositions. Examples of this
theme will be provided, e.g., enriched antioxidant extracts obtained using CO2/SFE, such as
turmeric-enhanced/CBD compositions, as well as the use of other “green” pressurized fluids, such as ethanol and
water. This “multi-fluid” approach can be used separately, sequentially, or consecutively to obtain mixtures
that provide multiple health benefits. Many of the additional processing options using a critical fluid such as CO2
remained untapped with respect to their application in the cannabis field. These include fractionation operational
modes, reactions in CO2 (e.g., isomerization), production of fine particles for more effective drug –type delivery,
and control of micro-organisms. Finally a summary review of extracts provided by this approach for combing
with cannabinoid/terpene-laden extracts which will enhance their commercial use and provide value-added profitability
for companies producing cannabis- and hemp products.

When it comes to this new controversial cannabinoid Delta 8- friend or foe to the industry?

Delta 8 gained extreme popularity during the pandemic of 2020 Contrary to its growth with consumers there has been
significant push back from the CBD industry stakeholders. What exactly is Delta 8? Where does D8 fall on the spectrum
between THC and CBD? What are the problems D8 is causing in the industry and to whom? How is D8 helping
consumers and why its popularity?

Filling the Scientific Gaps in Order to Create a Final Stand for Cannabis

The fight to legalize medical marijuana has been a long and continuous struggle. The number of supporters has grown
mainly due to anecdotal stories and a rising number of advocates. And even with this growth, gaps in the research and
credentials supporting formulary claims keep the plant from obtaining its place in medicine. Dr. Annabelle has traveled
worldwide educating on the known benefits of cannabis and is now initiating clinical trials on a variety of indications.
In this talk, Dr. Annabelle will educate on the current scientific state of cannabis research and the stepwise process
that needs to be taken to not only legalize the plant, but to create a cannabinoid medicinal model in modern
medicine today.


Annabelle Manalo, PhD

12.00PM - 1.00PM

Formulating Cannabinoid Oils into Solid Dosage Forms with SYLOID® Silicas

In this presentation, the presenter will discuss the several applications of mesoporous silicas in cannabinoids
formulation. The applications of mesoporous silica ranges from purification of cannabinoids to offering several
functionalities in end product formulations like powders, tablets, and capsules. The presenter will discuss how these
oily and waxy cannabinoids can be converted into free flowing powders and other solid dosage forms including
chewable tablets.

Delta 8 Showdown

Delta 8 is great or Delta 8 is taint?! Join this much-anticipated panel consortium to hear the evidence and the
arguments for and against D8. Is it safe or unsafe? Should it be legal or unlegal?

The hot cannabinoid of the moment is Delta-8 THC. It’s a psychoactive compound—as in, it gets you high—that’s legal
in most states. Or, if not legal, then at least widely available. It’s in a bit of a gray area.

The structure of the law—everything hemp is legal except THC—created what’s seen by many producers as a loophole that allows the production and sale of Delta-8 THC, because it’s ever-so-slightly chemically distinct from the banned
Delta-9 THC.
