Biosynthetic compounds — including cannabinoids — present the 'last great domestication' says Roy Lipski, CEO of Creo. His company is at the forefront of bringing lab-produced cannabinoids to market, at scale.  Cosmetics and creams will be among the first products to take advantage of this technology and we can look for these products on store shelves in the not-too-distant future. Tune in to hear how:

  • Microorganisms can produce bio-identical compounds, without the waste that comes with plant-produced cannabinoids.
  • A lab can produce a year's crop worth of cannabinoids in 48 hours.
  • We can now produce 'rare' cannabinoids, at scale.
  • Creo is working with consumer packaged goods providers to integrate cannabinoids into products  we use every day — like skincare products — and we can expect to see them on store shelves starting in 2022.
