Dr. Daley has authored over sixty peer-reviewed publications in integrated pest management, plant photosynthesis, environmental chemistry, and analytical instrumentation including co-authoring The Shulgin Index, Volume One: Psychedelic Phenethylamines and Related Compounds, published by Transform Press in 2011.
“I am thrilled to be part of the team who will finally make Doug’s Varin available to cannabis users who have been requesting access for its amazing health benefits,” said Daley. “We are currently formulating an array of new products which are expected to be introduced this summer. This is an exciting time to be in the cannabis business.”
This first distribution of Doug’s Varin™ began in February 2019, at five SPARC™ locations in the San Francisco Bay Area with the introduction of two THCV-rich vape pen product lines: Doug’s Varin™ ORIGINAL (1:1 THCV/THC) and Doug’s Varin™ RELIEF (1:1 THCV/CBD). Both contain 25% to 30% THCV cannabis oil,found naturally in a full spectrum extraction from rare high THCV cannabis flowers, and are reputed to offer long-awaited personal health benefits. The high THCV levels are enough to activate the compound’s surprising effects.
LEVEL™ also offers a THCV enriched Tablingual™ powered by Doug’s Varin called STIMULATE and is available to cannabis users at: www.levelblends.com.
