Welcome to Botanichemist Consulting! My name is Jonathan, I currently live in central Florida and have been a Cannabis advocate for over a decade. I double-majored in Chemistry and Biology and used my education to enter the beer, wine and cider brewing industry before legally entering the medical cannabis industry. I am the founder of Ouroboros Laboratories, a company which focuses on extracting locally foraged and invasive aromatic plants and extracting them via various perfuming methods such as steam distillation, enfleurage and expression. The Good Manufacturing Practices I learned in food/beverage production and traditional botanical extraction have allowed me to directly apply those practices to cannabis extraction, lab design and custom SOP creation. After the state passed Medical Marijuana legislation, I translated my skills from the strictly-controlled industry of alcohol production, to the controlled medical production of cannabis extracts and derivative products such as topicals, tinctures, vaporizers. I co-developed the 2nd legal Solventless Hash and Rosin Laboratory in Florida, and was able to train multiple individuals on how to exactly follow my yield-maximizing techniques. I have also had my rosin sculpture artwork featured by High Times Magazine and have won 1st place in Frenchy Cannoli’s Hash Porn Contest 2 years in a row. In my personal life, I love collecting rare plants, spending time at the beach and springs with my fiancé and I’m working on developing a community plastic recycling operation that creates sustainable building materials.
