Do you require a minimum number to move forward?

Minimum has been reached via fb groups and friends. Clarifying legalities and then were good to go

I've read that its a "a precursor in various syntheses of tetrahydrocannabinol" would this not raise flag importing it into Oz ?

From what I've read, Olivetol is not illegal anywhere (can't find anything specifically about importing into Oz). I may be wrong here, but my understanding is it was being investigated as a possible way to counter the psychoactive effects of THC, given it acts as a competitive inhibitor for both CB1 and CB2 receptors.

 

Flux is quite right however, in saying it is believed to be a precursor in various syntheses of THC, though I think this comes from the possible process the cannabis plant uses Olivetolic acid (in harmony with quite a few other enzymes) to bio-synthesize THC. Someone a little more chemistry literate might shed some light on this and whether it's possible to artificially synthesize THC using Olivetol.

Department of home affairs response was "I can't see it being an issue but you should contact a customs broker" customs themselves have no way to be contacted. 

 

It sucks trying to abide by legislation that is so ambiguous you can never be sure of anything

Good luck trying to get a straight answer on anything directly from a govt department. That's what consultants are for apparently.

I'm starting to think this cancer juice might actually be worth investing in :drool2:
