This is Olivetol, aka C11-H16-02. Olivetol is of the Terpenoid series - many of the etherial wonders of the world are of this series Terpene Biosynthesis is a good review of this process. Olivetol is the precrusor of cannabidiol which is the precursor of delta nine tetrahydrocannabinol, THC. These are the atoms that the US Government believes it is fighting in its "War on Drugs" aka "War on Atoms." Allegedly there were some electrons that were spinning without proper identification... however due to several equations it has been determined that their precise nature will never ever ever be determined... ergo this is a lost cause... this makes our foray into Vietnam look like a methodical act of foresite. Next to the WoA... well there's nothing coming to mind right now to compare it to. It's too stupid. In a league of its own ignorance.

olivetol is one of my favorite chemicals. Although there are some processes that start with benzoic acid, my current interest starts with vanilla extract. If you have any syn proceedures, please put them forward.
