  • Publication number: 20240016870
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the manufacture of a Cannabis concentrate from dried, destemmed, and optionally ground Cannabis obtained via a closed-loop extraction using butane or propane. Another aspect of the present invention relates to a process of exposing dried, destemmed, and optionally ground Cannabis obtained via sequential CO2 and closed-loop extraction using butane or propane. Another aspect of the present invention relates to exposing Cannabis biomass to a polar solvent, filtering, then evaporating the solvent to form an extract. The solvents are then removed, for instance using heat and vacuum. Another aspect of the invention relates to compositions, such as Cannabis concentrates, that can be obtained through the processes described.

  • Publication number: 20240001025
    Abstract: A recharging and medication storage hub for a re-usable drug-delivery device is provided. According to some embodiments, the hub comprises a housing defining a port sized to receive at least part of the re-usable drug-delivery device, a charging station disposed on the housing configured to charge a rechargeable power source mounted on the drug-delivery device, and a medication storage chamber disposed in alignment with the port, the storage chamber configured to store a single-use medication cartridge. When at least part of the drug-delivery device is inserted through the port and into the medication storage chamber, a coupling mechanism is configured to releasably couple with and withdraw the medication cartridge from the medication storage chamber. In some embodiments, the hub may further comprise a temperature-changing device configured to control an interior temperature of the medication storage chamber.

  • Patent number: 11809574
    Abstract: A method for multi-source cloud-infrastructure vulnerability management includes receiving cloud-element information related to a cloud-based element in a cloud environment. The method also includes receiving first vulnerability information from a first vulnerability source and receiving second vulnerability information from a second vulnerability source. Cloud-element context information is also received about the cloud-based element from the cloud environment. A multiple-source vulnerability database is then generated from both the first vulnerability information and from the second vulnerability information. The cloud-element information and the cloud-element context information are then evaluated using the multiple-source vulnerability database to generate a vulnerability assessment.

  • Patent number: 11457899
    Abstract: In order to address an inability to separate portions of a sample and/or substance, in some embodiments, methods and apparatuses for separating components and/or portions of a sample are provided. For example, a sample collection container may comprise two areas within the container, one which is configured to contain a first volume of the sample, and one which is configured to contain a second volume of the sample. A float device may be configured to seal the portion of the container collecting the first volume from the portion of the container collecting the second volume, after the former portion of the container has been filled. The sample collection container may further comprise a top cap configured to further seal the two portions of the container, and to prevent leakage and/or spilling of the sample from the sample collection container.
