All of Awakened’s production methods have the potential to produce resultant compounds at scale, and at significantly reduced costs when compared to other production methods of the same name. Awakened’s novel production methods have resulted in the filing of three (3) provisional patents applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for protection of these proprietary technologies.
