    In SWIM's readings from interviews from John W. Huffman. Huffman says it's very easy to make JWH-018 with commercially available ingredients, and that a knowledgeable person should be able to read his research paper and figure it out.
    SWIM assumes it would take a chemist, but SWIM wonders if the home hobbyist would be able to make his own JWH-018.

    mind you swim is no amazing chemist, Thats what he's in college for ;) , but he saw the process once after a bit of searching around, and it seemed overly complex for his level. it would at the very least require a few years of chemistry and a knowledge of various laboratory procedures. of course i'm sure were one a chemist of a decent caliber who could work a lab it would seem rather simple. It was just very technical and used terms swim does not yet understand, and processes that require a knowledge of the subject.

    swim agrees with Bloody Muffin (and coincidentally is also a chemistry student atm :D), the synthesis would require at least most of an undergrad understanding of lab technique, as well as some expensive laboratory equipment and slightly hazardous reagents. swim is pretty sure huffman made the statement in terms of easy for a chemist (which it is), however it is by no means a simple reduction that can be accomplished with online teks (a la ephedrine to meth/ ppa to amphetamine).
