    Just a matter of time before we hear the merits of cannabis developers.

    I had heard Pomegranate juice might work...but I don't think it worked when I tried it...I used concentrate

    I'll have to find all my notes and post some decent results

    Jerold is right....Hemptol will be the developer that will kill off digital and bring all the old films back and make all our prints archival

    Only a very faint image was produced from Plus-X in 500ml Cranberry Juice plus 5 teaspoons washing soda,pH about 11,semi-stand developed 45m 70F.
    Cranberry juice I used contained 300mg/L vit C and 400mg/L proanthocyanidins.Neither of these is a good developer at the level found in the Cranberry juice.

    Interesting I never tried cranberry juice, but I think the berry extract I tried also contained proanthocyanidins IIRC and was also very weak

    I'm going to have to try mint next

    I tried something similar once, but I didn't bother to make precise measurements. It was diet Mountain Dew, sodium carbonate, and a film leader in a small container. As I recall, the combination ate away the emulsion, leaving me with clear film base. (I did this in normal room light and I didn't bother fixing it; it was just intended as an initial test, and given the results I didn't take it any further.)

    Caffeine IMHO does nothing....I've used pure caffeine from the drug store + sodium carbonate and nothing happened

    I understand it's the tannins/phenols or something in coffee & tea that do the developing
    It isn't the caffeine, it is the caffeic acid.
