Elon Musk’s SpaceX to send marijuana to astronauts on the ISS

SpaceX is expected to transport cannabis to the astronauts onboard the International Space Station for scientific research. The agri-tech company Front Range Biosciences recently announced its plans to send cannabis strains (legal) with low amounts of THC to space.

The experiment is to test the effects of micro-gravity on the plants. The company believes that the plant may experience some sort of mutation.

There is science to support the theory that plants in space experience mutations. This is an opportunity to see whether those mutations hold up once brought back to Earth and if there are new commercial applications.

The cannabis product that will reach the ISS is most-likely to be help. This is because hemp has a low concentration of THC, and high concentration of cannabidiol (CBD), and will, therefore, have less effects on the human body. These are all precautionary measures to ensure safe delivery.

Elon Musk on the Joe Rogan Podcast
