On Sunday, a SpaceX Dragon case docked with the International Space Station pulling almost three tons of load.
SpaceX’s next ISS resupply strategic planned for March 2020, and keeping in mind that that outing probably wo exclude any super-buff “mighty mice”, it’ll be pressing something similarly one of a kind: cannabis.
On Tuesday, agri-tech company Front Range Biosciences reported designs to send cannabis to the ISS.
No, it’s not space-shipping weed to get space explorers high. Rather, it’ll send plant societies of hemp, the legitimate cannabis strain with low degrees of compound THC.
The way of life will stay in an ISS hatchery for 30 days while BioServe Space Technologies (a Front Range venture accomplice) screens them remotely from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
After their 30 days in space, the cannabis societies return home to Earth so Front Range can perceive what impact, assuming any, microgravity and space radiation had on their quality articulation.
“There is science to support the theory that plants in space experience mutations,” Front Range CEO Jonathan Vaught said in a release.
“This is an opportunity to see whether those mutations hold up once brought back to earth and if there are new commercial applications.”
