    Yeast produce low-cost, high-quality cannabinoids

    Yeast produce low-cost, high-quality cannabinoids -- ScienceDaily

    Synthetic biologists have created an enzymatic network in yeast that turns sugar into cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol, but also novel cannabinoids not found in the marijuana plant itself. The yeast factories would be more environmentally friendly and less energy intensive than growing the plant and separating out the psychoactive and non-psychoactive ingredients. They may also yield cannabinoid derivatives with unexpected medical uses.

    You realize, of course, that this is a GMO.

    If I don't answer your post it's because you lost the debate.

    If I'm only interested in getting stoned, do I care?

    Good to see new research.

    A lot was forbidden or otherwise prevented by the feds for a very long time.

    Last I knew, that was still the policy on the books.
