Weed is a pretty effective drug as it is. If you don’t believe me, go smoke some kush and let me know how you feel. What if we could make weed even stronger though? Scientists think they can now that the have discovered the gene in marijuana that produces THC (the ingredient that gets you high). This means that they can either increase or decrease it will more research. No one wants them to decrease it though…
Finding the genes opens the path to either create drug-free hemp plants for industrial purposes, or to develop plants with much higher concentrations of the psychotropic chemical.
Publishing in the Journal of Experimental Botany, the researchers note that they specifically targeted the genes responsible for generating the drug-filled hairs highlighted in many a High Times photo spread. By impairing or encouraging the growth of those hairs, scientists could gain precise control over the level of THC in the crop.
