The future of Marijuana is not in Cannabis: It's in Yeast!

Yes, yeast. All this flap about marijuana and Cannabis plant and strain patents and what not. They are passe. The technology is already here to make any cannabinoid, terpenoid and flavonoid that you want in a vat. Just add water, sugar and GMO yeast. Then let it brew and out comes the goods to add to oil for vape pens and pre-rolls, add to beverages, or insert into Rx pills. At a far lower cost. No grow license needed, no plants needed, no sunlight needed, no grand scale grow space needed, no harvest or trimming or extraction processing needed. Just ferment and blend, like wine. Seriously. This is a paradigm buster.

They've been producing large-scale batches of cannabinoids in the PRC for years (and a pretty large variety, apparently, since they're chemists instead of gardeners).

Me, I prefer having some cannabis with my cannabinoids ;).

you lost me at GMO
You would not be ingesting the GMO yeast, you would only be ingesting the cannabinoids and terpinoids that it makes. They would be refined to 100% purity, like CBD is today from hemp. The chemistry of the results would be identical. And all 500 different known cannabinoids as well as the 200 plus terpenoids simply cannot all be grown in Cannabis. Also these yeast cells will be able to produce new cannabinoids, terpenoids and favonoids that are not available or produced by Cannabis or even know yet.

Like it or not, it is the future of cannabinoids. At 1/100th the price to produce, it will be on the shelves. Cannabis will be grown for fiber, seeds and oil. Some of us old school growers may hang onto the old genetics, but we are a dying breed. Half of all marijuana sales in California are already vape pen oils. Juul vapers do not care where the nicotine or favonoids comes from. Vape pen oil users are pretty much the same.

It's a different high for different situations. I use my pen for mobility but I prefer flower at home. The pen hits quick and strong but the high doesnt last as long. I think the biggest draw for people is the discreteness a pen provides.
In the end I consider it a concentrate, which it is. Per mg of course its stronger than flower as its concentrated, and people argue as to whether it is healthier or not. I personally feel i get a more "natural" high with flower.
