Elon Musk and SpaceX will ship cannabis into space!

Elon Musk's company SpaceX is already planning its next shipment to be shipped to the ISS (International Space Station) in March 2020. Among the various products will be a rather peculiar one, a shipment of 480 cannabis plants. This is not the first time we have seen "Elon Musk" and "Cannabis" in the same news, but it appears that the Tesla CEO is not involved in this submission.

According to DigitalTrends, the cannabis plants that will be sent to space are part of an experiment to be conducted by Front Range Biosciences, an agrarian technology company.

Cannabis SpaceX

Cannabis can be used as food, building material and even as fuel!

No, these cannabis plants will not serve to "calm the nerves" of astronauts. Being of the "hemp" species, these plants contain very low levels of THC, the substance responsible for psychotropic effects.

The company is currently working on developing new varieties of hemp as well as coffee beans, and the experiment aims to understand how plants respond to the micro gravity experienced in space.

It has been proven on several occasions that plants react differently with low levels of gravity in space. However, it has not yet been possible to explain and justify these events.

According to Front Range Biosciences CEO, "There is scientific evidence to support the theory that plants in space mutate their DNA. This opportunity will give us the opportunity to find out if these mutations remain even after they return to Earth."

Space Cannabis

A total of 480 cannabis plants will arrive at the Space Station in 2020.

For travel to the Space Station to occur smoothly, up to 480 plants will be shipped in a special incubator, which will keep all specimens at a stable temperature throughout the trip.

Upon arrival at the ISS, cannabis plants will stay for 30 days in a micro-gravity environment and then return to Earth for their DNA to be analyzed in the laboratory.
