Researchers are feeding chickens cannabis instead of antibiotics

chickens

Organic birds fetch twice the price.

An organic farm in northern Thailand has been feeding chickens cannabis for over a year now in a bid to keep the birds off antibiotics, Business Insider reported. The method seems to be working so far. 

Excessive usage of antibiotics is a problem that has plagued the poultry industry for many decades. Estimates suggest that 70 percent of the antibiotics approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for poultry are already in use on farms today. This disproportionate use of antibiotics has given rise to antibiotic resistance that not only affects the birds but also has an impact on humans.

In the report released this week,  the agency showed that policymakers need to consider how future policy development responds to the continued risk of harm to underage people, the continued expansion of the cannabis market, which has yet to stabilize and the growing use of different product formats, including vaping, edibles and extracts.

How marijuana research has increased significantly — even with federal prohibition

lab worker

As we crawl out of the dark ages of marijuana research and knowledge, skeptics will have fewer reasons to oppose it.

Many lawmakers who oppose marijuana legalization say they need to see more research and studies on the subject before they vote to legalize marijuana on a federal level. Ample research and information is always important when voting on a major political matter. The problem, however, is that the century-long prohibition on marijuana has made it more difficult for researchers to study weed than legal substances.

Study results of “The OBX Pain Study on CBD and Rare Cannabinoids” were recently published and showcase evidence of the effectiveness of cannabinoid treatment.

The results of a clinical study were announced on June 15. Conducted by Radicle Science and Open Book Extracts (OBX), the study claims to be one of the largest cannabinoid trials to focus on pain treatment.
