Bio-engineering cannabinoids with yeast

Recommended Posts

My brother-in-law alerted me to this.  Pretty interesting news from the world of science.  Scientists are looking to use yeast to mass-produce specific cannabinoids.  There are all kinds of benefits to this approach.  But it is disturbing to think about, too.

For cannabinoids, the key benefit is scale. The idea is that you could crank out vast amounts of CBD in vats far more easily than by planting greenhouse after greenhouse of cannabis plants. (Which is not to say some folks won't still appreciate their cannabis grown the old fashioned way.) But to make it as efficient as possible, you’d need to work with the highest possible concentrations of cannabinoids. That is, you’d want optimize your yeast to churn out a whole lot of product.
