In Indonesia, a medical marijuana farm is experimenting with changing the composition of pet insect food. Researchers have stopped giving antibiotics and other medications to small pets and replaced them with cannabis.
Diponegoro University declared that the experiment had shown promising results. So, for six months of feeding domestic insects with marijuana, only less than 10% of the total number participating in the experiment died. Research leader Dr. Bambang Cahyono believes that replacing antibiotics with cannabis will keep pets healthy without the use of a lot of harmful drugs.
Insects that have eaten cannabis food are sold for almost twice the normal price, but even this does not reduce demand. Many buyers want to have small pets at home that have not been injected with antibiotics and are willing to overpay for an “organic” way to raise them.
