I constantly hear people who are very educated about GMO foods, but never hear of people who are concerned, or even mention GMO MJ.

I am pretty sure that true 'GMO' weed does not actually exist. There are many people who do not realize that GMO means that the actual DNA of the species has been modified through bioengineering and confuse selective breeding with genetic modification. A chihuaha is not a genetically modified dog, it got the way it is through selective breeding, the same way super dank bud got the way it is today...

OP has no idea what they are talking about. GMO cannabis exists, in labs and government controlled greenhouses somewhere but it is not available to the public. Right now it is completely R&D. All of the hybrids you hear about and see for sale at cannabis retail seedbanks are just that, HYBRIDS. Created by using pollen from a male plant to produce seeds within a female plant. 50 years of hippies and veterans crossbreeding cannabis for the sole purpose of potency has created thousands of strains that will knock your socks off, although the original strains they started with from places like thailand, india, nepal and south america will also knock your socks off when grown correctly from high quality seeds. Nothing has changed except the AVERAGE potency is higher today than 30, 40, 50 years ago. Super charged high potency cannabis has always been around it's just that today that is what people exclusively want, so you don't see mediocre headache weed for sale 99% percent of the time.

It is not unrealistic to speak of GM Cannabis...a simple google search yields tons of results.

I know the difference between selective breeding and GM, thank you.

[link to www.celebstoner.com]

The latest version of this attempt is genetically modified cannabis. “Genetic modification” - also called “GM," "genetically modified organisms," “GMO” and "transgenic" - is a process by which genes from one living thing are spliced together with another, in a manner that nature would not allow to occur on its own – as opposed to “breeding," which is speeding up a natural selection process with human selection but still limited to what could possibly happen over time in nature.

The first mention of the possibility of cannabis being genetically modified I could find was cited in a document leaked to Cannabis Culture back in 2000, which read in part: "Cannabis seeds from Monsanto are almost definitely genetically engineered. Genetically engineered plants can be patented, and it is in Monsanto's best interest to hold a patent on any seed they sell. Seed patents ensure that companies like Monsanto can continue to profit from seeds from year to year, as farmers are legally bound to buy patented seeds from the patent holder rather than simply store them from the last year's crop.”

[link to www.huffingtonpost.co.uk]

has investigated the prospect of genetic modification, and in one sample she tested she found a trace of a substance often associated with genetically modified crops, strengthening concerns that some strains of cannabis have been genetically modified.

In her study entitled 'Investigations into the Hypothesis of Transgenic Cannabis' just published in the 'Journal of Forensic Sciences', Dr Cascini raises the possibility that this substance is a contaminant perhaps from a cover crop used to conceal the illegal cultivation.

Dr Cascini points out we already know that cultivation techniques have increased the potency of marijuana. Novel varieties such as, for instance, ''sinsemilla'' (from the Spanish ''sin semilla''--without seeds-- which is obtained from unpollinated female plants) and growing plants from selected seeds via intensive indoor methods, mean THC concentrations can reach as high as 20-30%.

Cascini also points out that genetic modification of plants used to produce psychoactive drugs has already definitely happened. Research recently published in the academic journal 'Plant Biotechnology Journal' demonstrated it was possible to genetically modify the morphine poppy to boost production of morphine-like substances from the plant by 15-30% dry weight.

Genetic modification of plants is growing - Vitamins have been increased 6-15-fold in plants through GM. Genetic modification of tobacco has altered aroma and nicotine content.

If Dr Cascini is right and Cannabis has been genetically modified to render it more potent - who would have done this? She speculates that those interested in the transgenic modification of cannabis might not just be those involved in illegal production, but could in fact include the Pharmaceutical Industry, because of the economic implications.


[link to www.growswitch.com]
The next stage in continuing this control is in the regulation, licensing and taxation of Cannabis cultivation and use through the only practical means available to the corporate system, which is through genetic engineering and patenting of the Cannabis genome. Proposition 19: The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 lays the foundation, writes RJM.

I think people are reluctant to accept it, or even look into it and admit that it's happening because some people hang onto to marijuana as an "ideal" or symbol of freedom...it's sacred ground and nobody wants to think that corporations would go after that as well. When people use it they feel that they are somehow giving a big "fuck you" to the man.
It hasn't occurred to them that the man is going to get the last laugh.

DOW chemical profited enough from classifying hemp with marijuana and pushing for it's prohibition, and the only reason it is still illegal is because they are not quite ready, through manipulations and patenting to take full control of production. When they are ready, the dispensaries doors will be wide open and the marketing will be amazing.

big difference between the two. GMO food crops are made to withstand harmful insects and pesticides. Weed as a plant has many different strains and hybrids which are totally organic and can be crossbred for desired effects. Sativa is a headie high and indica is more of a couch lock. You can cross the two of any strain to get the desired effects for pain killing, appetite needed urges or just for pleasure seeking. Note: basically the THC in the plants, the trichomes themselves are a defense against insects or predators
