Feeding chicken with marijuana yielding promising results than antibiotics
A farm growing medical marijuana in northern Thailand has been feeding its free-range chickens with cannabis instead of antibiotics, and researchers said the experiment has yielded promising results thereby fetching higher prices from consumers seeking organic poultry.
This has been reported in bizarre news, captioned ‘’A farm feeding chickens with marijuana is fetching higher prices from consumers seeking organic poultry’’, according to the Business Insider report.
As part of the experiment, Lumsangkul said her research team would sometimes give the chickens bolstered levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — the substance in marijuana that gives users a high — that went past the legal limits for humans in Thailand.
Researchers from Chiang Mai University’s Department of Animal and Aquatic Sciences said that fewer than 10% of the 1,000 chickens at the farm in Lampang have died unusually since they introduced cannabis leaves to the chickens’ diet in January 2021.
While the study’s findings are still under review and only cover one year’s worth of research, Chompunut Lumsangkul, an assistant professor who led the study, told Insider that the cannabis feed appears to be working. The mortality rate for the chickens at the farm has been the same as in regular seasons when there isn’t a severe outbreak of any bird-killing disease, she said.
The birds’ special food is produced by adding crushed cannabis to their feed and water, said Lumsangkul. No antibiotics and medicines are fed to or used on the chickens during this time.
Besides having healthier chickens, farms also produced chickens sold at higher prices to consumers seeking organic poultry.
