Many people are attracted and even addicted to edibles, but imagine the possibility of edibles getting to animals. Food treated with Cannabis Seeds has both medicinal and recreational values in humans. However, now, several types of research have been carried out to see the impact of cannabis seeds on fish.
Reasons for the feeding of fish with cannabis.
To investigate whether cannabis can make the fish relaxed in their crowded ponds.
The main reason for feeding fish with cannabis was to see whether it would make them relax. In today’s fishing industry, farmers are producing them in high numbers, thus making them become overpopulated in their rearing environments. This, in turn, stresses the fishes as even the quality if water reduces and not just their living space. Due to this fact, scientists wanted to see whether cannabis can make them relax as they struggle in these congested environs all the time.
To see whether cannabis increases the growth rate in fish.
If cannabis has an effect on the metabolism activities in fish, then it would reduce the cost of farming fish. Feeding fish is becoming unbearable to many fish farmers due to the high cost of buying the fish feeds. If cannabis can increase the growth rate in fish, farmers would make good profits in the fish sale.
Out of the above shortcomings in the rearing of fish, scientists from the American University of Beirut did a study to research whether there was something that can be fed on to fishes to help solve the crisis. Cannabis was thought to have an effect on tilapia, hence the research took center stage with a lot of enthusiasm.
To enhance on the quality of research, Patrick Saoud, an aquatic scientist, didn’t source cannabis from the streets but got it from the police evidence lockers. There is no law prohibiting it, the police handed over some of the cannabis they had stored as evidence.
Observations made from the research.
When the scientists carried out the evaluations, cannabis seemed to have no effect on starter fish. There wasn’t any difference with fish brought up by controlled diet feeding. However, changes were experienced in two weeks in the THC fed tilapias. This meant that feeding the fish for two weeks continuously increased their tolerance to the unbearable environments.
On the issue of increasing their metabolism rates, the research was positive. Their metabolism increased. According to Patrick Saoud, this increase in metabolism was not brought about by an increase in the number of feeds to the fish. The fish were fed normally. This means that fish farmers will soon have to queue at the doorsteps of agro vets to get the drug.
Feeding fish with marijuana may seem silly to most people, but in the end, it will help maximize the profits for farmers. The drug has little effect on the fish blood cells; hence, the fish’s body was able to fight against any bacteria. Therefore, medical marijuana remains a solution to fish farming unless another research is carried out to discredit the findings concluded in this experimentation.
