North Carolina Joseph Resnick wants to solve a problem that has plagued American ecological groups for three decades: He wants to eradicate the invasive quagga and zebra mussels from freshwater sources, from coast to coast.
With microscopic extracts of cannabidiol CBDhe may have the answer that thousands of people and billions of dollars have sought all along.
In Decemberthe U. Since those species were first discovered in Great Lakes ballast water in the late s, neither public nor private ingenuity has devised a solution to their alarming and food chain-disrupting existence.
Ina man found a quagga mussel in Lake Mead, 30 miles east of Las Vegas. The Columbia River watershed, in the Pacific Northwest, is the last watershed known to be free of these mussels in the lower 48 states. Each female, to be clear, has the ability to lay 30, eggs per breeding cycle.
A thriving population of these mussels will inevitably drain an ecosystem of its plankton, out-competing most fish species and causing a breakdown in the food chain. Because they stick to surfaces, like pipes or piers, the sheer mass of mussel colonies can also destroy public infrastructure.
The federal government needs a solution as quickly as possible. If his plan works, the U. The biopolymer itself 1. Those density measure are important: This is how Resnick gets his cannabis product to the mussels. Imagine taking a handful of BBs and dropping them in the water.
Anyone who intends on eradicating quagga and zebra mussels needs to get down there. Past efforts to combat these invasive species have often involved dumping various toxic biocide agents into the water and hoping that the chemicals spread sufficiently to the mussel population.
As a back-up to his plan, Resnick has also included a strain of genetic virus in his nanospheres. This gene-editing chemical would essentially strip the mussels of any ability to produce offspring that can stick to surfaces and, therefore, feed.
Resnick sees big opportunities in this cross-section of scientific inquiry. In the cannabis world, this work started a few years back for RMANNCO and Resnick, when he began working with a company in California to manufacture encapsulated powdered cannabinoids.
Back in North Carolina, where a nascent hemp industry is growing, Resnick taking a closer look at how hemp oil might be used across a spectrum of public and private organizations—as fuel, for instance.
By encapsulating cannabinoids in, for instance, the sort of biopolymer microspheres that Resnick produces, he can guarantee accurate measurements. This will prove vital not only in his work with invasive species, but with the broad spectrum of consumer and patient cannabis uses, as well.MPs studying the government's cannabis legalization bill heard Friday that excluding edible products from next year's planned rollout will mean the black market will continue to supply them.
