Cannabis of course is known as marijuana and pot. Usually associated with drug users and stoners. But whenever we can put away that stigma, we find that cannabis has four times the cellulose value as corn, making it a potentially good plant for ethanol production.
Now then, personally I do not do drugs or smoke pot so this article is without consideration for the stoners in the world or their potential support of this plant for ethanol. If cannabis grows so well all over the world it does make sense to look into its use for the making of ethanol.
If cannabis can be generated into Ethanol then we will need to modify it to be successful better and use those genetic differences which provide for low water in production to insure that unfortunately we cannot get price spikes whenever drought in the ethanol we use for fuel. Additionally if the plant can be used to “get high” then discovered modify it so that will not occur or that the leaching into the soil or waterways does not contain high levels of THC as it would certainly be problematic.
If we further modify this cannabis weed then we should make it with terminating seeds until we know anything you have done, other wise it turn out to be a “super weed” and take over natural cannabis along with close genetic types of weeds. In net think tank recently a gentleman mentioned that;
“Ethanol/bio diesel are the fuel regarding the future for that rotary, eccentric crank, 4 and 2 cycle engines that run our cars boats trains and generator sets etc. I see it burns far cleaner than the crude oil based hydrocarbon heavy fuels we use at present, and will minimize the polluting of the environment.”
