Weed in Space: The Final Frontier for Cannabis Consumers
Space and weed. Weed in space. The relationship between cannabis and the interstellar universe is a natural connection. But how did we get here? And more importantly, where are we going?
As cannabis enters the mainstream and technology improves, the future of weed and weed concentrate continues to evolve with the changing landscape. The future is now for cannabis products. But before we blast off let’s take a look at where we’ve been on this celestial journey.
Space and Cannabis Culture
Space and Cannabis have a closely knitted relationship. Let’s discuss this in detail.
Recreational cannabis consumption can be traced back over 2500 years. Evidence from western China and Syria artwork indicates that our ancestors were perhaps consuming weed centuries before then.
Now, if you’ve done your homework, you already know that our ancestors were vibrating on a higher frequency – especially as it relates to being in tune with the universe. Relics, monuments, pyramids, and the Nazca Lines were designed to align with the solar system: ancient reminders of a greater cosmic awareness can be found on every continent around the globe.
We’ll save the ancient alien discussion for another time, but it’s safe to say our distant cousins were well versed in both space and cannabis. They were onto expanding your mind well before you started posting dab videos on IG.
But why is the concept of space synonymous with weed and cannabis culture?
The most basic term of “getting high” is not without a connection to space. After all, there aren’t many things higher than the infinite sky and solar system. The first use of the word “high” in relation to cannabis use was in 1930. The term “high” in connection to drug use appears to be connected to the act of elevating one’s physiological state through consumption.
Cannasseurs are also very familiar with the term “getting lifted”. Cannabis use has become more popular with the millennial generation than depressants like alcohol. The idea of “getting lifted” is a positive connection to the weed experience, rather than a narcotic that can bring you down physically, mentally, and emotionally.
The word “High” was originally used to denote something as elevated within society. According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, terms such as high school, high class, and high road all indicate something elevated, advanced, or important. From an extraterrestrial perspective, the term “high noon” dates back to the early 14th century and refers to the alignment of the sun with the center of the sky above.
Weed in Space: New Beginning
One potential origin connection of space and weed can be traced back to the legendary astronomer, planetary scientist, author, and generally smart dude, Carl Sagan. Sagan was an early advocate for cannabis consumption. In 1969, he published his essay, Mr. X. In the essay, Sagan explains his first encounters with cannabis and its impact on his perception of art, music, and social issues.
I am convinced that there are genuine and valid levels of perception available with cannabis (and probably with other drugs) which are, through the defects of our society and our educational system, unavailable to us without such drugs. Such a remark applies not only to self-awareness and to intellectual pursuits, but also to perceptions of real people, a vastly enhanced sensitivity to facial expression, intonations, and choice of words which sometimes yields a rapport so close it’s as if two people are reading each other’s minds.Carl Sagan
Neil Degrasse Buzz-kill
However, not all celebrity space scientists agree. Neil Degrasse Tyson says smoking weed in space is probably not a good thing. He attributes this to losing focus on the dangers of space while under the influence. Perhaps one might get so stoned that you inadvertently open the space lock instead of your lighter – that’s some strong weed for sure.
Space X Boss Elon Musk
Nevertheless, private space mogul Elon Musk is planning to launch some cannabis (and coffee) into outer space in 2020. Musk is no stranger to cannabis, space, or pushing the envelope. During an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, he took a memorable space-weed journey of his own.
THC found in Space
We knew that some good pot can make you feel like you’re floating on clouds, but we had NO idea that THC could exist in space. There was an article, which was first posted in 2015 and recently went viral, claims that the University of Hawai’s astrophysicists discovered Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on a meteorite found in the Nevada desert in 2010. THC is a chemical found in marijuana. The article includes false quotes by a made-up astrophysicist who never worked at UH.
After the story was shared thousands of times on social media, the USA reached out to UH to confirm if the astrophysicist actually worked at the university, and debunked the original story in a recent post.
NASA Cannabis story
An online store that claimed NASA will pay people $18,000 to stay in bed and smoke weed for 70 straight days straight is actually a viral legend that has been in orbit for quite a while now. This news is completely bogus because NASA does conduct bed-rest studies, but it does not allow participants to smoke marijuana or even drink alcohol.
NASA has discovered a New Planet Covered with Marijuana
NASA announced that they have discovered a planet completely covered with marijuana, a discovery that has completely taken scientists by surprise.
Planet X637Z-43, discovered using NASA’s Kepler satellite, would also allegedly be one of the very few planets potentially habitable according to NASA experts, who have detected sufficient levels of oxygen and nitrogen to support human life.
The presence of marijuana on other planets could strongly encourage future generations to take interest in space exploration, some experts believe.
“We always think young people aren’t interested in anything but it’s false. Young people love smoking pot,” explains David Charbonneau, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
There was no truth to this report, however. It originated with NewswWatch28, a junk news site that previously published fabricated clickbait stories about tranquilizer darts being sold for use on children and a death hoax concerning actor Al Pacino. This story has been on the internet since at least May 2015.
