Cannabis of course is regarded as marijuana and pot. Appeared 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 additionally wouldn’t do drugs or smoke pot so this article is without consideration of your stoners in the world or their potential support of this plant for ethanol. If cannabis grows so well all around the globe it does make sense to look into its use for the making of ethanol.
If cannabis can come in into Ethanol then i found modify it to be successful better and use those genetic differences which provide for low water in production to insure that and we don’t get price spikes during times of drought in the ethanol we use for principal interest. Additionally if the plant can be used to “get high” then we need to modify it so it doesn’t occur or that the leaching into the soil or waterways does not contain high levels of THC as it will be problematic.
If we further modify this cannabis weed then we should instead make it with terminating seeds until we know the things we have done, other wise it turn out to be a “super weed” and take over natural cannabis and other close genetic types of weeds. In a price think tank recently a gentleman mentioned that;
“Ethanol/bio diesel is going to be the fuel supply of the future for that rotary, eccentric crank, 4 and 2 cycle engines that run our cars boats trains and generator sets etc. Probably it burns far cleaner than the crude oil based hydrocarbon heavy fuels we use at present, and will minimize the contamination.”
