Goat smoking weed

Eating marijuana does not get you high. At least, that’s the case with raw marijuana. To become stoned, the cannabis plant must undergo the process of “decarboxylation.” The most common way to do this is to apply heat, like the flame from a lighter or the heat from a stove.

This being said, as many cannabis farmers know, animals love to eat weed. In the Emerald Triangle, pot patches are fenced off to protect buds from the ravages of deer, who for some reason love to much on pre-harvest flowers. And if you use fish emulsion on your plants (you wouldn’t if your crop is “veganic,” a recent trend in marijuana-making) you need to worry about fish-loving bears digging up your crop.

All this to say: if you have excess marijuana trim or mostly worthless male plants to get rid off, why not feed them to animals? And for the rest of us, why not watch some goats go ape shit over a meal of weed?

Feeding animals marijuana is not novel. A few years ago, a Seattle-based butcher made waves by announcing that marijuana-fed pigs produced some of the best pork chops he had ever had. The pork in question was never stoned, for the reasons mentioned above, but there is ample evidence that they nonetheless gleaned benefits from ingesting the plant.

Raw marijuana has something called THC-A, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. THC-A has anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective benefits, research suggests. We know of more than a few people who juice raw weed and simply rave about how great — and unstoned — it makes them feel.

Maybe we should all act like a goat now and then.
