22 Estimates of what is mostly an illegal agricultural production (except where the fibre-producing plant and, sometimes, the drug-producing plant, is legal – or decriminalised) are of course difficult and controversial. Satellite detection of outdoor cannabis crops proves more difficult, technically, than that of opium poppies, and such imagery is rarely resorted to, notably because of its cost 17 . On the other hand, indoor cannabis crops have fast developed during the past decades, whether in the United States, Canada, or Western Europe, and the scale of such crops proves very difficult to assess (estimates and eradication reports actually mention numbers or weight of indoor plants and not cultivated areas). Also, ground surveys are often deemed too expensive (or time-consuming, dangerous, etc. ) to carry out as cannabis crops can be grown virtually anywhere and are often much more dispersed than coca or opium poppy crops in a given country (cannabis being an extremely popular drug that has benefited notably from important subcultures (Rubin, 1975, p. 1; Decorte et al ., 2011, p. 4-6).

34 During the 2010s the quasi-total prohibition of cannabis has been seriously questioned and even abolished in various countries and states, with recreational, medical, and other uses (notably with hemp being increasingly used as building material), being legalised, and sometimes only decriminalised, on every continent. The speed and scale at which what is truly a global phenomenon occurred has revealed how little is known about the plant, its (geo)history, its uses and its safety or associated risks. From the plant’s taxonomy to its medical potential, much still needs to be studied and understood. Of course, the geography of cannabis will also benefit from its legalisation as the plant, its production, trade, and uses, have been very little studied because of prohibition and the risks and dangers that such a research topic has long represented (Chouvy, 2018).

32 As for hemp, the non-psychoactive cannabis valued as a source of fibre, oils, and seeds, it is legally cultivated in 25 countries (Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Nepal, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Ukraine) but has been illegal in the United States between the 1950s (it was an important legal crop before that) and 2018. The 2014 Farm Bill had first allowed hemp cultivation for research purposes only, and for not commercial production, but the 2018 Farm Bill eventually marked a major shift in U.S. agriculture and drug policy by lifting the ban on hemp and amending the Controlled Substance Act of 1970 for the first time to legalize CBD (though not medically) and the other cannabinoids that can be sourced from hemp (less than 0.3 % of THC by dry weight).
GMO marijuana strain has distinctive funk to its aroma. At first, what we are about to describe may seem a bit off-putting, but trust us, it isn’t.
As with the smell of GMO, we are big fans of the taste simply because of how different it is to the regular fruity fest you usually get from modern green breeds. GMO provides smokers with a new and unique taste profile, and the breeders should stand for applause for this.
GMO Strain Aroma
Let’s find out if the taste matches up in our next section.
All breeds of cannabis with substantial levels of THC will give these side effects and one thing in GMO’s favor it that users tend to report all of these possible side effects occurring a lot less frequently than with other types of weed. Of course, this could be that most people who use GMO are veteran smokers, so they could have a higher general tolerance to the adverse side effects of smoking weed.
GMO looks good, smells good, and tastes good. Our descriptions might have convinced you to try growing some yourself. Our next section has all the grow information you could need.
