A farm in Thailand is trialling an experimental project raising organic chickens and experimenting with replacing antibiotics with more natural alternatives.
Researchers from Chiang Mai University have reported that the use of medical marijuana in the chicken feed has shown some promising results.
The chickens are selling for twice the price on the market with consumers looking for organic poultry willing to fork out the extra cash.
The study has only taken place over a year and is still in the review stage but the use of cannabis appears to be working. The mortality rate of the chickens on the farm is comparable to normal seasons without any bird flu outbreaks.
