Farmako is a German pharmaceutical company from Frankfurt. They just registered a patent that will make a modified tequila bacterium produce THC and CBD from sugar.
The process, which happens through biosynthesis, the company claims, will be a thousand times cheaper than the grown version.
The founder of Farmako -Patrick Schmitt- says this could help the manufacturing of medicinal cannabis, since this method could produce cannabinoids for 900 hours without interruption.
