NASA’s contribution to the Cannabis Industry

Today’s weed is beyond your mom or dad’s little backyard garden. It’s an advancement in science and technology which involves different stages of micropropagation. Clinics, college professors, MIT students in white lab coats, etc… are now highly involved and revolutionizing new popular weed strains every month. Test tube growing such as the ones from Meristematic can now be added to the list of growing methods with stone wool cubes and coco based blocks. Botanist are now starting the breeding process from a tiny seed inside test tubes filled with nutrition-infused gel which takes the place of soil and allows seeds to grow into plants without water or sunlight. The gel is color coded with a dye to indicate the type of strain each test tube is encasing. It’s translucent, so you can watch the entire germination and photosynthesis cycle. This is not a new discovery. The system was developed by NASA engineers and tested in space and is catching on in the cannabis industry.

What are the advantages of this process you ask? Well, each test tube can be sealed air tight and transported in smaller containers to cannabis farms. This process also reduces the chances of your mother plant from being contaminated or infected by airborne pest and diseases. What does that mean?…It means you have a greater chance of transporting scent free and pathogen-free cannabis straight from lab to garden!

You can research methods online on how to grow from test tubes and similar containers or stick to the traditional ways of growing. Clonex is the ultimate rooting compound relied on by professional and amateur horticulturists to deliver successful propagation. The hormone gel has successfully been used on billions cuttings proving its track record time and again. It is far safer than liquids or powders because it cannot splash or blow about. Unlike liquids and powders, CLONEX will remain in contact with the stem right through the rooting period. It works with partner products ROOT RIOT and CLONEX MIST to give young plants the healthiest and most powerful start in life. To purchase Clonex products, visit
