Genie Mist make any plant produce THC?

No company would invest millions into producing a product that will be shot down before it sells one bottle, even if it's legal until they announce they intend to produce and sell it.
This is just a copycat of Tomahigk [sic], some prank back in the early 00s. I'm too high right now to remember when it was. They said the exact same thing just with slightly more detail on the process and instead of a spray, they offered 3 seeds for free (funded by?) if you send them your address. They probably sold the list for junkmail.
My final nail to add to the coffin is that I don't remember reading a front page news article about a genetic engineering breakthrough that can replace DNA within every living cell of a plant through... magic?

I heard it turns aluminum cans into gold bars too!
Company makes any plant produce THC and the tomatoes are especially yummy : thecrit.com
Not exactly sure if it is legit yet. I was kind of hoping GC could help me find that out.

hey team, i just made a profile to respond to this thread transposon sprays CAN actually introduce genetic material into living cells. it is in some ways like a virus, and some viruses do just that. just look up transposons on wikipedia and you can image how a spray consisting of a transposon in a solvent like DMSO that can cross membranes could certainly insert itself into cells. if you spray a sapling as the thecrit article suggests only the cells coming from those cells hit with the spray will produce the gene products contained in the transposon. i.e. the roots will be normal, but the stems and whatever comes off them (fruit) will have the pathway. there are some possible complications, already mentioned was the lack of complete cbd/thc bouquet, the total size of the pathway must be relatively small, the promoter they use should be active in the organism (genie mist may not work on bacteria, for example), and they could modify the pathway so that the produced thc is localized to some part of the cell or exuded. doesn't really matter in the case of tomatoes, but if one wanted to fill a bioreactor with bacteria that secrete thc and collect the supernatant to make hash this might come in handier than killing all the cells to extract the thc. hope this has been helpful, and hit me up w/ any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org teamwork!!!! http://cloudimages.g...ies/biggrin.gif

In the late 70's or early 80's there was a report of some shade tree botanists attempting to "splice" tomato vines on cannabis stems. They reported that the results were negligible buzz from foliage and tomatoes tasted different with little effects. Nothing else was heard of grafting attempts from them to my recollection.
you can graft hops and cannabis together relatively easily (hops being on of if not the closest relative to marijuana), although sadly but not surprisingly it doesn't give you thc infused hops

lol...guy above me posted wiki as a creditable source...i hope u know that altering genes would make more money in cancer than pot...its fake ya dope
certainly no need for name calling, we're all on the same team here. i can't speak to the veracity of the original article, just giving my thoughts on the theoretical feasibility. i personally use wikipedia plenty- it's going to be here long after we're gone, and it's free to edit. so maybe you should quit bitching about how unreliable it is and correct it! exactly what errors in the transposon page did you find, might i ask? as for transposons in cancer, they tend to CAUSE cancer rather than cure it as they usually jump randomly into the genome. this can disrupt proto-oncogenes that then trigger active tumors. in a food crop it doesn't really matter, but in humans this quality tends to cause anxiety in institutional review boards...
