People use “medical edibles,” specifically marijuana in the form of food, for a variety of reasons, not all of which are actually, strictly speaking, medicinal. Well, you might soon be able to 3D print your medical edibles.
Potent Rope is a 3D printing filament that contains a measured dose of medical cannabis, fit for creating consumables. While medical marijuana has made its way into a number of consumable forms (I’ve heard gummy bears are a big hit), being able to form your own on demand may well be a first. (Cannabis benchy, anyone?) We’ve seen hemp filament before, as well as 3D printing used to help in dosing medical cannabis, and to help keep it protected from children, but actual 3D printable cannabis itself is, to the best of my knowledge, pretty novel.
When I first heard about Potent Rope, I had a lot of questions; its existence wasn’t necessarily surprising, but how realistic is it? Can you actually 3D print a hairy lion that can help to manage pain? What’s the science behind it?
