For the half a billion or so who suffer from one type or another of diabetes, biosynthesis offers a lifeline. For it is through biosynthesis that much of the world’s insulin is produced. Insulin regulates the metamorphosis of fats and protein and, importantly, allows the cells in the muscles, fat and liver to absorb glucose from the blood. When the body does not produce enough insulin nor use the insulin it produces efficiently, blood sugar levels may rise dangerously. However, biosynthesis, a mid-twentieth century technology, is not employed solely in producing insulin but finds application in many other fields. For example, Teewinot Life Sciences Corporation uses biosynthesis to produce cannabinoids, a method of manufacture that is much less costly than growing cannabis plants and extracting the cannabinoids. With biosynthesis, Teewinot Life Sciences is able to produce cannabinoids without touching the cannabis plant.
Despite changing attitudes, cannabis remains a prohibited or controlled substance in many jurisdictions worldwide. In the U.S., for example, it is regulated pursuant to the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, under which authorities have classified marijuana as a Schedule I drug, alongside heroin and LSD.
