Wageningen Dialogue

CineScience movietalk: How High

What can you find both at a scientific institute and in a coffeeshop? If you ask PhD researcher Mexx Holweg, his answer would be: Cannabis. In climate controlled rooms, he experiments with the physiological responses of medicinal cannabis to different environmental conditions. The main characters in stoner comedy How High also found an interesting fertilizer to grow their marijuana, which helps them to get into Harvard University. But what happens when their supply of supernatural smoke runs dry? A hilarious plot, combined with insights in state of the art crop physiology. What a way to spend your Wednesday evening.

The introduction by Mexx Holweg will be in English. The movie is English spoken with Dutch subtitles.

The movie talk starts at 20h. You are free to join an informal mini-dialogue on the role of WUR in doing more extensive cannabis research, then join us at the bar at 19h.
