Cannabis indica activates CRISPR Cas system
Cannabis indica activates CRISPR-Cas system
Missing dimension of Evolution: virus, Life evolves within a virus swarm. Evolution of resistance against virus.
Interaction between cell and virus has two outcomes:
1. Lysis: when virus hijacks cell genome in order to produce virions. Cell dies.
2. Lysogeny when cell hijacks virus genome in order to protect itself from it and from other viruses. Cell lives.
Bacteria and archaea have evolved defense and regulatory mechanisms to cope with virus attack, one is called CRISPR-Cas system, which has two novel features.

All cells in the body carry both antiviral protection systems:
Microbes in the gut are protected solely by CRISPR
All cells in cannabis indica carry both antiviral protection systems:
2. CRISPR Insertion mutation is inherited
