“I’m good, but the sheep are better. “They jump higher than goats.” Giannis Bourounis, the owner of a vast plantation of cannabis for medicinal purposes in Greece, humorously describes the strange situation he experienced in his greenhouse days ago, when the flock of sheep ate 300 kilos of marijuana plants.
The flock of sheep happened a few days ago in the city of Volos, about 300 kilometers from Athens, where the Bourounnis greenhouse, the largest in central and eastern Europe, is located, after a flood forced the flock of sheep to enter the land where the plantation is located to protect themselves from water.
For the cannabis producer, the drama had already begun, with floods that rocked the region, due to water that destroyed 80 percent of his marijuana plants. A few days later, when the sheep entered their land, they committed themselves to destroying the rest.
“I am good, but the sheep is better, full of nonsense. They see everything as beautiful,” Bourounis told Greek radio Status FM, where he reported that “they found grass to eat because the rest of their food was destroyed by the flood.” “They really like cannabis, as man ivy and vegetables.” “They eat everything happily,” he stressed.
Bourounis is considered the owner of the largest cannabis greenhouse in Central and Eastern Europe. While trying to save the remaining plants from the flood, he found sheep eating marijuana. “While we are trying to save everything we can, suddenly we see sheep and goats that normally graze inside the greenhouse – he described – the animals use it like sugar.”
Despite the amount of marijuana they consumed, the owner of the greenhouse said they needed a lot of work to get all the sheep and get them off the plant. “Sheep jump higher than goats and that never happens. It makes sense, because they ate about 300 kilos of cannabis,” he reflected.
