Astronaut Edibles Are Here, and They Will Get You Higher Than the Atmosphere
Space Food Sticks, which once fed NASA astronauts during America’s earliest space missions, are now the first legacy brand to enter the cannabis edibles market.
Published on July 19, 2019

A legacy food brand has officially entered the cannabis space, debuting infused edibles that once, well, went to outer space. The newest incarnation of Space Food Sticks, which fed US astronauts during NASA’s heyday, will now be available featuring 5mg of THC.

Space Food Sticks were originally created in the late ‘60s by Pillsbury (tee hee!) through a joint venture with NASA. At the time, astronauts only ate liquid or pasty foodstuffs that came in tubes. Space Food Sticks became the first solid food option for American spacefarers. As the sticks rose in popularity in the ‘70s, grocery stores stocked commercial versions, essentially becoming the nation’s first protein and energy bars.
