Bees can fly higher than Mount Everest!

Bees can fly higher than Mount Everest!.

Researchers have long wondered how these tiny flyers were able to navigate the challenges of high-altitude flight—and just how high bumblebees could go. (See intimate portraits of bees.) ... Two bumblebees were able to fly at more than 29,525 feet (9,000 meters)—higher than Mount Everest.

On average, bees were capable of hovering at air pressure equivalents exceeding 8000 m (maximum flight altitude median: 8039 m, mean: 8331 m, range: 7820–9125 m; figure 1)

It may lash out and you will receive a sting, so be careful when walking close to the front of a busy beehive. Mating drones will fly up to 30 metres above ground to find a queen, and can go much higher if warm rising thermal air carries them.

Insects, unlike humans and other mammals, don't have an ECS or endocannabinoid system. This means they have no cannabinoid receptors. So it's a definitive no; bees can't get high from cannabis because they can't access the THC. In nature, wild honey bees are drawn to colourful, nectar-producing plants.
