Cannabis Without the High???

So I checked the latest news on my Alerts this morning, and the headline “Medical Marijuana Without the High” screamed out at me, so I obviously had to check that link out immediately.

According to this Reuters report, an Israeli company has been able to cultivate CBD-only cannabis plants that have very little THC, if any. As any seasoned toker knows, it’s the THC that gives you that stoned feeling.

I for one welcome this move as this breakthrough will surely only support the expansion of medical research into the effects of cannabis-related products to treat conditions such as HIV, Parkinson’s, MS, Diabetes, and a whole host of other ailments. Some people just don’t want the THC stoner effects, and by developing a CBD heavy plant they may get all the benefits of the plant with none of the psychoactive feelings.
