A New Marijuana Plant Without the High? It Could Be Good Medicine
This article is about a new breed of marijuana that causes no buzz of its own. There have been Israeli researchers that bred cannabis plants that look. smell. and taste like orindinary marjuana. What's interesting is that it lacks THC, the active ingredient responsible for the spacy, giddy, and hallucinatory part of pot's high.
I'm very intrigued by this because I've grown up to know marijuana as a substance that makes people have a this false sense of ectasy. Now, I'm reading about a compound that's similar in every single way other than the hallucinatory part of marijana. There's bound to be some further developments made in the near future.
