Scientists in Israel have found a way to develop a cannabis strain without the THC benefits and THC side-effects, which are also some of it’s benefits. This amazing new cannabis should be named Israeli Kushless or something else implying useless and a bad idea. Why not THC-it-up?
The medicinal side of cannabis is still being discovered and learned about, but without worrying about the side-effects of giving hunger-feelings for cancer-ridden patients that can’t find the motivation or desire to eat it seems like maybe medicinal cannabis is better developed and modified by individual growers and not scientific factories. Just as Ford Ranger parts are better manufactured by professionals than chop shops.
According to an article in the Maariv daily, the new cannabis looks and smells and tastes the same, but does not induce any of the feelings normally associated with smoking marijuana that are brought on by the substance THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. This seems the same as building a Porsche or Ford Mustang without all the horsepower or a racing car without all the right parts. Making marijuana that doesn’t get you high seems as pointless as building a Ford pickup without all the Ford Ranger parts. A Ranger pickup needs to have its juice in order to do what it was built to do.
Those same feelings are reportedly encouraging in cancer patients and other extreme medical needs-patients whose bodies have stopped producing the hunger-inducing chemicals in their bodies sometimes due to radiation, other medicines, or the actual cancerous cells themselves.
Theory isn’t necessary in this situation, this is just a function of a scientist making a mistake while attempting to create the highest CBD-laden marijuana strain available. When the scientists eventually find their expected outcome with experimentation you will hear more about the CBD side of marijuana (which is currently believed to be leading the scientific community for future potential with cannabis).
Will marijuana ever be totally legal in the United States?
