A New Strain in the Pot Debate: ‘Highless’ Marijuana

Israeli researchers may have found a way to keep healthy people from abusing medical marijuana: take away the high.

The “highless” marijuana still eases the symptoms of the medical marijuana patients, but it contains less than 1% of THC, the chemical that causes pot’s signature euphoric high.

Instead, this new cannabis strain, called Avidekel, is beefed up with 15.8% cannabidiol, or CBD, which has anti-inflammatory benefits but doesn’t bind to the brain’s receptors the way THC does.
