There is marijuana that does not get people high.
As I have mentioned in the past, there seems to be a conflict between marijuana that has medicinal properties and marijuana that gets you high.
Marijuana that is more medicinal is believed to be high in a chemical called CBD. CBD does not result in intoxication.
Marijuana that gets you high contains large amounts of THC.
Till now if you smoked medical marijuana you were going to get high and frankly that is what most medical marijuana users want. That may be changing.
Just saw a piece on MSN about an Israeli company that is growing a high CBD variety of marijuana that has medicinal properties but does not get you high. MSN included a link to the BBC original article that can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20189347
Let me know what you think about this.
