Weed That Doesn’t Get You STONED

Weed That Doesn’t Get You STONED?

DECEMBER 5, 2011

For decades growers have tried to create the most psychoactive, the most mind-blowing weed possible…so it seems a li’l odd to be going the opposite direction doesn’t it?
Newsflash haters, not everyone who smokes weed is looking to get high.

Speaking of high…it’s the THC or tetrahydrocannabinol that gets ya high. But, there are many other chemicals contained within the herb that have a myriad of beneficial and healing effects on the body.

When it comes to medical applications it’s not the THC most patients and doctors are after, but rather CBD. CBD or Cannabidiol makes up nearly half the plant, about 40%, has NO psychoactive effect and has been shown to not only help relieve convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea, but also inhibit cancer cell growth! One more time: inhibit cancer cell growth! That’s huge.

Back in November 2007, researchers at the California Pacific Medical Center reported that CBD shows promise for controlling the spread of metastatic breast cancer. In essence CBD represents the first non-toxic external medicine that can inhibit cancer cell growth.Additionally, many promising studies have shown that CDB could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of tough-to-control conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, PTSD, epilepsy, atibiotic-resistant infections, neurological disorders and even alcoholism. That’s right…there’s a marijuana strain out there that scientist think will help people end battles their struggle alcoholism.

Oh, and CBD alone is completely NON-INTOXICATING. That’s why it’s been nearly bred out of current strains of marijuana. But, that’s all about to change.

Steve DeAngelo of the Harborside Health Center and Weed Wars on Discovery“Ultimately, there will be greater demand for CBD-rich cannabis, than there is for cannabis that just gets you high,” says Steve DeAngelo, Executive Director of the Harborside Health Center and Discovery Channel’s Weed Wars Star“Only a small percentage of people enjoy the psycho activity of cannabis, but almost everybody can benefit from its medical properties”.

In a post-marijuana prohibition age, where pot prices are plummeting and wreaking havoc on growers, businesses, towns and counties throughout California, DeAngelo has started a program to identify strains with high CBD levels and he’s encouraging growers to propagate them. This whole new paradigm shift is just another way the marijuana industry is stimulating the economy during this  dismal economic time.

Now that there’s weed available that doesn’t get people STONED…that’s actually providing lucrative new job opportunities and medicinal possibilities…maybe more people will accept marijuana’s rightful place as the HEALING OF THE NATIONS!

  1. I can nderstand that they would want to create strands of cannibus for fuel that they would want to make toxic in some way for humans to be used for fuel and deter people from stealing it , even if it is legal as it should be but if cannibus growers are such great engineers of plant maby they should being the ones creating new strands of corn so it grows larger and can feed more people or any other plant for that matter . The idea that modern growers have created plants that get people higher than plants of the past is a myth and i believe these tests are flawed and full of lies . The chemicals in cannibs work in conjunction to acheive desired health effects .
