Israeli scientists take the high out of weed

In a move unlikely to win Israel new friends abroad, Israeli scientists have figured out how to neutralize the chemical in marijuana that makes users high.

A new type of marijuana developed in Israel contains no tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the active ingredient in the cannabis plant that causes mind-altering effects when the plant is smoked.

Instead, the new breed contains a higher level of cannabidiol (CBD), another component of the plant which is not high-inducing, but does offer beneficial effects for patients suffering from various symptoms.
