USA. Politicians consider legalization of high-CBD cannabis
Josh Stanley, co-breeder of Charlottes Web
Senator Rick Perry has proposed a USA bill which would legalize high CBD varieties such as Charlottes Web. The bill comes following some remarkable work with high-CBD varieties and the amazing results that the cannabis oil has had on young children suffering from ailments including epilepsy. These high-CBD varieties contain so little THC that they are incapable of getting people ‘high’. CBD, or cannabidiol to use the full name, is highly valued by many medical marijuana users and is only just beginning to be understood by medical researchers.
What is most remarkable about this story is that Perry is against recreational cannabis but is fully committed to legalizing high-CBD varieties. In time politicians will be pushing to legalize high-THC varieties. But for now it is great news that politicians are starting to realise that cannabis does indeed have numerous medical uses
