The big trend in medical marijuana: products that don’t get you high

Yahoo! Finance
I’m going to start this post with a confession. I, like many Americans, do not know very much about cannabis. I went to college, where I had friends in fraternities, and I’ve seen more of the movie Pinneapple Express than I care to admit. But when it comes to marijuana I know very little.

So when I was sent to cover the International Cannabis Association’s new marijuana certification program and accompanying conference, I was really not sure what to expect.

There were quite a few takeaways (more stories to come) but the first thing that jumped out at me is this: a large portion of the medical research going on is focused on the cannabinoids in Marijuana. There are 80+ of these cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and researchers think many of them may help medically with different things.
