The Marijuana Godfather Is Retired And Sober

In the early 1960s, Israeli chemist Raphael Mechoulam began studying cannabis when police gave him a batch of hashish through an evidence locker. Now, Mechoulam reveals that after studying the drug for decades, he never consumed it in fear of his research getting shut down. During that time, his team became the first to isolate and synthesize CBD and THC. This work certainly led the way for recent developments in cannabis research like the promising treatment CBD has on illnesses including cancer, epilepsy, chronic pain, anxiety, and some psychotic symptoms. Although Mechoulam is very excited for these discoveries and the future of cannabis research, he remains sober and retired.
