One of the most important figures in cannabis research, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam is an Israeli chemist who has been studying cannabis longer than anyone else alive.
He was the first one who thought to isolate the plant’s chemical components and study them. Almost everything we know about what cannabis does inside our bodies comes from his research. He discovered THC, as well as the analogous chemical that exists naturally in our bodies, which his team named “anandamide” – a play on the Sanskrit word for “bliss”.
PotNetwork brings you Dr. Mechoulam’s interview at the High Times D.C. Business Summit in its entirety. We believe his message is an important one and deserves to be seen.
