At a government-sanctioned cannabis cultivation facility in northern Israel, researchers at Tikun Olam have developed Avidekel, which, at zero percent THC and 15.8 percent CBD, provides all of the healing power of cannabidiol with no discernible high. Avidekel has shown promise in treating a variety of conditions with minimal side effects. “The cannabis plant, enriched with CBD, can be used for treating diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, liver inflammation, heart disease and diabetes,” explained Ruth Gallily, professor of immunology, at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
