Dr. Dedi Meiri, from the Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Cannabinoid Research at the Technion, shares insight from his research into cannabis for various medical applications.
Dr. Meiri is among the world’s leading scientists dedicated to studying and understanding the very real healing properties of one of the world’s oldest medicinal plants, cannabis – including how it might help in the fight against COVID-19.
Cannabis, was first prescribed by the name, ‘Ma’ in 2700 BCE by Chinese healers. What these ancient healers didn’t know about cannabis, is that there are 144 unique strains of phytocannabinoids, aside from the more common CBD and THC strains. Dr. Meiri and his team have been diligently working on isolating and categorising these 144 individual cannabinoid strains, quite simply so that their healing potential can be further understood.
Dr. Meiri is interviewed by Adam Miller.
