Marijuana politics is getting complicated in the west with more and more countries legalizing the stuff for both medicinal and personal use.
My question has less to do with Marijuana and more to do with its cousin hemp. Hemp is an industrial/agricultural plant used for a variety of things in industry.
One of the more notable things about hemp is it produces a substance called CBD which is what is typically found paired with THC (the substance that gets you high in marijuana)
CBD doesn't have psychoactive effects. It doesn't produce the high that people get when they use marijuana and it has been found to help with a variety of medical conditions from seizures to Parkinson's symptoms and so on.
Have there been any notable Rabbinical statements which attempted to differentiate CBD from Marijuana in terms of how the Rabbis define intoxicants vs medications?
Do the Rabbis typically group everything into one category or have we reached a point where Rabbis have started to differentiate as new data on CBD comes out?
