The marijuana plant grown for seizure patients like 8-year-old Forrest Smelser is special, Jim Murphy with TJ's Organic Gardens said.
He said that unlike marijuana plants grown with a high THC level in mind - the psychoactive ingredient responsible for marijuana's "high" - Forrest's plant has less than 1 percent of THC.
"We're not getting children high. We're just giving them medicine, and that's what makes this plant special," he said. "It has a very low THC, and very high CBD."
Murphy said the plant has been given the name CBD, an acronym for another active cannabinoid in marijuana known as cannabidiol. CBD is the chemical believed to be treating seizure patients like Forrest.
