UC Davis study investigating synthetic CBD

A UC Davis study has been testing the effectiveness of a synthetic CBD in treating seizures in rats, and found it to be as effective as the natural compound. In theory, artificially produced cannabinoids could offer great medical benefits, without the need to cultivate cannabis plants. BUT, some synthetics piercing the market are toxic, if not lethal. If the cannabis stigma, based on misinformed understanding, has been difficult to overcome for natural / non-synthetics options, considering the very real damage synthetics have caused, it seems doubtful that they will ever find a way into regular consumption.
