The Israeli government, in cooperation with the Volcani Center, is due to set up its first greenhouse company intended for the research and development of cannabis plant, otherwise known as marijuana. Among the plant’s other uses, the company will be looking into the plant’s medical benefits, from Alzheimer’s to cancer and inflammation. One hundred different cannabis species will be imported to Israel as part of this project.
