While CBD may be a new term to you and a fairly recent addition to American vocabulary, it is not new to medicine.
Like many other natural remedies – the use of CBD and medical marijuana is rumored to have been a part of ancient societies since the first recorded use case occurred around 2727 BC, when Emperor Sheng Neng of China used a cannabis-based tea to help with a variety of health ailments that included poor memory, malaria, and even gout.
Since then, its use has spread, but the documentation of this case is less-than-readily available.
Then, in 1940, a team from Illinois University isolated CBD for the first time, bringing to life the fact that there were active compounds in the cannabis plant that did not contain the psychoactive qualities commonly associated with the plant and the CBD industry has grown a lot since then.
To put it simply: CBD has come a long way since it started to gain attention. It’s potential for medical use and therapeutic use, along with the treatment of various medical conditions is more than promising based on the most recent clinical trials. CBD history is fascinating; wouldn’t you agree?
