The use of Cannabidiol (CBD) dates back thousands of years to the tail end of the first ice age. Archaeological evidence shows that cannabis sativa, the source of CBD, was one of the first crops cultivated by the early man.

Many associate the growing of cannabis with the modern world. In reality it is linked to the advent of agriculture some 12, 000 years ago.

Carl Sagan, an icon of scientific credibility, believed that cannabis may have been the world's first cultivated crop. This made it crucial to the development of civilization. There is no doubt that cannabis has played an integral part in human society since ancient times.

Cannabis has always been an extremely versatile plant. Its seeds and oil were used as food by the Chinese people as early as 6,000 BCE. Around 4,000 BCE, both China and Turkestan made textile from its fiber, while the Arabs learned the technique of making paper from hemp.

Contrary to the modern restrictions imposed on cannabis growth, King Henry VIII of England often fined the farmers who didn't raise hemp for industrial purposes.

In the early 1850s cannabis was used in the U.S.A, as a medicinal drug that could easily be bought from pharmacies and in general stores. Nonetheless, in the mid - 20th century, the cultivation of Cannabis was prohibited in the U.S.A and UK.

Now things are changing once again and quickly. Interest in hemp products, especially CBD, have motivated farmers and activists across America. People are lobbying for the legalization of cannabis for medicinal purposes, and it's working.

In 2014, CBD's use was legalized for medical purposes in several states across the U.S.A, representing a landmark in the annals of CBD. The legalization also marked the first instance of CBD use in states that previous use of medical marijuana was prohibited.

With so many health benefits, CBD continues to grow more popular.

What is CBD?

CBD is an acronym of cannabidiol, a chemical compound derived from the plant cannabis sativa – also known as hemp. CBD is a naturally occurring compound that is used for pain, anxiety, seizures, and muscle disorders.

CBD is commonly used in products such as oils and other edibles for relaxation and pain relief. CBD is non-psychoactive, unlike THC, which is the primary active ingredient in cannabis. Therefore, CBD won't create a high feeling like THC does.
