What is CBD?
Five years ago, many people had never heard of CBD. Now “CBD” is in everyone’s vocabulary, but what exactly is it?
CBD is a natural alternative often used to help with mood, discomfort, sleep, and so much more. Derived from the hemp plant, CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a molecule produced by the Cannabis family.
In this article, we will discuss 10 facts about the history and uses of CBD that you might not yet know.
1. CBD is not the only Cannabinoid found in hemp.
For example, our broad spectrum formula contains CBD, CBG, and CBDv, all of which add to the efficacy of the formula, and bring their own benefits to the table.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, doesn’t have the psychoactive effect like THC, another known cannabinoid. It’s known for helping improve mood, skin, mental and physical conditions, and more.
CBG, short for cannabigerol and is also non-psychoactive, is accepted by both receptors of the endocannabinoid system within the body and acts as a precursor to CBD. CBG is known to help with many physiological systems and symptoms.
CBDv, which stands for cannabidivarin, is very similar to the structure of CBD but has its own unique neurological benefits. Like the above cannabinoids, CBDv is also non-psychoactive
2. CBD was first extracted in the 1940’s
CBD may seem new and exciting, but it has actually been around for quite some time! It is amazing how far CBD has come since then.
At that point, scientists were able to study individual cannabinoids, but for 20 years CBD stayed in the background while the emphasis was placed on THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, for its psychoactive effects. ( )
3. CBD has medicinal value.
In 1978, New Mexico passed the Controlled Substances Therapeutic Research Act, a bill which legally recognized the medicinal value of cannabis. This act was instrumental in getting CBD research where it is today.⠀
4. CBD: A natural alternative during the opioid epidemic
When medical professionals started to become aware of the threat opioids present, they turned their eyes to more natural forms of care.
Much of the CBD research we have today resulted from this pivot toward natural solutions.⠀
5. CBD’s popularity skyrocketed
