History of CBD and Hemp

Phytocannabidiol or hemp derived CBD oil, has been used around the world for thousands of years for industrial and medicinal purposes.

CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant and is legal in all 50 states

The 2014 United States Farm Bill, Section 7606 defines “industrial hemp” as a derivative of the cannabis sativa plant with a THC level that does not exceed 0.3% on a dry weight basis. The Bill allows industrial hemp to be grown, cultivated, and marketed for research educational purposes. In 2015, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act was passed by Congress to remove all restrictions on cultivating industrial hemp and have it removed from the list of Schedule 1 drugs as long as it has a THC level lower than 0.3%. Now after many years, scientific research supports many medicinal and therapeutic benefits with the use of CBD hemp oil. The government even holds a patent, #6,630,507, ‘cannabinoids as anti-oxidants and neuroprotectants’. In the early 90’s 2 cannabis compounds were discovered in humans; Anandamide and 2-AG, which led to the discovery of the ECS, (endogenous cannabinoid system). This system of receptors is found in all humans and animals. When cannabis is consumed the ECS is activated and the endocrine, immune and nervous systems can now communicate with each other and work together to achieve homeostasis, or balance, in the body. CBD works at the root cause of health issues and every person is different.

Research has shown CBD to be anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-fungal, anti-tumor, anti-oxidant, antipsychotic, anti-seizure, and neuroprotective. CBD is non-toxic and does not alter psychomotor or psychological function and does not create a dependency.

CBD is found to be well tolerated and safe for consumption, even in high doses and with chronic use. A doctor should be consulted when considering to use functional medicine, alongside a lifestyle change, such as a healthy diet and exercise.

CBD oil is taken for many different reasons from acne and sleep, to opiate addiction, to chronic pain and inflammation.
