The Benefits of CBD
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is one of the naturally-occurring substances found in the cannabis plant. CBD is just one of the cannabinoids present in cannabis, and it is known for its relief and wellness properties. CBD is non psychoactive and is considered a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety agent. CBD can be beneficial for a variety of illnesses and conditions including but not limited to stress disorders, cancer, arthritis, migraines, PTSD, chronic pain, many neurological disorders, recovery after heart attack and much more.
CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant and diluted with a carrier oil to meet the desired dose. The oil can be made into a tincture which is taken under the tongue, a topical serum which is used on the skin, or a water soluble that dissolves in water or any other drink. CBD is also infused into edible products or made into capsules for other methods of consumption.

Why haven’t CBD Hemp Oil products been available to the public before now?
Though the history of cannabinoids Is extensive and encompasses many countries, Americans have been systematically misled about hemp, CBD and THC (the widely known psychoactive property of cannabis).
A Celebrated History of Benefits Spanning Thousands of Years.
Hemp has been grown for over 5,000 years for its fiber – used for rope, twine, fabric and so on. Since at least 1500 BC, hemp has been widely used as medicine. Many scholars believe that the gall and vinegar, or myrrhed wine, offered to Jesus immediately after the crucifixion was, in all probability, a preparation of hemp.
Queen Victoria used hemp extracts for menstrual cramps and anxiety. Her reign from 1837-1901 paralleled the explosive growth of hemp based medicines.
From 1842 to 1900, cannabis made up half of all medicines sold. From 1850 to 1937, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis as the primary medicine to treat more than 100 separate illnesses or diseases.
The Politics and Greed Behind the Hemp Prohibition.
Unfortunately Americans had been denied the healing effects of cannabis since Harry Anslinger, head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (1931-1962), pushed through legislation that had been crafted in secrecy for 2 years. The result was the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act ‘that made hemp and marijuana illegal for any use.
Historians believe Anslinger’s actions were at the behest of Randolph Hearst and Dupont petrochemicals. A machine had been invented to easily strip fiber from hemp. Therefore, high quality paper could now be made cheaper than using traditional wood pulp. Randolph Hearst owned millions of acres of forest land that supplied paper for his newspaper empire. With this new invention, Hearst’s land would be worthless.
Dupont was against hemp for a similar reason. Although more expensive to manufacture, hemp fiber was a far superior fiber to the new nylon fiber Dupont was producing. However this same invention would also make hemp fiber less costly to produce therefore, lowering nylon fiber’s value. Both men would incur large financial losses due to this invention. What if they could stop this threat by outlawing Hemp?
Anslinger and others utilized tabloid sensationalism (via Hearst’s newspapers) to convince members of congress and the public of the dangers pf hemp using the relatively new word marijuana (Spanish slang for cannabis). The American Medical Association (AMA) and the pharmaceutical industry testified against the Tax Act because cannabis was known to have so many medical uses with no observed side effects. Dr. William Woodward who was both a physician and an attorney for the AMA, testified on their behalf. He said in effect that this law passed in ignorance, could possibly deny the world a wonderful medicine, especially now that the medical world was just beginning to discover which ingredients in cannabis were active.
Dr. Woodward and the AMA were quickly denounced by AnsJinger as well as the entire congressional committee, and curtly excised. At this point cannabis, both hemp and marijuana, was 100% illegal and NO further medical studies were done for nearly 30 years world-wide due to the Government’s demonization of cannabis. In the years following the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act, the American medical community had been led to believe that cannabis had no use as a medicine.
Hemp Redemption: Distinguishing the Two Sides of Cannabis.
In 1964, professors in Israel finally developed conclusive evidence that the cannabis plant species can either be grown as:
Hemp – which has a weak amount of natural THC or
Marijuana – which historically had been selectively bred for higher and higher THC
Professor Raphael Mechoulam and his colleague, Yechiel Gaoni, at the Weizman Institute of Science, isolated, analyzed and synthesized the main psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis plant as tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Ruth Gallily, a professor emerita of immunology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, studied another main constituent of cannabis that is cannabidiol, or CBD.
Armed with the studies’ results, Professor Mechoulam urged producers over the years to grow cannabis with less THC and more CBD. Taking Professor Mechoulam’s advice, a government approved medical marijuana farming to cultivate a high CBD and low-to-no THC. After years of careful breeding, they developed, Avidekel, a strain rich in CBD but with little to no THC. This breakthrough has allowed tens of thousands of Israelis to enjoy the health benefits of CBD.
America Finally Recognizes Hemp’s Potential.
Finally accepting what their predecessors knew 100 years ago, many in the government and medical community have slowly come fun circle on cannabis. They have accepted that CBD hemp oil is not negative and should not be illegal but that it should be embraced and used for its many health benefits.
In 2003, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services filed a U.S. patent on CBD (#6630507) that covers CBD treatment for various neurodegenerative and inflammatory disorders. Because of the February 6, 2004, Federal Court Ruling Nos. 03-71366, 03-71693, every US citizen can legally use CBD (extracted from industrial hemp high in CBD without illegal amounts of THC). But it would still be a decade before the medical community would begin to embrace the full benefits of CBD.
In 2013, as a result of his own investigation, Dr. Sanjay Gupta MD, a renowned Neurosurgeon and Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Emory University School of Medicine, shocked the medical community by completely changed his stance on medical marijuana, cannabis and hemp. The world was astonished by the CBD patient cases he profiled and the positive effects CBD oil was proven to have on human health. Since the other medical influencers including Dr. Mehmet Oz, known from “Oprah” and current host of his own TV show and ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor, Richard Besser, have also been convinced of the beneficial properties. of CBD.
Today, we know that CBD oil is simply the most exciting and beneficial byproduct of cannabis. CBD American Shaman of Suntree.
