CBD is short for cannabidiol, one of the naturally-occurring substances found in the cannabis plant. Because CBD is known for its relief and wellness properties, it has become widely available in products addressing anxiety, pain, insomnia, aches and inflammation.
Unlike THC, another byproduct of cannabis called tetrahydrocannabinol which is a psychoactive substance, CBD is not psychoactive meaning it does not pass through the blood-brain barrier and alters the brain.

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).
Hemp has been grown for more than 5,000 years. Hemp fiber has primarily been used for rope and fabric. About 3,500 year ago, people started to use hemp used as medicine. From biblical times to medical times to the Victorian times, hemp was used to treat a wide variety of ailments and conditions. During Queen Victoria’s reign, cannabis was used in half of all medicines.
Unfortunately, the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act made hemp illegal for any use in America when Harry Anslinger, head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics pushed misguided legislation on behalf of Randolph Hearst and Dupont petrochemicals. Both made millions by having hemp outlawed.
Though the American Medical Association and the pharmaceutical industry defended cannabis with its many medical properties, hemp along with marijuana was made illegal to use and to even study. Since that time, the American medical community has been led to believe that hemp had no use as a medicine.
In 1964, professors at the Weizman Institute of Science 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 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). They identified the main psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis plant as THC and another main component of cannabis that is CBD. They developed a cannabis strain rich in CBD but with almost no THC.
Finally recognizing what their peers knew 100 years ago, the U.S. government and medical community have slowly come full circle on cannabis and accepted that CBD hemp oil should be embraced and used for its many health benefits. In 2004, Federal Courts ruled that every US citizen can legally use CBD extracted from hemp that is high in CBD and low in THC.
Slowly, respected medical professionals including Dr. Sanjay Gupta MD, a renowned Neurosurgeon and Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Emory University School of Medicine, have profiled and confirmed the beneficial effects CBD oil was proven to have on human health.
