WHAT IS CBD
Many leading doctors, scientists, and experts in the field believe that combining CBD with the full spectrum of other naturally occurring Cannabinoids, Terpenes and Flavonoids found in this special strain of hemp, may offer a range of measurable health benefits never seen in the pharmaceutical, food, or dietary supplement industries.
By the late 1930s, the war on cannabis erupted, and the cultivation of cannabis became illegal. Again in 1970, cannabis cultivation was banned by the Controlled Substances Act, which listed cannabis — including both hemp and marijuana — as Schedule I substances with no medicinal benefits and a high risk of dependence.
In the late 1960s the mysteries of cannabinoids, including CBD, began to unfold as researchers discovered the role of the human endocannabinoid system in maintaining good health. We’ll discuss this in more detail shortly.
Over the past few decades, there has been an explosion of research into the health benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids.
CBD has been quickly gaining acceptance in the U.S. as a result of media coverage by respected health experts such as Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The message of CBD’s healing powers is beginning to reach the masses.
Modern technology has provided methods of refining and isolating CBD, and even increasing the bioavailability of CBD oil through technologies such as nanoemulsions which make CBD water-soluble and increase its potency.
The demand for CBD is growing so quickly that sales are expected to surpass $1 billion by 2020.
