As creators and sellers of the finest CBD oil product and patch in the world we thought it would be a good idea to take a brief history tour of cannabidiol in this blog article.
A team of investigators from the University of Illinois isolated CBD for the first time in 1940 and the compound was thought to be pharmaceutically inactive. In 1946, Dr. Walter S. Loewe, a chemist conducted the first CBD tests on animals.
The chemical structure of CBD was extensively established in 1963 by a chemist Raphael Mechoulam which aided in confirming that CBD was a nonpsychoactive component of cannabis.
At the beginning of 1970, the therapeutic benefit of CBD was studied. Based on a study conducted by a team of Brazilian scientists in 1973, CBD averted the convulsions prompted by epilepsy in animals. You can find the mention of CBD tinctures for medical use by the British Pharmacopoeia in the mid-1970s. In 1974 researchers also uncovered that CBD acts as an anxiolytic thus reduces anxiety. The soporific effects of CBD were also found at this time. Clinical trials conducted in the 1970s proved that the chemical compound decreases nausea generated by chemotherapy. Several studies substantiated that it ameliorated sleep in patients experiencing insomnia.
In 1982, a group of scientists discovered that CBD has antipsychotic properties and it hindered symptoms like de-personalization and altered perception. The experts started using the compound only in the year 1988 after locating the cannabinoid receptors that exist in the human body. The findings unfolded the door to advanced studies in various medical areas.
In the1990s, CBD was declared to be a powerful cellular antioxidant by National Institutes of Mental Health and could be used in the treatment of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. In the 2000s, the studies conducted showed that the naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis not only moderates the progress of rheumatoid arthritis but also has anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. Numerous studies conducted over the last decade have found further evidence that CBD can be utilized in the treatment of diseases like schizophrenia, anxiety, cancer, epilepsy and, cardiovascular diseases. One of the success stories of CBD usage was of Charlotte Figi, a young girl whose rare seizure was treated using CBD which appeared in an American publication.
In spite of the constraints the researchers face, the studies on the benefits of CBD continues to be carried out. With the inflation in the number of countries that have approved the use of medical cannabis come increasing hopes that researchers will confront fewer difficulties in a not-too-distant future. In the United States of America, numerous food and beverage products are infused with CBD and have been introduced to the market recently. These products are marketed as containing CBD, but in reality, contain a minuscule amount or none.
In recent developments, some states have banned the use of CBD as a food additive. California, for example, recently passed legislation that prohibits adding CBD into food items or anything taken orally. This essentially bans all forms of CBD usage as most are taken through the oral route.
So while research, and subsequently, acceptance of CBD has grown ever since its discovery at times we as a society can take a few steps back as seen in these recent regulations in California.
The great news is since our patches are not consumed and are not a food item, the recent regulations do not apply to our patches in California. Of course there is no issue so far in any of the other states. Furthermore, we are able to infuse 120mg of PURE CBD derived from organic and pesticide free hemp plants grown in the banana belt region of Oregon.
Since our refinement process removes all the THC, there are no psychoactive effects you might get with other CBD products which have more crude extraction technology.
Now you can easily enjoy pure CBD with our Nano CBD Patches. Instead of taking harmful prescriptions, try out 15% OFF CBD subscription plans and naturally lower anxiety, reduce stress, and improve the quality of sleep.
