History of CBD
Cannabis contains over 100 cannabinoids, or main active ingredients. The most common are CBD and THC. Apart from cannabinoids, cannabis contains Terpenes and Flavonoids, compounds with huge therapeutic potential that can enhance the effects of cannabinoids. In1940, Roger Adams, a chemist from Harvard, extracted CBD from the Cannabis sativa plant for the first time and wasn’t aware of what he had found. It wasn’t until years later that Adams and his team of scientists realized the extent of his discovery and began to research the possible benefits of CBD. In 1946, Dr. Walter S. Loewe became the first person to test CBD on animals. Through these experiments, it was discovered that CBD does not have mind-altering effects. That same year, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam identified the structure of CBD and became known as the doctor who discovered this substance.We are currently seeing the prejudice surrounding CBD and cannabis unravel, as more and more people are starting to recognize the huge medicinal potential of this plant
