CBD Through History

CBD Through History

 Taking a look back at the history of #CBD shows we've come a long way. In the next 20 years we could propel the use of this molecule scientifically and use it to better humanity. 
CBD 'Discovered'
British chemist Robert Cahn had reported the partial structure of the cannabinoid CBN, but it was American chemist Roger Adams who was able to identify and isolate CBD, which eventually led to the discovery of THC.
Godfather Mechoulam
Known as the godfather of cannabis, Raphael Mechoulam was able to isolate and identify the structure of CBD, allowing them to test how it interacted within the body. This eventually led to the discovery of the ECS (Endocannabinoid System).
Making Progress
Mechoulam and other scientists pioneer studies looking at the potential applications of CBD, determining that it can reduce the frequency of or completely stop seizures due to some forms of epilepsy
Charlotte's Web
Dr. Sanjay Gupta exposes the world to Charlotte Figi's story, where a CBD oil was used to take her seizures from 300+ a week down to 2 or 3 a week. The story resonates across the world and CBD began it's meteoric rise to fame.
Recent Wins
D.E.A. reschedules pharmaceutical CBD admitting possible medical uses with low chance of abuse, and the F.D.A. declassifies hemp as a Schedule I controlled substance and legalizes hemp cultivation.
It's so hopeful that throughout it's adversity CBD always can rely on Science to be on it's side. In the past and in the future.
