The history of cannabis use dates back thousands of years, with some sources placing it amongst the oldest cultivated crops in human history. However, widespread mainstream distribution of CBD is a recent development, in part due to a long history of restricted legal status and an association with marijuana.
CBD is non-psychoactive, and its possible effects can be subtle depending on the user. So, why are so many people hopping on board the CBD train? The answer lies in its long list of possible therapeutic benefits, both purported and scientifically verified.
Thanks scientific studies and first-hand accounts, it’s clear that CBD has a slew of therapeutic applications. But the need for more data is a commonly-held notion amongst cannabis researchers. As the CBD market grows, it will pave the way for more studies, and the list of its benefits will get even lengthier.
