By now, we’re well aware of the research that’s gone into CBD, both as a health-style product from marijuana and as a supplement from hemp.
In fact, there are lots of interesting historical and scientific facts that we think are worth mentioning.
#1. Royal Families have used CBD
Despite being stigmatized and restricted today, cannabis derivatives like CBD have been used throughout history.
One notable example is that of Queen Victoria, who ruled England from 1837 to her death in 1901.
Today, we have preliminary scientific evidence and plenty of anecdotes attesting to CBD.
#2. Hemp is one of the world’s oldest crops
Hemp – the CBD rich variant of the cannabis genus – may have been perfected thanks to modern agriculture, but it’s far from new.
In fact, archaeologists traced it back as far as the emergence of agriculture, between 12,000 to 10,000 years ago.
The late astronomer and marijuana advocate, Carl Sagan, proposed in 1977 that hemp may have actually been the first cultivated crop, although this is yet to be fully confirmed.
