National CBD Day Is Here

Within a relatively short amount of time, cannabidiol (CBD) has made a big impression on the cannabis world.

While tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has traditionally been the primary cannabinoid of interest due to its generally pleasant psychoactive properties, CBD has managed to gain prominence in a relatively short time.

An Unassuming, Yet Powerful Cannabinoid

But even though CBD is now experiencing a never-before-seen level of popularity, its discovery took place more than half a century ago.

In 1940, chemist Roger Adams was the first to successfully extract CBD from cannabis.

The cannabinoid’s chemical structure was later identified in 1963 by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam who, along with other scientists, later began researching CBD’s anti-epileptic properties.

In 2018, President Donald Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp across the country and opened the door for CBD to achieve its full potential.

With CBD being a primary ingredient in anti-epileptic medication and a vast array of modern personal care and pet products, the powerful non-psychoactive cannabinoid has also received a day of recognition.

If you’ve never tried CBD, or if you use it every day, now is the perfect time to try some and celebrate this weekend with National CBD Day on Sunday, August 8.

If you’re unsure of which products to try, you may want to start with a topical product or a tincture to relieve pain.
