The History of CBD

CBD and Traditional Chinese Medicine

The CBD industry is still relatively new, but CBD itself has a long and fascinating history. CBD was first used by humans more than 4,000 years ago when it was used as an ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine. 



The History of CBD

2018 Farm Bill

The CBD industry exploded in the past few years as CBD-infused products became more accessible. This is thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill which legalized hemp production and CBD distribution on a federal level. The 2018 Farm Bill removed CBD from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s list of controlled substances and also allowed for CBD products to be freely sold nationwide as long as they are made from hemp extracts with less than 0.3% THC content. This bill allowed CBD products to be sold to customers across the United States.

Today, CBD products are more popular than ever before and CBD oil tinctures, CBD topicals, and other CBD-infused products continue to be sold nationwide. With CBD being more accessible and research supporting its potential health benefits, it’s no wonder that CBD has become a popular wellness supplement.
