National CBD Month

Hemp has been cultivated for over 4,800 years and was first cultivated for fiber by the ancient Chinese in 2800 BCE. However, for most of that time, people didn’t fully understand the plant’s properties.

For example, CBD wasn’t discovered until 1940 by Roger Adams, who was able to isolate CBD and CBN (another cannabinoid) from the hemp plant. After the discovery of CBD, scientists have continued to unlock its secrets and discover its potential in wellness products.

As people began to learn more about CBD’s potential, its popularity began to soar, and more healthcare products have been developed around it. Now, there’s even a month that celebrates it. January is celebrated as National CBD Month every year and continues to put a spotlight on the potential of this ingredient in helping people deal with pain and other health issues.

The History of National CBD Month

This month was officially created by a company known as cbdMD. This company provides a variety of CBD products for people. The month was officially celebrated for the first time in 2019 and has been observed ever since.
