Hemp has been cultivated for over 4,800-years and was first cultivated for fiber by the ancient Chinese in 2,800 BCE. However, for most of that time, people didn’t really understand the plant’s properties.
For example, CBD wasn’t discovered until 1940 by Roger Adams. He was able to isolate CBD and CBN (another cannabinol) 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 has begun to soar and more and more healthcare products have been developed around it.
