HISTORY OF CBD

As far as history is concerned, it has CBD or Cannabis Sativa as a part of it. It might surprise one to know that even at the dawn of civilization, Cannabis was cultivated in a large number.

And according to some, like the famous Carl Sagan, cannabis was the binding material of last of the hunter-gatherers. Which might indicate that cannabis was the first crop to be cultivated and harvested 10,000 years ago and archeologists agree that roots of Cannabidiol was, in fact, the first to emerge at the end of the first ice age.

One thing about Cannabis Sativa is that it is extremely versatile. And the ancients had known it for almost eight thousand years. Evidence has been found that seeds and cannabis oil was in use in China dating far back as 6000 BCE. In another two thousand years, China and Turkestan had taken up textile made up of hemp or cannabis.

After a few more millennia, its use became global as we can see seeds and ropes being transported to Iceland by the Vikings in the year 850 AD. By 1000 AD, Arabs and Italians were making papers and ropes out of hemp respectively. But the main use of cannabis according to contemporary consumers, healing or medication, has also been seen throughout the history as noted by Greek philosophers and many other notable personalities.

The modern restrictions only arose in the twentieth century. Before that, many countries made Cannabis Sativa a mandatory crop. King Henry VIII made it illegal and fined farmers for not cultivating cannabis. In 1850, cannabis made itself a medically recognized drug across the United States and was used accordingly across the country until 1915.

By the 1950s, United States declared it illegal to cultivate cannabis even as an industrial raw material.

But in the recent years, we have been seeing many changes and lobbying across the country to restore the legal status of CBD which has been running for ten thousand years and has a lot more to go.
