History of CBD

History of Cannabis
• First reported as medicine > 8,000 years
• Introduced into Western medicine in 1840s by Dr. W.B.
• Cannabis extracted from cannabis plants was the medicine of choice
in the early 1900s
• It was promoted as analgesic, sedative, anti-inflammatory,
antispasmodic and anticonvulsant properties
• In the mid 1900’s we learned that we have our own Endocannabinoid
system. Humans make our own endocannabinoids
• In the late 1990’s we discovered that we have endocannabinoid
receptors in every organ system of our bodies.

Legislative Regulation

Act (CSA)

cake made from seeds, any other compound, manufacture, salt, derivative,
mixture or preparation of such mature stalks (except resin extracted
therefrom), fiber, oil, or cake or the sterilized seed of such plant which is

• Naturally occurring cannabinoids in agricultural hemp foods including oils,
were never scheduled under the CSA
