CBD MINI LESSONS (6) : THE HISTORY OF CANNABIS / HEMP picture

It may surprise you that the hemp plant ( from which cannabis , CBD , hemp oil , hemp cloth etc ) is derived , has been in use for at least 10 000 years.

Archaeological discoveries have shown that hemp was used in an ancient village in Taiwan in 8000 BC. The earliest known uses were for clothing and shoes. Archaeologists also discovered a remnant of hemp cloth in Mesopotamia ( now Iraq/Iran ) dating back to 8000 BC. It was recorded in ancient China in 4000 BC that hemp was one of the 5 grains of China ( a major food crop ) . Recorded history from 2737 BC in China recognizes Hemp's ability to treat over 100 illnesses. Ancient civilizations used Hemp for difficult childbirth , convulsions ( seizures , epilepsy ) , rheumatism , dysentery and insomnia.

Hemp ( Cannabis Sativa ) is indigenous to Central and East Asia and the Indian sub-continent. Probably through trade it later spread to the Middle East  , Egypt , some parts of Europe and The Americas. As time progressed the plant was used for paper , paint , ink , insulation , ropes , clothing , ritual practices , art canvas , plastics and medicinal uses. Virtually none of the plant is wasted.

CBD is extracted from the flowers , stalks , stems and leaves of industrial hemp ( a cousin of the marijuana plant ) . CBD is a powerful compound that acts against oxidative stress and inflammation causing illness in the body. In all about 120 compounds ( cannabinoids , flavonoids , terpenes and other chemicals ) are extracted , of which CBD is the most abundant.
