The first hemp crop dates back to 6000 years ago in China.
Hemp is a plant that contains more than 400 natural compounds, among which there are the two main groups of molecules with active properties: terpenes and cannabinoids. The CBD belongs to the latest compounds.
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in cannabis. It has been widely demonstrated that this molecule has different therapeutic properties, including the ability to relax the body. Although it acts on our body offering important benefits, CBD does not have psychoactive properties as its closest relative: THC.
The main conquest of cannabidiol was the publication of a report by the World Health Organization (WHO) stating that “the CBD is not addictive”, “does not cause adverse or psychoactive effects”, “does not imply risks for individual or for the society” and possesses “promising therapeutic properties”.
