CBD History Begins in the 1940s

The first person to successfully extract CBD from the Cannabis sativa plant was Roger Adams, a chemist who graduated from Harvard university. Adams first managed this in 1940 but was not aware that he succeeded in extracting a chemical compound. It wasn't until years later, Adams and other scientists realized the potential of CBD started researching the possible benefits.

In 1946, Dr. Walter S. Loewe conducted the first CBD test on lab animals. These tests gave proof that CBD doesn’t cause an altered mental state. Later that year, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam's CBD three dimensional structure credited him as  scientist who discovered CBD. Further research continued in the 1960s on primates and finally, the first CBD oil meant for therapeutic use was released by the British Pharmacopoeia.

In 1980, Dr. Mechoulam made breakthrough discovery in CBD history when he ran a study which showed cannabidiol could be a key factor in treating epilepsy.
