Although research into the components of cannabis have been conducted for over a century, it wasn't until the 1930s that Robert Sidney Cahn discovered its structure and helped unravel how cannabinoids work. CBD itself wasn't isolated from cannabis until the 1940s by American Roger Adams and his colleagues. He also demonstrated its relationship with THC, the psychoactive component that produces the 'high'. This component is not present in any of our chewable CBD tablets, making them 100% legal. Fast forward twenty years and Dr Raphael Mechoulam, an Israeli chemist, described the structure and chemistry of cannabidiol. This pioneering work has...

With today's busy lifestyles, insomnia affects many people. Its effects are wide-ranging from bouts of extreme tiredness during the day - which can be very dangerous - to an inability for your body to fight other illnesses since it doesn't have time to rebuild its natural defences.

As with most studies, results were variable. In a study published in 2020, participants received medical CBD prescriptions for a variety of ailments, including neurological and mental health symptoms. 70% of study participants reported some level of satisfaction with CBD treatment,...

In humans, the job of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is to regulate your body so you can live comfortably. It is responsible for all your sleeping patterns, eating, and even social habits, as well as controlling inflammation (especially of the skin) and pain. It aids neurons by elevating hormone levels that are too low or decreasing ones that are overabundant. Receptors on the surface of neurons and cells can receive messages from other cells, and instruct the inside to respond appropriately. The two receptors that are the focus of this post are CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are most commonly...
