The key figures in CBD's history book
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 shaped a large portion of today's understanding of the effects of cannabinoids.
As recently as the late 1980s, Allyn Howlett and William Devane discovered the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). They were able to uncover the receptors that later became known as CB1 and CB2, as well as leading to the discovery of anandamide, isolated by Lumír Ondřej Hanuš. This cannabinoid neurotransmitter is also referred to the bliss molecule, and is even present in chocolate.
CBD promotes anandamide instead of binding directly with CB1 and CB2 receptors, which allows the body to respond quickly and efficiently to imbalances. Increasing anandamide levels in the body has been found to allow its own well being to be improved.
That's why we believe nutritional supplements can help almost anyone.
We diligently research every component that goes towards making our products so you can be sure they're backed by spear-heading science. If you'd like to know more, please get in touch.
