What is CBD?
Because of the latest findings about the active ingredient CBD, the Hemp plant and its history as a medicinal plant is experiencing a true renaissance in this day and age!
The terms CBD and Cannabis are often associated with drugs and the Marijuana plant, which can cause intoxication due to its high THC content. However, CBD is derived from industrial or fiber Hemp. This Hemp variety (Cannabis Sativa) is very rich in CBD, many essentials and vital nutrients, but has very minimal traces of THC. The cultivation of this harmless industrial Hemp is now regulated by the EU.
CBD stands for “Cannabidiol” and is an effective main component of the Hemp plant. CBD is rich in essential nutrients and is therefore increasingly becoming the focus of medical research. The effect of CBD is very diverse and clinical studies are focusing on CBD and its control of body functions in terms of mood, insomnia, immune system strengthening, anti-inflammatory and much more.
Scientists also believe that CBD has the potential to maintain the body balance by interacting with our Endocannabinoid-System, supporting the the above-mentioned regulative functions.

Although CBD is regarded as the main component of the Hemp plant, the plant has over 100 other Cannabinoids, including CBDA, CBN, CBG and CBV. All of these different compounds amplify in a way that enhances the overall effect that each component can deliver. Full-Spectrum CBD-Oil is therefore the most advantageous and effective form of CBD-Oil.
In 1940, a group of American chemists at the University of Illinois published a scientific paper on the discovery and first-time extraction of CBD from the Cannabis plant. In 1963, the chemist Raphael Mechoulam of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem succeeded in further research to determine the chemical composition.
The Endocannabinoid-System in the human body was discovered in the late 1980s, paving the way for further research into Cannabinoids.
This was followed by numerous discoveries as well as new possible applications for Cannabis and CBD.
