Over the past few decades, CBD, a natural supplement derived from hemp, has been making a name for itself in the realm of health and wellness. CBD is helping those worldwide who suffer from ailments such as chronic pain, depression, and cancer-related symptoms. It accomplishes all of this without having the same psychoactive properties as its brother, THC.
Since it is such a miracle medicine, it only makes sense to reserve August 8 to show CBD some well-deserved appreciation.
A History of National CBD Day
Hemp is one of the oldest industries on the planet, dating back thousands of years into ancient times. In American history, one of the first, well-known hemp growers was George Washington. He even had American colonists growing it for him at the time. It wasn’t until 1937 that the Marijuana Tax Act was passed that it became difficult for American farmers to grow hemp.
Hemp is currently a booming industry. There are millions of CBD consumers that rely on it for both common and serious conditions, ranging from sleeplessness to chronic depression and pain. The beauty of CBD is that it is able to deliver a number of advantages without side effects. It has also become one of the most versatile medicines because it can be ingested, inhaled, or put on the skin.
The holiday was founded by CBDMD in the hopes that it would spread CBD awareness to help cure millions more around the world.
“The benefits of CBD oil are unlike anything any pill or medication can do.”
- Tom Hanks
