While barely anyone had heard about CBD a decade ago, today CBD is a household name. It’s really more than a household name, if you think about it. It’s more like the most popular health and wellness product ever. So popular, in fact, that the CBD market is projected to be a $22 billion industry by 2022.

CBD has exploded. It’s in beauty products, food, supplements, coffee and even stirred into cocktails at several upscale bars and restaurants across the country. CBD is in…and (almost) everybody’s doing it.

Want to know more about the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that’s been hailed by some advocates as a “miracle”? Check out the following little-known facts about CBD.

9 Facts About CBD You Might Not Have Heard About

1. Hemp is Believed to be the World’s Oldest Cultivated Crop

Hemp, which most CBD oil is derived from, has a history that dates back some 10,000 years, and many believe it could be the world’s oldest cultivated crop. The use of hemp rope was found in pottery that dates back to 8000 B.C. in what is now modern-day Taiwan. In 1977, Carl Sagan, the renowned author, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, cosmologist and scientist, suggested that the Cannabis sativa plant possibly led to the development of mankind itself.

2. CBD Could Counteract the Negative Effects of THC

There’s evidence that suggests CBD could alleviate the anxiety that can occur with THC. There are several that contend that if you consume too much THC and anxiety and paranoia follow, taking CBD can help alleviate it. Is it really true, though?

In short, yes…for some. But you’ve got to take into consideration that there are a lot of underlying factors that influence the nature of a person’s anxiety, as well as how they respond to both CBD and THC. There are several studies that show CBD contains anti-anxiety effects.

According to Martin A. Lee, author of the book Smoke Signals, “CBD interacts with THC in complex ways, diminishing certain effects (the munchies, sleepiness, the high) while augmenting others. Cannabidiol balances the buzz and softens the euphoria — or, in some cases, the dysphoria — induced by THC, which, in concentrated form, can make people feel very loopy and weird. CBD is the yin of THC’s yang.”

3. CBD Was First Discovered in 1940

While CBD has only gained increased attention over the past few years, it was actually discovered in 1940 by a chemist named Roger Adams who had studied at Harvard University. In 1946, Dr. Walter S. Loewe performed the first clinical CBD test on lab mice. In 1963, Raphael Mecholaum, Israeli chemist and professor often referred to as the “Father of Marijuana Research,” established the structure of CBD.

4. CBD Could be Beneficial for Addiction Recovery

It’s no secret that addiction rates have skyrocketed. There are a lot of legal and illegal substances out there that can cause dependency, but CBD might be able to help.

One review found that CBD “has been shown to be an agonist of 5-HT1A serotoninergic receptors and to regulate stress response and compulsive behaviors.” What does this mean? Basically, that CBD blocks the serotonin receptors that are responsible for the brain response that makes using certain substances pleasurable. It also means that CBD can help moderate the stress response that leads to the compulsive urge to use drugs.

A study in 2013 found that smokers that vaporized CBD every time they had the urge to smoke over a one-week period reduced the number of cigs they smoked by 40%. And this was without “trying” to quit smoking. Another study investigating the effects of CBD on cigarette smokers found that an 800mg oral serving of CBD each morning reduced the allure of “cues” to smoke cigarettes (with morning coffee, talking on the phone, after finishing a meal, with a cocktail) where smokers would normally tend to have a cigarette.

There is also increased research being conducted on how CBD could be of potential benefit for those who have unfortunately found themselves part of the opioid epidemic. There is evidence that suggests CBD is “a potential beneficial treatment for opioid abuse,” however, more research is needed to establish exactly how CBD might help.

5. Research Shows That CBD Could Contain Neuroprotective Properties

CBD has shown to contain neuroprotective properties in both cell cultures and in animal models of many different neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and alcohol-induced neurodegeneration.

What exactly does it mean that CBD may be neuroprotective? If CBD is a neuroprotectant, that means it helps decrease damage to the brain and nervous system while promoting the growth of new neurons. While more research is undoubtedly needed to explore exactly how CBD may support neuron health is needed, preliminary evidence seems positive.

6. Almost Half of the People who Use CBD Stop Taking Traditional Medications

In the largest survey of CBD use to date, it was discovered that 42% of people that used CBD had stopped taking traditional meds like Aleve or Tylenol, as well as prescription drugs like Vicodin. Of these individuals, 80% found CBD to be “very or extremely effective.”

Could CBD be a natural alternative to traditional pain relievers? There are several studies that CBD is effective for managing pain, however, CBD works differently for everyone. There’s only one way to find out if CBD could help reduce intake of traditional and prescription pain meds…try it for yourself and see!

7. CBD Is World-Famous for its Ability to Reduce Seizures in Rare Forms of Epilepsy

The fact that CBD can reduce seizures in rare forms of epilepsy is the reason it became so popular in the first place. In 2013, CNN ran a story about Charlotte Figi, the young Colorado girl who found relief from the 300 grand mal seizures she was having each week.

When the story came out, there were only 42 patients (including Charlotte) who were using CBD. Today, parents all over the world are finding that CBD helps reduce the number of seizures their epileptic children experience.

CBD is so adept at reducing seizures in rare forms of epilepsy that the FDA recently approved Epidiolex, the first CBD drug ever to be FDA-approved that contains a purified substance derived from cannabis.

8. Evidence Indicates CBD has “Considerable Potential” as a Therapy for Multiple Anxiety Disorders

If you’re someone who suffers from anxiety, you’re certainly not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting some 40 million people. Evidence shows that CBD has “considerable potential,” however, for multiple anxiety disorders, including:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Social phobia

In fact, the most popular reasons people use CBD are for chronic pain and anxiety. It’s believed CBD is so effective for anxiety because of its ability to boost the signaling of serotonin receptors, which can reduce symptoms of anxiety and (in some cases) boost a person’s mood.

9. Increased Hemp Production for CBD Extraction Could Save the Bee Population

Here’s something you might not know about CBD. Growing hemp could help save the bees. Recent research in Colorado suggests that when there are few other flowering plants, hemp cultivation could be extremely beneficial for bee populations.

In what is believed to be the first survey of bees in cannabis fields, entomology student Colton O’Brien of Colorado State University in Fort Collins found 23 of the 66 types of bees that live in Colorado ended up in two experimental hemp plots over a one-month trapping survey.

“You walk through the fields and you hear buzzing everywhere,” says O’Brien. He believes that commercial hemp farms may just end up as rare food sources for bees during stressful times (like when there are no other flowering plants).

And you thought you knew everything there was to know about CBD! These 9 little-known facts about CBD are by no means all there are. As more research is conducted on CBD and the myriad of benefits it contains, there’s bound to be more and more interesting information on CBD to come. Want to learn more?

    “Wonderful Group to work with. Everything from fantastic products, prices, customer support, beautiful packaging to fast, friendly service. Joy Organics is family and feels like family! And why it is included in my line of ‘Paulines Preferred’.”

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
