The history of hemp and CBD
Although it has long suffered from a bad reputation, confused with its neighbor cannabis, hemp is one of the oldest plants cultivated by Man for its medicinal virtues and its use as a textile fiber. Today, it is making a comeback and its ecological qualities make it an indispensable plant for our future. With very little water consumption, hemp grows alone and everywhere, without any chemical products, and can be incredibly useful in many fields: food, paper mills, construction, cosmetics and even the pharmaceutical industry. Everything is used in hemp, from its seeds to its stalks or its oil.
And it is, of course, from this great green plant with many uses that CBD is extracted!
What is CBD?
An acronym of Cannabidiol, this molecule is one of the many cannabinoids (around two hundred according to the World Health Organization) present in the hemp flower, among which there is also tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But if these molecules are close, their effects are different. Contrary to THC (classified as a narcotic drug), CBD is legal with a level of less than 0.2% THC (according to French legislation). At this level, it does not produce any euphoric effect. In other words, it does not make you high, does not alter your state of consciousness, does not cause addiction, and is not dangerous to your health. In fact, it is quite the opposite…
What are the benefits of CBD?
If CBD is so popular, it is mainly because of its multiple benefits on our well-being in the broadest sense. And if there are a plethora of ways to consume CBD, in food supplements, e-liquid, herbal tea, candy, cream… The most widespread method is in its oil form.

CBD is said to be an effective anxiolytic. Consumers have reported numerous positive effects on their stress level, anxiety, and the quality of their sleep. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to relieve joint pain such as arthritis, rheumatism, menstruation, and migraines.
CBD also contains antioxidant properties and protects the epidermis from environmental stress, pollution and provides relief from skin problems such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It could even have possible positive effects on more serious pathologies such as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, or fibromyalgia.
However, cannabidiol is not considered a medication. CBD does not treat any pathology, it only alleviates the symptoms. Research on CBD around the world to study the enormous potential of this molecule of happiness is multiplying, and current studies tend to demonstrate the positive effects of CBD oil on our body.
