Cannabis is one of the earliest cultivated crops, grown in Taiwan for fiber starting about 10,000 years ago. The Emperor Shen-Nung, a pharmacologist, wrote a book on treatment methods in 2737 BCE that included the medical benefits of cannabis and recommended it for many ailments, including constipation, gout, rheumatism, and absent-mindedness.
Published studies, with CBD, date back to the 1980s with one of the first completed on mice. These studies have continued throughout history to understand the importance of cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system (ECS) as this system is present in all mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish. The following are the most recent published studies highlighting the amazing effect CBD has on all these wonderful creatures.
