Cannabidiol (CBD) in recent years has become one of the biggest trends in the spa and wellness market. There are countless CBD-infused products on the market from face oils, eye cream and massage oils to supplements, water and even gummies. Why are there so many companies selling CBD products? Is it truly beneficial? Let’s take a step back and look into the history of CBD and how it has become a must-have in the spa and wellness world.

CBD History

Cannabis plants have been around for thousands of years. They were first discovered in ancient China. Cannabis is thought to be the oldest cultivated plant, with remnants dating back to 10,000 BCE. The father of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, Shen Nung, first noted the benefits of cannabis in 4,000 BCE. The benefit of the entire cannabis plant including stalk, stem and seed (which is said to be the most nutritious of any plant) have been noted for thousands of years. Interestingly enough, the cannabis plant was thought to be one of the most powerful healing plants in ancient times.
