CBD Oil - A Brief History



Cannabidiol (CBD) has been showered with attention as people learn more about its incredible potential as a supplement. You may think that this consumable has just been recently discovered with the number of articles and research studies written about it. It is true that a lot of CBD extraction and packaging methods utilize state of the art technologies but the use of CBD in its hemp oil form goes farther back than what most people know.

The public began to observe the profound effect of CBD oil could have in treating many life-threatening aliments, especially in children, during the early 2010. One great example is from a young family in Missoula Montana who used CBD oil to treat their 20 months old son who had been diagnosed with brain cancer in 2010. The child's condition was just worsening that his tumor was inoperable as well. After using every treatment option available which includes 30 rounds of intensive radiation, Ketamine, Morphine and Methadone treats, the family had finally hit their limit. In an effort to provide is small child relief, his father did something what was thought out to be crazy at that time and gave his son highly concentrated cannabis extract, not knowing what else to do at that point. After the first attempt, his son's stage IV brain tumor had shrunk! Though it was unorthodox, the father was applauded by medical professionals and even spoke with the press to spread news on how CBD oil is a lifesaver. His son lived for another two and a half years, passing away after the State of Montana made a change in the legislation that impaired the family from getting easy access to the cannabis oil that their son needed.

 The most prolific case of CBD oil and its success is the 2013 story that gained national press. A 3-year-old girl named CharoletteFigi suffers 300 grand mal seizures every week. Similar to the family above, her parents thought and tried everything they could. Her parents then watched a documentary about the first medical marijuana dispensaries in California centered around testing strains of CBD and other cannabidiol contents. The California center testing was one of the first public assertions that cannabis was safe to ingest and has huge potential for medical purposes. CBD oils was able to treat about 99% of the young girl's seizures! CCN then aired on 2013 special on marijuana and its medicinal effects and potential.  Read more about cannabis at http://www.ehow.com/how_7552701_become-medical-marijuana-distributor.html.

These are only two of specific instances that prove how effective CBD oil can be.  As a result, many states are passing legislation that rapidly allow CBD oil to be used in a number of clinical studies as treatment plans. Research is still continuing to back it up with legitimacy and programs being funded globally to continue studies with CBD oil from Highland Pharms and its medical potential.
