For thousands of years, humans have maintained an extensive record of the medicinal properties from the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. However, its legal status over the last 50 years has significantly hindered the application of advanced research practices. This has left us with a limited body of research and a lot of amazing stories showing the benefits of full spectrum CBD.
One thing is for sure, preclinical and clinical studies have and are strongly suggesting that CBD does have broad therapeutic properties. This has led to an explosion in scientific research and a race to know more about it. Below you will find some of this up-to-date research. Please check back as we will be updating this page regularly.
