Cannabis has been outlawed for nearly a Century in much of the World; But a new cannabis revolution is upon us. Once again the cannabis plant is being embraced for its medicinal qualities and under strict regulation Doctors can now prescribe medicinal cannabis for a variety of known issues. (epilepsy, MS etc.). With the re-acceptance of the plant the common compound produced by cannabis Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is still illegal in most countries. The rise of CBD=Cannabinoid.
The second most common compound, produced by Sativa L plant, research has found promising potential, discovered and isolated in the 1940’s CBD didn’t possess THC and was not psychoactive (hallucinogenic), prohibition meant research was limited.
In 1980 CBD’s Potential for an anticonvulsant therapy that was known by ancient societies for thousands of years had been rediscovered.
CBD products entered the commercial market mainly as health/food supplements in oil/tincture and capsule form. However, over the last few years, a huge variety of products have emerged, including edibles, beverages, skincare.
This expansion may be down to the continued legalisation of cannabis in a small number of Countries. E.G. The 2018 US Farm Bill legalised the cultivation and use of hemp (low-THC cannabis) at the federal level. This meant that companies were free to extract CBD and develop products for export for the first time.
While regulation is finally improving in the UK, there remain a large number of poor quality CBD products on the market – At Quantum1cbd you can be assured that our products are of the highest quality and certified in the UK by a leading CBD manufacturer.

Cannabis made its way to England as a treatment for rheumatism and convulsions. And the oil soon became popular as a go-to cure for various ailments such as migraines, nausea, sleep, coughs, fevers, and many others. It remained available to the Western world into the 1940’s.
Where did it go wrong?
The late 1800s saw a massive cash grab in pharmaceuticals and many companies making outrageous claims of their ‘Cure-all formulas’. In 1906 the FDA was formed to regulate anything sold for consumption in the USA. Which had a detrimental effect on the production and consumption of cannabis oil, seeing an end to the plant’s longstanding popularity. The Western world entered the prohibition era, a movement that quickly spread throughout the World and drastically changed the perception of this once crucial crop. The final nail in the coffin was in 1937 when non-medicinal cannabis use became illegal in most of the Western world and a criminal activity.

Medicinal cannabis became more controlled and no longer commercially viable with the introduction of the 1937 marijuana tax act.
W new synthetic materials in the form of plastics, varnishes, and rubber replacing the need for hemp based materials across industries. Pharmaceutical companies once proud to provide cannabis oil, distancing themselves from their history. Recreational use throughout the late 20th century lead to much hysteria about cannabis being a dangerous drug, and it is still legally classified as such in most societies across the World. At last we’re seeing this being reversed and if done with good regulation (as in Canada) it will be back to help those that need it.

In the modern era, cannabis made its way to the new world of the Americas. Initially hemp was cultivated for the textile industry, but cannabis was soon recognised by the medical community. By the 1700s, American medical journals were actively promoting the benefits of cannabis, presenting it as a treatment for a variety of health issues.

However, it wasn’t until the mid-1800s that cannabis became commercially available and accepted as a medicine. The man responsible was an Irish physician by the name of William Brooke O’Shaughnessy. Known for his works that led to the intravenous drip. William was also a strong advocate for cannabis as a medicine, spending much of his life studying botanical pharmacology in India, validating that India had been using cannabis for thousands of years.

Blog 1 Brief History of CBD


To understand the history of CBD we have to go back to the beginning, some say as far as 15,000 years ago when first discovered by man.
Archaeological digs show hemp was certainly present as far back as 5,500BC for various uses. Evidence gathered from ancient sites reveal the plant was important in many societies especially Egypt, China and India.
Ancient China believed cannabis tea was a cure for gout, rheumatism and malaria, while the ancient Egyptians believed it had an effect as an anti-inflammatory.
Cannabis eventually made its way to the West through trade in the middle ages which lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. In western medieval cultures cannabis is documented as treatment for tumours, coughs and jaundice.
The Netherlands was an economic superpower in the 17th century as a result of shipping, and without hemp, there would not have been a Dutch Golden Age!
Hemp was used for their ship’s sails, rigging and other ropes. Hemp was also treated with tar and used to fill the seams between the planks of a wooden hull in order to make ships watertight. This process is called caulking. Sailors’ clothes were often made of hemp and Captains kept their ship’s log on hemp paper. Lamps used hemp oil, allowing the crew to read the Bible (you guessed it, was printed on hemp paper). In order to make sure there was food on board, tons of hemp seed was an essential part of the cargo; this also enabled the crew to survive in the event of a shipwreck. The Dutch are still an advocator of the benefits.
