CBD: WHO, WHAT WHEN, WHERE & WHY?
WHO & WHEN
CBD (cannabidiol) was discovered by Harvard University-trained chemist Roger Adams in 1940. Later, in 1964, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam expanded on Adams’ research and was able to identify both the properties of CBD and THC.

CBD is the second most prevalent chemical in Cannabis, the first being THC. CBD does not cause a high like THC does but it has been shown to have relaxing properties. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and has more of a physical effect. Because it is not psychoactive, CBD is legal- this is not to say that it still doesn’t have a stigma surrounding it given its close relationship to THC.

WHERE & WHY
Due to diet, work culture, and lack of access, holistic health has been on the rise. While research on CBD is still rather new- through self-studies, animal testing, there have been many other suggested benefit of CBD. Like THC in marijuana, there has been research showing that CBD may aid in reducing the effects of insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, and inflammation without the more intense “high” of marijuana. Further, there has been no evidence that an individual can become addicted to CBD itself. In fact, CBD has been shown to lower the cravings of certain addictive substances.
There is new research on CBD almost weekly and because of that, the list of possible benefits is growing rapidly. CBD seems to be here to stay and as cannabis and its products become legal you will begin to find it in more and more things. At Maikai we are looking forward to learning more alongside you all and work tirelessly to deliver the best products and highest quality CBD every time.
