Connecting You To The World Of CBD
CBD is the scientific abbreviation of cannabidiol, a chemical compound predominantly found in the cannabis sativa plant. It is a naturally occurring substance the medicinal effects of which have been explored for thousands of years. Historical records document its first uses as a treatment around 2700 BC by the Emperors of ancient China. We can see its historical and current use as one of the holy medicines of India. Ancient Egyptian medical scrolls discovered at dig sites reveal a long and vibrant tradition of treatment. By 1000 AD, CBD even reached European shores where it was in use as a folk medicine to treat symptoms of some illnesses.
It was not until the 1940s however, that CBD was isolated from the psychoactive qualities of the cannabis plant. While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, modern CBD is actually derived from the hemp plant, which is marijuanas cousin and as such is devoid of the psychoactive delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) ingredient of marijuana.. According to the World Health Organization, “…in humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…” To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
In contemporary times, CBD is widely used as a treatment for anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and inflammation. The European Journal of Pain revealed that skin application of CBD could help treat the pain and inflammation symptoms of arthritis. Other studies have demonstrated CBD’s ability to inhibit inflammatory and neuropathic pain, some of the most difficult types of chronic pain to address.
We have reached a remarkable moment in time, when modern science has validated what ancient wisdom has known about CBD for centuries.

Our journey to unlock and share the benefits of CBD began almost a decade ago. After travelling the world and coming across a broad variety of traditional and natural medicines, the seed of what was to become CBD Connect was planted. However, it wasn’t until a family member spoke of the pain relief that CBD brought to her arthritis that the idea began to grow.
With the rise of this exciting new industry, we wanted to help bring clarity to the products and to unlock what CBD can do for you. At CBD Connect we see a place for people to learn, to ask questions, and to share their knowledge and personal experiences so that, through a community environment, you can find the best product for your individual needs.
