I know you have heard of the National Stoner Holiday known as 4/20, and chances are if you are reading this you also have heard National Dab Day on 7/10, but have you heard of a national holiday growing in popularity every year that is National CBD Day on 8/8?
History of CBD and Cannabis
After decades of cannabis prohibition, mass consumers have been led to believe that CBD is a relatively new product and that could not be farther from the truth. The history of CBD (and cannabis as a whole) is not a new one, as cannabis-derived substances have been documented all throughout history, dating all the way back to 2737 BC with Chinese Emperor Sheng Nung using a cannabis-infused tea to aid with a variety of ailments. You can read the complete history of cannabinoids, the medical benefits of cannabis, and the use of CBD as a treatment for a variety of ailments here.
The Origin of CBD Day
Traditionally, when one thinks about National Holidays you think about these hallmark holidays that have been set in pop culture for decades but with National CBD Day, that is not the case. It turns out in 2017 a North Carolina-based cannabidiol manufacturer, cbdMD applied to have “National CBD Day” added to the National Day Calendar Database to promote the many positive wellness effects that come with CBD and raise awareness for the growing cannabidiol.
