This link, https://www.google.com/patents/US6630507, will show you the patent that the U.S. Government filed on cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants back in 1999. This patent was filed when they first started researching the healing benefits of CBD. CBD that is pulled from hemp plants is legal in all 50 states and people are able to benefit from all of its attributes.
THC is a class 1 drug in most states which makes it illegal to be produced and administered. Many synthetic cannabanoids that are being made by the pharmaceutical industry have been tested, but have not been able to pass phase 3 trials which would allow them to be produced for the public in the U.S.
Fox News has aired an interview with Ty Bollinger who was behind the series “The Quest for the Cures”. This highlighted the health benefits of CBD that was pulled from the hemp plant. The series explores causes of cancer and the treatments for cancer that are considered alternative medicine.

One of the aspects that these articles discuss is how CBD and ECS works together. The ECS is the endocannabonoid system in our body. The ECS can be considered the portion of the body that helps regulate the state of balance the body is in. CBD uses the ECS to help foster healing in the body.
How Does CBD Work With the Body?
The reason that CBD works so well for many health problems is tied to the interactions with the body's endocannabanoid, which was mentioned earlier. This also helps the body stimulate the CB1 and CB2 receptors. The body is helped by having homeostasis or a balance in the body.

How to Make CBD Oil From Home
It is not recommended that you make your own CBD oil at home simply because it requires a skill set and foundational knowledge that the average person won't learn in its entirety. However, for the sake of demonstration and further understanding of the process for which to create Cannabidiol we have a demonstration video.
