National CBD Month – January 2025

National CBD Month in January serves the purpose of spreading knowledge and creating awareness of C.B.D. and its surprising benefits. Yes, millions of Americans have learned the benefits, but there are still those who would choose pharmaceutical drugs over this miracle aid. This is why there is a need to highlight the advantages of C.B.D. so more individuals in the world have access to it. Are you one of those who haven’t tried C.B.D? Well, this is the month to try it out and test all the rumors you have been hearing. Thank us later.

History of National CBD Month

While C.B.D. has been helping many people counter physical and mental ailments for years, its use has always had a stigma attached to it. This is because there is a legal ban on cannabis, and C.B.D. has several properties that are derived from the cannabis plant. However, over time, scientists recognized the benefits of C.B.D., and its usage became more common. Things took a step in a positive direction when the Farm Bill federally legalized all products of hemp in 2018. Hemp is a part of the cannabis plant with less than 0.3% T.H.C. With C.B.D., you get all the benefits from the controversial cannabis plant without getting ‘high.’ After the legalization, C.B.D. became more readily available across the country.

In 2019, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that C.B.D. ranked fourth in the U.S. for wellness-related searches on Google for the month of April. The report was a sign that C.B.D’s popularity was increasing and people wanted to know more about it. However, 35% of Americans were still not familiar with C.B.D.

cbdMD founded National CBD Month in 2020 to celebrate the increased availability of C.B.D. products. They are the official founder of National CBD Month and are on a mission to ensure more C.B.D. products are produced. C.B.D.’s numerous benefits include relief from pain. This is why many cancer patients are often prescribed C.B.D. At a time when medication can’t help, C.B.D. comes to the rescue.
