Efforts to isolate the active ingredients in cannabis were made in the 19th century. Cannabidiol was studied in 1940 from Minnesota wild hemp and Egyptian Cannabis indica resin. The chemical formula of CBD was proposed from a method for isolating it from wild hemp. Laboratory evidence indicated that cannabidiol may reduce THC clearance, increasing plasma concentrations which may raise THC availability to receptors and enhance its effect in a dose-dependent manner. In vitro, cannabidiol inhibited receptors affecting the activity of voltage-dependent sodium and potassium channels, which may affect neural activity. "Then, years later, cannabis … started coming to the forefront, and there was research and data backing up everything I felt on the mountain." Some trends the CBD market might experience in 2020 are increased potency of products, more brick-and-mortar CBD shops, more pharmaceutical CBD products, and more access to products online through CBD websites and e-commerce shops. In fact, CBD online sales currently account for 60% of the sales channels. Just remember not to accidentally buy hemp oil, because it’s not the same thing. While delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is the major active ingredient in marijuana, cannabidiol is also obtained from hemp, which contains only very small amounts of THC. The owners of two new businesses in downtown Madison are currently stocking up on the wares for their shops, which will serve customers interested in computer technology and the nonnarcotic products gleaned from hemp plants. “The problem for many companies is that the range of permissible claims for cosmetic and personal-care products is narrow,” Prochnow notes. Brands may market and sell only nondrug products intended to cleanse, beautify, promote attractiveness, or otherwise alter the skin’s appearance, he says—and none of those benefits appear to be attributable to CBD or hemp. Special attention should be paid to the claims that are being made about the product.
