Why CBD? - Dr Richard Watson PhD
"For the span of human history people have not only used plants to derive basic nutrients but have also used them in various ways to treat, prevent, and alleviate symptoms of many common diseases and ailments. As science has advanced our ability to identify the underlying agents of these benefits, plant-based medicine has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry.
Many of these compounds and the plants that produce them have often been restricted in their use, or made illegal given their potency and psychotropic properties. Cannabis Sativa is probably the most ubiquitous of these. The unintended, and unfortunate consequences of making this plant illegal was that the wide range of highly beneficial compounds produced by it were excluded from human consumption because of their association with the psychotropic THC.
Of the many other cannabinoids present in Cannabis, cannabidiol or CBD, has created the most interest from a pharmaceutical and human health perspective. With Cannabis and its products becoming legal again in many countries and states within the USA, we can once again begin to explore and benefit from its ability to support human health and nutrition."

Why Dr Richard Watson got into CBD & Hemp
Dr Watson Cannabis is founded with a team of passionate people who genuinely believe in the power of cannabis to help people in all walks of life to improve general lifestyle and quality of living. Many people associate Cannabis and interchangeably use the term with Marijuana - the recreational plant that people use to get "high". But let us tell you that that would be wrong!
Cannabis Sativa L is the parents plant of Marijuana and Hemp, Marijuana is the plant that contains higher levels of THC which is used recreationally, Hemp is the version of the plant which does not contain high levels of THC. But you can extract CBD from both of these - These is one of the many noteworthy cannabis compounds we use in our products!
Although hemp has been around for thousands of years, it has always been associated with "that drug that gets you high", we want to remove that stigma surrounding cannabis and show the world just how versatile Hemp really is.
The Extreme Diversity of Hemp
While buying cannabis oil has become the trendy thing to do and is what is catching the headlines, there are actually so many phenomenal ways in which we can use hemp in industry. Hemp Paper, Hemp plastic, Hemp Clothing, Soap, Rope, Fiber, Hemp Milk, Canvas, Carpet, Mulch, and even Hempcrete! Thats right there are now companies making concrete but literally made from hemp.
It is easily one of the most diverse plants out there and we have only scratched the surface on how much we use it. We believe hemp is the future, not only is it extremely diverse, but it is very environmentally friendly. It requires very little attention, water, pesticides etc to grow, and takes out more Carbon Dioxide out of the air than most plants. It is also 100% biodegradable. So you know if you are buying a product made from Hemp, then you are supporting an environmentally responsible product / company. Please Read our Blog Regarding some of the uses of hemp here
