ABOUT US

The CBD Benefits is an educational, informational and news cannabidiol resource.
We’re dedicated to providing people with the most reliable CBD information based on scientific findings.

How it all started

A few years ago, we realized the lack of factual CBD information available in the market. Many CBD websites make false claims in order to entice people to buy their CBD products. Unfortunately, this tactic is still widely used today. We noticed this trend and decided to take a stand and create The CBD Benefits.

We started by gathering a group of CBD enthusiasts who love spreading cannabis awareness. We worked with the public to learn more about your questions and provided accurate answers. This method worked out tremendously well and that's why well still use it today.

Our team of experts scour the web to gather reliable CBD data and provide you with the most up-to-date information. For example, the FDA approved the first purified form of CBD in June of 2018.
