Here our story becomes very personal. Philip, one of our three founders, was an enthusiastic neuroscience student in the summer of 2014. He was intensively involved in studies on CBD. Inquisitive as he is, he starts building a CBD knowledge platform. At the time Philip found that a lot of companies in the US offered hemp extracts with CBD. However, in Europe, only very few, very high-priced manufacturers were present at the time. They produced CBD extracts by means of alcohol extraction. The alcohol left in the extract left a very bitter note that many people didn’t like. Philip’s idea was our challenge at the same time: We set ourselves the goal of offering high-quality CBD extracts through gentle CO2 extraction at fair prices, thereby making the versatile effectiveness of CBD available to as many people as possible. Philip got full-strength business support from his longtime friends Sven and Thomas. Half a year later cannhelp was founded.
