As more U.S. states legalize recreational cannabis and public interest continues to gain momentum, cannabidiol (CBDs) are seeing their popularity surge. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBDs do not get consumers “high” or impair them as stereotypically associated with marijuana. This allows consumers to benefit from the medicinal properties of cannabis, without getting “high” or dealing with effects of THC. In addition, hemp CBD oil is sold in all 50 states.
CBDs continue to be studied all over the world in order to learn their true medicinal value. However, many people have credited CBDs with easing the symptoms of some major ailments: Arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, chronic pain, inflammation, MS, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, PTSD, epilepsy, and more. However, more clinical testing and trials are needed to fully confirm what CBDs can treat.
According to market research firm, Brightfield Group, the hemp CBD market will be worth $1 billion by 2020. This represents an annual compound growth rate (CAGR) of 55% between 2017-2020. Brightfield Group attributes much of this growth to the fact that hemp-based CBDs remain legal in all 50 states and have remained “under the radar” of the regulatory issues surrounding the overall cannabis industry.
One company that stands to benefit from the massive growth outlook in CBDs is Canbiola, Inc. (OTC Pink: CANB).
