Keep hearing the word CBD? For those of you who have, but aren’t exactly sure what CBD is— we encourage you to take a moment to read our easy to understand explanation. CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It’s obtained from cannabis plants through the process of extraction (intense pressure).
Now, here’s the thing—just because it’s is extracted from hemp-based and cannabis plants, it does not in any way have psychoactive effects as its cousin THC. THC is short for Tetrahydrocannabinol which is a psychotropic cannabinoid derived from the cannabis marijuana plant. It’s is actually one of more than 100 compounds found in cannabis plants. Hemp which has been grown under the industrial hemp farming act and used in CBD products contains 0.3% or less THC. So, in other words—it’s not going to get you ‘high’.
The wonderful thing about it is the vast array of health benefits it provides. So, while THC is mainly used for recreational purposes, the same can’t be said for CBD. It is now being infused into many common health and beauty products
The World Health Organization (WHO) report regarding CBD states “To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD,” and that it is “not associated with abuse potential.” They further state that CBD has “been demonstrated as an effective treatment.”
In the last year or two CBD has stepped out of the THC shadow and has been holding its own in the limelight. Are you ready for this? Did you know, as of now, CBD is growing at a significant faster pace than cannabis in the U.S. alone and is projected soon to be a $22 BILLION industry. Pretty insane isn’t?
As the number of consumers rises for industrial Hemp derived CBD infused products, it’s no surprise that the number will continue to steadily rise in the next few years. According to a report published by New Frontier Data, the CBD industry just in the US grew nearly 40% in 2017. This means that sales reached $367 Million across hemp-derived and marijuana-derived markets. The U.S. CBD market will soon expand its growth three main sectors, hemp-derived, marijuana-derived, and pharmaceutical.
As the list of health benefits grow, so does International demand for CBD.
