CBD Becoming Developing Sector
“As the hemp CBD consumer markets continue to evolve, what is increasingly clear is the health and wellness segment is becoming more prominent,” Zohar Krivorot, the CEO of Global shopCBD.com, said in a statement.
With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill in the U.S., CBD represents a developing sector with many vendors seeking national reach to U.S. customers. The rise in popularity for CBD products is driven by consumers seeking natural-based health and wellness solutions to treat various ailments from inflammation, anxiety to insomnia amongst many others.
The hemp-derived CBD market has been estimated to reach $22 billion by 2022.
