Throughout history, we can mark and track the rise and fall of industries as they succumb to the finicky nature of social trends, government-controlled regulations, and overall general needs and use. As products grow with popularity and become increasingly necessary, useful, and sought after, they inevitably reach a peak where they are generally accepted, produced, and purchased at rates and volumes never seen before. With the right message, an innovative style, catchy branding or the luck of a celebrity caught out in the open using their product, (We see you Leo!) any business can become viral and explode overnight! More traditionally, however, the growth and success of any business has to endure the slower process of building one step at a time.
Over the past few decades, we’ve witnessed the legal battle and social argument over the legalization and acceptance of marijuana in our personal lives and as a determined legitimate business. Entangled in this is the curious journey of previously little known CBD. As one of the most popular and profitable products over the last several years, CBD has grown from an assortment of random letters to a regular household product your Granny takes every night. She’s hipper than you think! Let’s explore why and how CBD got our attention and its place at the center of a booming industry!
A Brief Introduction to CBD
Cannabidiol or CBD for short is a chemical found in the Sativa plant cannabis also known as hemp or marijuana. It’s the non-psychoactive counterpart to the marijuana plants’ more popular chemical THC. While everyone’s bodies and systems respond differently, it’s generally accepted that intaking CBD oil and other forms of ingesting CBD won’t get you “high”. A major plus for those seeking alternative forms of pain relief but don’t want to feel like they’re at Woodstock. With the passing of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (Farm Bill), CBD derived from hemp became nationally legalized, opening the door for businesses to reach the American public a host of new product choices and options for how they choose to find health and healing. With ever-increasing research and testing throughout the CBD world, the debate is still ongoing as the conclusive health benefits and pain alleviation CBD can offer. However, a recent study showed 14% of adult Americans use CBD, with 40% of those users claiming their use for pain relief, while 20% find it supports lower their anxiety and 11% use it to aid in getting better sleep.
