Did you know that the global CBD market is expected to accelerate reaching $23.6 billion? Europe’s CBD market alone is set to grow by 400% over the next five years, and the total U.S. industry sales of CBD are estimated to total around $417 million in 2020! CBD has become the talk of the town for its health benefits, and quite a few celebrities have contributed to the hype. We’ve attempted to make a comprehensive list of world-famous people who advocate for CBD. But first, a little intro to CBD and its positive effect on health.
CBD may seem like another hype-generating notion. However, there is evidence that CBD is a good supplement for the management of various health conditions. Scientists have been conducting rigorous studies on cannabinoids and acknowledge CBD as an addition or even an alternative to traditional medicines. For example, Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management journal has published several studies that demonstrate CBD potential in anxiety and stress control, as well as pain relief.
The positive CBD effect on health manifests itself via the influence on the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It was initially considered to be present only in the brain and nerves. Yet, in 2008, the scientists from the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Indiana University, Bloomington discovered cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, including skin, fat tissue, our immune cells, bone, liver, pancreas, heart, skeletal muscle, blood vessels, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract.
