Tobacco Users Turn to CBD in Search of an Indicative Substitute

While the CBD market is still relatively new in many regions of the world, it has already experienced dramatic innovations over the past few years. The U.S. passed the Farm Bill in late 2018, which legalized the commercialization of hemp-derived CBD products and catalyzed the market. Entrepreneurs then began to develop new methods of consumption of CBD-based products, such as concentrates, extracts, edibles, beverages, tinctures and cigarettes. Overall, CBD became popular as more researchers began confirming that it offers a number of therapeutic benefits. For instance, researchers noted that CBD can alleviate minor medical conditions such as headaches or soreness as well as potentially suppress symptoms associated with severe conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, and chronic pain. As a result, the global hemp market is projected to grow by 23.1% during the forecast period between 2019 and 2025, according to data compiled by QYR Consulting.
