The CBD market is primed and it’s ready to explode. With a consumer market expected to grow to over $2.1 billion dollars by 2020, so if you don’t know what CBD is, then it may be time to learn.

CBD is one of the more than 85 cannabinoids so far identified in marijuana and hemp. Unlike the better-known compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it won’t cause a high. Thousands of studies have shown that CBD possesses an array of therapeutic benefits, including antioxidant and neuroprotective properties.

CBD Market Estimated to Grow to $2.1B by 2020, Report Finds “Hemp-Derived CBD is estimated to account for $450 million”

Thousands of studies? Yes, literally thousands of studies. Even the US government has participated in the research, under the guise of various National Institutes of Health agencies such as the National Library of Medicine.

All of this positive research turns into positive reactions in the media, like this great article from the Huffington Post, which increases public awareness and creates demand.

According to the Hemp Business Journal by way of Forbes:

The Hemp Business Journal estimated that the CBD market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources. That’s a 700% increase from 2016. In 2015, the market for consumer sales of hemp-derived CBD products was $90 million, plus another $112 million in marijuana-derived CBD products which were sold through dispensaries – bringing a total CBD market to $202 million last year.

The Cannabis Market That Could Grow 700% By 2020

The growth described by the Hemp Business Journal and Forbes is already starting to be reflected in legal, publicly traded cannabis stock indexes.

According to a recent report by New Frontier Data, the Viridian Cannabis Stock Index gained 236.1% in 2016 and outperforming such mainstream indexes as the Russell 2000 (up 19.5%), the Dow Jones Industrial Average (up 13.4%), the S&P 500 (up 9.5%), and the Nasdaq composite (up 7.5%). New Frontier Data also reported that legal cannabis sales in California alone are projected to reach $2.8 billion in 2017 and $6.6 billion by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate of 12% over the next eight years.

The Hemp CBD Market Projected to Surge

To be 100% clear, CBD will only make up a portion of the projected $2.1 billion dollars by 2020, but if you believe Business Insider, it will be a “significant portion.

A significant portion of the total legal cannabis market is the CBD market. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the part of the cannabis plant that is usually used for medical purposes, and is a natural component of industrial cannabis or hemp. Growth of the medical cannabis market is expected to accelerate as the products become more popular treatments for various medical applications such as chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sleep disorders, anxiety, nerve pain and others. Bethany Gomez, the Director of Research at Brightfield Group said, “Essentially everyone is trying to do hemp, but only a handful are doing it well.”
