The Future Of CBD: What Business Owners Should Know
Is CBD a Growing Industry?
With so many cultural shifts happening worldwide – especially in the United States, where controversy is a constant – we can’t help but pay close attention. Because of this, to discuss the future of CBD, we must look at what surrounds cannabis use and its implications on the human body and brain.
Seen by some as a “dangerous drug” or as “highly addictive” till recent years, there has been a world of controversy surrounding cannabis and its use in medicine. Thankfully, much of this controversy and criticism has started to dissipate due to an abundant amount of research bringing forth new evidence on the benefits of consuming cannabis.
However, there’s still plenty of confusion and misinformation that needs to be clarified for people to explore with confidence what the cannabis plant has to offer. And for business owners to see the many opportunities of starting a CBD business.
In this article, we delve deeper into the positive effects of using CBD and why we believe its consumption will increase in the following years. We will also explore what the business opportunities for those looking to join the industry.
We aim to provide you with all the information you need to understand what CBD is, its effects on human consumption, and what the future of CBD looks like, both for consumers and at a business-oriented level.
The CBD industry is thriving now more than ever, and there are many reasons behind its spectacular growth. We aim to answer all possible questions arising around CBD, its consumption methods, and its effects.
But first, let’s see what CBD is and how it is different from the cannabis plant itself.
What Exactly Is CBD?
The effects of cannabis are common knowledge nowadays, but few people know that cannabis comprises more than 70 different active ingredients, also known as herbal ‘cannabinoids.’
The two most active of these ingredients have gained awareness, and they’re most likely familiar to you as well. One of them is THC or Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, and the other one is cannabidiol, our much-talked-about CBD. When looking at the future of CBD, we first need to shed light on its true nature and clear any myths and distortions surrounding its effects.
How Are The Human Body And Nervous System Equipped For CBD?
As scientific research has advanced, it’s been found that the human brain has a vital neurotransmitter system called the endocannabinoid system, made of three different components. Mind you, this is an active system in your body, regardless if you use cannabis or not.
Endocannabinoids are short for endogenous cannabinoids and are very similar to the cannabinoids we mentioned above in this article. The takeaway here is that your body naturally creates them.
When assessing the future of CBD, it’s important to note that ECS, the endocannabinoid system, is responsible for regulating the following functions and processes:
- Reproduction and fertility
- Motor control
- and many more.
When CBD is fully legalized, and its use is accepted as a form of treatment, the future of traditional medicine may take a new shift towards more natural forms of healing.
Till then, it’s time to see what kind of effects consumers have noticed when using CBD and what your clients may expect as well if you are planning to start a CBD business.
What Are Some Ways To Use CBD Products?
Being so versatile, CBD can be used and sold on the market in many shapes and forms. It’s true, the most efficient and streamlined way of using CBD is CBD oil. It’s ubiquitous in the industry by now and is found in the portfolio of all the major producers – to increase sales figures.
However, there are also other ways that consumers can reap the benefits of CBD, and this brings great promise for the future of CBD:
- Chewing on CBD gummies
- Swallowing CBD capsules
- Drinking CBD mixes
- Or applying CBD tinctures
Exploring The Potential And Benefits Of CBD
CBD holds plenty of potential in terms of what it can do for your client’s well-being and has become part of a list of wellness products that many seek after. All these are reasons that make us believe strongly in the future of CBD.
The thing that ties people in a knot is that they often get confused by the other active ingredients mentioned earlier that can be found in the cannabis plant – mainly THC.
However, the main difference between THC and CBD is that THC has psychoactive properties, meaning it can give you the famous ‘high’ many fear. However, a broad spectrum CBD product with no THC or a THC concentration of under 0.3% will never get most people high.
In other words, when using CBD like this, you will get a wide variety of benefits without having to go through a stage of slightly altered consciousness. This is, in fact, one of the most attractive qualities of using cannabidiol and one that sets the foundations for the future of CBD.
In North America, there’s increased consumer demand for CBD due to the many positive effects users have experienced first hand, let’s see what these are:
Countless studies, including Cannabis, Cannabinoids, and Sleep: a Review of the Literature, attest that, when consumed regularly, CBD has a sort of soothing effect that’s conducive to sleep, decreasing the frequency of arousals during the night.
Because CBD products have been shown to ease social anxiousness, it’s safe to say that it contributes even further to a more restful night’s sleep – another reason which makes us believe that the future of CBD looks sunny and bright.
Relaxing The Muscles
There are two anti-inflammatory components you can often find in CBD oil products that are conducive to muscle relaxation:
- Delta-limonene, which is typically found in citrus products
- Beta-myrcene, which can be found in basil and lemongrass
Following the personal experience of many CBD users related to CBD’s effects on muscle relaxation, there’s more light shining on the impressive potential of CBD.
Quieting The Mind
There have been many questions around the benefits of CBD regarding social anxiousness and other mental symptoms, as well as a variety of speculations around what it can do for users.
Considering how much truth there is around the positive impact it has on quieting the mind, the future of CBD looks promising, and its position in the wellness industry is secure and robust.
Suppose you are selling CBD and have customers dealing with high levels of stress and anxiety. In that case, you can direct them towards any popular forms known on the market, such as edibles, drinks packets, capsules, CBD oil, and topicals.
What Does The Future Hold For CBD?
With a study evaluating the CBD market to reach $20 billion by 2024, we can safely say that the future of CBD is already part of our present.
Another survey conducted by Consumer Reports found that from over 4,000 Americans interrogated, more than a quarter of them had tried CBD, with one out of seven individuals consuming a CBD product daily. Another thing noted was that CBD is widely used by different age groups starting from people in their 20s up to 60 years old or more.
As seen from consumer preferences, we firmly believe that CBD has great potential to help with wellness. More so, when taking into consideration both the myriad of available studies and the CBD users’ reported the first-hand experience.
We also believe that NOW is an excellent time for both large companies and small investors to seek out the possibilities of selling CBD products and reap the benefits of this ever-expanding market.
