Few industries are expected to offer growth potential that’s as impressive as the cannabis industry over the next decade. But contained within the pot industry is a niche trend that’s growing considerably faster than the overall marijuana industry: cannabidiol (CBD).
The hottest trend in cannabis: Cannabidiol
As some of you may be aware, cannabidiol is one of the two most popular cannabinoids, with the other being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is predominantly found in the cannabis plant, and it’s the cannabinoid responsible for getting users high. Meanwhile, CBD can be found in the cannabis or hemp plants (very small quantities of THC are also found in hemp plants), with hemp being a considerably easier-to-grow and less costly plant, making it the preferred choice for CBD extraction. CBD provides no psychoactive effect.
