CBD beauty industry: How Big is the Potential Market Really
Palm Beach, FL – May 1, 2019 – This year, consumers will be seeing more beauty products infused with cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil. Following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, more companies are now free to develop products with the cannabidiol (CBD) as an ingredient. CBD is non-psychoactive which means that it does not get people high but still contains the natural health properties which hemp or marijuana plants are known for. CBD products, like tinctures and oils, used to be more popular as relief for chronic pains, inflammation, insomnia, and for promoting relaxation. To be clear, this category is separate from what people know as medical marijuana, which could only be purchased with a doctor’s prescription. Now, there is another emerging and rapidly growing category within the whole marijuana industry: CBD beauty. Under this category are cosmetic products, ranging from make-up to lipsticks, perfume, facial cream, moisturizers, even body baths, and shampoos. More and more investors are keeping watch of this segment, especially as it takes aim at both the multi-billion traditional beauty and cannabis industries. Active companies in the markets this week include The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF), The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (TSX-V: OGI) (OTC: OGRMF), Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (TSX: NEPT) (NASDAQ: NEPT), High Tide Inc. (CSE: HITI) (OTC:HITIF).
The massive potential of the CBD beauty market is enormous, given the possibility that many products could be sold over the counter and without the need for a prescription. This means many consumers could gain access to them easily. From 2018 until the beginning of this year, big names in the beauty retail have been quick to see this market potential and have started their ventures into the emerging space. CBD beauty products have become all the rage now that Wall Street analysts said it could be an entirely separate category from both recreational and medical marijuana. Big names in the financial sector, have, in fact, started covering CBD beauty-related stocks.
