Palm Beach, FL – March 28, 2019 – European CEO, a leading subscription-based print and online publication, delivered to executives in 28 countries throughout Europe, has been tracking the growing CBD market in Europe. A recent article of theirs was titled: “High demand: CBD-based products gain popularity in European markets – As legalization continues to bring cannabis into the mainstream, high-end products containing its CBD compound are becoming increasingly popular across Europe.” The article continued: “The consumption of CBD has been increasing at an exponential rate – not just in terms of prevalence, but in its growing variety of forms and uses too. As expected (given recent legislative developments), this trend is swiftly proliferating across North America. But interestingly, it’s also spreading throughout Europe via a fast-rising number of both online and brick-and-mortar retailers. While Europe has not experienced the same level of legalization as North America when it comes to the entire cannabis plant, over the last year or so there has been a growing awareness about the merits of its fascinating component, CBD. Given that it can be sold legally throughout the region and has none of the intoxicating effects of THC, the market is by no means limited to those who consume cannabis recreationally. As reflected over the past year, the versatility of cannabis, and CBD in particular, can reach myriad industries. And as awareness grows further, so too will demand – especially for products that boast physical benefits.” Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include: Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC:MCOA), Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), Hemp Inc. (OTC: HEMP), The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. (TSX: FIRE) (OTC: SPRWF).
Another observed in article was quoted: “I think CBD in wellness products will end up being a bigger business than high-potency THC products that are meant to get people stoned. With high-end wellness and natural trends now firmly underway and mushrooming, CBD is a perfect fit. And as legalization continues across the region and beyond, the enthusiasm for the compound in its various forms is set to amplify, bringing forth new possibilities for luxury markets and willing players. The green rush has well and truly arrived.”
