Financialnewsmedia.com News Commentary
Just as the legal cannabis industry has exploded in recent years, so too has a sector that revolves around the plant's non-psychoactive cousin: hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD). Hemp-derived CBD products continue to dominate the cannabis market as less legal restrictions allow for companies to expand new products to previously untapped consumer segments. The demand for hemp-based cannabidiol has skyrocketed, especially since a 2013 CNN report about the success in Colorado of Charlotte's Web, a CBD product that helped a young epileptic girl control her seizures. CBD is expected to become a billion dollar industry itself and could potentially eclipse the entire traditional cannabis market, according to analysts. The Hemp Business Journal projects the industry will generate annual revenues north of $1 billion by 2020. 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), India Globalization Capital Inc. (NYSE:IGC), The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX-V:FIRE) (OTC:SPRWF).
