CBD and Cannabis

Cannabis products, including those infused with cannabidiol (CBD), are a new frontier for convenience retailers. Nielsen projects that the U.S. hemp-based CBD market could be a $2.25 billion to $2.75 billion industry in 2020. Legal cannabis sales are projected to grow to $40 billion by 2025. Although many states have legalized its use, cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, and the FDA hasn’t yet approved use of hemp-derived CBD in edible products.
