Everything CBD – Chasing the Inevitable
The era of CBD-based products is upon us. With the Farm Bill now in action, it’s only a matter of time in which CBD will be as mainstream as chocolate bars. The market is already teeming with CBD products such as gummies, muscle rubs, pet treats, shampoos, syrups, and even coffee. Yes, CBD coffee is a real thing, and it could be on the shelves of your favorite store sooner rather than later. National chains like Walgreens and CVS have announced plans to carry CBD based products in some of their stores.
NEW TO CBD?
Don’t worry! Every one of our satisfied customers was once in your shoes. We know that CBD can be a little confusing at first, so we’ve put some information below and a few product suggestions that might help you. After all, we’re in the business of easing anxiety, not increasing it! And of course, please don’t hesitate to email or call if you have any questions. We’ll be with you as you take these first steps toward a healthier life, and every step after.
It may come as a surprise, but you were made for CBD! We all were. All humans (and most animals too) have an endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors throughout our bodies. This system is involved in almost all brain and body functions, from our ability to handle pain, stress and anxiety to our mobility and muscle health. In short, it keeps our bodies in balance. CBD from hemp is a natural supplement that keeps this system, and you, in optimal health!
A Closer Look Inside the Company
With Laura’s guidance and leadership, we now have about a 10% share of the CBD market, but the supply side of the industry isn’t always transparent. Laura deals with plenty of shady people in the industry. She has made it a standard procedure to send any samples she gets from vendors to her lab for testing. Most small samples tend to check out fine, so she orders more— but when she sends the larger orders to the lab for testing, it’s not always the same stuff as the original sample. And, there is no recourse.
At Green Roads, we pride ourselves on only producing quality products, which is why we spend a staggering $30,000 to $40,000 a month testing raw materials for pesticides and metals. We also require certificates of origin from all of our suppliers.
Green Roads has navigated all the uncertainty in the industry to achieve a remarkable level of success. In 2017, Forbes listed us as one of the top 10 CBD brands in the country. We’ve also been featured in several publications including Yahoo, Cosmopolitan, ESPN, NBC, BuzzFeed, and now CBS.
The Era of CBD Based Products Is Upon Us
The era of CBD is here! Although this is a relatively new industry, yearly sales of CBD based products are expected to rise exponentially. However, despite its wild popularity, misconceptions still surround this compound.
Bethany Gomez, a managing director of the Brightfield Group, a market research firm that has been tracking CBD sales, said, “I have never seen an industry grow this quickly, and I’ve never seen an industry with so much headwind.”
Last year, in the U.S. alone, the market hit about $600 million. Gomez forecasts that in as little as five years, it’s likely to be 40 times that, making CBD a $24 billion a year market.
She added, “Over the past year, it’s grown by more than 200%. And, that was with the market being federally illegal until December 20, when the Farm Bill passed.” With the Farm Bill now in action, things are going to be moving quickly.
With industrial hemp-derived CBD declared federally legal, big players are making plans to muscle into this marketplace. Rumor has it that even Coca-Cola is developing a CBD product.
The FDA has already approved one CBD drug called ‘Epidiolex’ that’s now in use to treat seizures associated with certain forms of childhood epilepsy.
Yasmin Hurd, a professor at Mount Sinai’s School of Medicine in New York, stated “The research to date gives us a big promise on which to build.”
Our co-founder, Laura B. Fuentes, is a licensed compound pharmacist who brings the highest standards of self-regulation to her work and our Green Roads team. Laura creates all of the proprietary formulations for our award-winning line of CBD oils, edibles, and terpenes.
