3 CBD Trends to Be Thankful For in 2020

3 CBD Trends to Be Thankful For in 2020

2020 has been a tough year, but there are 3 CBD trends that you can definitely be thankful for this holiday season.

The pandemic hit this country hard and many of our favorite products have simply disappeared in the midst of economic chaos. Thankfully CBD has persevered.

As Covid-19 spread like wildfire, businesses all over the country were deemed non-essential and forced to shut down. This wasn’t the case in the CBD industry though. The government publicly displayed their recognition of CBD’s importance when they deemed it essential.

When social distancing orders were issued, the CBD industry saw a huge influx of purchases. CBD is something many Americans turned to in their time of need and we should all be thankful that we have such incredible products available to us. There are also some awesome CBD trends that we should all certainly be thankful for..

Delicious Flavors 

There’s a whole bunch to love about CBD. It can be used for specific purposes like pain or sleeplessness, or simply as an enjoyable way to stay on top of general wellness.

Even with so many lovable attributes, one of the things that we all look for in CBD products is flavor. You can find fruity flavors that are sure to make your mouth water, or sweet CBD products that make you feel like you've taken a trip to the candy shop. If sweets are not your cup of tea, you can treat yourself to some savory CBD coffee or even a steamy cup of CBD-infused tea.

With so many brands competing to have the best flavor profiles, companies have started to move away from the more common flavors such as lemon or orange. To make themselves stand out amongst the crowd, CBD companies are focusing more on developing their own unique flavor profiles.

This trend has led to an influx of deliciousness in the world of CBD. Brands are paying attention to people's wants and needs, as well as holes in the market that havent been filled. If they can be the first company to offer a certain flavor, that's all the more reason to do so.

When you're sitting on your family zoom call this thanksgiving, make sure to mention how grateful you are that CBD is available in such a wide variety of delicious flavors.

Creating New CBD Products

The CBD industry is swarming with competition. CBD has become one of the most popular health and wellness products on the planet, and every entrepreneur seems to want a piece. Since the 2018 Farm Bill passed, countless CBD companies have sprung up. Each with their own style, flavor profiles, and line of carefully crafted products.

With so many brands competing for customers, companies have started focusing their energy on developing new and unique CBD products. This competition between brands is hugely beneficial for us CBD enthusiasts.

We don't have to spend any of our resources for brands to research and develop new products. Instead, we just get to enjoy the fruits of their labor in the form of an incredible diverse selection of CBD products to choose from.

This trend of coming out with new and proprietary products is something that every CBD enthusiast should be thankful for this holiday season. CBD companies competing against each other to come up with new products is a trend that benefits every CBD user.

Whether you prefer CBD gummies, Coffee, Chocolate, or anything else that’s more elaborate than CBD oil, you owe that gratitude in part to the trend of creating new and exciting products.

The Growing Acceptance of CBD

We are lucky enough to live in a time where CBD is widely accepted, but that hasn't always been the case. It wasn't until 2018 that the Farm Bill was passed and the CBD industry was able to blossom.

Humans have utilized the hemp plant for thousands of years. The earliest relics of utilized hemp were in the form of textile fabric and found in what was once considered Mesopotamia.

CBD has been appreciated by everyone from the ancient Chinese, to 19th century British royalty. Queen Elizabeth even used hemp when she suffered from period pains such as cramps or irritability.

Unfortunately, hemp was in direct competition with products like steel during the 1930s in the U.S. Scholars suspect that this competition pushed steel manufacturers to encourage the taxation of hemp production. In 1937, the Marihuana Tax Act was passed. This tax act laid the groundwork for the prohibition of hemp.

Nearly a decade after the instatement of hemp prohibition, the government and general public are understanding the distinction between industrial hemp and maijuana. Hemp does not contain a high concentration of THC like marijuana does, nor is it intoxicating in any way.

We should all be thankful that CBD has become widely accepted and is completely legal throughout most of the U.S.
