Cannabidiol (CBD) Market Expected to Reach USD 938.9 Million by 2027

The surge of the global CBD market is due to a variety of factors, and it is currently projected to grow by about 30% each year. Currently, North America holds the majority of the stake in the market, followed by Europe. Another key element of the CBD market is the prevalence of online retailers, like Direct CBD Online. It’s the new norm for many industries that retail space has become less practical or simply not needed due to cost as well as pandemic-related restrictions. As discussed in the following article, the pandemic may also motivate more individuals to try CBD as a way of improving overall wellness or relieving anxiety.
