Global Demand for CBD Gummies Could Create a $6.94 Billion Opportunity

January 14, 2021 -

Over the next five years, the global CBD gummies market could be worth up to $6.94 billion, according to Grand View Research. Helping to drive a good deal of that growth, they note, is the growing trend of cannabis legalization around the world. In the U.S. for example, a Biden Administration coupled with a Democrat-led Congress could increase the likelihood of legalization. In addition, “Considering that the market could see favorable U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidance or legislation from Congress approving CB in ingestible products next year, Nielsen expects that by 2025, the market for hemp-derived CBD products will generate $6.9 billion, – a threefold increase over five years.”

Coupled with rapidly changing consumer attitudes and sizable consumer demand, even large retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Vitamin Shoppe, Kroger, Barney’s DSW, Sephora, CVS, American Eagle, and Walgreen’s have started to carry CBD products. With global demand growing, some of the top CBD companies to keep an eye on include Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS)(OTCQX: PLPRF), Canopy Growth Corporation (NASDAQ:CGC)(TSX:WEED), Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY), Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (TSX:CWEB)(OTC:CWBHF), and cbdMD Inc. (NYSE:YCBD).
