CBD is being added to products across the retail spectrum from food to make-up. According to claims by the Centre for Medical Cannabis, six million people in the UK have tried CBD, and this year the industry has seen a particular acceleration in CBD product use, as lockdown has resulted in many suffering from stress and anxiety.
Whilst the number of people using CBD has grown at a massive rate – 1.3 million Brits now use CBD regularly – many consumers remain wary of the product, unclear as to what it is, how it works and whether it is safe.
