CBD stands for cannabidiol, an ingredient made from hemp plant extract – and public interest is growing fast. It’s estimated that the number of British consumers using CBD products has quadrupled over a two-year period to half a million (Cannabis Trades Association). Gummy sweets, gin, honey sticks, hummus, chocolate spread and ice cream are just a few CBD-infused foods we’ve spotted.
