The rapidly developing and growing CBD market continues to be fueled by innovations in product development. CBD-based products are already a major player in the world of health and wellness, but it is also making its presence felt in other consumer markets including traditional food and beverage, as well as pet care. Cannabidiol (CBD), in particular, has made major headway as a potent source of relief from everyday symptoms suffered by people worldwide such as anxiety, PTSD, depression, as well as helping people wean off substance addictions and dangerous prescription medication such as opioids. The FDA approved Epidiolex, the very first CBD-derived pharmaceutical that was found to be effective in people suffering from seizures related to rare cases of epilepsy called Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet syndrome. It's not difficult to see why optimism surrounds the CBD space in terms of growth, especially since it is highly associated with the general health and wellness industry, which is currently a $3 trillion dollar space in and of itself. Scientific advancements have allowed CBD to play a role in a variety of different products and its evolution will only continue behind increased research and development. Active cannabis companies in the markets this week include PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTC:POTN), MariMed Inc. (OTC:MRMD), Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:NEPT) (TSX:NEPT), The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX-V:FIRE.V) (OTC:SPWRF), Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC:MJNA).
