According to the Brightfield Group, hemp-derived CBD, tinctures and oils - consumption forms focused on the ease of medicating - are making up nearly half (47%) of the total CBD market. In the marijuana-derived market tinctures and oils comprise just 7.4% of all sales, and sugar candy leads with 28% of the market. Conversely, in consumer surveys conducted by Brightfield, marijuana-derived CBD users did not report a higher preference for sugar candies than hemp users did. In fact, CBD users across the board ranked vape cartridges, tinctures, oils, and topicals as top choices as Brightfield reveals THC-dominant candies sell more.
