The hemp-based CBD market continues its blazing progress through 2018 as revenues continue to climb and optimism in the industry grows as legalization and mainstream adoption continue to develop. Hemp is taking root in the United States, thanks to the 2014 Farm Bill, which allowed limited production. Hemp-CBD production is booming for not only U.S. demand but globally as well. According to the U.S. Congressional Research Service, hemp imports surged an astounding 1,200% between 2005 and 2015 - from $5.6 million to about $78.2 million. Sophisticated manufacturing, strategic product development and pricing, and vertical integration are keys to continued growth in the Hemp-CBD market as the U.S. market for hemp-derived CBD products is expected to approach $600 million this year, according to cannabis research firm Brightfield Group, and brands are eager to capitalize on the surging popularity of THC's non-psychoactive relative.
