There is no question that the CBD industry is big business, and the CBD edibles sub-niche is a rapidly growing part of it. One 2019 study, by Green Entrepreneur, states that the cannabidiol edibles market will be worth $4.1 billion per annum by 2022. The sale of CBD chocolates and gummies alone surpassed the billion-dollar mark in 2018.
Several large corporations have entered the space now that the financial potential is apparent. As the name suggests, CBD edibles are types of cannabidiol that you can eat. They have already gained prominence in the marijuana sector as a ‘healthier’ method of ingesting THC. It is a similar story among CBD users. Aside from avoiding the stigma of smoking or vaping, you can consume edibles discreetly as there are no plumes of smoke or vapor lingering behind you.
The range of products is genuinely mind boggling as seemingly everyone is getting in on the act. Apart from CBD gummies and chocolate, there is also honey, syrup, peanut butter, and an assortment of sweet and savory goods.
However, the CBD market is also an unregulated one. The combination of minimal oversight and a potential goldmine has led to many brands starting up to ‘get-rich-quick.’ The result is an industry awash with low-grade products. As a result, finding the best CBD gummies and other edibles isn’t as easy as one might think.
