And it’s just getting started.
The numbers are absolutely staggering.
Hemp farmers were licensed to increase hemp fields by 455% last year.
Despite the four-fold increase, CNBC still said, “US farmers struggle to keep up with demand for industrial hemp.”
The reason is because consumers can’t get enough of one of the most valuable hemp extracts.
And investors are taking notice.
Cannabidiol, often called just “CBD,” is setting sales record across the country.
CBD is derived from hemp which was legalized in the “Farm Bill.”
As a result, hemp demand is soaring and CBD stocks are becoming some of the fastest rising stocks in the market.
In fact, one of our “Top 3 Hemp Stocks” featured below has already DOUBLED in just two weeks.
But if you look at the future of hemp and CBD, you’ll see there’s a lot more to come.
And investors getting in now could reap massive rewards in the weeks and months ahead.
CBD’s Rise From Worst To First And Beyond
CBD is officially classified as an herbal supplement.
As you probably know, supplements are a big and growing industry.
Altogether vitamins, minerals, protein shakes and all the rest have grown into a $37 BILLION a year industry in the U.S.
And the entire industry is growing at 8% a year.
That’s more than $2 BILLION a year in new sales each and every year.
Here’s the key part though.
A single hot supplement can soar from nothing to billions of dollars of sales in virtually no time.
For example, a couple years ago I first heard about “fish oil.”
Seemed a bit crazy, but could certainly have some health benefits.
I wasn’t alone in that thinking because today fish oil sales are more than $4 BILLION a year.
That’s how fast things can grow in the supplement business.
And that’s where hemp and CBD come into all this.
Today, all signs point to CBD is joining (and eventually surpassing) many other these other top-selling supplements.
Turmeric has been the number one selling herbal dietary supplement for five years running.
That was until CBD came on the scene.
Three years ago CBD was the #12 selling herbal supplement.
Two years of 300% annual growth later and CBD is #1.
At this rate, CBD will be the #1 selling supplement (not just the #1 herbal supplement) in no time.
How To Invest In CBD Stocks
This begs the question: where do investors look for opportunities in CBD stocks? Here are three names for investors to watch in this soaring market.
Top CBD Stock #1:
CV Sciences Inc (CVSI)
While many companies are currently dabbling in CBD products and marketing, CV Sciences (US:CVSI) is all about “CBD R&D, formulation and marketing”.
With nearly a decade of experience in bringing CBD products to market, CV Sciences now offers a full-line of hemp-derived CBD-based dietary supplements, targeting numerous areas of health improvement.
Recently, the company obtained USPTO approval for its CBD-based treatment for smokeless tobacco addiction. CV Sciences is targeting three “lanes” for product development: conventional foods, dietary supplements and prescription drugs. Its products are already distributed in over 5,000 U.S. retail outlets.
After a strong run for the stock in 2019, CV Sciences has fallen off sharply, dipping to a low of under $0.30 during the worst of the recent market sell-off.
But it immediately bounced back and more than doubled in just two weeks after the market hit bottom.
Top CBD Stock #2
GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH)
GW Pharma (US:GWPH) is the a major pharmaceutical company and it betting its future on naturally occurring cannabinoids like CBD.
Its lead drug, Epidiolex, is a licensed and approved CBD-based drug for the treatment of epilepsy. That also means GW Pharma is the world’s largest CBD company.
The global market for epilepsy therapeutics alone is expected to reach USD$9.5 billion by 2023, rising at an 8.20% CAGR from 2018 through 2023.
Epidiolex was recently descheduled by the U.S. DEA as a “controlled substance” meaning it can now be freely prescribed and distributed in the United States. The company has also applied for a “Type II Variation Application” to begin to use Epidiolex as a treatment for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC).
GW Pharma is already building a sales pipeline for its next pharmaceutical product, Nabiximols (sold as Sativex® outside the U.S.). Available in nearly 30 nations outside the U.S., this is a CBD/THC formulation for the treatment of muscle spasticity for Multiple Sclerosis sufferers.
Top CBD Stock #3:
Canafarma Corporation (CSE:CNFA)
For investors looking for something new in the CBD marketplace, there is Canafarma Corporation (CSE:CNFA).
The company only began public trading on the CSE in March 2020. Canafarma is also a specialist in hemp-derived CBD.
The company offers investors seed-to-sale vertical integration. That starts with Canafarma’s 100-acre hemp farm in New York state, devoted to cost-effective outdoor cultivation. Canafarma’s hemp cultivation operation boast both higher per acre yields (2,320 lbs per acre) than the industry average as well as above-average CBD potency (>14%) in its hemp.
However, while Canafarma has built its own internal supply chain for efficiency, the company’s real focus is on the branded hemp-derived CBD products it produces at the end of this pipeline.
That starts with Yooforic™, Canafarma’s flagship product line. Certified as organic, Yooforic™ is a hemp oil-infused chewing gum. It contains a “full spectrum” hemp oil with patent-pending technology to maximize bioavailability.
Yooforic™ is available as a pure hemp oil product. In addition to a wide range of vitamins and nutrients, Yooforic™ provides consumers with the full spectrum of Omega fatty acids. It is also produced in a topical cream formulation.

This allows them to get their product directly into consumers hands at a low risk and low cost to the company. By utilizing this mix it increases brand presence and sales at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing. This strategy has already resulted in sales of over $4M in the first 6 months.
For investors looking for focused exposure to the high-growth opportunities in the CBD market, the companies above are three names in the CBD space that are poised to outperform.
