The article dives into the growth of CBD, CBD wellness-related products, and CBD users in the U.K.
The reporter points out that CBD is nom-psychoactive (we “non-intoxicating” is more accurate) and is legal to consume in the U.K. as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC (presumably referring to the source plant).
The article reports that growth in the U.K. is driven by Gen-Z consumers, who are twice as likely as the national average to use CBD.
This disposition by Gen-Z consumers to CBD is attributed to the stated fact that 1 in 5 young adults have a mental health disorder.
The wellbeing derived from CBD is attributed to its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system.
