cbdMD Celebrates National CBD Day as Official Founder

cbdMD, Inc., a nationally recognized consumer cannabidiol (CBD) brand (NYSE American: YCBD), celebrates the second annual National CBD Day. This day is observed on August 8th and was founded by cbdMD in 2018.

CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant. The properties of the plant have been used for centuries among ancient civilizations. In modern day, consumers use CBD for a wide range of wellness applications. Research is ongoing, but there have been many promising studies and testimonies from people around the world, making CBD one of the most sought after natural compounds.

“It’s amazing to see what can happen in a year,” said Caryn Dunayer, President of cbdMD. “Since founding this day in 2018, the increase in consumer awareness and overall reception to CBD has been incredible. In such an explosive and dynamic industry, our mission is simple—education.”

Interest in CBD has surged over recent years; so much so that leading cannabis industry analyst, The Brightfield Group, expects the market could hit nearly $24 billion by 2022 after being valued at $620 million in the United States in 2018. Professional sports leagues, like the BIG3 and Bellator MMA, allow their athletes to use CBD products, specifically cbdMD, for recovery and overall wellness. Nursing homes, traditional medical practitioners, and many non-profit organizations have also embraced CBD.

cbdMD encourages everyone to participate in National CBD Day by researching which CBD products are right for you along with which companies offer full transparency.

National CBD Day, in conjunction with National Hemp Day (February 4th), was created to bring awareness to the benefits hemp-derived CBD brings to a multitude of people each year.
