CBD is Just the Tip of the Cannabinoid Iceberg
Currently, the hemp industry is experiencing an explosion of interest in the cannabinoid of the moment, cannabidiol, or CBD. It is fast becoming the trendiest ingredient across multiple channels from nutraceutical and skin care to animal health and sports supplements. But cannabidiol is just the tip of a very large iceberg of cannabinoids that are about to sweep across the nation and the world. Hemp is a plant that has hundreds of medicinally powerful compounds within it, and each one of these has major implications in the health, wellness and beauty categories worldwide. Although cannabidiol is traditionally the most abundant cannabinoid found in hemp, new varieties of hemp are producing other rarer cannabinoids in higher amounts.
