Marijuana stocks, specifically the CBD industry, has quickly become one of the fastest growing markets of the modern day. With so much happening regarding the legality and the shifting public sentiment surrounding what was once a taboo substance, CBD is now able to reach the foreground of the U.S.

For those who don’t know, CBD or cannabidiol is one of the main cannabinoids or chemical components of the cannabis plant. CBD has been highlighted by many scientific reports as having the potential to treat everything from cancer to insomnia and beyond.

While the research is showing a large amount of positivity surrounding the substance, only a few companies have been working to take advantage of this new and budding market space.

The Farm Bill Changes Everything

The introduction of the Farm Bill this year included a piece of legislation that would effectively allow industrial hemp to be cultivated and sold within the U.S. While this may not seem like a big deal, industrial hemp is a close cousin to the marijuana plant. It can be used for a variety of similar products that its illegal family member can as well.

Industrial hemp can be used to create CBD, which it holds in quite high numbers. This is one of the main reasons so many are excited about the introduction of hemp. Now that it is legal in the U.S., many companies have been working to jump the gun on producing such a valuable and health altering substance.

With marijuana as a whole seeing $9.3 billion in revenue during the 2016 year, a CAGR of 34.6% means that hemp has a long way to go to catch up. This, however, does leave a large amount of opportunity for the world of hemp and cannabis to collide. It also could present opportunities for marijuana stocks.
