CBD Usage Among Contractors Up in 2019
CBD use is growing among home improvement contractors in the United States. The Brightfield Group, a cannabis market research firm, says CBD sales are expected to reach $22 billion by 2022. While some question whether or not it’s safe to use, the Food and Drug Administration has approved Epidiolex as the only drug that contains CBD for use which was designed to reduce seizures associated with two rare forms of epilepsy.
Despite the need for more scientific information about CBD and its long-term effects on the body, CBD products are popping up everywhere.
Best Colorado Contractors caught up with a handful of local home improvement contractors who suggest CBD is a great coping mechanism for the daily stresses and pains associated with trade labor.
Jim Copenhagen, 42, a siding contractor, uses CBD to help cope with the daily aches and pains of his job.
“When pain starts to hit my body, usually mid-day I take my favorite CBD Tincture,” he said. “It kinda washes away the pain.”
NuLeaf Naturals are one of the most talked about CBD companies due to their dedication to developing the best CBD product in the marketplace. It has become a favorite among many.
“I really like that I am able to buy CBD online,” said Copenhagen. “I really hope that the FDA can get moving along with their research and product approval so workers like me don’t have to feel like we’re hiding something,” Copenhagen concluded.
As of now, there is no known timeframe when CBD products will be tested and approved by the FDA.
