Recent studies indicate the CBD market could reach $20 billion by 2024, and sales will be shifting from dispensaries to the general retail arena.
The new CBD marketplace will be incredibly mainstream, featuring products intended to soothe and relax without the high that THC offers. In that regard, CBD products can be an incredible solution for brides leading up to, and including, the wedding day because CBD can help to soothe and calm you both internally and externally without any intoxicating side effects, allowing you to look and, hopefully, feel your best without the jitters and anxiety that can come with planning and experiencing your Big Day.
Here are some suggested products that include high-quality, effective CBD extracts. From externally applied items, like serums, moisturizers and facial mists, to internally enjoyed products like gummies, tinctures and fizzy beverages, there’s a CBD product for everyone!
