I don’t really blame companies for trying to take advantage of fads and new crazes, especially when it comes to something as popular as CBD.
My grandparents were once adamantly against marijuana and everything related to its use.
However, they are both huge advocates of CBD and hemp products, often convincing their friends who still have misconceptions about the plant. They admit that their previous stance was wrong and they’re happy to join the world of happy cannabis users. I saw them having a friendly debate with some of their friends from the local Moose Lodge on a Facebook thread the other day and it was about CBD and whether or not it’s safe for use. I’m proud that my grandparents stood their ground and provided that friend with numerous sources to debunk their claims. In the end they convinced that person to try their CBD lotion and now that person is a CBD believer. It’s amazing how you can convince people just by letting them sample the product. It’s that simple if you want them to change their minds on disliking the cannabinoid and not believing the claims about its medicinal value. However, I can understand why some would have trepidation when they see candy companies jumping on the craze and selling CBD candies and gummies on the side using different brand names. They’re jumping on the craze like all of the other companies who are already making a killing selling CBD candies and gummies in a variety of different venues. There is an obscene amount of money to be made in the CBD and hemp industry alone, not to mention the greater cannabis industry at large.
