Following approvals for medical marijuana, and the decriminalisation and legalisation of the drug in many American states, the sale of cannabis-based supplements is a fast growing business in the USA. There are now as many as 3,000 brands offering products that contain CBD, and this figure is expected to increase in the years to come.
