On Wednesday, the Delaware-based analytics firm released a new 209-page-long report looking into the potential economic gains of the cannabidiol industry and found that the increasing awareness of CBD-based products as an alternative to traditional pharmaceutical drugs is propelling the cannabidiol (CBD) market demand.
