In times of stress, your body can seem to go on the fritz. Systems malfunction, everything feels inflamed, your skin freaks out and you can’t sleep or digest. Fortunately, your body hosts an in-house service to help you recalibrate all that: your endocannabinoid system (ECS). Yes, your body has a system specially designed to receive cannabinoids!

The most popular cannabinoid right now is, without a doubt, cannabidiol, or CBD. Is there anything more talked about than CBD or CBD oil? Your grandma and her friends at bingo are using it for arthritis. Your best friend has been trying it to help with panic attacks. Your neighbor’s son is using it for epilepsy.

While CBD’s medical claims are still unregulated by the FDA, it is completely legal in every U.S. state (thanks, Farm Bill!), so millions of people are discovering the magic of the hemp plant for the first time. This means there’s an incredible rise in demand for CBD oil, and, as you might expect, an explosion in the number of brands on the market.

So, how do you weed the trustworthy CBD brands from the not-so-great phony brands online? There are a few things you should check for. Make sure the website or label shows the following: U.S.-grown hemp (this isn’t all-encompassing, but it’s a good place to start), tested by a third-party independent lab and THC-free. 

Aside from that, finding the right botanical blend (and flavor) is up to you. Whether you’re into something that tastes like a cookie or want something herbal and soothing like a mint, there are tons of options available. Here are our 20 favorite CBD oils you can buy online right now to start relieving stress.

Milligrams per bottle: 500

If you’re looking for the Ferrari of CBD oil, start with Verma Farms. Based on taste, quality ingredients and reputation, this is the best CBD oil on the market. The company became famous when they launched their CBD Oil Kit, which was instantly praised by Forbes, Venturebeat and Entrepreneur. Their oils are free of pesticides and artificial ingredients, vegan, organically grown and crafted using Hawaiian recipes. If you’re looking for top-of-the-shelf stuff, start with Verma Farms. 

  1. Penguin CBD ($105)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,000

Thanks to quality, safety and innovative flavors, Penguin CBD is one of the best natural wellness supplements you can find in 2020. Using flavor-free MCT oil as the carrier for CO2-extracted, Colorado-grown hemp, this THC-free tincture is both safe and delicious. Personal favorite? The Oreo-inspired “cookies and cream” flavor. If chocolate sandwich cookies aren’t your thing (are you OK?), try mint, strawberry, citrus or natural (plain). You can also adjust the dose of their CBD oil by buying a potency that suits your needs. Each oil comes in 250, 600 and 1,000 milligram servings in a one-ounce dropper bottle.

Milligrams per bottle: 1,000

Basic CBD is exactly what it sounds like: basic. And with a daily wellness supplement, that’s exactly what you want. Basic also covers all the bases: It’s got zero THC, is combined with nourishing MCT oil, is made from non-GMO Colorado-grown hemp and is flavor free. You can access Basic’s COA on their site to see that their CO2 extraction keeps solvents and chemicals out, but CBD medicine in.

  1. Charlotte’s Web ($149)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,500

If you’ve heard about CBD oil, you’ve probably heard of Charlotte’s Web, a brand that’s been around for years (long before the Farm Bill). The Colorado company blends their high-quality hemp with olive oil in their original formula (flavorless), but they have a mint chocolate version as well. 

  1. Juna Nightcap CBD ($98)

Milligrams per bottle: 750

Nightcaps in the olden days usually contained a hefty dose of whiskey. This one from Juna does not, and is actually good for your body. The sleep drops are the perfect mix of chamomile and mint, layered into MCT coconut oil with Vermont-grown, full-spectrum hemp. You’ll be counting sheep before you can say cannabidiol.

  1. Luna Volta Nova ($92)

Milligrams per bottle: 600

Luna Volta sources their hemp from small farms in the U.S. to create their full-spectrum CBD oil, which is carried by MCT oil. But one of the coolest aspects of this brand’s CBD product is actually the box it comes in: It’s not only 100 percent biodegradable, but you can plant the box outside because it’s full of wildflower seeds (curated to help the declining bee population).

  1. Green Gorilla Organic Full Spectrum CBD Oil ($45)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,200

Organic extra virgin olive oil is not just for salads! The base of this full-spectrum blend from Green Gorilla is EVOO, making it great on its own or as a topping for food. Another unique component is the pump-style top that allows you to control the dose with precision.

  1. Infinite CBD ($49)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,000

Using fatty coconut oil (excellent for bioavailability), Infinite CBD delivers their Colorado-grown hemp as a CBD isolate (no THC or other cannabinoids). It’s plain (completely flavorless, with zero added flavors or sugars), simple and effective.

  1. Winged Balance Oil ($60)

Milligrams per bottle: 300

Winged is a brand designed to help women, who statistically struggle with mental health woes (stress and anxiety, specifically) on a larger scale than men. Their peppermint-flavored tincture uses CBD and evening primrose oil to support women’s hormones and skin health, all while helping to alleviate stress.

  1. Floramye Revitalizing CBD Elixir ($75)

Milligrams per bottle: 600

Floramye has two types of CBD oil on offer: Phenom and Bravura, each using their own combination of terpenes and botanicals. Phenom uses roman chamomile and lemon, while Bravura uses ylang-ylang, and both are made with full-spectrum, organic hemp.

  1. Lord Jones Royal Oil ($100)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,000

Lord Jones is all about elegant, elevated simplicity. Their Royal Oil is beautifully packaged, but includes just two (top-tier) ingredients: grapeseed oil and CBD isolate.

  1. +Plus CBD Oil Gold Drops ($109)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,500

+Plus CBD offers three flavors, the most unique being goji berry. The brand uses their CO2-extracted hemp to create a full-spectrum CBD oil, allowing you to benefit from additional terpenes and phytocannabinoids, without any THC.

  1. Mana Artisan Botanics Hemp Oil ($190)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,200

Mana Botanics’ CBD product sounds more like a delicious island dessert than a daily wellness supplement. Their luxurious oil is made from Hawaiian macadamia nuts with ground Hawaiian turmeric, coconut and vanilla bean to help your body and mind relax and unwind.

  1. CBDFX CBD Tincture Oil ($100)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,000

With a flavor that sounds like a delicious happy hour cocktail — lychee lemon kiwi — CBDFX’s potent CBD oil uses full-spectrum hemp extract and MCT oil in their plant-based supplement. Their organically grown hemp uses a CO2 extraction process to guarantee a clean end product.

  1. Joy Organics CBD Oil Tincture ($78)

Milligrams per bottle: 900

Joy Organics is a family-run business, providing phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil with no THC. Choose from four flavors of their third-party laboratory-tested product, including summer lemon, orange bliss, tranquil mint and natural (plain). 

  1. Onyx & Rose Pure Bloom Orange ($99)

Milligrams per bottle: 1,000

Onyx and Rose is one of the only CBD oil brands to include (and name) additional cannabinoids in their tincture. What’s inside? CBG, CBN and CBC. This makes for a broad-spectrum blend in a zesty, citrusy orange flavor, with zero THC. 

  1. Populum Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil ($179)

Milligrams per bottle: 1000

Colorado-sourced hemp with zero THC and an award-winning citrus flavor? You can’t lose. But if you don’t happen to be obsessed with Populum’s CBD oil, they offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

  1. LEEF Organics Thrival ($100)

Milligrams per bottle: 375

LEEF CBD oils are made in San Diego and use a nourishing proprietary blend of aminos, enzymes and fatty acids. They also use a cold-pressed fermentation process, so consider this more of a superfood than a supplement. And, as you may have gathered from the brand’s name, yes, it’s organic.

  1. Buzzn Bliss CBD ($70)

Milligrams per bottle: 500

An earth-centric brand, Buzzn prides itself on making toxin-free CBD products, delivered in completely recyclable paper and packaging made from 50 percent post-consumer waste. Inside you’ll find an orange-flavored oil made from Colorado hemp.

  1. Spruce CBD ($89)

Milligrams per bottle: 750

With 25 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD in every dropper, this peppermint elixir is organic, vegan and gluten-free, and utilizes hemp-seed oil to carry the CBD itself.

I think I can safely speak for all of us when I say that these past few weeks have been terrible. Concerns over my family’s health, finances, and overall well-being have sky-rocketed, and by mid-March I was practically vibrating with stress. The piercing toddler screams that I typically didn’t notice were now grating at my very soul. I needed relief, so I began looking for the best CBD oil for stress. It was going to be a very long quarantine if I didn’t find a way to relax and stop snapping at the family. Prescribed medications were too heavy, making it hard to work and juggle childcare at the same time. “Self care” routines were a joke. Daily alcohol consumption isn’t sustainable nor healthy. My on-going loop of Sigur Rós could only take me so far. Enter CBDistillery™ and their 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture.

I wish I could attach the audio file of me sighing in relief the first time I tried it. After the first serving of their 33mg blend kicked in, I felt the proverbial weight lifted from my shoulders. Physically I felt a lot better, but mentally it was a whole other world. I felt calmer, happier, and was better able to handle the chaos of a full house. 

Support the LA Weekly Community by Purchasing from CBDistillery

After consistent use for two weeks, the real benefits of CBDistillery™ 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture began to show. It seems like almost every day our household – like all others across the world – was hit with more bad news. Family members are ill, my husband lost his job, my work pressure increased. Before I began using CBD oil, each scenario by itself would leave me sleepless – all put together I would have been practically nonfunctional. Yet this week, as the news got even worse, I was okay. Sure I feel stress, but it’s manageable. I have better clarity to accept the things I cannot change. I believe that this CBD oil is what gave me the peace I needed from constant anxiety. 

A month ago I wasn’t sleeping. Now, I am actually feeling refreshed when I wake up. A month ago my jaw popped every time I opened my mouth, as I was clenching it with frustration. Today there is no popping. Physically, I feel less achy. 

I am not alone in my praise of CBDistillery™ 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil as being one of the best CBD oils on the market today. With over 10,000+ 5-star reviews on their site, you can see others like me who are sleeping better, handling life better, and overall just feeling better. 

Like most, I pour over reviews before buying a product. Money is tight and I want to make sure I get what I need. When on the website, I saw a customer review that stuck out to me, “I am a different person since I have been using CBD products. So happy I found CBDistillery™” – this was the push I needed to try it, because I was hoping for the same outcome. 

Support the LA Weekly Community by Purchasing from CBDistillery

CBDistillery™ really delivered. I feel like I am being a better version of myself, and for that I am grateful. This is my solution to finding the best CBD oil for stress

In terms of use, I prefer that this CBD oil tincture is not flavored. It makes it a lot easier to hold under my tongue and swallow. With <0.3% THC, I don’t feel an intoxicating effect. After reviewing their third-party lab testing results, I am firm in my opinion that this is one of the highest quality CBD products on the market.

Yeast, baking powder and spiral hams were big hits in America’s shopping carts last week.

As the country settles in — possibly for the long haul — under stay-at-home orders, baking projects appear to be a common distraction, while panic purchasing of some products seems to be subsiding.

Sales are still up significantly compared to a normal week. And shelf-stable foods, meats, produce and snacks are all flying off shelves at unusual rates.

But for many products, the remarkable sales spikes from early March have started to subside.

It’s all relative, of course. We’re still buying four times as much oat milk as we used to — just not six times as much.

Here’s more of Nielsen’s data on what Americans were buying in the last full week of March.

The Trump administration has promised that the first direct payments to taxpayers will arrive in two weeks. The White House has scheduled a briefing on its coronavirus response for 5 p.m. ET.

The state had 562 coronavirus-related deaths in the past 24 hours. In a bit of “good news,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said 1,452 coronavirus patients have been discharged from hospitals in the past day.

President Trump told reporters on Thursday that he had taken a second coronavirus test, which was negative.

Cases of COVID-19 have appeared throughout the country, but certain areas have been hit harder than others. Find out how many cases and deaths have been reported in each state.

Simply talking could produce tiny particles of mucus and saliva that might carry the coronavirus, experts say. How much these airborne particles matter for the spread of this disease is controversial.

Phil Murphy says he asked for 2,500, but has so far received only 850. And of those, some “were not at the level they needed to be.”

The president and others have criticized 3M, with some officials alleging profiteering during the COVID-19 pandemic. But the company says cutting exports would be a mistake.

“I feel violated,” Jason Hargrove said, in a widely shared video complaining of selfish behavior during the coronavirus pandemic. Nearly two weeks later, the Detroit driver is dead of the disease.

One big commercial testing lab revealed a backlog of at least 115,000 tests, illustrating the scope of the coronavirus testing problems.

A cough on his couch led comedian Dana Jay Bein to write the parody song “Coronavirus Rhapsody.” Then he tweeted it — and the Internet took it from there.

Mike Bloomberg’s presidential bid didn’t last long, but he promised staffers jobs through November. Now some who were abruptly laid off during a pandemic are detailing how they say they were misled.

Federal and state law enforcement are asking questions about Zoom’s security and privacy policies, as millions flock to the videoconferencing service for meetings, classes and social gatherings.

Many Americans are keen to the fact that olive oil is a heart-healthy fat. Just a tablespoon a day can improve heart health, touts the North American Olive Oil Association. However, olive oil is considered by most people solely as cooking oil used primarily in preparing and finishing specific Italian, Mediterranean and Greek dishes.

NAOOA offered that a bit of extra virgin olive oil can also be added to oatmeal and other dishes to boost intake of monounsaturated fats and antioxidants.

Yet, olive oil’s benefits are not only nutritional. Moneycrashers.com says it’s a practical, multipurpose staple like baking soda. For example, olive oil is:

• A skin moisturizer; infuse with fresh or essential oils of lavender, rosemary or mint to achieve a pleasant smell and additional benefits.
• A facial moisturizer; use as-is to fight free radicals that cause aging and skin damage.
• An eco-friendly furniture polish.
• An eco-friendly silver and copper polish.
• A seasoner for cast iron skillets.
• A hair controller; just a few drops rubbed together in hands and then distributed lightly to hair helps to control thick, curly and/or frizzy hair.
• An occasional deep treatment for dry, damaged hair; after treatment is left on for about an hour, hair can be shampooed.
• A natural diaper rash treatment.

Also, olive oil works to quiet the squeak of door hinges, frees stuck zippers and eliminates some types of paint from hands.

Finally, Olive Oil Times reported in October that because CBD, like all cannabinoids, are lipophilic (fat loving), it is more readily absorbed when paired with an oil that has healthy fat properties. Thus, olive oil works as a carrier oil, not just for CBD but for essential oils as well.

For thousands of years, cannabis plants have displayed their multifaceted flexibility in seemingly unrelated applications. They have been employed for religious rituals as well as for the preparation of paper or cordage, and even for apparently contradictory usages such as recreational scopes and medical treatments. Cannabis plants contain hundreds of components, among them, cannabidiol (CBD), a molecule that is being considered for potential applications in medicine as well as in skin care. CBD can make up to 40% of cannabis extracts and can be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient and totally free of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the major psychotropic component found in cannabis.

As of today, scientists in bio-medicine are exploring the effects of CBD on anxiety, cognition and pain, and uncovering their mechanisms of action. The medical interest in CBD originates from the discussions about the medical use of the psychotropic component of marijuana smoke as well as from the marketing opportunities opened by the legalization of its use. No one, though, is quite sure about the possible domain of application, the anticipated efficacy or the multiple modes of action of CBD. It is often the case that an active drug exerts its activity by binding to receptors within cells. Cannabinoid receptors have been identified in cells within the human body. Cannabinoid receptors are able to bind molecules produced in the brain (called endo-cannabinoids) as well as plant cannabinoids (called phyto-cannabinoids) such as CBD and participate in multiple metabolic mechanisms.

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors. The ones found in the brain, and also in the lungs, liver and kidney, are called CB1. The other ones, called CB2, can be found in some cells of the immune system, in cells programmed to become blood cells (hematopoietic cells) and on the endings of peripheral nerves. The cosmetic and skin care interest in CBD is justified by the fact that keratinocytes contain both types of cannabinoid receptors. This does indeed suggest that the skin might be affected when particular molecules bind to these receptors in the keratinocytes, perhaps by modulating wheal and flare in inflammatory reactions or by reducing the pain and discomfort associated with a range of skin conditions. Studies with cultured cells and animal models support this hypothesis.

Mice carrying a specific deletion in CB1 receptors (that is, mice devoid of functional CB1 receptors) develop prolonged inflammatory reactions when exposed to contact hypersensitization. In addition, in vitro cultures of keratinocytes from those mice release larger amounts of inflammatory chemokines, thus showing that functional CB1 receptors participate in the modulation of the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines and reduce the inflammation associated with contact allergy.1

The effects of CBD on human sebaceous gland were studied in culture and it was observed that CBD behaves as a highly effective sebo-static agent. Administration of CBD to cultured human sebocytes and human skin organ cultures inhibit the lipogenic actions of various compounds, including arachidonic acid.2

Anandamide is an endo-cannabinoid that binds to CB1 and CB2. The binding of anandamide to its receptors suppresses the synthesis and the secretion of inflammatory cytokines such as IL-2 and IL-23 by cultured human keratinocytes treated with the large pro-inflammatory polypeptide Interferon-γ.3

Another in vitro effect of cannabidiol is that it increases tyrosinase activity and melanin content in cultured human melanocytes.4 Although experiments with cultured human melanocytes are often misleading when it comes to decreasing the intensity of pigmentation, the observed increase of tyrosinase activity and accumulation of pigment might indicate that CBD does indeed exert an action on pigment production.

This is to say that, among cannabinoids, cannabidiol is perhaps the most interesting compound; furthermore, it lacks the psychoactive properties of THC and is not subjected to heavy legislation. In addition, in contrast with the action of THC, it does not increase the level of β-endorphins in the plasma and in the hypothalamus.

Cannabidiol is presented, sometimes too optimistically, as being anti-inflammatory, analgesic, hydrating, moisturizing, wrinkle-reducing, anti-aging, anti-acne, anti-eczema, anti-psoriasis, and anti-itch. However, as of today, data about its safety and efficacy are still limited. And yet, there are plausible mechanisms for cannabidiol to have positive effects on skin, and there are documented consumer benefits for ointments containing cannabis oil.

CBD does not have the same psychotropic activity as THC and has been reported to relieve the feeling of anxiety experienced by individuals exposed to THC. Peter Grinspoon suggested5 that the results obtained in treating the childhood epilepsy syndromes that do not respond to the usual medications, do provide the best evidence for the medical efficacy of CBD. Indeed, the administration of CBD reduced the number of seizures and in some cases was able to stop them altogether.

CBD is recommended to treat anxiety and may help individuals prone to insomnia with falling asleep and remaining asleep. Animal studies indicate that topical application of CBD helps reduce the pain and modulates the inflammatory responses associated with arthritis. The mechanism of action of cannabidiol taken by the general route to treat inflammatory and neuropathic pain in rats has been recently understood.6

As of today, however, results obtained by administering CBD to human volunteers targeting physiological or psychological endpoints (cortisol levels, alertness, dizziness, confusion, anxiety and psychosis) indicate that the observed effects of CBD were not all statistically significant.7

The results from in vitro studies and from clinical observations have prompted some experimental work to assess the efficacy of topical CBD on human volunteers. A CBD-containing topical ointment was applied twice a day for three months on the skin of 20 patients with atopic dermatitis or psoriasis. Hydration, transepidermal water loss and elasticity were the endpoints of the analysis. In addition, photographs were used to follow the progress of the status of the skin and appropriate questionnaires were used to assess the severity of atopic dermatitis (SCORAD) and psoriasis (PASI). It was observed that topical treatment with a CBD-enriched ointment improvesd the conditions of the skin, the symptoms and also the PASI index score. Neither irritation nor allergic reactions were observed during the treatment.8

In a study aimed at learning about the effect of CBD on sebum production,9 a cannabis seed extract was added (3% final) to an ointment and the ointment by itself was used as placebo control. The placebo and the extract-containing base were applied twice a day for 12 weeks, to the half face of male volunteers so that each volunteer was his own control. It was observed at the end of the study, that the level of sebum in the cheeks treated with base plus 3% cannabis seeds extract was lower than the sebum level in the cheeks treated with the placebo. The results were reported to be statistically significant (p<0.05).

Other studies in dermatology considered the application of combinations of CBD and THC to achieve positive results in skin disorders. Epidermolysis bullosa is a genetic cutaneous disorder characterized by painful blistering. Cannabinoid-based medicines were sublingually administered to three patients. The patients reported improved pain score, reduced pruritus and reduction in overall analgesic drug intake.10

It may also be of interest for the fragrance market that combinations of THC and CBD were used to study the effect on nocturnal sleep and early morning behavior on young adults by spraying on the oral mucosa. It was observed that THC had a sedative effect whereas CBD had alerting properties as it increased wake activity during sleep and counteracted the sedative activity of  THC.11

There is a great potential of utilization of cannabis oil in skin care. As a matter of fact, the topical use of CBD can decrease skin inflammation and skin discomfort, as well as reactions such as pruritus, a form of severe skin itching affecting aged skin, thus offering a possible new approach for anti-aging products. The sebo-static effect of CBD could make it the molecule of choice when trying to optimize anti-acne treatments. And the suggested pro-pigmenting effects might be of interest for consumers who want to protect their skin with sunscreens against ultraviolet radiation, while acquiring the beautiful suntan associated with outdoor activity and vacation time. All this, of course, will need appropriate formulations for the active ingredient to penetrate the epidermis and reach its receptors.

Cannabidiol can enter the body in multiple ways, including by topical applications, as long as it is properly formulated. Cannabidiol’s calculated partition coefficient; i.e., Log Kow, is 6.5. This places it in the same category as glycyrrhetinic acid (Log Kow = 6.9), linolenic acid (Log Kow = 6.4) or palmitic acid (Log Kow = 6.5).

One could therefore surmise that appropriate solvents for cannabidiol could be Finsolv TN (C12 alkyl benzoate, with Log Kow = 6. 75), Lexfeel 7 (Neopentyl glycol diheptanoate with Log Kow = 6.48) or dodecane (Log Kow = 6.88)

Along the same line of thinking, surfactants to prepare optimal emulsions with cannabidiol could be Tween 40, which has a hydrophobic tail with Log Kow = 6.6, or glycerol monostearate (GMS) whose hydrophobic tail has Log Kow = 6.59.

Given the low value of the partition coefficient of the stratum corneum, though, the presence of excipients with Log Kow > 8 seems necessary for cannabidiol to penetrate the horny layer, reach its receptors and achieve the anticipated beneficial effects.

Experimental data point to a great potential and to a diversity of applications of cannabidiol in skin care. Efficacy data are not numerous and only a few of them are robust. As of today, the legislators/regulators have only partially expressed their feelings about extracts from plants containing psychotropic agents.

It can be anticipated that the consumer would fancy the use of natural extracts, but cannabis extracts could be contaminated with THC or other psychotropic cannabinoids. It will, therefore, be necessary to introduce purification steps and extensive analytical work with increased production costs. In addition, botanical extracts are subject to seasonal variability that may affect the final content of the actives that are desired. Therefore, plant cell cultures could represent a reliable system of production and Cannabis sativa cells can be propagated in the laboratory but do not produce cannabidiol and should undergo a genetic engineering process to do so. Unfortunately, the technology to transform cannabis cells to produce cannabidiol only is not yet at hand.12

Is there sufficient scientific knowledge for introducing CBD in the skin care market? Perhaps not yet, and excessive haste may make the project obsolete before it becomes mature. Yet, the progress of research is extremely swift, and excessive prudence may prove fatal to cautious marketers. For the time being, what is needed is the generation of safety and efficacy data in different formulations for different applications, while getting ready to enter the market.

U.S. retail sales of cannabis and CBD products reached $14 billion in 2019, and are on pace to increase 18% a year to $33 billion in 2024, according to data published in “Cannabis and CBD: U.S. Retail Market Trends and Opportunities,” a report by market research firm Packaged Facts.  

Cannabis products can be segmented by delivery format—i.e., the method by which the product’s desired compounds are ingested. The most common delivery format, flower—smoked in the form of buds or pre-rolled cigarettes—accounts for nearly 40% of retail sales.

Another smokable product, vaporizer cartridges with concentrated THC or CBD compounds, comprises the second largest share. However, this share is declining as concerns about vaping-related lung illnesses rise and as states increasingly restrict sales of both nicotine- and cannabis-infused vaping products.

The fastest annual gains are projected for those delivery formats—namely edibles and topicals—that stand to benefit the most from the easing of federal restrictions on hemp and cannabis. Major retailers—including foodservice establishments in certain states—are increasingly offering CBD-infused food, beverages, cosmetics and toiletries that appeal to consumers because these products have the therapeutic benefits of CBD without the psychological effects of THC.

Other major delivery formats include tinctures, pills and capsules, and ingestible oils, which are used for both marijuana- and hemp-based products. Ingestible oils made from hemp seed oil (which does not include CBD or THC) have been available for decades and are used by health-conscious consumers for their purported nutritional benefits.

CBD skin care market sales are projected to reach $959 million by 2024, according to cannabis market intelligence and strategic consultancy firm Prohibition Partners in its report, “The Impact Series: Disrupting Beauty.”

The report explains that cannabis, with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, is disrupting the traditional beauty market and supply chain as consumer demand skyrockets for innovative natural cosmetics products. Key findings of the report include:

  • Smaller indie brands have driven recent developments in the CBD beauty market, as multinational companies remain wary of CBD’s complicated legal status. 
  • The global CBD skin care market is projected to reach $959 million by 2024.
  • Select brands are exploiting the interest surrounding cannabis-derived CBD oils to sell beauty products containing low-CBD hemp seed oil, in a practice known as “weed washing.” 
  • Continued consumer education will be vital to ensuring the longevity of the CBD beauty market.

“Cannabis and CBD are rapidly being integrated into a wide spectrum of mainstream consumer products, being used in everything from pet food to skin care,” noted Prohibition Partners Managing Director Stephen Murphy. “Thus far, the disruption we’ve seen in the beauty industry is nothing short of remarkable, attracting attention from high-street retailers, global brands, and indie entrepreneurs. Consumers are looking for new and exciting products derived from natural and sustainable sources and cannabis continues to fit this mold, driving product demand through the roof.”

He added: “There are constant questions on the longevity of this trend but with the ability to act as a natural anti-inflammatory agent and an antioxidant, cannabis is becoming one of the most disruptive forces in the beauty and personal care industry in the last two decades.”

ConsumerLab.com’s 2020 Trends and Preferences survey of 9,782 dietary supplement users found that 14.5% of respondents (1,273 total) purchased CBD in 2019. The survey asked those participants the reasons for their CBD use, and whether they believed that CBD worked for those intended purposes. (Participants were able to list more than one use in their responses.)

While companies claim a plethora of health benefits of CBD supplementation, CBD trends mostly followed broader themes related to consumer health and wellness demands in the supplement industry overall.

Pain reduction topped the charts compared to any other reason for use, with 67.3% of respondents indicating this benefit. The magnitude of pain reduction usage was among older individuals.

Another 45.4% of respondents indicated that they used CBD for sleep; 37.5% of respondents said they use CBD to reduce anxiety, and the magnitude of anxiety reduction usage was seen in younger users. Additionally, 20.3% of users indicated using CBD to reduce depression/improve mood; 9% gave CBD to their pet; 8.6% used it as part of a cancer treatment; 2% used CBD for colds or flu; and 0.8% used CBD to lessen symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Only about half (53.3%) of the CBD users ConsumerLab.com surveyed thought that CBD worked for them; 11.7% of users said no, and 35% said that they were unsure. Of those who gave CBD to their pets, 63.5% believed that it worked. Those who used it for this purpose were the most likely to believe it worked, compared to those who ingested it themselves for any other purpose.

Low-concentrate CBD gummies have been estimated to be the largest segment of product types, accounting for close to 90% of market share, but demand for high concentration CBD gummies is largely rising from the healthcare sector. The global CBD gummies market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28% from 2019 to 2029, according to a report from Fact.MR. Rising consumer interest in edible cannabis options is a major factor that is supporting market growth.

The global industry is largely fragmented with a number of small and medium scale enterprises operating in the industry. Most of these companies are located within Canada, and a number of small-scale businesses are also opening up in the U.S. Governments are pushing to legalize marijuana in a bid to shut down the black market and bolster revenue from legal sales. Key takeaways from the study include:

  • In terms of the fast-growing European CBD gummies market, the U.K. is projected to display the fastest rate of growth, owing to the recent legalization of cannabis for recreational and medical use. Legalization has also resulted in North America becoming the largest regional market for CBD gummies.
  • The segment of high-concentration CBD gummies products is expected to witness a higher rate of growth during the forecast period owing to applications in ailments such as schizophrenia, glaucoma and sleep disorders among others. Low-concentration CBD gummies are projected to remain the largest segment, with demand from newcomers.
  • Longer lasting effects of CBD gummies in comparison with smoking cannabis is another key factor promoting demand, and generating a perception of health benefits with the product.
  • Consumers are more inclined to visit offline channels of distribution such as dispensaries, smoke shops, pharmacies, and health stores, owing to the perception of purchasing authentic and good quality products. However, convenience factors are driving the use of online alternatives, especially among regular consumers.

“It is expected that within a few years, more states in the U.S. are likely to legalize the consumption of CBD either for medicinal or recreational purposes. Such trends of legalization are likely to boost the demand for CBD in the country,” the report said.

There is growing demand for alternatives to smoking cannabis. Rising consumer interest in cannabis-based edibles and other concentrated CBD products is supporting market growth, as consumers continue to seek alternatives to smoking, which is a key factor in driving demand for gummies. Primarily driven by Millennials, CBD gummies are incrementally expected to replace other consumable variants including confectioneries, chocolates, and cookies, among others.

“In the CBD space, we see an abundance of misinformation and a dearth of quality standards testing,” said Rob Fried, ChromaDex CEO and member of the Board of Directors of the Council for Responsible Nutrition. “ChromaDex has been a leader in standards testing for over 20 years, and we look forward to helping bring some scientific integrity to those interested in CBD.”

Reference standards are used as benchmarks or markers to confirm the identity and potency of products. ChromaDex provides phytochemical reference standards, botanical reference materials, and research grade materials for the natural products industry with over 1,750 phytochemicals and 400 botanical reference materials in its catalog.

The company added two cannabinoid reference standards, cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabidivarin (CBD-V), derived from hemp for laboratory use in the identification and qualification of hemp and CBD ingredients or products.

“We support the establishment of a safe limit of CBD for consumers,” noted ChromaDex Co-Founder & Executive Chairman Frank Jaksch. “Our tools will help researchers and companies develop quality products that match label claims.”

Delbia Do Company, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fragrances and flavors, as well as a USDA Organic Certified Producer and Handler, will be the exclusive distributor of Kentucky BioScience International (KBio) hemp cannabidiol (CBD) products for use in personal care and cosmetics.

The company has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with KBio, a domestic producer of CBD products with headquarters and processing plant in Bowling Green, KY, as well as farming networks in Kentucky and Virginia. KBio produces pure CBD ingredients deliverable in winterized crude, full spectrum distillate and isolate powder.

“We’re excited about working with Delbia Do Company to provide the purest CBD ingredients for use in personal care and cosmetics,” said KBio CEO Robert Huttick. “Together, our companies are focused on providing pharmaceutical grade, all-natural ingredients to millions of sophisticated consumers.”

Specialty cosmetic and personal care ingredient company, Sytheon, recently launched Asyntra CBD-Alt, a patent-pending product that acts synergistically with CBD and hemp oil found in cosmetic products, and is known to amplify its attributes. CBD-Alt can also be used alone. The product is designed to reduce the loss of anandamide, a fatty acid neurotransmitter that activates certain receptors of the endocannabinoid system which are present in skin.

By inhibiting the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) enzyme, which degrades anandamide, researchers believe that it is possible to elevate anandamide levels for therapeutic use. In preliminary research, anandamide plays a role in mood enhancement. It is found in chocolate and other organic matter.

Like many other cannabinoids, anandamide is believed to have an “entourage effect” when used simultaneously with CBD oil. “The innovations that enable progress also include new methods of understanding,” Sytheon said in a statement. “Sometimes the biggest impact comes from understanding the mechanism and coming up with an improved system, which allows us to reach our target faster.”

Centerchem has introduced CBD-TEX 5, a water-based encapsulated micro-dispersion of 5% CBD that is water dispersible. The ingredient allows CBD to become part of any aqueous formulation, creating a milk- or serum-like consistency the company said is easy to handle.

The hemp seed oil is rich in proteins, lecithin, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). The hemp is also GMO-free and certified organic.

North Carolina-based ingredient, flavor, and nutrient premix specialist Prinova has partnered with CBD manufacturer Open Book Extracts. The deal will allow the companies to launch HydroBond CBD, a line of water-soluble CBD ingredients supplied by Open Book Extracts, which will be developed and processed in-house at Prinova. The two companies will collaborate in future product development and formulation of solutions for consumer products containing CBD, and use HydroBond CBD in both liquid solution and ready-to-mix powder applications.

Prinova cited specific benefits that HydroBond CBD offers compared to traditional ingredient forms, including effective blending, a neutral taste, and traceable, “clean-label” components. The patent-pending formula utilizes açacia fiber as its sole carrier.

Anail Mitra and Jay Basu, the co-founders of 13-year-old ingredient supplier From Nature With Love, announced a new CBD venture, Botanical Origins (Oxford, CT), which will feature both broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate for use in personal care products with a variety of cosmetic and topical formulations. Products are THC-free, and they are grown, produced, and lab-tested in the U.S. The company will also offer custom blending services, allowing a client to choose a premium quality blending oil into which the CBD will be blended up to a maximum of 25% concentration. The company offers certified organic vegetable oils, some of which have nutritional benefits, as well as conventional vegetable oils.

Hoffmann, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a range of industries and applications, is introducing a line of tinplate cans comprised of 100% recycled steel this spring. Made possible by collecting separated consumer packaging steel from standard household recycling, the company’s RecyCan portfolio essentially closes the loop on sustainability through packaging that is not only completely recycled but also perpetually recyclable.

All tinplate cans contain some recycled steel. At the inception of the RecyCan process, typical household steel, such as used cans, closures and crown corks are collected for recycling. After steel elements are separated from aluminum and plastic packaging via magnet, they are shredded and detinned before being pressed into cubes. They are then melted down to raw steel and cast into slabs. The slabs are hot-rolled, cold-rolled and tin-plated to produce packaging steel, which can be printed and formed into fresh new tinplate packaging cans.

Ideal as packaging for a variety of premium organic and specialty products, Hoffmann’s RecyCan tins are available as three-piece, two-piece or deep-draw cans that protect against light, air/oxygen, and moisture. In addition to being fully recycled and recyclable, the circular packaging solutions offer a host of other eco-friendly benefits, including the savings of raw materials.

“In Europe, North America and other major markets, metal tins are synonymous with sustainability as they are recycled in well-established recycling streams,” said Mark Aegler, CEO of Hoffmann Neopac AG. “The RecyCan line of products takes eco-consciousness to the next level by achieving full circularity—completely recycled products that can continue to be recycled. And of course, these environmental benefits are achieved without sacrificing product protection or branding aesthetics.” 

Study explores the skin penetration rate of CBD in Neossance Squalane compared to jojoba oil, sunflower oil, MCTs, and hemp seed oil.

Amyris, a company specializing in health and wellness, beauty, flavors and fragrances, presented clinical results suggesting that its natural sugarcane squalene product, Neossance squalane, is a superior carrier of CBD versus other oils for topical applications.

According to new data, Amyris sugarcane squalene improves the efficacy of CBD by 10 to 40 times its counterpart carriers.

The study, conducted by the Cosmos Technical Center, explored the skin penetration rate of CBD in Neossance squalane versus jojoba oil, sunflower oil, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), and hemp seed oil into human skin.

According to the study, other oils tend to rest on the surface of the skin along with some of the CBD being carried, or clog skin pores without delivering a sufficient quantity of CBD to the epidermis of the skin, where cannabinoid receptors are. Additionally, Neossance squalane also provides moisturizing, brightening and wrinkle reduction benefits.

The cannabinoid industry has long been concerned about the quality and compliance of delivery applications for CBD topicals.

Amyris is developing CBD through fermentation technology and believes it will be the first company to provide pure and efficacious CBD from this technology at commercial scale. The ability to provide both high quality CBD, and what the study suggested is the best performing carrier, will provide consumers with greater choice and product effectiveness, Amyris said.

Amyris has filed a patent application seeking to give it proprietary rights over the use of squalene to deliver cannabinoids including CBD topically.

“We are very pleased with the breakthrough results from our clinical studies,” Apprinova President Caroline Hadfield said. “This is a great example of how clean ingredients made from our science platform and naturally sourced from sugarcane combined with our scientific approach to formulations can lead to disruption in key markets. We are very excited to deliver what consumers are seeking and support the brands that are committed to delivering high efficacy and sustainability at an accessible value for consumers.”

Sixty-two percent of all cannabis users reported they take it to relax, while 54% use it to relieve stress or anxiety.

Approximately six in 10 Canadians are either current cannabis users, or are interested in trying it, according to a consumer survey from Mintel; 27% of all Canadians surveyed reported that they used cannabis within the first six months of its legalization, and 32% of all non-users of cannabis reported that they were open to trying it.

Edibles garnered the most intrigue from non-users entertaining the prospect of trying cannabis. Forty eight percent of these potential users said they were most intrigued by edibles, with percentages consistent across three age brackets. Overall, 66% of non-users said they were open to trying ingestible (edible or drinkable) cannabis. 

Mintel senior research analyst Scott Stewart said that the rising tide of cannabis could carry some other boats especially well.

“After just one year, the effects of this industry are far reaching,” Stewart said, “from food and drink to insurance and tourism and more—and additional markets will begin to experience the ripple effects of the legalization of cannabis this year.”

Nearly half of Canadian cannabis consumers use it for recreational purposes. Still, a greater percentage of users reported that their consumption had to do with health and wellness purposes; 62% of all cannabis users reported that they use it to relax, while 54% use it to relieve stress or anxiety. Meanwhile, 42% attributed their use to improved sleep, and 39% said they use it to improve their mood.

That health and wellness appeal applies to open non-users as well, as 42% of non-users would consider using cannabis to relieve pain, and 25% would consider it for the sleep benefits.

Lack of education was a prominent reason why open non-users said they were hesitating to try cannabis. Over a third of non-users listed the smell and the smoke as barriers, while 28% listed health concerns as a barrier. Only 41% of open non-users reported feeling knowledgeable about how to consume cannabis.

“In addition to edibles and drinkables that do not involve smell or smoke, two of the main complaints cannabis non-users have about the product, devices like vaporizers or vape pens, which create a vapor instead of smoke, serve to minimize these unwanted byproducts,” Stewart said. “Our research shows that many Canadians view cannabis as a very complex and intimidating product and the lack of understanding leads many to avoid it entirely.”

Mintel reported that video game brands, food companies, and the tourism industry can all benefit from legalized cannabis, especially with the right marketing.

One quarter of cannabis users surveyed consume it while playing video games, and 38% of those user-gamers do so to enhance their gaming experience. Not only are 36% of cannabis users interested in cannabis-themed vacations, but 44% of travelers want to try something they’ve never done before, and 27% want to leave their comfort zone while traveling.

Additionally, food companies might be able to capitalize on the fact that 83% of cannabis users report bigger appetites while using.
