Cannabis legalization is growing worldwide, as more countries change their regulations, and companies, growers and retailers around the world try to make their mark in this “green rush” era. Hemp, the source for CBD (which is the non psychoactive compound) has lots of proven benefits, and is being added to countless retail products – from food to cosmetics.
