Last January, the National Institute for Cannabis Investors told you 2019 would be the "Year of CBD." And man, did it deliver.
Pharmacies across the nation, like CVS and Walgreens, were racing to sell various CBD products, which really got the ball rolling for other retail outlets. And as a sign that CBD is ready for the mainstream, a number of professional athletes began signing on as spokespeople for various CBD companies.
The best part of all these developments is that 2019 was just the start for CBD, which is quickly becoming the most profitable niche of the cannabis industry. CBD sales are projected to surpass $20 billion by 2024.
