The CBD industry is growing rapidly in 2019 and with the upcoming new year, CBD is expected to interact with a variety of products, as research continues.
CBD or cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp plant and it possesses various properties that the human body can benefit from. The ongoing research regarding CBD and its health benefits is extremely promising.
With that said, as of today, the use of CBD has spread through the health, wellness, beauty, beverage and food industries. The substance is being used in various dosages depending on the specific purpose.
Although research recognized the plus points of this substance a while ago, regulations were coming in the way of CBD being a commonly used product, legally. In the last decade, adequate research on the topic led many governments, including the US government, to legalize the use of the substance with some specific restrictions. For example, some CBD products are infused with THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, and legally in the United States, these products cannot have more than 0.3% THC.
The market-size of the CBD industry is growing fast with the current demand. To get a full scope of CBD and its popular uses, below is a list of five CBD industry trends for the year 2020 that you should know about today.
CBD infused Coffee
There’s CBD in everything these days, but CBD infused coffee is on the top of the chain. According to CBD Kyro, you have to figure out your ideal dosage by starting small and then increase your dosage when it comes to infusing CBD in coffee.
It is safe to say that coffee is a part of the daily routine for most humans. Whether it is your morning coffee, or you need a mid-day break, coffee is an essential part of any worker’s life.
Restaurants and Cafés have started selling CBD infused coffee in most major cities after understanding the demand and realizing that people are raving about its benefits.
So what are the benefits of adding CBD to coffee? The truth is CBD makes caffeine consumption even better. Caffeine is strong and it does have some negative effects. Caffeinated beverages can cause nervousness or stomach aches.

According to Healthcare Weekly Mag, the trend has begun for health-focused restaurants, cafés, and spas to offer CBD infused coffee at a small added cost.

According to Daily CBD Mag, the industry is making huge strides dealing with conditions we never thought could be improved, like autism. CBD also helps patients with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), which is also a neurological mental health disorder like autism.
Regarding autism, CBD helps by reducing neurobiological inflammation and acts as a relaxant. Similarly, in the case of ADHD, CBD helps reduce the impact of symptoms like stress and anxiety.
