An explosion of CBD products seems to decorate the shelves of nearly every kind of business these days, offering products from CBD honey to CBD-infused yoga pants (yes, really). It’s more than obvious that CBD has become the latest health and wellness trend.

When the U.S. Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, it legalized industrial hemp, which helped launch the popularity of CBD, an abbreviation for cannabidiol. This compound, which is derived from industrial hemp, contains less than 0.3{b574a629d83ad7698d9c0ca2d3a10ad895e8e51aa97c347fc42e9508f0e4325d} THC, the psychoactive compound found in hemp’s cousin, marijuana. In South Carolina, marijuana remains an illegal drug, but chemicals like CBD from industrial hemp are legal.

While some of the CBD hype may be just a trend, other aspects of its use are promising, according to users, retailers and researchers. Clinical, peer-reviewed studies exhibit potential medical use for ailments including mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. It also is believed to provide relief for chronic pain, cancer and some neurological disorders such as ADHD. 

“To see an elderly woman who walked into your shop and she couldn’t stand up, she couldn’t walk, her hands were permanently closed, and now she’s mobile and she’s standing up and smiling, walking around with her grandson,” said Travis Postell founder and president of Elevated Brands. “That’s just a feeling that, you know, you just can’t get in any other industry, so I’m extremely proud to be a part of it.”
