NEW YORK, July 24, 2017
-- According to a repot by the Hemp Business Journal and Vote Hemp, the total retail value of hemp products sold in the U.S. in 2016 was $688 million. Items such as shelled seed, protein powder, soaps and lotions have continued to increase in sales. The successful hemp cultivation pilot programs in numerous states have helped popularity of these legal cannabis products. "Hemp Business Journal estimates the hemp industry will grow to $1.8 billion in sales by 2020, led by hemp food, body care, and CBD-based products. The data demonstrates the hemp industry is growing quickly at 22% five year CAGR and being led by food and body care products, with Hemp CBD products showing a 53% AGR," said Sean Murphy, the Founder and Publisher of the Journal.

Matt Karnes of Greenwave Advisors, stated according to a Forbes report, "In terms of the CBD market size, I estimate an almost $3 billion market by 2021. Right now, there are 15 states that allow CBD only - this is in addition to the 28 states plus DC that have legalized medical marijuana." The report indicates that the CBD market has already been targeted by industry insiders. According to Headset Research data, in Washington state alone there are over 800 CBD products in the marketplace.
ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) just announced this morning that, "its wholly-owned foreign enterprise, CBD Biotechnology Co. Ltd., has officially filed a record of its first line of non-industrial hemp-infused skin care products with the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA). The new 'CBD Magic Hemp Series' skin care line is expected to launch between late August and early September 2017, positioning CBD Biotechnology as a first-mover in an untapped segment of China's skin care industry."
Recognizing the untapped market potential, CBD Biotechnology is developing and manufacturing what it believes to be the first line of non-industrial hemp-infused skin care products in China in hopes of educating the Chinese population on the potential benefits of CBD for skin care. "I am very pleased to announce the upcoming launch of CBD Biotechnology's non-industrial hemp-infused skin care line," says Summer Yun, CEO of CBD Biotechnology Co., Ltd. "As one of the first skin care products containing CBD extract marketed in China, CBD Magic Hemp Series expects to capture 100% of China's market share in this novel skin care products category. Although a catalogue published by the CFDA, indicates that cannabis sativa leaf extract can legally be added to skin care products, it appears that Chinese skin care manufacturers have not yet entered this market, enabling CBD Biotechnology's skin care products to proudly take the lead with its innovative product line."
The 'CBD Magic Hemp Series' will include: - The CBD Peptide Collagen Solution - intended to moisturize and firm the skin, while smoothing fine lines, and preventing premature aging; - The CBD Perfecting Shield Primer - intended to even skin tone, while covering fine lines and minimizing the look of pores; and - The CBD Brightening and Refreshing Moisturizer - intended to balance the skin's moisture, while forming a protective, moisturizing layer.
"Consumption of skin care products per capita in China has increased from 169 Chinese Yuan Renminbi ("CNY") to 352CNY during the last five years," says Yun. "China has the world's second largest consumer market for skin care products, with its current market size already exceeding 300 billion CNY. The CARG (compound annual growth rate) of the skin care products market in China is 9.1%, more than double the global average of 4.1%. CBD Biotechnology will benefit from this large consumer market in China becoming one of the first companies in China to infuse its skin care products CBD extracted from non-industrial hemp."
