Hemp has a millennia-old tradition as a medicinal cultivated plant. Over recent years, awareness has grown of the active ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) and its numerous beneficial properties. If the “gold rush” occurred at the beginning of the 19th century, we now speak very much of a “green rush”. Whether in the form of oils, drops or nutritional supplements – the CBD market is booming, and this natural product is penetrating more and more markets and industries. This boom has also arrived in Switzerland, where the CBD market is firmly established and continues to grow. According to current estimates, the global market is set to grow to $ 22 billion in 2021.
