FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  Calabasas, CA:  The Cannabidiol or CBD market has seen a striking increase in growth as consumers and health practitioners begin to realize the benefits of CBD. Since hemp-based CBD has no psychoactive properties, it is legal in all 50 states. A growing number of people around the world are experiencing the practical health benefits of CBD, from cancer patients finding relief from the side effect of chemotherapy to the more than 200 million people in the US suffering from sleep, anxiety or chronic pain issues. The CBD market is growing at such a rapid pace, that The Brightfield Group projects the market size to reach $22 billion by 2022.

“The growth in the industry has created a flow of CBD entrepreneurs entering the business, but few understand the dynamics, use and dosing requirements” says Rick Diamond, CEO of the CBD Training Academy.  The Academy is leading the charge to ensure that industry professionals are trained and knowledgeable to consult with clients.

The CBD Training Academy will be presenting a live training event for people in the business and those wishing to enter the industry of CBD consulting or sales.
