Background: President Trump signed the landmark $867 billion-dollar Farm Bill one month ago opening the flood gates to the expected $22 billion CBD industry. The health market for Cannabidiol (CBD) had been suppressed for decades, and now with the release of this pent-up demand, it may very well become the biggest business opportunity of the new decade.  


Since hemp-based CBD have less than .3% THC, it is legal in all 50 states and will not get you high.  Over 200 million people in the US alone will now find it easier to stop their suffering from anxiety, chronic pain and nausea plus a long list of other medical ailments, as a result of the unique role CBD plays within each person’s internal Endocannabinoid System.


“The Farm Bill has made it possible for people to access the enormously beneficial effects of CBD, and as a result the industry is poised for unprecedented growth. The CBD Training Academy has created a number of training programs designed to help people start and profit from this rewarding industry” says Rick Diamond, CEO of the CBD Training Academy. The Academy is leading the charge to ensure that industry professionals and interested entrepreneurs are trained properly to take advantage of this rapidly growing opportunity.
