Awareness days bring important movements center stage and inspire meaningful conversations. Over time, observing awareness days can help change attitudes, clarify common misconceptions, and keep that progress moving in the right direction. Friday, April 16, is National CBD Awareness Day.
Having a day set aside to promote education, highlight the latest industry research, share verified user testimonials, and shine the national spotlight on the #CBDMOVEMENT™ helps us, and those who share our enthusiasm for CBD, reach a significant number of people who could benefit.
Why Promote and Celebrate CBD Awareness Day?
Current research shows that nearly 90 percent of the people in our country know about CBD, well, heard of it anyway. That number is quite remarkable considering how few people knew about the cannabinoid just a few years ago, a fact worth celebrating. But that’s just one number we need to consider.
Although the CBD industry has experienced considerable growth in a relatively short amount of time, recent investigations show that fewer than 20% of the people who are aware of CBD have tried it.1 That’s a huge discrepancy. Why is there such a large gap? Because there’s still a lot of confusion and many misconceptions about CBD use.
According to a survey published just over a year ago, nearly 40% of those responding still believe that CBD and marijuana are one and the same. More than half mistakenly believe the cannabinoid causes intoxication. A similar consumer survey revealed that nearly half (45%) of the people intrigued by the cannabinoid’s health and wellness potential felt they didn’t know enough about CBD to make an informed decision.2,3 While sales increases suggest health-conscious consumers are embracing CBD, survey results like these confirm that people still have concerns that we, as an industry, need to address.
Why Is CBDistillery™ So Committed to CBD Awareness and Consumer Education?
We founded National CBD Awareness Day in 2019 because we understand that boosting consumer awareness is essential if we want to help those most likely to benefit from our products. When our company was founded in 2016, it was clear that the emerging CBD industry was over-run with overpriced, inferior products unlikely to be of any significant benefit. Far too many people were being taken advantage of.
We knew we could do better. From the start, we’ve been on an unwavering mission to be the premier source of high-quality, fairly priced CBD and consumer education, the type of information people can rely on to help them make informed health and wellness decisions. Today, CBDistillery™ is a reputable industry leader with more than 2 million satisfied customers.
It’s been clear from the beginning that one of the most difficult obstacles in our path was the stigma associated with cannabis use. To overcome that stigma and clear the confusion, we needed to ensure that people understood the differences between hemp and marijuana, knew why hemp-derived CBD does not cause intoxication, and understood the many potential benefits of supporting overall health and wellness with hemp-derived products.
Promoting CBD Awareness With Educational Resources From CBDistillery™
Whether you’ve been using hemp-derived CBD products for years or have just begun your journey, there are many ways to actively participate in the #CBDMOVEMENT™ on CBD Awareness Day. Since so many people learn about hemp-derived CBD from friends and family members, your efforts could have a significant impact on the overall health and wellness of those most likely to benefit.
Based on data collected from nearly 2000 CBDistillery™ customers, adults of all ages are using our hemp-derived CBD for better sleep, to feel more relaxed, and to ease inflammation, pain, and stiffness after physical activity.
