Brightfield Group, which has established itself as a thought leader in the CBD space, just announced projections for the hemp CBD industry to become a $5.7 billion market by next year, with a projection of growth by nearly 40x to $22 billion by 2022.

These projections come in anticipation of the passing of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, which would fully and unambiguously legalize hemp and its extracts across the country.

“We believe that blowing market sizes and growth figures out of proportion would do our customers and market a great disservice,” said Brightfield’s Senior Analyst Jamie Schau.

“This year’s hemp CBD forecasts might seem like a departure from that view, but I assure you they are not. These numbers reflect the substantial changes we anticipate will follow full federal legalization of hemp-derived CBD.”
