CBD in the News: 2020 Recap

2020 has been a pretty big year for the CBD industry, especially the wellness and beauty sectors of the industry. There have been many new companies and indie brands joining the industry, and it will be exciting to see the lay of the land for the industry in 2021! We thought we’d highlight a few of the biggest stories that happened in CBD and cannabis news this year for you all, so here are some of our favorite highlights from 2020!

Large Names in the CBD Beauty Industry Launch CBD Skincare

Even though there were lots of small, indie beauty brands hopping on the CBD skincare train, there were some bigger players who got some skin in the game this year as well. According to Cosmeticsdesign.com, Avon and Amway launched their own CBD skincare lines. These lines include a facial oil and multiple body creams.

Mexico Legalizes Hemp & Marijuana

One of the biggest headlines to come out of 2020 in the cannabis industry came from Mexico. In November of this year, the Mexican senate passed a bill that will legalize marijuana on a nationwide level. According to Marijuana Moment, the bill would allow “adults 18 and older to purchase and possess up to 28 grams of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants for personal use.” Before legalization can take place, the legislation must be passed by Mexico’s Chamber of Deputies, which is similar to our House of Representatives here in the US.

States Move Forward with Marijuana Legalization Measures

The 2020 US Election had a great impact on moving the cannabis industry forward, with multiple states passing legalization measures. According to Forbes, Arizona passed the recreational use of cannabis for adults 21 and older with Proposition 207. They also note that medical marijuana has been legal in the state of Arizona for about a decade now. New Jersey also legalized the use of recreational marijuana during the 2020 election. South Dakota voters also made big strides in their legalization measures. They legalized both the medical and recreational use of cannabis. Other states including Mississippi and Montana also made strides toward cannabis legalization.

Study Finds That CBD is Safe While Driving

According to a study recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, “small doses of CBD appear to have no significant impact on driving.” According to Marijuana Moment, the study came from the University of Sydney as a result of the growing public concern surrounding cannabis.
