Propelled by the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, the cannabidiol (CBD) market continues to grow. Consumers from all 50 states can legally purchase CBD. If you live in a state without a provision for legal cannabis, you still have access to hemp-derived CBD. So many companies have flooded the market in the past few years that this hardly feels like a restriction.

Here, we’ve done some work for you. Below, you’ll find a list of CBD companies we think are worth keeping an eye on in 2020.
