CBD retail in the United States - Statistics and Facts

CBD or cannabidiol is a natural substance derived from cannabis, found in both marijuana and the non-psychoactive hemp plant. Unlike delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound and may alleviate things such as anxiety and pain, which is why it is used to create wellness products, such as oils, edibles and functional beverages.

State of the market

In the United States, cannabidiol products generated sales of roughly 5.3 billion U.S. dollars in 2021. By 2026, CBD product sales are predicted to reach nearly 16 billion U.S. dollars in the United States. E-commerce is expected to grow during that time but remain at around a 40 percent share of overall sales. Despite accounting for less than half of sales, e-commerce is actually the single largest channel in the CBD market. Pharmacy's, the next largest channel, account for just half of the sales the online market generates.

Popular products

CBD products come in many different shapes and sizes, including tea, vape products, and soaps. In American convenience stores, vitamins were the leading CBD segment in terms of sales, generating over 20 million U.S. dollars in 2020. In 2021, Sky Wellness, a maker of edibles, topicals, vapes, and pet products was the top selling CBD brand in convenience stores in the United States in the final quarter of the year. Whisl was the second best selling brand in that year. Overall, edibles like gummies, followed by capsules (vitamins) were the segments of CBD products that sparked the most interest among consumer in the U.S. In terms of beverages, a still small but growing category, seltzer and sparkling water were the preferred segment among consumers.
