LAS VEGAS, December 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
CBD-infused foods are gaining strong momentum in the market as consumers demand more healthy food options. CBD is considered a healthy alternative to pharmaceuticals that have horrible side effects, like opioids. It can be used as one component in holistic health treatments. As CBD-oil infused markets continue to gain traction, healthy food options are growing.
Traditionally, consumers think of CBD-oil infused edibles as cookies, gummy bears, or brownies. Now companies are producing healthy food products to meet the needs of those seeking healthy alternatives to traditional CBD-infused snacks. CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabis compound with several therapeutic properties. Infusing this compound into healthy foods is helping consumers fight anxiety, pain, over-eating, and insomnia.
