In fact, given sizable interest, Piper Jaffray believes the CBD market could be worth up to $100 billion. That's opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF), Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE:GGB)(OTC:GGBXF), The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD)(OTC:TGODF), Charlotte's Web Holdings Inc.
