PALM BEACH, Florida, Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- When The Brightfield Group released its projections for CBD markets, the Farm Bill was yet to become law and there was some push-back by observers. Brightfield's report, released last September 2018, their headline was: "Hemp CBD Market to Reach $22 Billion By 2022: Outpacing the Rest of the Cannabis Market Combined". That was an unexpected figure given prior projections, but the company has repeatedly stood by its projections. The company publicly responded: "Many were surprised to see our team release numbers that, on their surface, appear to be very much out of step with those seen prior to the release of our 2018 CBD study. We recognize that these estimates are shocking, and we stand by them. Hemp-derived CBD has been gaining huge momentum in the shadows of its oft-spoken about cousin, marijuana, allowing its growth to be largely overlooked - both by analysts in the nutraceuticals industry, medical industry, and cannabis industry We believe the hemp CBD market is going to skyrocket and is here to stay. Readers can rest assured that our experienced analysts and a vast pool of data support these market sizes and growth figures, despite the risks, barriers, and competitors facing hemp CBD products. Active companies in the markets this week include The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTC:BOSQF), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB), 1933 Industries Inc. (CSE: TGIF) (OTC: TGIFF), Cannex Capital Holdings Inc. (CSE: CNNX) (OTC: CNXXF), MedMen Enterprises Inc. (CSE: MMEN) (OTC: MMNFF).
Brightfield again stood firm in another public announcement: "Our forecasts are amongst the highest and we stand behind them. We have interviewed hundreds of people in the industry, surveyed thousands of consumers, conducted market analysis across literally millions of data points. We are a team of highly conservative analysts and we did not take this lightly – (we) honestly believe that these are conservative numbers. We have no rose-colored glasses in terms of the bizarre and challenging regulatory framework that surround this industry, it will always be two steps forward, one step back. There are sure to be some problematic regulations and bumps along the way. But there is too much momentum, too much demand and too much potential for this industry not to explode."
