The cannabidiol, or CBD, market is one of the fastest growing in the natural-products sector, with the hemp derivative making its way into everything from bottled water to confectionery.
The best of these innovations, and a whole lot more besides, can be discovered at this month's Natural & Organic Products Europe trade show, which takes place at ExCeL London on 7 and 8 April.
“Increased recognition of the medical benefits of CBD – aiding everything from chronic pain and inflammation, to anxiety and insomnia – means we have seen a surge in its popularity at the show this year,” says event director Carol Dunning.
“For retailers and buyers wanting to tap into the trend, there’s so much to discover – CBD products are present across health, beauty and food, plus we’ve got three dedicated CBD seminars taking place in the theatres, to bring you up to date with everything you need to know.”
In addition, the Natural Beauty Talks Theatre will play host to a discussion on the potential of cannabis in the cosmetics industry, including its many benefits for use in beauty products, hosted by herbalist and co-founder of Hemptouch, Silvija Špehar, while Jacek Kramarz, co-founder of HemPoland, will be offering his thoughts on the benefits of CBD at the Natural Products Talks Theatre.
Natural & Organic Products Europe opens this Sunday, 7 April, at 9.30am, and the official Show Guide is now online, to help you to start planning your day.
The 190-page guide includes a full A-Z exhibitor list, product listings, seminar schedules, exhibitors seeking distribution, and so much more.
