Why This Is Important

The European CBD market is fairly small, but is poised for a tremendous growth in the near future driven by demand among consumers, high spending in the region, and an ease in regulations that might be catalyzed by the UN's decision regarding CBD that has recently been requested by the World Health Organization.

In a recent report, Brightfield Group said European CBD market could reach $1.7 billion by 2023, registering a CAGR of 42 percent. Germany is expected to be the leading market with a share of $605 million.

Aphria's stock traded higher by 6.2 percent to $9.90 per share at time of publication.
