HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / January 28, 2019 / Cannabis is quickly becoming one the most disruptive forces in the world.
So much so, it could disrupt some $500 billion worth of global markets, says Canopy Growth Chairman and CEO, Bruce Linton, who also called that a more ''accurate'' estimate than ''conservative'' predictions for $200 billion.
In fact, cannabis' presence can already be seen in beverages, alcohol, sports drinks, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, and the $4.2 trillion wellness industry are being transformed nearly overnight. As a matter of fact, the healing qualities of cannabis are why spa, wellness and skincare industries are introducing a range of products with cannabis as a key ingredient.
''Hemp-derived CBD has been touted in several medical studies as having a myriad of health benefits ranging from treating psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and eczema to minimizing seizures, stress, and insomnia,'' says Forbes.
Cannabis is even disrupting sunscreen.
Nowadays, CBD is being incorporate into sunscreen protection, too.
Not only can cannabis-infused sunscreen protect your skin from the sun, it will also help reduce localized pain and any inflammation in the event of a sunburn.
Along the way, it's opening a ground-floor opportunity for investors in a global sun care market, expected to be worth $24.91 billion by 2024. It's creating sizable sales opportunity for several companies, including The Yield Growth Corporation (CSE: BOSS)(OTCQB: BOSQF), Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TGODF) (CSE: TGOD), Namaste Technologies Inc. (CSE:N)(NXTTF), and Aleafia Health (ALEF)(ALEAF).
The Yield Growth Corporation's (BOSS)(BOSQF), for example, just announced the completion of U.S. FDA complaint tests on human subjects to evaluate the effectiveness of Urban Juve's proprietary sunscreen formula - which is SPF-31. Urban Juve's sunscreen formula also passed the FDA broad spectrum test. Sunscreen products that pass the FDA broad spectrum test can be labeled as "Broad Spectrum,'' meaning they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
At the moment, The Yield Growth subsidiaries are developing and manufacturing a wide range of other personal care products containing hemp root oil and various cannabinoids. In addition, The Yield Growth is currently seeking to obtain necessary licenses to process cannabis and manufacture cannabis products in multiple jurisdictions where such products can be sold.
Namaste Technologies Inc. (N)(NXXTF) is one of the largest online retailers for medical cannabis delivery systems in the world. The company sells vaporizers and smoking accessories through e-commerce sites in over 20 countries with distribution locations around the world. In addition, its product offerings -- through subsidiaries -- includes vaporizers, glassware, accessories, and CBD products. In recent months, the company has grown to more than 14,000 users online and mobile users.
