As we know now, the CBD and cannabis sector is one of the sectors whose growth is increasingly accelerating and expanding. Let’s try to understand how it is possible to learn more about both sectors, and, if you wish, to become part of it.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a component of cannabis that is becoming increasingly popular as a dietary supplement. The numerous therapeutic benefits and positive health effects that CBD possesses are increasingly making the sector a very attractive market for many subjects. CBD is sold in the form of oil, herbal tea, mixed with food, in preparations for topical application, and a host of other forms. The huge potential of the CBD market has led many people to wonder if they could enter the new business and to explore the various ways they can do so. Of course, to enter the fantastic world of cannabis and cannabinoids, the first thing to do is to understand what you are talking about.

So, what is CBD?

It is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids contained in the cannabis Sativa plant. The best-known cannabinoid of all is THC, which is responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. However, CBD has no psychoactive effects, on the contrary, it is responsible for the therapeutic effects of light marijuana.

If you intend is to open an online CBD shop to start your new business, then the first thing you need to do is start your cultivation of cannabis plants (which in Italy, however, it must be emphasized, at present it is not it’s legal) and start growing your own plants. CBD oil will be extracted from these plants, according to a wide range of methodologies. After that, it will be possible to “contract out” the extraction process to someone else. The final product will be CBD oil or CBD that can be used for all those products mentioned above: foods, herbal teas, creams, supplements, e-liquids etc.

CBD Italia: the “new business” of delivery

In Italy, the enormous expansion of the hemp sector has led to an equally exponential growth in delivery services and product delivery to the end-user.

As is the case with take-away foods which, especially in this period, are delivered directly to the home via delivery boys, CBD products sold in shops or stores (including online) in Italy have now met new life thanks to new distribution and delivery services. Such a service made available, often, by the owners of the sites that trade (legal) marijuana online. Of course, these are always products containing light and therefore legal cannabis with a THC content of less than 0.2%.

Big opportunities in front of us

Legal hemp is the one that is experiencing the most flourishing market, with a simultaneous growth in turnover and the “new business” of CBD delivery. The turnover of the CBD industry, according to projections, will start to grow indefinitely in the near future. It need not be added that society is also becoming increasingly “open” and tolerant of this new business, and the acceptance of CBD as a therapeutic substance with a thousand uses, with a thousand healing properties. Many people are now turning to CBD for pain relief, relaxation, for the numerous positive effects on the treatment of inflammation and numerous other diseases that general medicine cannot cure. More and more online and e-commerce sites are equipping themselves with real showcases through which to sell their products containing CBD.

CBD products can be found online

CBD oils: this is the most famous and sold product, the one bottle with a dropper to best dose the product contained within. Usually, the product is taken sublingually.

CBD edible products: this includes sweets, baked goods, snacks, candies, and other confectionery products. Here too, the sector is rapidly expanding, with a constantly growing turnover.

Vape and vaping liquids: to be used with electronic cigarettes to vaporize and inhale the product, obviously containing CBD.

Creams: gels, sprays and creams for topical application, with CBD to relieve trauma and pain in the joints or various parts of the body. The products are placed in direct contact with the skin, on the area affected by pain or trauma, to favour a better and more direct absorption of the therapeutic CBD.

Sometimes, CBD can also show up in the forms of capsules and pills.

How to start your own business in the CBD?

First of all, many will have noticed that in some online stores (which sell products with cannabis light) it is even, in some cases, possible to send your application in the “work with us” section. This can be one of the countless opportunities to enter the new business and expanding CBD delivery industry, as a delivery boy to begin with. Then, of course, some think they are embarking on a real career by starting their own CBD business, even online in e-commerce. Of course, we must take into account that it is a real business activity, with all the risks and difficulties involved. And it is, as we have already said is a sector in continuous growth and expansion in which there are many opportunities to enter and to obtain a successful business. 

In conclusion

The explosive growth of CBD in recent years and the flourishing of new shops, online and physically present in major Italian cities, are excellent examples of what we are talking about. It is a real business, like many others in different sectors. Some steps and procedures must necessarily and carefully be completed to achieve success. This must not be forgotten. Just as we must not forget that it is a sector, that of the CBD, which is deeply intertwined with the legal one, in which it is necessary to move with lead feet, knowing in depth the context within which one goes to be.
