More than 1,500 exhibitors from across the country came to Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, Md., this fall to show off their natural, organic and hemp-derived products.
Charlotte’s Web was one of many CBD products demonstrated in Expo East’s new Hemp Pavilion.
Expo East featured an entire day devoted to a hemp and CBD summit, which covered labeling, regulation, marketing, sector growth and more.
Hemp-derived lotions and skin care products were hot items.
During the hemp and CBD summit, speakers shared how legal cannabis will continue to disrupt every consumer industry.
More than 50 exhibitors brought new products to the Hemp Pavilion.
Exhibits like these dominated Expo East, with skin care and lotions that promise natural ingredients made for “conscious consumers.”
CBD sales in the U.S. have skyrocketed in the past three years, coming in at $7 million in 2017, $40.6 million in 2018, and $132.9 million in 2019.
