  • With increased venture capital support, CBD startups are expanding and actively looking for channels to generate revenue: We expect more brands and retailers to add CBD formulations, which will drive consumer interest and foot traffic.
  • Consumers remain interested in physical retail for browsing and researching products. Physical stores are a point of discovery for emerging brands, and new products such as CBD are effective in drawing in customers.
  • Surveys suggest that consumers prefer to buy CBD in store, and producers are partnering with retailers and REITs to expand distribution channels.
