CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- cbdMD, Inc. a nationally recognized consumer cannabidiol (CBD) brand (NYSE American: YCBD), and the Registrar at National Day Calendar, celebrate the second annual “National Hemp Day.”

cbdMD founded the holiday on Feb. 4, 2019, to increase overall awareness and coverage of the entire hemp industry. Due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-based products – such as CBD oil, plastics, paint, insulation, and biofuels – are more readily available for consumer use than ever before. Thanks to the recent support surrounding the industry, several studies project that the hemp and CBD markets could become a multibillion-dollar industry in just a few short years.

“Celebrating another holiday we founded here at cbdMD is a tremendous honor,” said Ken Cohn, Chief Marketing Officer at cbdMD. “We’re hoping that people will continue to educate themselves on the hemp industry, while continuing to explore the many CBD applications and how they can support an overall outlook on daily well-being.”

National Hemp Day, in conjunction with National CBD Day (August 8), National CBD Month (January), and National Hemp Month (July), was initiated to create awareness while highlighting the many applications of hemp-derived CBD and how it can support millions of people across the world every year.
