What Is CBD, And Why Are Canadians Taking It?

These days in Canada, there are so many people asking questions about CBD, like what it actually is and why people are taking it. Some people are also asking how to get into CBD and where they can purchase some products.

The CBD industry in Canada is huge, take the hemp (where CBD is extracted from) industry, for example, it is predicted to be worth about $1 billion in 2023. Honestly, it could be more, seeing how the whole industry is thriving and evolving every year. The proof of that can be seen in Canada, with so many online and brick-and-mortar stores selling dozens or even hundreds of different CBD products.

Naturally, the popularity and reliability of CBD have attracted many newcomers. Canadians are now asking about CBD, its benefit, where to get it, and why they should take it.

What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is a natural substance or compound that comes from hemp plants. It has many health benefits that we know today and based on how much research is going on right now, we might find more benefits.

Although the way CBD works is pretty much still a mystery, it has shown to be effective to ease the symptoms of certain ailments such as insomnia and anxiety. And considering how safe CBD is compared to modern medicines, people can take it regularly. Many Canadians are also taking CBD simply to relax and chill.

Cannabidiol is a versatile substance that can be turned into many products: edibles, capsules and pills, beverages, oils, and vapes. Each type of product has its own pros and cons, and every newcomer is encouraged to do their research before making their first purchase. So if one product doesn’t suit you, you can always try the others and see which one works best for you.

One of the most important things when choosing CBD products know what’s available in Canada and the terminologies. These terminologies are full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate. Full-spectrum means the product contains all compounds of hemp plants, including THC. Broad-spectrum is similar to full-spectrum but without THC. CBD isolate, on the other hand, only contains CBD and nothing else. I think you can take a guess why knowing these terminologies is important.

Some people don’t want to consume THC at all for various reasons, while other people don’t mind it at all. There is also something called the Entourage Effect that you should be aware of, which is a theory that says other compounds in hemp plants enhance the effects of CBD. Although we still don’t know much about that, many people still believe the theory.

Why are Canadians taking CBD?

Obviously, I can’t say for sure what reasons do every Canadian has to take CBD. But there are some things that CBD is famous for, and those things could very well be the reasons why Canadians are taking it.

CBD is more than just health benefits

While it is true that cannabidiol offers many health benefits, it is more than just that. Many Canadians are taking CBD for use for the fun of it. Take CBD vapes, for example, vaping is already popular all over the world, but people mostly vape with nicotine, not CBD. So, some people might be switching to CBD because vaping is fun.

And there are also CBD edibles, which can be tasty and fun. Like CBD gummies, for example, they are available in various flavors, shapes, and sizes. Some people love gummies and CBD is just an added bonus.

A lot of people are relying on CBD

Some people who are suffering from certain ailments like insomnia, anxiety, and chronic pain are relying on CBD to feel better. CBD may be able to reduce inflammation that can cause pain. There are so many factors at play here, but one thing is for sure, a lot of people have felt better thanks to CBD.

And depending on the severity of their ailments, it can be difficult to stop taking CBD. Cannabidiol has become an important part of people’s lives – as long as they can purchase it in Canada, I don’t think Canadians will ever stop taking it.

There are so many products available on the market

No matter how great a product is, humans tend to get bored after some time. But with CBD products, considering all the options you have today, I think they will always be interesting and engaging to many people.

So we have CBD gummies, chocolates, beverages, oils, capsules, pills, etc. in Canada.  Even one type of product may have plenty of options from flavors, doses, ingredients, and more. Exploring these different products can keep Canadians stay interested and engaged for a long time. Furthermore, we may get new CBD products in the future as well.


There you have it, the reasons why Canadians are taking CBD. The more we know about cannabidiol in the future, there may be more reasons to take it. Nevertheless, the future of cannabidiol is looking bright, and it is here to stay, especially in Canada.
