CBD is a naturally occurring compound in cannabis and hemp which offers therapeutic and even medicinal solutions for a range of conditions. According to data recently gathered by Gallup, one of the largest U.S. analytics and advisory company based in Washington, D.C, at least one in seven Americans use CBD, and most of them use it for pain.
The latest poll found that Americans in the younger age demographic and those living on the West Coast were more likely to use CBD.
