Cannabidiol (CBD) is sold as a nutritional supplement and is believed to have a wide range of health benefits. Studies have shown that the substance can be useful in reducing stress and anxiety levels, and even chronic pain. Canex aims to make all the information regarding CBD available to everyone.

The CBD industry has experienced unprecedented growth in the last year alone (8-11% of UK adults are believed to have tried CBD products). This is thought to be 3-6 times larger than previous estimations had indicated. This growth is expected to continue, with the UK CBD industry already being bigger than the UK Vitamin C and Vitamin D industries combined.

However, in comparison to this growth, the public are significantly undereducated on the subject. Not only this, but both under-regulation, and non-uniform regulation, have led to poor practise in the industry itself.

Canex aims to keep readers up to date with everything that is going on in the industry. From regulation and legislation reforms, industry updates and guides through the ongoing studies of the substance; to product news, reviews and guides, Canex has it covered.

Here in the UK, the Cannabidiol industry is on the point of real change. A number of independent agencies, including the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis (CMC) and the Cannabis Trades Association (CTA), have carried out ground-breaking reviews of the industry. Following these reviews, weighted calls are being made for reform and education in all areas. Canex believes that it is crucial to keep the conversation fair, by providing a portal for normal people to access these findings more easily.

It is also expected, following a proposal by the CMC, that research and clinical studies of Cannabidiol will increase. The findings of these studies will need to be made accessible to everyone, in order to help build an educated public.
