Reasons for the increasing market size of CBD products

Mostly responsible for the increasing demand in CBD products are the various medical application fields and positive effects the organic product has on our health and well-being. Cannabidiol products are used to cure medical diseases such as insomnia, anxiety, nausea, stress related illnesses, chronic as well as neurologic pain. CBD products for instance alleviate adverse reactions of chemotherapy and become alternatives for traditional drugs with strong negative side effects. In light of the incrementing number of cancer patients all over the world, CBD products are gaining more and more significance.

The second driver for the rapid market growth are state regulations. Especially in the CBD market, laws and edicts restricted the sale and hence, inhibited the expansion of the market. In the last years, however, more and more regions and countries have loosened the regulatory stance on CBD significantly, which increments the products’ utilization and its presence in retail stores and pharmacies.

The main segments of the CBD market

The CBD market can be segmented by source, product type, geographical region and by application fields.

The CBD market by source

CBD products derive either from hemp or marijuana. Due to the higher availability of marijuana both in Europe and North America, marijuana derivatives are slightly more relevant than hemp-derived products. Nevertheless, hemp products are becoming more and more popular in various regions and the demand is expected to rise as well in the near future.

The CBD market by product types

Today, CBD is available in myriad product types:

  • Oils
  • Tinctures
  • Suppositories
  • Transdermal patches
  • Isolates
  • Pills
  • Vape oils
  • Creams

Interestingly, CBD oil is expected to be the most dominant and popular product type on the global market.

Packaging solutions for CBD products

Drugs and health products are in need of inert packaging solutions. Furthermore, CBD products are natural based, have a delicate nature and, hence, tend to interact with the environment. Due to its many positive properties, glass is an ideal packaging material. Not only is glass a sustainable material, it also ensures stability of the filled item and acts as a natural barrier against the outside world.

As a leading glass packaging producer, Stoelzle offers a variety of glass containers ideal to store and conserve CBD products:

Dropper bottles / tincture bottles
Pill bottles
Wide mouth packers
Syrup bottles
Shaped bottles 
Medicine bottles 
Mini roller ball bottles
Glass bottles for CBD oils

Our product range includes amber glass containers, which, due to light-filtering properties, protect the cannabidiol products from oxidation. Moreover, since CBD products are highly sensible drugs, Stoelzle offers child resistant (CRC) pipette closures and caps, so that your offspring cannot open the glass vessel. In fact, Stoelzle’s one-stop-shop mentality allows customers to choose from a broad range of caps and closures made out of plastic and metal. A further advantage – vital for any health products – is that the various caps allow precise dosing.
