CBD Surge: Amsterdam Genetics At The Forefront

Raking in billions of dollars per year and high year-over-year growth, CBD is one of the biggest booming trends in the global cannabis industry. Products containing CBD have been flying off shelves and becoming a staple in diets for people worldwide.

But what is it about CBD oil that’s driving this latest industry craze? And what is our role in making CBD products more widely available? There’s a lot to uncover, so let’s dive right in. 


What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, one of the leading chemical compounds in cannabis plants. Unlike THC found in marijuana, CBD comes from the hemp part of the plant and contains no (or up to 0.3%) THC, which is essentially inactive. It contains no psychoactive properties, so don’t expect to get high from it. Instead, it’s more widely used for its medical benefits—although there’s still lots of research needed to confirm the exact effects of it. 

CBD oil from our Amsterdam Genetics partner is how you’ll typically find it. It’s extracted from Sativa strains and converted into oil, which is then consumed in various ways. Some of the most common everyday use CBD products include:

Global CBD Market Continues to Surge

According to data from Precedence Research, the global CBD market has experienced a steady rise in recent years. In 2022, the global market size was over $15B. It’s estimated to finish 2023 at over $18B and double to over $36B within the next five years. Europe is the second-largest region for the CBD market, after North America, thanks to legalization efforts in the US. However, the European market is one of the fastest-growing regions due to numerous factors.

We can attribute the vast surge in the CBD market to the following reasons:

  • Legalization efforts
  • Growing awareness of medical benefits
  • Society’s increase in becoming more health-conscious

More people are gravitating towards CBD to remedy common ailments. Whether purchasing CBD oil from our trusted Amsterdam Genetics partner or cultivating from your own homegrown hemp, CBD can be the medical solution you’ve been looking for.


Benefits of Using CBD

So why such a big hype about CBD? It’s a major global trend that’s actually been around for centuries but is experiencing a revival thanks to the awareness of its many benefits. Some of the most common medical uses for CBD oil include treatment for:

  • Body aches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain
  • PTSD
  • Menopause
  • Increasing our immune system
  • Anxiety
  • Improve neurological health

In addition to health benefits, CBD also counteracts the effects of THC. For example, if you grow a strain with a higher THC content than you’re comfortable with, pairing it with CBD oil is a great way to balance the effects for a better high. Consider CBD as another element contributing to the cannabis entourage effect!

It’s important to note that many medical benefits attributed to CBD are still being researched to determine the cause and effect. While these benefits are common in CBD users, there is no definitive evidence as to how effective the compound is for treatment and correct dosage. Just like THC, the effects can vary by user and should be used in moderation if it’s your first time.

There are several ways to use CBD, including adding oil drops in beverages, rubbing topicals directly on your skin, or ingesting candy tables. How you consume CBD can also alter its effects and how potent it will be. Ingesting CBD can have delayed effects due to digestion (similar to eating THC edibles).


Benefits of Using CBD Oil from Amsterdam Genetics Partners

One of the biggest concerns about CBD in the industry is understanding just how effective it is for delivering its medical benefits. The transparency over specific dosages in certain products isn’t always accurate, while others may not have nearly as much CBD content to truly make a difference. CBD beverages, for example, may boast CBD from a few drops of oil that equate to 30mg of CBD, when a person may need upwards of 300mg to get its medical benefits. Quality and quantity are both important pillars of using CBD oil. Amsterdam Genetics partners with SupMedi to ensure quality control and deliver all the benefits you expect when using or consuming our products.

To achieve this, we focus on sourcing high-quality products to industry standards and examining their benefits before putting them on the market for our customers.
