All over the world, someone is experiencing a mental disorder. In 2019, the ratio was one to eight. However, this number jumped by 26% in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic started. People experiencing anxiety, major depressive disorders, and chronic stress began to increase, and their hold on their mental well-being was put to the test.
As of today, the effect of the pandemic on people’s mental health remains palpable: In a 2021 American study, nearly half of the respondents reported symptoms similar to anxiety and depression.
Though there are effective treatments available, not everyone has access to those treatments. Additionally, some countries still attach a stigma to the traditional treatment of mental health issues, which could add to the anxiety a person feels.
But now there are natural and alternative products that promise a better approach to treating mental health issues. One of these is using CBD products. CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, can help treat mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
While CBD has garnered significant attention in recent years for its potential therapeutic properties, the availability and accessibility of the product still largely depends on the country and the local laws that regulate CBD products.
CBD Products: A Worldwide Phenomenon
CBD products for mental health disorders have rapidly gained popularity across the globe. Whether you’re in North America, Europe, Asia, or any other continent, chances are you’ll find a diverse range of CBD items available for purchase.
This global accessibility is a testament to the growing acceptance and understanding of the potential benefits of CBD. More people are finding that its popularity stems from its potential therapeutic benefits and minimal side effects.
In the United States alone, the percentage of CBD users has increased to 24% in 2022, which is expected to increase by 35% in 2024. The global market for CBD has now increased to 12 billion USD, and with more markets opening up, it is expected to reach 56 billion USD by 2028.
However the regional availability of CBD products have different regulations and certification requirements. Each region has several CBD product suppliers, and though many could be accessible online, the different regulations and tests could mean that some CBD products will not be available if you order outside the region.
In North America, particularly in the United States and Canada, CBD products are widely accessible. The 2018 Farm Bill in the U.S. legalized industrial hemp, paving the way for a CBD boom. From CBD oils and tinctures to gummies and topicals, there’s a plethora of choices for individuals seeking natural alternatives for mental health support.
Europe, too, has seen a surge in CBD availability. Countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, and Switzerland have established regulatory frameworks for CBD products, making them readily obtainable. European consumers can choose from an array of CBD-infused products to address their mental health concerns.
Although regulations vary significantly, many Asian countries are also witnessing the growing availability of CBD products. In places like Japan and South Korea, CBD is gradually becoming recognized as a potential aid for mental health. As regulations evolve, the accessibility of CBD is expected to increase in the region.
