What’s become your lockdown coping mechanism? A fast and furious exercise regime? A daily dose of meditation? Or perhaps you’ve turned to CBD? One of the wellness industry’s newest wonder ingredients, CBD tends to provoke mixed opinions. For some, it’s the holy grail of anxiety solutions. Others question whether it does anything at all; and some mistakenly think it might get them high. Divisive it may be, but CBD brands have recorded huge spikes in sales during the lockdown period. Premium brand Trip is a case in point, having witnessed a 420 per cent increase in sales since strict social distancing was introduced – a figure that continues to rise daily.
