Hemp seed oil consists of cannabidiol (CBD), which has healing properties and helps in the treatment of various health concerns including anxiety, epilepsy, and others. Owing to such factors, the use of the product is increasing. Moreover, consumers are increasingly becoming aware of the numerous health benefits of the products, which are highly being utilized in products such as supplements, sauces, cooking oils, and others, which is further expected to drive the industry growth in the coming years.
The COVID-19 pandemic had a severe impact on various industries including personal and beauty care, and the food and beverage industry. However, the pandemic had zero to no effect on the global hemp seed oil market as most people were buying the oil owing to its role in building immunity and fighting against many distinct strains and infections such as the common flu and cold. Due to this factor, consumers across the globe increasingly started consuming hemp seed oil as it boosts the immune system by naturally fighting off the presence of unwanted microbes in the body.
