Watch out, CBD – these two lesser-known cannabis compounds could be the next hottest trend…

In the cannabis industry, we all know 2019 was the “Year of CBD.”

From gas stations to Sephora, it seemed like everywhere you went, you could buy some type of CBD product.

It makes sense.

Researchers are still studying all the powers of cannabis-based medicine, but CBD has shown that it can relieve pain, reduce anxiety and depression, lower high blood pressure, and help with substance abuse treatment.

The word is spreading about all of the potential benefits, and that’s why someone who has never used CBD before is willing to pay $39.99 at CVS to buy hemp balm on a whim.

In 2018, the U.S. CBD industry was worth roughly $620 million, and as I mentioned, things have really ramped up.

I conservatively projected sales would reach $2 billion, but I also said I wouldn’t be surprised if sales totaled $3 billion this year. The CBD market will continue to experience explosive growth, with sales potentially climbing to $23.7 billion by 2023.

However, CBD is not the only powerful cannabis compound out there.

In fact, there are two other lesser-known compounds that you are going to hear much more about in 2020…

The Rise of THCV and CBN

Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THCV for short, appears in small quantities in the marijuana plant.

It can produce a psychoactive effect in high dosages like THC but, unlike THC, it can work as an appetite suppressant. In fact, some brands are now focusing on selling products high in THCV because customers are saying it’s helping with weight loss.

The idea that there is a specific cannabis compound that can suppress one’s appetite rather than increase it, as cannabis is better known for, is astounding.

And that’s not all. A 2013 study found that THCV could be used as a medicine or paired with other medicines to help treat Type 2 diabetes. Another study found that THCV could alleviate symptoms for those with Parkinson’s and even delay disease progression.

There’s a lot of promise behind this compound, but there is also still a lot to learn.

In fact, in 2018, Cronos Group Inc. (Nasdaq: CRON) made a $122 million deal with Ginkgo Bioworks, a Boston-based bioengineering company.

Through the partnership, the bioengineering firm will create rare cannabinoids in large quantities, and one of those compounds is THCV.

Expect to hear a lot more about THCV in 2020.

Evidence of cannabis health benefits proceeds to grow. Researchers continue to uncover the healing powers of cannabis, which is good news for consumers, companies, and investors like you. These new developments have big pharma shaking in their boots.

CBN as a Sleep Aid

A lot of people who consume CBD do so because it helps them relax but still keeps them alert.

CBN, on the other hand, has been found to offer a sedative effect.

A 2016 survey from Consumer Reports found that 27% of adults in the United States had trouble falling asleep.

And another study published earlier this month found that over-the-counter sleep aid sales have plummeted by as much as 236% in Colorado since recreational cannabis became legal – suggesting that consumers actually prefer cannabis as a sleep aid when given the option.

It would only make sense, then, that CBN could be turned to as a sleep aid.

There need to be more studies done, but the compound still has a lot of promise.

It could give people the chance to stop using heavy drugs or self-medicating to fall asleep.

It has also been found to provide symptom relief for arthritis, seizures, and Crohn’s disease.

These are two of the compounds you’ll hear about the most in 2020 (outside of CBD and THC), but this is just the start.

With more research, the true powers of the cannabis plant will be unlocked, and we will know more about the health benefits of cannabis than ever before.

The cannabis industry as a whole is still in its infancy stage, which gives you a ground-floor opportunity that you may never see again.

That’s why my team at the National Institute for Cannabis Investors released this free guide on the “Best Pot Stocks to Buy in 2020.”

In it, you’ll find out our picks for the best short-term profit opportunities and the best long-term profit opportunities.

P.S. This tiny startup is about to take the world by storm with one very special product. To be clear, this product doesn’t contain THC. It’s not going to get you high. All it’s going to deliver is a mild calming effect. And what’s most impressive is the product could help investors see an increase of 35x in the next 24 months alone…

  1. I just wrote you that we have no idea of the limits of what we will find in that plant. I would perhaps like to invest in a company that specializes in producing any cannabis alkaloid that shows ANY promise as I believe there is a wealth of great medicine in that power-plant.

  2. Just wait until they start looking at combinations of these THC “cousins'” It has been “known” for along time among cannabis users and readers of High Times that the chemical makeup of the resin can have very different effects depending on how they are combined. A substance that by itself may do little or nothing, when combined with THC, can change the effect drastically. Turn some high THC strain that causes an uplifting feeling, into something that makes you a couch potato. I think these combinations will be the real gold mine, and single compounds like THC and CBD will be more like silver and copper. This plant will be yielding new discoveries for many years to come.
    I believe that CBN is the substance that makes cannabis indica so much more sleepy, than Cannabis Sativa which is more like a minor hallucinogen. Other chemicals can make you laugh and happy. These pharmaceutical companies need to look at the folklore regarding cannabis, I think they will get some good leads. These new discoveries are not that new. I bet some of the leads might very well come off clay tablets.

  3. Cannabis is a miracle plant that the government has kept from all us Americans that need its affects for 82 years. Lying to us so they BIG farma could push there bad drugs on us for trillions in profit, that is almost over, Thank God !!!!!

  4. I personally use it at bedtime to help with pain and sleep problems. started with a mist spray I liked then Amazon could no longer supply the brand really like so bought oil straight and made my own mist spray. not sure I got portion right but still worked rather than use as rub for hard to reach places of pain. Now am trying a different one drops by mouth along with spray and have definitely found a lot of pain relief thru nighttime. Can’t say I sleep good yet but better more refreshed when get up in morning so I approve making it legal since like you say can buy it everywhere nowdays.

  5. i am a user of marijuana for over 40 yrs. now i am a investor i hope for some gains. and future cures of this miraculous plant..looking for the declaration of a first class drug wrongly done by a biless government ,and fica to let owners to bank their prophets.

  6. I have used CBD since 12-2018, it has been a blessing for me. Have learned that local shops get CBD from Industrial Hemp, whereas those who have passed through your site come from Hemp with Cannibis, there for it takes less quantity to achieve better results. I also tried CBD with THC, it knocked me out. I could not function, period. I have learned i can use externally, on arthritic pain, surgical healing, bruises on body, anything on outside of body.
    My daughter has hers’ made for her in gummy form, she does OK.
