It has several benefits in treating anxiety and seizures and reducing pain. Due to its healing properties, the demand for CBD for health and wellness purposes is high, which is the major factor driving the market. Out of all cannabinoids, cannabidiol is most widely used for therapeutic reasons due to the lack of psychoactive effects. In many medical applications, cannabidiol oil is used, such as anxiety and depression treatment, stress relief, diabetes prevention, pain relief, cancer symptom relief, and inflammation. Due to the increasing adoption of CBD-based products to treat ailments, the Middle East & Africa market is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period. Cannabidiol oil is increasingly being used to make skincare products to treat acne and wrinkles. Sephora, for example, had recently introduced cannabidiol or CBD skincare line to its stores.

Furthermore, the government of different countries as well as major players in the cannabinoid market are investing in research and development activities. The CBD is said to be an effective treatment for various neurological diseases including epilepsy in several clinical trials.
- Increasing demand for CBD in health & fitness
Rising awareness among consumers regarding health and fitness will help CBD market to witness rapid growth. Increasing consumer disposable income along with the legalization of medicinal cannabis is anticipated to have a positive impact on the demand for cannabidiol in this sector.

The chronic pain treatment has gained much popularity due to additional benefits offered by CBD when used. There has been increasing demand for cannabidiol (CBD) products over recent years owing to its widespread medical applications and pain relief treatment. CBD helps in reducing chronic pain by acting on variety of biological process in the body. In addition, CBD possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Therefore, CBD products reduces the anxiety that is experienced by the people suffering from the chronic pain. Thus, the increasing demand for CBD in the treatment of chronic pain is augmenting the market to grow. This also help people to maintain their health and fitness routines, while staying away from pain that may occur during fitness activities.
- Improving government approvals and regulations for CBD products
There are strict government regulations and CBD based products required strict approvals before they were marketed and supplied in the local as well international market, which limited the growth of the market. However, with time these restrictions have been eased up and there has been increasing acceptance of refined CBD products combined with the increasing legalization of marijuana and marijuana-derived products for various applications. This will drive the growth and demand in the market.
Moreover, there is the presence of major manufacturers of CBD products across the globe which has further induced the government and other regulatory bodies such as Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) in the U.S., European Union in Europe, etc. to ease up the restrictions for CBD and CBD based products.
High cost of CBD products
CBD is a popular and a holistic choice for people struggling with pain, inflammation, and sleep problems. Since CBD is a new product with less research and development and has lately been regulated and approved, therefore, the price of CBD are subject to fluctuations. The production of hemp became legal in 2018, which affected the price of CBD products. As a result, various CBD products witnessed some price inflation.
Moreover, many farmers are transitioning towards growing and selling hemp used to make CBD products, but despite the increased popularity of this product, it presents its own agricultural challenges. Firstly, switching over to a new crop results in new expenses. The most efficient way to harvest hemp is using a combine harvester. However, farmers who have previously grown crops that don’t require combines, such as strawberries, can’t afford to purchase a combine right away. Therefore, they need to hire people to help harvest the hemp, which drives up overall product prices as the raw material becomes costly.
Additionally, hemp requires more time and labor to grow and farmers need to inspect their crop closely as it grows. Furthermore, once it is harvested, extracting the cannabidiol is a difficult and expensive process. The processors and extractors of CBD need to use either ethanol or supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2 extraction). The extraction and refinement process requires special machinery and takes a long time, which drives up the CBD cost. Thus, all these factors add up to the costs of CBD products making them much more costly than other products, which is likely to restrain the market’s demand.
Increasing investments in development of new CBD based products
With the increasing trend of providing innovative and refined products in the market, manufacturers are spending large amounts in research and development for the production of new CBD based products. Oils, tinctures, concentrate, capsules, topical solutions such as slaves, lip balms, lotions, and edibles such as baked goods, coffee, chocolates, gums, and candies are some of the CBD products which are in high demand.
The increasing demand has increased the number of trials to study the impact of CBD on certain health conditions, which is expected to develop new products in turn providing opportunity for the rise in the demand in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, many companies procure CBD oils in bulk and manufacture CBD-infused products. In addition, numerous health and wellness retailers are offering CBD-based products, such as Rite Aid, CVS Health, and Walgreens Boots Alliance.
Moreover, with the ease in regulations and post the approval of cannabis products, the companies are investing huge amounts in the product development and upgrading the raw material production, which will also help them to cut down on costs while meeting the surging demand in the market. The new product development and increasing research and development activities along with various strategic decisions taken by key manufacturers in the market will offer lucrative opportunity for the growth of the Middle East & Africa CBD market.
- Side effects associated with CBD oil
Cannabidiol is well-known for its ability to cure a variety of illnesses, including anxiety, seizures, neurological problems, cancer-related nausea, chronic pain, and more. However, being useful for a variety of medical illnesses, various studies and research conducted by numerous organizations have shown that CBD-based medicines can have negative effects as well.
Some of the side effects that are commonly experienced by consumers include dry mouth, drowsiness, low blood pressure, and lightheadedness. CBD is also known to raise the level of Coumadin (a blood thinner) in the body, which can interact with other drugs and cause negative side effects. These factors might impede future adoption of CBD for therapeutic purposes.
Moreover, another cause for concern is the unreliability of the purity and dosage of CBD in products such as CBD oil. High concentration of CBD oil can also have harmful effects on the consumers’ health. In some cases, excessive use of CBD oil may also increase liver enzymes, which is a marker of liver inflammation. Cytochrome P450 (CYP450) is an enzyme which body uses to break down some drugs. CBD oil can block CYP450. That means that taking CBD oil with these drugs could make them have a stronger effect than one needs or make them not work at all.
Further, dietary supplements that contain CBD and a blend of herbal ingredients may not be safe for everyone, as many herbs have the potential to interact with commonly prescribed medications. All these side effects may vary from person to person as minor side effects for some may prove to be serious for others. This may pose as a challenge for the increasing demand of CBD products in the Middle East & Africa CBD market.
