The results obtained from a telephone poll taken by American Adults by Gallup has recently been made available reports Hemp Industry Daily. In particular, it explored how said adults perceived the health benefits of CBD, with the options being, ’A lot of health benefits’, ‘Some health benefits’, ‘Only a few health benefits’, ‘No health benefits’, and ‘No opinion’.
Turns out those who trust that CBD has a lot of health benefits comes from the younger population between the ages 18 and 29 (41%), followed by 30 to 49 (35%), 50 to 64 (31%) and 65+ (24%).
This being said, the average American adult believes that there are some benefits attached and this is regardless of age (46%). Hemp Industry Daily also noted that of more than 1,000 individuals surveyed, 78% of them were aware that at least some health benefits exist, 64% were aware of the existence of said compound, and the rest lack familiarity of the compound.
Interestingly, Gallup reported that while those within the 18 to 29 age group were very familiar with CBD, the level of awareness of two-thirds of those between 18 and 64 were somewhat there, which is “compared to about half of adults aged 65 and older.”
When asked whether said products are available over the counter (OTC), 61% of respondents supposedly believed they were, while 39% did not.
