An analysis of US Google searches has found the southern states of Alabama and Mississippi to be the most curious about CBD.
CBD and Hemp resource Nature and Bloom reviewed Google Trends data over the past 12 months to discover which states are most interested in researching CBD.
The study revealed that Alabama ranked highest, with popular search terms such as ‘CBD shop near me’ and ‘CBD’.
Mississippi came in second, with residents frequently typing ‘What is CBD’ and ‘Buy CBD’ into the search engine.
They were followed by West Virginia in third, with South Carolina and Vermont sharing fourth place and Kentucky and Tennessee sharing fifth.
The top of the list was dominated by southern/Republican states where recreational use has yet to be legalised.
The states least interested in searching for CBD were Massachusetts, followed by Utah, Illinois, Oklahoma, Nebraska and California.
