The United States is the largest producer of marijuana in the world.

As a psychoactive drug, cannabis continues to find extensive favor among recreational and medical users in the U.S.

Twenty six states in the U.S. have legalized or decriminalized the drug, with Hawaii become the latest state to do so, in early July.

Nevertheless, the use, sale and possession of marijuana is illegal under federal law.

Many retailers in the U.S. have started to sell CBD-infused personal care products in the U.S. to capitalize on the booming CBD business.

Drugstore chains such as Walgreens Boot Alliance and CVS Health Corp. are already selling CBD products in their stores.
