Sales have inched forward at about 20% in year-over-year terms, well below expectations for a product that’s just getting started, and consumer sentiment has become decidedly more mixed. This slowdown comes as a result of an oversaturation of CBD products and regulatory uncertainty that has hampered product launches and quality.
