A study from Nature and Bloom on CBD searches during the past 12 months indicated that Alabama is the most interested state in using CBD, and searches for CBD in the United States have increased 197% in the past decade. In second place is Mississippi, followed by West Virginia in third. Massachusetts is the state least interested in using CBD, according to the report.
Nature and Bloom examined Google Trends data to give each state a total search score, the lower the score the higher the state ranks, revealing which states are the most interested in using CBD.
With the highest total search score of 62, Alabama topped the list, and the population of Alabama searched for "CBD shop near me" and "CBD" the second most in America. The second state most interested in using CBD is Mississippi, which had a search score of 69, the second-highest combined score for CBD-related searches. The state is searching for "What is CBD" more than any other state in the U.S. and fifth most for "Buy CBD" in the country.
West Virginia is the third state in America most interested in using CBD. It is also searching for medical marijuana the fourth most in the U.S., despite not searching for "CBD shop near me."
South Carolina and Vermont share fourth place with both states totaling the same combined search score of 71. South Carolina is searching the most for "CBD Shop near me", "CBD" and "What is CBD," while Vermont has the highest number of searches for "Buy CBD" in America and the second highest number of searches for "Cannabidiol" and "CBD" in the country. Kentucky and Tennessee (tied for fifth) have the highest number of searches for 'CBD Oil' and "CBD Shop near me," respectively.
The state least interested in using CBD is Massachusetts, followed by Utah, Illinois, Oklahoma and Nebraska following suit.
