WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Nearly four in 10 Americans think Cannabidiol (CBD) oils should be legally available for adults as an over-the-counter purchase while another 21% think people should only be able to buy them with a doctor's prescription. Just 2% say they should not be available, while 36% are not familiar with the product.

Among those familiar with CBD oil, 61% think adults should be able to buy it over the counter and 33% say it should be available with a prescription while 4% say it shouldn't be available for purchase.

CBD is an oil extracted from the cannabis plant -- specifically the hemp form of cannabis, which has significantly lower THC content than the marijuana form. As such, CBD oil is purported to have various medical and therapeutic benefits without the hallucinogenic properties of marijuana. CBD-based products are now legal in most states, generally with restrictions such as needing to be sold through dispensaries or available only with a physicians' authorization.

CBD products are distinct from medical marijuana, although it should be noted that both products likely benefit from Americans' sympathy for the needs they fill. A recent Gallup poll found that the medical value of marijuana is one of the main reasons supporters of the broader legalization of marijuana give for their position.

Nearly two in three Americans indicate they have some familiarity with CBD oils, yet that includes only 14% who say they are very familiar, 33% are somewhat familiar and 17% not too familiar



Familiarity is fairly similar across societal groups, including by gender, party ID and most age categories. However, half of seniors vs. roughly two thirds of those under 65 know something about it.

Those who are familiar with CBD oils credit the substance with having health benefits, including 33% who say they have "a lot of health benefits" and 45% who say they have "some" benefits. Fewer than one in five say they only have a few (14%) or no (4%) benefits. Factoring in those not familiar with CBD, 21% of all Americans currently believe CBD has a lot of benefits and another 29% say it has some benefits.

Confidence in CBD is also much greater the more people know about it. Sixty-four percent of those who say they are very familiar with it think it has a lot of benefits, compared with 27% of those who are somewhat familiar and 21% of those not too familiar. Still, large majorities of all three groups think it has at least some benefits.

Notably, young adults who are familiar with CBD are much more likely than seniors who are familiar to say the product has a lot of benefits: 41% of those 18 to 29 vs. 24% of those 65 and older.

The CBD-oil arena is extremely active right now, including medical research into its benefits, state legislation governing its sale, federal legislation encouraging its production and corporate investment growing in the business. According to Forbes, retail sales for CBD products were between $600 million and $2 billion last year but are expected to grow to $16 billion by 2025.

Although medical research has a long way to go to investigate all of the claims made about CBD, half of Americans already believe it has at least some medical value, and that percentage is likely to grow as more become familiar with the product.

Each sample of national adults includes a minimum quota of 70% cellphone respondents and 30% landline respondents, with additional minimum quotas by time zone within region. Landline and cellular telephone numbers are selected using random-digit-dial methods.

Americans who favor legalizing marijuana are most likely to cite its medicinal benefits as an important reason for their support, while driver safety is the most important reason opponents are against it.

Of 21 personal behaviors and practices measured, Americans agree most widely that birth control is morally acceptable and that extramarital affairs are morally wrong.

Americans' support for legalizing marijuana continues to set new records, with 66% of U.S. adults now in favor of making the drug legal.

The answer is still far from understood, but Gallup's latest Global Emotions Report gives global thinkers an idea of who is living the best and worst lives.
