Scientists around the world have been studying the effects of CBD on these serious health problems and the laws have changed over the last few years.  Additionally, the 76.4 million baby boomers plus other age groups are living longer and are highly motivated to find treatments that don’t have such significant & scary side effects, as regular pharmaceuticals do (and CBD has very few, if any side effects). People are finding that CBD is working, sometimes better than standard pharmaceutical alternatives, which makes it very appealing. As a result, CBD use & recommendations have skyrocketed. 


The Knowledge Gap - People are interested, but are confused about CBD. 

Despite the rapidly growing interest in the effects of CBD, many people are concerned because of its association with cannabis. The CBD used to treat these problems, however, is derived from Hemp, the version of Cannabis that has less than .3% THC and has no psychoactive effects. Adding to the confusion, there are many different methods of CBD use, such as topicals, edibles, tinctures, vapes, suppositories, pills and more every day. As a result, there is a growing need for CBD Coaches to help clients sort out the amazing array of opportunities and products, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and others trying to sell their CBD products.   


What is a CBD Coach and what do they do? 


A Certified CBD Coach is a person that is fully educated in the uses and effects of CBD, that can advise and guide people to properly acquire and use it (CBD is classified as a supplement). CBD Coaches help clients optimize the use of CBD to improve their health and quality of life.  They educate clients about CBD, the different methods of using CBD, choosing the right products (from a quality perspective), taking the correct dosages, as well as the many other aspects of acquiring and using CBD. Anyone can become a CBD Coach but CBD Training is especially useful for people that already work with clients such as Health Coaches, Personal Trainers, Nutritionists, Physicians, Bodyworkers, Natural Healers, Life Coaches and many others.  Additionally, many healthcare providers are also seeking training such as nurses, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, chiropractors and doctors.



Business opportunity: Introduction


The legalization of and the research surrounding CBD has opened up a very large industry opportunity, allowing participants to get started on the “ground floor”, and nurturing many different types of businesses including hemp growers, processors, distributors, packagers, marketers, advisors, industry consultants, coaches, doctors and many others that will benefit from this blossoming industry. CBD will create new businesses and become part of existing ones as an add-on service and opportunity to make money and is optimal for anyone that interacts with people and is looking for a way to a) make money and b) to have a business in which they can help people. 


Why is CBD growing now?


The coaching and natural remedy industries are experiencing significant growth. “Coaching is the second-fastest growing profession in the world, rivaled only by information technology.”[5]


The explosion in the early growth of CBD may be attributed to the growth of the natural products industries, and by the fact that people want to get away from pharmaceuticals and use more natural remedies with less side effects.  People are reacting to the influx of pharmaceutical advertising that lists truly terrifying side effects and as a result, people are losing confidence in the pharmaceutical industry as a whole. 


The Complementary & Alternative Medicine Market is expected to generate a revenue of  $196.87 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Factors such as the increase in adoption of alternative medicine by people, combined with the government initiatives of a number of key countries to enhance reach, is expected to help in expansion revenue generation avenues.[6]


So how can a CBD Coach build a profitable business? 

Depending on the type of business the CBD Coach is already in, they may be able to offer the coaching services to their existing clients to increase the amount that can be earned per client.  If a coach doesn't have an existing business, that’s ok too - a CBD coaching business can start from the ground up and find clients that have specific ailments or needs - and build their business around that instead. 


The first step in building a profitable CBD coaching business is to locate a company which offers a comprehensive training program that will provide you and your staff with the in-depth training that you’ll need, as well as the ongoing support to receive updates about the industry, potential client referrals, changing legislation, ongoing research and discoveries, and more. One such company that offers comprehensive training and support is “CBD Training Academy”.

How much can a coach make?

Coaches charge different rates depending upon their experience, location, duration of consultation and other factors.  Rates have been ranging from $50 for a 30-minute consultation to over $300 for a one-hour in-person coaching session.
