    Super interested and cued up.The entire supplement industry is starting to shift and personally a bit obsessed with the possibilities of liposomes as a delivery method and of course CBD where the growth numbers are simply astounding. Not to mention that that process and that ingredient just work well together and more importantly on me!

        Big fan and student of nutrigenomics (… ) but to date as much as I like you believe this is a game changer, haven’t experienced it yet in how I buy my supplements.Liposomes which I also am a believer in are also growing slowly and becoming commoditized as they grow. Really small and a guess under $100m/y.The off the record numbers of CBD though–Damn–over $600M this past year if that is correct. And also must say a great ingredient for me personally.Super interesting.Someone should build a biz targeting the baby boomers for this!
