Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in cannabis and has been the subject of much research due to its many and varied medical applications and there are a number of health benefits of CBD oil. But it’s not only its therapeutic attributes that have sparked such widespread interest in CBD in recent years.

Nigerian Fashion Trends
Nigeria Fashion Trends. These days the value of designs we make is not quantified only by the cost of the fabric but by the cost of the trimmings stone or embellishments used to decorate your fabric.
The fabric is practically just a carrier of the designs elements you decide to use.
Many fully made dresses are made with fabric worth just 4k but the design on it can go as high as 300k or more if that’s what you want.
its the new trend in fashion. Not the use of fabric but the use of accessories. To up your fashion game make sure you are dishing out designs that shows off your creative with accessories.
