Industry Dynamics:

Medical Marijuana Market : Growth Drivers

  • Increased use of cannabis for a variety of medical conditions will help to drive revenue growth.

The marijuana plant was utilized for medical purposes for millennia until it became legal in the early 1900s. The plant's medicinal advantages are expected to raise product demand, resulting in increased market growth. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a nonpsychoactive chemical found in the cannabis plant. CBD is thought to have a variety of medicinal properties. Epidiolex, for example, is a CBD oil extract that is now being tested for epilepsy. Furthermore, nabiximols is a plant extract that has been licensed in Europe for the therapy of spasticity, overactive bladder, multiple sclerosis, neuropathic pain, and other illnesses. According to the latest survey, the most prevalent reasons people use medicinal marijuana are for pain relief, anxiety, depression, muscular stiffness, and a few other ailments. As a result, the expanding number of research studies to uncover additional medicinal uses, together with the increasing number of advantages connected with medical marijuana, will significantly boost the global medical marijuana market growth.

Medical Marijuana Market : Restraints

  • Side effects allied with the consumption of marijuana can limit the market growth.

Despite the growing use of authorized medical marijuana to treat a variety of ailments, the negative side effects linked with marijuana consumption may limit the market growth.

Global Medical Marijuana Market : Opportunities

  • Increasing awareness regarding the medical importance of marijuana is likely to offer better growth opportunities for market expansion.

The increased understanding of the advantages of medicinal marijuana among medical professionals, healthcare sector experts, and patients has spurred regulatory bodies to consider and allow medical marijuana.

It's also been licensed for medical use in a number of places around the United States. Medical marijuana has been the topic of intense research and debate for decades. The US Food and Drug Administration has authorized many drugs including marijuana-based formulations in healthcare because of their demonstrated medicinal advantages.

Global Medical Marijuana Market : Challenges

  • A limited number of suppliers and distributors around the emerging market pose a major challenge to the market expansion.

Medical marijuana or drugs based on marijuana are largely concentrated in North America and Europe. This is due to the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes, increased awareness among the consumers, high spending power, and well-developed infrastructure for the cultivation and testing of marijuana herbs. However, the situation differs in Asia Pacific where many countries still oppose the use of marijuana and its legalization. This is directly affecting its sale in the region. Also, low awareness and high prices of these drugs make them unsuitable for a low-income population which is why distributors and suppliers in such regions are limited.

Global Medical Marijuana Market : Segmentation
