Legal Marijuana Market by Type, and Application:

Marijuana, also known as cannabis, is a naturally occurring psychoactive drug extracted from the cannabis plant. Marijuana may be used for medical or recreational purposes. For medical purposes, it is used to reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy as well as treat chronic pain, muscle spasms, and others. Thorough research is being undertaken to determine its medical applications and benefits. With its wide use for recreational purposes, it accords for a huge market value. The cannabis industry has been constrained by regulatory restrictions for most of recent history. However, with recent trends and governments legalizing medical and adult use, the market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

Increase in legalization of marijuana in various countries is primarily driving the growth of the global legal marijuana market. In addition, acceptance of marijuana as a pharmaceutical product to treat several medical conditions, such as cancer, arthritis, stress, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological conditions is expected to drive the its demand in the near future. Moreover, surge in need for effective pain management remedies to treat rising cases of chronic pain among adults and geriatric population is anticipated to boost the market growth. However, social stigmatization of smoking and a few adverse effects of smoking cannabis, such as chronic cough, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and chronic bronchitis are the factors that hamper the market growth. In addition, implementation of stringent regulation regarding the marijuana product sale and cultivation in many countries limits the overall market growth. On the contrary, surge in hydroponically grown marijuana and ease in harvesting a superior quality marijuana are expected to offer remunerative opportunities for the legal marijuana market players.
