Cannabis use disorder treatment Market is foreseen to rise to US$ 1.65 billion in from 2023

According to a recent report published by Future Market Insights, demand for cannabis use disorder treatment is poised to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2023 to 2033. By the end of the aforementioned period of assessment, a valuation worth US$ 2.66 billion is anticipated. Today’s global cannabis market is measured in billions of dollars, which is a direct result of the widespread legalization efforts, combined with a significant increase in social acceptance. However, the adverse effects associated with cannabis consumption cannot be ignored.

During the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, for instance, dependence has increased to the tune of 50%. This is significant, given that 19.3 million adults suffered from substance use disorders in 2019. As per the World Health Organization (W.H.O), approximately 147 million people, or 2.5% of the global population consume marijuana.

As per a UN Office on Drugs and Crime report, around 284 million people aged 15-64 used drugs worldwide in 2020, a 26% increase over the previous decade. Young people are using more drugs, with use levels today in many countries higher than with the previous generation. Globally, the report estimates that 11.2 million people worldwide were injecting drugs. Around half of this number were living with hepatitis C, 1.4 million were living with HIV, and 1.2 million were living with both.

To counter this, healthcare practitioners are adopting a slew of strategies which involve introducing virtual applications helping addicts quit their dependence on cannabis, or collaborating with governments to legalize recreational consumption. In addition, numerous clinical studies are underway to develop anti-dependence drugs, although the results at present appear quite limited.
