Comments · 83 Views

Medical Cannabis Market report also sheds light on the supply chains and the changes in the trends of the upstream raw materials and downstream distributors.

The global market for medical cannabis reached a value of USD 10.73 billion in 2022 and is projected to exhibit a revenue Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.6% throughout the forecast period. The primary driving factors behind the growth in market revenue include the increasing demand for medical applications and the progressive legalization of cannabis. Medical marijuana is derived from the cannabis plant and its compounds are used to treat various illnesses or conditions. Although it shares similarities with recreational marijuana, medical marijuana is specifically employed for therapeutic purposes. The cannabis plant contains over 100 different cannabinoids, each exerting distinct effects on the human body. The two major compounds with medical applications are delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD).

Medical cannabis has proven beneficial in addressing diverse conditions such as Alzheimer’s, loss of appetite, and cancer. This pivotal role in treating ailments is a driving factor behind the market's revenue surge. When parents attest to the effectiveness of a particular medical marijuana variant in managing seizures among children, it garners significant attention. An instance of this is Peridiole, a CBD-based medication recently sanctioned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating severe or hard-to-treat seizures. Some individuals experienced marked reductions in seizures after its usage.

The growing acceptance of cannabis legalization in various regions is a catalyst for market expansion. Numerous countries' governments and federal entities have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, aiming to curtail prescription drug abuse. Medical marijuana users generally report improved well-being due to its fewer adverse effects compared to traditional painkillers. Conventional opioid medications like morphine and Oxycodone carry the risk of dependence and abuse-related hazards. The key to avoiding overdose or fatalities with prescription medications lies in adherence to prescribed dosages. In contrast, medicinal cannabis carries minimal overdose risks, making it a secure alternative to prescription drugs. Health authorities have contemplated reducing conventional analgesics due to the associated opioid risks. The favorable risk-to-benefit ratio of medical cannabis positions it as a sensible choice, anticipated to fuel market revenue growth.

Furthermore, numerous countries have proactively advanced cannabis-related initiatives, propelling market expansion. For instance, by February 3, 2022, 37 states, three territories, and the District of Columbia in the United States had permitted medical cannabis use. Similarly, in November 2020, Mississippi voters approved medical cannabis usage through a ballot initiative, although the state supreme court overturned it on May 14, 2021. Additionally, on February 2, 2022, new legislation was passed and subsequently signed by the governor, expected to bolster market revenue growth.
