  • Increased use of cannabis in medicines

Medicinal cannabis is derived from cannabis plants and can be used to treat symptoms of certain medical conditions, and the side effects of some treatments. The most common form of medicinal use of cannabis is pain management. There has been gradual acceptance and use of medicinal cannabis with the growing number of countries that have legalized the use of cannabis for various indications. Medical cannabis has been approved for use by the FDA for three indications which are rare and severe forms of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome, and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and also to treat the spasticity in Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Medical marijuana uses the marijuana plant or chemicals in it to treat diseases or conditions apart from the approved drugs, there is an increased interest in two cannabinoids which are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol. Tetrahydrocannabinol is shown to improve appetite, minimize fatigue, and manage muscle function issues while cannabidiol is effective for managing epileptic seizures, curing psychiatric illness, and reducing inflammation.

  • Legalization of Cannabis

The use and acceptance of medicinal cannabis continue to evolve, as the growing number of states are permitting the use of specific medical indications. Many countries have legalized marijuana for either medicinal or recreational purposes while some other countries with restricted use. In recent years, a growing number of states in the U.S. have legalized the drug for medical or recreational purposes. With the widespread legalization of cannabis, many companies are also becoming proactive and are taking initiatives for the complete legalization of cannabis.

Hence, the legalization of cannabis is expected to drive market growth.

Medicinal cannabis comes in many different forms including capsules, chewable gum, creams, crystals, flower, lozenges, oil, and oro-mucosal sprays. High growth in the demand for cannabis with legalization has increased the need to come up with better product strains and delivery systems. This has led many companies to conduct R&D activities to check the genetic improvement strategies for cannabis. The FDA’s Cannabis Product Committee (CPC) develops and implements cross-Agency strategies and policies for the regulation of cannabis products. The novel products that are developed and on the rise are hemp protein powders, energy bars, hemp milk, hemp flour, and hemp tea, which are expected to create opportunities for market growth.

  • Increased adoption of cannabis for recreational purpose

Legal recreational marijuana can end the costly enforcement of marijuana laws and debilitate the illegal marijuana market.

Hence, the increasing adoption of cannabis for recreational purposes is expected to create opportunities for manufacturers in the market.
