It is expected to reach global legal cannabis market size $ 91.5 billion by 2028 with a CAGR of 26.3% in the forecast period.

Due to recent legalization in several parts of the world, the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes is growing in importance. Medical cannabis is used to treat various chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, cancer, depression, anxiety, epilepsy, and other neurological diseases. Thus, a wide range of applications has led to increased product demand for the treatment of various chronic diseases.

Due to the slow acceptance of cannabis in various countries, some developed countries, such as Canada, Uruguay and certain states in the US have gone a step further and legalized the recreational use of cannabis. Since recreational cannabis is easily available in the market for a cheap price, the demand for cannabis has grown exponentially.

This is said to increase cannabis cultivation to meet growing demand. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed market growth due to the imposition of a lockdown that restricts consumers from visiting brick and mortar stores.

Based on the sources, the marijuana segment had the highest revenue share in 2020 and is expected to show the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. This is due to increased awareness of its medical benefits and easy availability.

For example, marijuana oil is used to treat cancer and nausea, and can also be used to improve the sleep cycle and relieve stress, pain, and anxiety. The decriminalization and legalization of medical marijuana in some countries has resulted in a significant decline in the black market.

In addition, the high potency of marijuana-derived CBD is one of the key factors behind the large portion of the segment. The use of cannabis for medicinal applications, because of its benefits in various treatment processes, has seen expansion with increasing support from the scientific community.

In recent years, numerous countries have legalized medical cannabis, but its prescription depends on patient demand and the doctor’s preference. The recreational use segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment over the forecast period.
