Key Companies - Medicinal Cannabis Industry

Growing R&D initiatives by leading market players for creating global medical pharmaceuticals are likely to boost market expansion during the forecast period. Increased approvals for medical cannabis products, as well as increased research and development initiatives by major competitors in the medicinal cannabis market, are projected to drive market expansion. The legalisation of medical cannabis is predicted to increase as solid proof of its safety and usefulness is achieved via significant study. Several funding agencies and stakeholders in both the public and private sectors are concerned about the harmful effects/side effects and legality of different medical cannabis medications. Adverse effects of medical cannabis, such as cognitive impairment, are likely to stymie the worldwide medicinal cannabis market's expansion. Furthermore, there are various commercial challenges associated with medicinal cannabis. The fundamental constraint of the medicinal cannabis business is the lack of legalisation in the majority of nations.

According to Coherent Market Insights, the global Medicinal Cannabis Market is estimated at US$ 10,180.17 million in 2022 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 24.4% over the forecast period (2022 – 2030).
