North America Medical Cannabis Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • 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.

The legalization of marijuana in different parts of the world can be seen as an effort to increase the additional revenue, this way there will be a boost in the revenue without raising taxes. The legalization of cannabis will allow more consumption of it for medicinal or recreational purposes. Moreover, it will also boost the cannabis business, thus creating more demand for cannabis. Hence, the legalization of cannabis is expected to drive market growth.

Opportunities

  • Novel product development with increasing R&D activities

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

Legalizing recreational marijuana results in helpful regulation of a safe drug, without increasing potential negative consequences. The legalization of marijuana has various societal benefits as the rise in the economy without increasing taxes, creating thousands of job opportunities, stopping the racial differences in marijuana enforcement, and freeing up scarce police resources. Legal recreational marijuana can end the costly enforcement of marijuana laws and debilitate the illegal marijuana market.

Due to these benefits, marijuana has been legalized and is being increasingly adopted by people of different age groups. This creates a demand for good-quality marijuana for fun and relaxation. Hence, the increasing adoption of cannabis for recreational purposes is expected to create opportunities for manufacturers in the market.

Restraint/Challenge

  • High-cost purchasing and rush for premium quality

Medical cannabis devices can be expensive to manufacture and purchase, and the procedure cost can also be high due to the specialized equipment and training required. This can limit the accessibility of medical cannabis treatments for patients and healthcare facilities, particularly in lower-income regions. Additionally, the high cost of medical cannabis devices and procedures may deter some patients from choosing these treatments, especially if they have to pay out of pocket. Insurance coverage for medical cannabis treatments can also be limited, limiting their adoption.

As a result, the high cost of medical cannabis devices and procedures can be a significant barrier to market growth, especially in regions where cost is a major factor. However, as technology advances, the cost of these devices and procedures may decrease, making them more accessible to patients and healthcare facilities.

The increased intricacy of medical cannabis devices and the high cost of medical cannabis treatment are expected to restrain the market growth.

Recent Development

  • In May 2018, as per the Cannabis Act of the Government of Canada, the cannabis act will create a strict legal framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale, and possession of cannabis across Canada which is meant to keep cannabis out of the hands of youth and profits out of pockets of organized crime by fostering a robust legal and regulated industry.
