According to the report, hemp flower, commonly known as ‘bud,’ accounts for the majority of the global cannabis market share in terms of product type. On the other hand, concentrates based out of marijuana are leading the global market in terms of product type. The higher penetration and better availability of these products boost the market in developed nations, leading to a significant consumer base.
“Increasing Application of Medicinal Cannabis to Promote Legal Marijuana Market Growth”
The rising awareness about the medicinal properties of marijuana is a key factor driving the global cannabis market. Marijuana can help to cure disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, anorexia, chronic pain, arthritis, and other medical conditions. Besides this, the rising legalization of marijuana in several countries of the world is boosting the market globally.
However, the growth trajectory of the marijuana market could be bumpy on account of the complex regulatory structure observed in several countries and restrictions on cannabis use in many parts of the world. In addition to this, the declining price of marijuana in the market as the products are getting increasingly commoditized, may also cause hindrance to the market growth in the forecast period.
Nevertheless, many companies operating in the hemp market are investing increasingly in the research and development of novel products for delivery solutions. This is anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities for the global Legal Marijuana Market in the coming years.

“North America Market to Remain Dominant on Account of Legalization of Medical Marijuana”
Geographically, the global cannabis market is anticipated to be dominated by North America owing to the government-supported medical marijuana laws imposed in the U.S. In 2012, Washington and Colorado in the U.S. were the first two cities to legalize the use of cannabis for recreational purpose. As of July 2019, about eleven states and District of Columbia in the United States have legalized the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
On the other hand, Canada is also playing a major role in the booming market of marijuana as it recently emerged as a flag-bearer country in marijuana legalization for recreational purposes. The fact that marijuana can help treat medical conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, post-trauma conditions, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, anorexia, and others are anticipated to help the cannabis market in North America in the coming years.
