Medical Marijuana Market Owing To the Increasing Demand for Marijuana-Based Medicines among End-Users as a Result of Economic Prices

The use of cannabis as a medicine has been a widely debated topic among the global audience. Though the unrestricted use of marijuana can have detrimental impacts on the immune and respiratory system, proponents of marijuana-derived medicines believe that synthesis of cannabis strain in non-lethal proportions can cure ailments such as arthritis, chronic and acute pain and loss of appetite, amongst others. It has been proved that the cannabis plant is infused with approximately 700 different types of chemicals. In this, the number of cannabinoids is around 100. The plant is capable of surviving in most regions of the world but prefers a warmer climate. The use of marijuana as a medicine has been tried out in England and France, and later in the U.S., in the early 19th century AD. Europe is a highly progressive when it comes to the use of marijuana as a medicine. The Netherlands, Poland, Norway, Germany, Italy, Greece, etc., have regulations that promote the use of medical marijuana. The lucrative european markets are targeted by leading cannabis growers in Canada, after serving the country’s domestic demands of over 1 million Kg. Canadian medical cannabis giant Aurora Cannabis, for example, has partnered with Danish tomato growers Alfred Pedersen & Son to produce more than 120,000 Kg of cannabis locally in the Nordic state. Furthermore, with the ongoing COVID-19 difficulties, the global medical marijuana market saw a surge in marijuana demand as the end-users are stocking up supplies to promote social distancing. The sales of medical marijuana in the U.S. increased by approximately 130% in March, compared to Jan 2020. Online sales have gone up by around 130% as well.
