Medical marijuana has been studied and increasingly consumed for treatment of different conditions including chronic pain, nausea, anorexia, muscle spasms and seizures among others. Several tetrahydrocannabinols- (THC) and cannabidiol- (CBD) based medications are approved for lowering the symptoms of pain as well as nausea. Medical cannabis is also prescribed for patients exhibiting a loss of appetite as symptoms of AIDS. Medical marijuana has also been prescribed to reduce the intensity of several symptoms observed over the treatment of Alzheimer and Crohn’s disease. Conclusively, as the prevalence of illnesses/conditions rises, the demand for medical marijuana is expected to increase in tandem with it.

The nausea segment is estimated to register a 18.4% growth rate till 2027 owing to the increasing prevalence of cancer and patients reporting similar symptoms. The segment is anticipated to significantly contribute to the market progression throughout the forecast period. Additionally, nauseatic conditions are noted for many patients undergoing chemotherapy, as a treatment of cancer. Several patients are also noted to report cancer related pain at different stages of treatment.

The topical route of administration is predicted to reach USD 5 billion by 2027. Topicals are lotions or creams directly applied to the skin for the treatment or relief of an injury. These are largely gaining prominence as replacing opioids for injury related pain management. As opioids are noted for their several side effects, medical cannabis has gained popularity due to self-administration, non-invasive, while also exhibiting limited side effects. Gradually, the segment is poised to gain prominence as increasing number of manufacturers venture in this marketplace.

The dispensaries segment dominated more than 58.4% of the market share in 2020. As the stringent regulatory environment exists around medical marijuana, its sales and consumption are highly monitored by the regulatory authorities to avoid any abuse or instances leading to addiction. It is relatively easier for the consumers as well as suppliers to engage in a traditional brick and mortar store model while under a regional medical marijuana program.
