Global Legal Cannabis Market to Grow at a CAGR of 23% in the Forecast Period, Aided by the Growing Demand for Cannabinoid-Infused Food Products

Global Legal Cannabis Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Legal Cannabis Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the global legal cannabis industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23% in the forecast period of 2024-2032, driven by the rising demand for cannabinoid-infused food products.

Consumer demand for cannabis with consistent dosing and lab-tested chemicals is expanding at a fast pace as a result of the penetration of numerous start-ups. Innovative and premium packaging offered by several brands is propelling the appeal for cannabis-based products among millennial and gen-Z consumers, invigorating the market growth. The increasing legalisation of cannabis in countries like the United States, Spain, and Canada is fuelling the industry's growth. For instance, recreational cannabis became legal in New York in April 2021, boosting the industry growth significantly. The growing popularity of cannabis-infused foods is driving up the demand for cannabinoids, which is driving up demand for industrial hemp. Additionally, as people are becoming more aware of the health advantages of cannabinoids, the demand for cannabinoid-infused food products rises, augmenting the market growth. The rise of the cannabis market is aided by the creation of novel cannabis-based goods. The growing usage of cannabis for medical purposes is boosting the market growth. Due to the use of cutting-edge technology, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and big data in various treatments, the trend is projected to accelerate in the future years. This could lead to the personalisation of medical cannabis, allowing for the development of particular cancer and palliative care medications, which is expected to drive the industry's growth. The rising geriatric population need treatment for chronic diseases. With its rich medical properties and the increasing patient population, the governments of many countries are either decriminalising or approving its usage.
