The trend of food incorporated with cannabis is increasing the demand for cannabinoid, which is surging the demand for industrial hemp. Moreover, the rising awareness regarding the health benefits of cannabinoid is increasing the demand for cannabinoid-infused food products, hence augmenting the legal cannabis market value.

As the stigma related to the consumption of cannabis is decreasing, the demand for legal cannabis is surging, which is anticipated to aid the industry growth in the upcoming years.

 

Industry Outlook

Canada established a precedent for other countries in 2018 by being the first country within the G7 to completely legalize cannabis for recreational use. Five years ago, Uruguay, nine US states, and the nation's capital, Washington, allowed the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. However, Canada will be the first G7 nation to follow suit.

 

As per legal cannabis industry analysis, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 1.8 million individuals worldwide suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS).

The usefulness of medicinal cannabis is increasingly being shown in clinical testing, adding to its credibility as a potential replacement for traditional pharmaceuticals.
