North America is the highest category spender by region, driving the demand for the Medical Cannabis industry.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Cannabis, commonly referred to as marijuana, is a psychoactive substance produced from the cannabis plant. Medical cannabis is a herbal drug derived from Cannabis plants used to treat specific symptoms or diseases like cancer, chronic pain, or mental disorders. The two key cannabinoids obtained from this plant that provide medical advantages are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). It can be eaten, consumed as an extract, smoked, or vaporised. The Medical Cannabis industry report comprises segments by Species (Indica, Sativa, Hybrid), Derivative (Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)), Route of Administration (Oral Solutions and Capsules, Smoking, Vaporisers, Topicals, Others), Application (Cancer, Arthritis, Migraine, Epilepsy, Others), End-Use (Pharmaceutical Industry, Research and Development Centre, Others) and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America).

North American Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

North America holds the largest share in the industry as the region's market is the most developed. Legalisation initiatives for the substance for medical and recreational uses are aiding the market growth. Beginning of January 2020, 33 states in the United States and Washington, DC had legalised marijuana for medicinal use, furthering the industry. Also, Canada's Increased legalisation and customer willingness to spend more on legal items are propelling the business forward.

The increasing legalisation of marijuana is driving the industry for medicinal purposes and potential users' growing acceptability of the drug. The rising number of R&D projects, clinical studies, and product commercialisation will contribute to the industry's growth. In addition, the growing number of geriatrics, who are more prone to chronic illnesses and are more likely to suffer from pain due to ailments like rheumatoid arthritis, is also fueling the industry's expansion. Other factors such as rising disposable income and growing customer awareness of the product are further bolstering the market.

However, the market's complex regulatory framework and societal stigma associated with cannabis are factors that are expected to hinder the market's expansion.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Medical Cannabis industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global Medical Cannabis regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Because the dosage of cannabinoids varies and many ways to prepare cannabis for consumption, it's impossible to anticipate the pharmacological response. Users believe that when components are inhaled via aerosol rather than smoke, fewer harmful chemicals are ingested, so cannabis vaporisers have grown in popularity. Cannabinoid medications come in tablet form (dronabinol and nabilone) and liquid extracts in an oromucosal spray (nabiximols). Pills, lozenges, tinctures, dermal patches, oral or dermal sprays, edibles, and vaporising or smoking dried buds are all options for medical cannabis administration. In some countries, synthetic cannabinoids like dronabinol and nabilone are available on prescription.

Use of the Product for Treating a Wide Range of Medical Ailments, Further Driving the Procurement of Medical Cannabis

The industry is being propelled by the consumer awareness of the health benefits of cannabis and its expanding medical applications, such as the treatment of a wide range of diseases and symptoms, such as cancer, chronic pain, depression, arthritis, diabetes, glaucoma, migraines, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer's, post-traumatic stress disorder, Parkinson's, and Tourette's, are driving the growth of the medical cannabis industry. Also, with cancer patients who have used medical cannabis attesting to the product's importance in improving their quality of life by alleviating pain and chemotherapy side effects like nausea, the market is likely to witness a positive impact.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
