The global cannabis pharmaceuticals market size was valued at USD 107.25 million in 2020 and is projected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the rapidly progressing transformation of cannabis from herbal preparations to prescription drugs. Another important driver of the market is the increasing usage of cannabis-based medications for a variety of healthcare conditions including inflammation, chronic pain, epilepsy, sleep disorders, anorexia, schizophrenia, and symptoms of multiple sclerosis.

Cannabis Pharmaceuticals Market Key Takeaways

The emergence of Cannabis 3.0, which emphasizes the importance of value-based outcomes over perception-based outcomes present a key aspect of the market. This concept is related to a move away from smoking whole cannabis flower/bud and toward the consumption of processed, measured, and packaged cannabis products. Pharmaceutical products such as Sativex, Epidiolex, Nabilone, Dronabinol, and others in pipeline are likely to stimulate the medical cannabis market and also enhance physician and patient perceptions of the quantifiable benefits of cannabis-based drugs. These drugs are widely developed and regulated through a rigorous process of herbal preparation and clinical trials. In 2018, for example, about 400 active and completed CBD clinical trials were conducted. GW Pharmaceuticals had roughly 40 clinical trials filed with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), followed by Sanofi, which were around 38 active or finished trials as of June 2018.

According to Health Canada, in 2019, about 13,359 physicians in Canada wrote prescriptions for 2.1 grammes of the average amount of cannabis for therapeutic purposes each day. Furthermore, some businesses are concentrating their efforts on the creation of cannabis-based medicinal formulations, which is assisting the market expansion. For example, GW Pharmaceuticals released EPIDIOLEX, a cannabidiol (CBD)-based oral solution for treating seizures. Plant-derived CBD is used to make the company's prescription pharmaceutical formulations on the market. Despite the fact that Epidiolex does not contain psychoactive THC, its global legalization is a difficult process due to the existence of strict rules on cannabis-infused goods.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Rapidly progressing in the development of cannabis products for medical applications and herbal preparations to prescription drugs are expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Expanding number of clinical trials using cannabis' medicinal experiments for various health concerns is also boosting market expansion.
  • Increasing the number of authorizing physicians providing medical cannabis to patients as a result of increased clinical evidence as well as growing awareness of medical cannabis are expected to drive the market significantly.
  • Drug manufacturers are confronted with high operational expenses and logistical challenges. This is projected to hamper the market growth.
  • Existing regulatory challenges and restriction in the approval of cannabis pharmaceuticals products are major challenges restraining the market growth.
