Medical Marijuana Market key takeaways

Medical marijuana refers to the cannabis sativa or cannabis indica plant, which is widely applied for medical purposes to treat or relieve symptoms of illnesses and ailments. Until the early 1900s, the marijuana plant was utilized medically for centuries all over the world. However, manufacturers are working on developing new products to be used by a larger audience worldwide. The legalization of medical marijuana in developed nations is predicted to increase demand for the marijuana-based drug as an alternative to traditional therapy.

As per the New York's "New Medical Marijuana Law", a patient who has identification card enrolled with the New York State Department of Health along with healthcare practitioner approval is qualified to use medical marijuana for pain management. Furthermore, multiple dispensary chains are involved in the transportation of medical marijuana between states in the US in order to ensure continuous availability in the marketplace, resulting in an adequate supply of medical marijuana across geographies. The French Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products declared in October 2020 that a small medical marijuana trial would be conducted in 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the market as there is no clear evidence of the impact of marijuana on coronavirus infected patients. The ability of marijuana to diminish the virus's ability to cause inflammation was investigated at Augusta University in Georgia, although the notion has yet to be proven in human sources.
