Rapid growth in cannabis applications for various indications including pain, inflammation, sleep disorders, anorexia, epilepsy, schizophrenia, and multiple sclerosis is expected to drive the market growth. There is a shift from cannabis herbal preparations to prescription drugs. The demand for processed, quantified and packaged cannabis products is increasing dramatically. Additionally, the acceptance of cannabis products by consumers and regulatory authorities is increasing, which has a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Regulatory acceptance of cannabis products such as Sativex and Epidiolex improves patient and physician perspectives on cannabis, as these drugs are developed and regulated through a rigorous process.

The growing number of research and development activities and clinical trials to study the therapeutic benefits of cannabis will drive the market growth over the forecast period. For example, in September 2020, Tilray Inc. announced that its cannabis products showed promising results in reducing vomiting and nausea in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy. According to the study, a quarter of patients using medical cannabis did not experience nausea and vomiting. Such research studies are believed to increase the demand for cannabis in the pharmaceutical industry.

There is an increase in the number of physicians prescribing cannabis to their patients due to increasing clinical evidence, growing awareness, and growing number of patients seeking cannabis as a medical alternative. For example, according to a survey published in 2019, 22% of consumers were looking to replace prescription or over-the-counter drugs with CBD. Additionally, 30% were taking CBD in addition to the prescribed medication. Forty-seven percent replaced an over-the-counter medication with CBD, 36% with prescription opioids, 33% with prescription anti-anxiety drugs, and 22% with prescription sleeping pills. Thus, the increase in cannabis consumption will drive the global pharmaceutical cannabis market.

Cannabis regulatory approval is a major parameter supporting market growth. Governments and regulatory authorities are taking initiatives to legalize the use of cannabis for medical purposes. For example, in August 2020, a regulatory authority in Portugal, INFARMED IP, granted a license to Clever Leaves for the cultivation and import-export of medical cannabis. For example, in November 2018, GW Pharmaceuticals, plc launched EPIDIOLEX (CBD) oral solution for the treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. EPIDIOLEX was approved by the FDA in June 2018. It is the first prescription pharmaceutical formulation of plant-derived CBD and an antiepileptic drug.
