Executive Summary

New Report Released: - Global Medical Marijuana Market 2018-2022

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global medical marijuana market: Aurora Cannabis, GW Pharmaceuticals, mCig, Medical Marijuana, and United Cannabis.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is emergence of luxury cannabis products. Since the consumption of cannabis through smoking can be harmful, many vendors selling luxury cannabis products that make controlled consumption of cannabis beneficial to the users have emerged in the market.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing use of cannabis for medical purposes. Cannabis used for medicinal purposes is referred to as medical marijuana or medical cannabis. This term refers to utilizing the whole, unprocessed cannabis plant or its extracts to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions. It can also be obtained through synthetic derivatives of cannabis. Medical cannabis contains a variety of compounds that are collectively referred to as cannabinoids.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of cannabis testing products. Although vendors in the cannabis testing market such as Agilent Technologies, Merck, Perkin Elmer, Shimadzu Corporation, and Thermo Fisher Scientific offer high-quality analytical products, they are all high-priced and thus, pose a challenge for cannabis testing laboratories. Medium and small-scale testing laboratories are cramped for budgets required for testing equipment.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
