Market Trends

Increased demand for marijuana as a pain reliever in disorders including cancer, AIDS, seizures, and other ailments, as well as an increase in research into the therapeutic properties of marijuana are largely responsible for this market’s sizeable position. But the recreational application category is predicted to increase rapidly over the projection period. This increase is mostly due to the rise in the number of people who use marijuana now that it has been legalised, as well as the rising popularity of marijuana use as an alcohol substitute.
