On the basis of application, the medical marijuana market is categorized into chronic pain, arthritis, migraine, cancer, and others. Among these, chronic pain is the largest application area of medical marijuana and is expected to continue leading the market during the coming years. This can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising awareness among patients and healthcare providers regarding the potential benefits of using marijuana for relieving chronic pain.

Globally, North America was the largest revenue generator in the medical marijuana market in 2017, because of high investments in research and development activities to investigate the potential medical applications of cannabinoids. Moreover, Canada and some states of the U.S. are planning to legalize the usage of marijuana for medical as well as recreational purposes. For instance, by October 2018, Canada plans to legalize the drug use by adults. As per the current medical regime associated with cannabis, patients are allowed to access cannabis under the authorization of their healthcare providers. Thus, government initiatives to spread awareness about the medical application of marijuana and legalize its usage are expected to contribute to the market growth in the near future.
