Medical Marijuana and the Opioid Crisis
Published: June 10, 2019 Content info: 15 Pages

Report Highlights:

Just in 2017, medical cannabis totaled $7.3 billion, up from $4.8 billion in 2016. This segment will likely achieve a 22.2% CAGR to reach nearly $19.8 billion at the producer level in 2022 and will account to more than 80% of the global market. Politics aside, one must remember that marijuana is still a drug and needs to be treated as such with its potential side effects. Even if cannabinoids-based drugs will not fully substitute opioid use, combination of medical marijuana use with reduced dose of opioid will help to curb the crisis.
