North America to Lead Due to Rapid Legalization of Cannabis for Medical Purposes
Geographically, the cannabis market is divided on the bases of Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, North America, and Asia Pacific. Out of these regions, in North America, the U.S. medical laws consider cannabis as a form of medicine or therapy for numerous medical conditions, such as epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, anorexia, chronic pain, cancer, and arthritis.
The legalization of cannabis first began in the U.S. in 2012 with Washington and Colorado becoming the first two states to approve its recreational usage. Canada has recently started playing a leading role in cannabis legalization and is emerging as a flag-bearer country. In July 2019, Columbia has legalized recreational utilization of cannabis.
The recreational usage of cannabis will be positively impacted by the subsequent price parity of cannabis bud as well as its commoditization in the legal and illegal market. Moreover, increasing mainstreaming and availability of raw materials will ensure price parity. It would also aid in smoothening the transformation of cannabis flower from the illegal market to legal business.
The taxes would be vital in channelizing the advancements in the legal market. A rise in the demand for cannabis from Canada, U.S., and the European countries is expected to help all the South American cannabis producers to upscale their production. It would reduce the pricing pressure on cannabis bud due to increasing imports both in wholesale and retail channels.
