The medical application of cannabis spans various conditions, including anxiety, gastrointestinal disorders, seizures, and epilepsy. The expansion of cannabis dispensaries worldwide is facilitating broader access to these products, promising a bright future for the market. Despite the recognized medical benefits, challenges such as manufacturing inefficiencies and poor-quality control have hindered output. However, advancements in manufacturing procedures and enhanced quality standards in the pharmaceutical industry are paving the way for more consistent products.

The CBD-dominant segment is anticipated to capture the second-largest share in the cannabis market during the forecast period. High demand and progressive policy reforms are driving the industry’s growth. As global stress levels rise, consumers are increasingly prioritizing self-care and mental wellness, aligning perfectly with the appeal of CBD products. The CBD market is flourishing, with increased availability in edibles, skincare, and expanding online distribution channels contributing to its positive trajectory.

In South America, the demand for medical cannabis is propelled by the increasing legalization across various countries. Uruguay and Colombia initiated the trend, followed by Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and others. While personal cultivation for recreational use is permitted in many countries, commercial sales are restricted, with Uruguay being the exception. South America’s cannabis market benefits from favorable legislation, local companies obtaining EU-Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification, and advantageous factors like a favorable climate and low-cost labor and construction.
