The growing applications of cannabis in the medical field is an important driver for the cannabis products market. Cannabis is a drug that comes from Indian hemp plants such as Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica, with THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) being the main active chemical in it. Cannabis has several medical applications in conditions such as nausea and vomiting, glaucoma, epilepsy, asthma.
Hence, many countries have legalized the use of cannabis for medical applications despite it being a psychoactive drug. Medical applications of cannabis include treating cancer, chronic pain, depression, arthritis, diabetes, glaucoma, migraines, epilepsy, AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. According to Harvard Health, around 85% of Americans supported legalizing medical marijuana, and at least several million Americans were using it.
The presence of several legal norms related to the use and possession of cannabis is an important restraint on the cannabis products market. These norms include regulations of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as well as rules set up by the government of each state in the USA.
The FDA reviews all applications of cannabis products for their safety and effectiveness. Despite having laws allowing cannabis businesses, many states in the USA still do not allow such businesses. For instance, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose and San Diego have laws allowing cannabis businesses, but 80% of California’s nearly 500 municipalities do not allow retail marijuana businesses.
Solar cannabis cultivation is an emerging trend in the cannabis products market. As cannabis cultivation requires a large amount of energy for lighting, heating, air-conditioning, and dehumidification systems, cannabis products manufacturing companies are investing in solar cannabis cultivation.
This is mainly a result of legalizing cannabis products in various states of the USA, which is continuously increasing the consumption of energy and leading cannabis manufacturers to opt for solar cannabis cultivation. For instance, Aurora acquired 71 acres of land in Medicine Hat, Alberta, and installed a high-technology hybrid greenhouse cannabis production facility.
The government of California regulates the safety in manufacturing cannabis under the California Code of Regulations, Title 17 Division 1. It states that every manufacturer of cannabis product should obtain a valid license issued by state cannabis licensing agency.
To obtain an annual license for cannabis manufacturing, the manufacturer should submit the physical address of the manufacturing premises and a written security plan. The security plan should include the security measures to prevent access of unauthorized people into the manufacturing premises and prevention of loss or theft of cannabis and cannabis products. Hence, this is expected to maintain vigil on manufacturing of cannabis in the coming the years.
In May 2020, Aurora Cannabis Inc., a Canada-based cannabinoids company acquired Reliva, LLC for an undisclosed amount. Through this acquisition Aurora and Reliva will be able to build a market-leading international cannabinoid platform, and they will be able to offer stable revenue and enhanced profitability. Reliva, LLC is a US-based company and a pacesetter in delivering high-quality hemp-derived CBD products to consumers.
