Medical cannabis use is driving industry revenues into the billions. Investments by pharmaceutical and Big Tobacco companies in the development of cannabis and CBD-based products and devices, along with healthcare-conscious consumers having access to these products, are spurring growth. Physicians, aware of increasingly widespread medical marijuana legalization, are interested in understanding the potential of these treatments. In the US states where cannabis is approved, the use of prescription drugs, including the use of opioids, has decreased.
"The use of medical marijuana is sparking keen interest not only with investors, but also doctors and patients. All but four states in the US have legalized either medical marijuana or CBD use. There are over 770 clinical trials underway studying the use of medical cannabis in various diseases and another more than 500 trials studying the use of CBD," noted Gilmore. "With all of these studies underway, it is interesting to note that states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use have seen a steady decrease in the number of recorded patient prescriptions. This is a trend that will be studied going forward as physicians learn more about the medical marijuana efficacy as it related to the diseases it is successfully treating."
