Expert Quote on the North America Cannabis Market

“Recreational cannabis contributed to highest market share of the North America cannabis market in 2018 and is also expected to grow at higher CAGR as compared to that of medical cannabis. Stringent regulation controlling the production and distribution of medical cannabis and the risk of negative side effects associated with the medical use of cannabis acted as major restraints limiting the growth of the medical cannabis market in North America. In contrast, upsurge in demand for recreational cannabis aided in the growth of the recreational cannabis market in both the U.S. and Canada.”
