In this report, Technavio highlights the emergence of luxury cannabis products as one of the key emerging trends driving the global medical marijuana market:
Emergence of luxury cannabis products
As the consumption of cannabis through smoking can be harmful, several vendors have emerged in the market who offer luxury cannabis products that make controlled consumption of cannabis beneficial to the users. Luxury cannabis products can be defined as products, which contain therapeutic doses of cannabis in edible products. They can be consumed without experiencing the side effects of smoking cannabis.
“Cannabis is being added to edibles such as cookies, chocolates, muffins, brownies, teas, and chewing gums. The patients who are recommended specific dosages of cannabis by their physicians can consume these edibles. The trend of producing edible products with cannabis is expected to drive the growth of the market as the demand for medical cannabis consumption through modes other than smoking is increasing,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on health and wellness.
