In addition, rising number of research and development and clinical trial activities in the field globally is expected to contribute to revenue growth of the market going ahead.

Marijuana usage as a recreational use is banned in in various countries worldwide. As a result of long-fought legalization initiatives, several countries including Uruguay and Canada, and various states in the United States, already had legalized the cultivation, sale, and use of marijuana for medicinal and recreational uses. Increasing cannabis legalization could have a diverse range of effects on society and economy of countries where it is legal. Marijuana legalization enables the government to control production and sales on an application basis, ensuring that cannabis industry contributes to GDP of the country. Marijuana consumers now consider purchasing cannabis more frequently following legalization than before. Simultaneously, more customers are considering purchasing recreational marijuana more frequently. Additionally, recreational marijuana businesses' R&D activities are expected to increase as the number of countries which have legalized marijuana continue to rise, thereby, bolstering legal marijuana industry growth.
