The medical marijuana industry

In some states the number of medical marijuana dispensaries in the U.S. is expected to increase in coming years to meet the demand for medical marijuana. Currently, California and Michigan have the largest number of medical marijuana patients in the United States. Meanwhile, Colorado and Ohio have the largest number of medical marijuana dispensaries among all U.S. states.

The cannabidiol industry

There are several cannabis-based products that comprise the total marijuana industry in the U.S. Recreational marijuana and hemp comprise the non-medical marijuana industry. Within the medical marijuana industry cannabidiol (CBD) is particularly interesting because it has huge medical potential without the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). According to recent data, the CBD pharmaceutical industry in the U.S. is expected to grow dramatically in the coming years. Accordingly, regular non-medical adult use of CBD is also expected to increase in coming years.
