According to research by Grand View Research, the global legal cannabis market is estimated to reach USD 146.4 Billion by end of 2025. The increasing acceptance of cannabis products for various medical applications such as cancer, mental disorders, chronic pain and others, is projected to help increase revenue growth in the coming years. The research explains that the legal cannabis market is gaining traction worldwide due to high demand among consumers for both recreational and medical products. As a result, public and private investments for research and development of safer forms of ingesting cannabis such as tinctures, oils, vapes and other edibles are expected to positively impact market development.

Tracking consumer spending trends reveals the state of the cannabis industry by region. Tom Adams, Editor-in-Chief at Arcview Market Research and Principal Analyst at BDS Analytics explained that, “California gets the media attention and Canada gets the investment dollars as they allow adult use, but Germany’s move to make cannabis flower available for medical use in pharmacies was really the big news of 2017 from a worldwide perspective. The tables have turned in favor of legalization across the world and we predict that the trend will spread as research continues to support cannabis’ effectiveness as a medication.” Germany has positioned itself as the leader of the European market, while Italy is expected to be the second-ranked cannabis market on the continent with USD 1.2 Billion in sales by 2027.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (OTCQX:LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its disruptive delivery technology that promotes healthier ingestion methods, lower overall dosing and higher effectiveness of lipophilic active molecules. Lexaria Bioscience Corp. recently reported significant bioavailability results from its randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind European human clinical study that evaluated TurboCBDTM – a proprietary, DehydraTECH(TM) powered, cannabidiol (“CBD”) fortified hemp oil capsule developed by Lexaria. The degree and speed of CBD absorption into blood plasma and potential cardiovascular and cognitive performance enhancement in 12 healthy male volunteers were studied. These results corroborate and confirm earlier in vitro and in vivo studies that have evaluated Lexaria’s DehydraTECHTM technology and have consistently measured higher levels of drug delivery much more quickly than positive controls with matching CBD concentrations. Although this study evaluated absorption only of CBD and its metabolites, Lexaria believes nearly identical bioavailability enhancement results would be achieved if the cannabinoid studied was THC instead of CBD.
