Cannabinoid Biosynthesis Segmentation

Type (CBD, CBG, THC)

The global cannabinoid biosynthesis market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into CBD, CBG, THC, and others. Out of the four segments, the CBD segment is estimated to gain the largest market share over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing uses of CBD (cannabis-based products) in various medical explanations. For instance, CBD oil is highly used in the relief from pain, breaking opioid addiction, treating nervous disease, and others. The misuse, abuse, and use of opioids beyond of prescribed medical purposes can result in opioid dependence and other health issues. According to the World Health Organization, about 0.5 million deaths worldwide are related to drug usage. Overdose is a factor in more than 30% of these fatalities, which are connected to opioids in more than 70% of cases. On the other hand, the legalization of CBD is expected to boost segment growth. Despite certain state laws still prohibiting them, hemp-derived CBD products are rich in vitamins A, C, E, and beta carotene, thus they are now permitted on the federal level.

Application (Anxiety, Pain Management, Nausea Treatment, Appetite Stimulation)

The global cannabinoid biosynthesis market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into anxiety and pain management, nausea treatment, and appetite stimulation. Amongst these three segments, the anxiety and pain management segment is expected to garner a significant share.  The segment growth is expected on the account of higher uses of cannabinoids for treating anxiety and depression. THC seems to make people feel less anxious at smaller doses and more anxious at higher levels. In addition, CBD appears to reduce anxiety at all tested levels. Around 34% of medicinal marijuana users report using the drug for depression and nearly 50% report using it for anxiety. Furthermore, a higher count of people suffering from depression and anxiety is expected to boost segment growth. As per the statistics of the World Health Organization, 3.8% of the world's population suffers from depression, with 5.0% of adults and 5.7% of persons over 60 years of age affected by depression. Moreover, nearly 280 million individuals in the world suffer from depression.
