Incorporating New Frontier Data’s extensive analysis on the cannabis consumer, the report delivers an in-depth and comprehensive assessment of medical cannabis preferences and behaviors, consumer purchasing and consumption habits, and the potential impact on the pharmaceutical industry.

“The pharmaceutical sectors across Europe, Asia and North America are making strides into the recognition and application of cannabis relative to more traditional medicine, making this a critical time to best understand what the patient needs and wants, not to mention why,” noted New Frontier Data Founder and Executive Chair, Giadha A. DeCarcer. “Given the current opioid crisis in the United States and beyond, we expect increased, if not improved, collaboration and communication between the medical community and cannabis research, with an emphasis on efficacy optimization and better medicinal alignment with patient behavior.”
