All medical cannabis companies are currently operating under licenses provided by the state departments of the Ministry of AYUSH. All edible cannabis products under AYUSH require a prescription, while topical and cosmetic products can be purchased over the counter. However, despite the Indian government’s open acceptance of cannabis for medicinal use, there are still significant barriers to selling cannabis and/or prescription-based medical cannabis products in India, which is a major reason for the industry’s current slow growth. There could be a reason.

In the coming year, we can expect to see a lot of cannabis focused clinics, cafes, spas and wellness centers popping up across India. We are also going to see institutional money being invested in big cannabis brands, cannabis R&D firms and marketplaces in 2023, which is generating worldwide interest in the Indian medical cannabis space. We may also see some international entrants either opening their regional offices or acquiring budding startups.

Moreover, in the coming years, we will start seeing cannabis-infused cosmetic products and FMCG goods being sold online as well as in stores. While 2023 could prove to be the biggest year ever for the medical cannabis space in India, it will pale in comparison to what lies ahead.
