According to the Australia legal cannabis market analysis, Australia has been a major proponent of cannabis legalisation when compared to other Asia Pacific nations. Adults over the age of 18, for example, were permitted to grow two marijuana plants and possess up to 50 grammes of dried marijuana after cannabis was legalised in Canberra. Many companies are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), have applied for cultivation permits, and are being bought or financed by powerful people.

The COVID-19 pandemic severely hampered all trade, including product import and export. Although recreational use of legal cannabis in Australia increased sharply in a country that produces the drug, sales have since recovered as trade restrictions have been relaxed. The legal cannabis industry in Australia is expected to grow significantly if cannabis products are made available for OTC sales via a variety of distribution channels.

The marijuana segment of Australia’s legal cannabis market is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. As a result of the legalisation of medical marijuana and its ban in the country, people are turning to legally obtaining marijuana products for medical purposes. As a result, the illicit market is expected to plummet significantly. Legalizing cannabis is expected to boost the legal cannabis industry in Australia as well as government revenue through taxes.

The laws governing the use of marijuana and hemp for medical purposes in Australia are strictly regulated and are constantly changing, impacting the outlook for the Australia legal cannabis market. Legalization was supported by 41.0% of the population in July 2020, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

In September 2019, Canberra, the nation’s capital, became the first city to legalise recreational marijuana use and personal marijuana cultivation. However, recreational marijuana possession is still illegal on a federal level across the country. The government enacted new cannabis laws, allowing residents of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) to purchase and cultivate marijuana for recreational purposes.
