Cannabis, once “sacred herb”, has lost its importance in society today. Being buried under a plethora of negative connotations, which initially formed on the basis of misinformation, has today not only disturbed its meaning in people’s minds, but has also created a set of errors in judgment.

The cannabis plant has been used recreationally, entheogens, and in fact, has also been a major contributor to Indian Ayurvedic medicines for centuries. Vedic literature had mentioned the medical and spiritual properties associated with cannabis decades ago. In India itself, cannabis has been used for over 2,000 years. Sushruta Samhita, which is an ancient medical treatise not only recommended, but also supported the use of the cannabis plant extract, called Vijaya / Bhanga in Ayurveda, to treat pain (spondylitis, dysmenorrhea), gastrointestinal disturbances, skin diseases and diarrhea.

Today, people have a negative connotation related to cannabis. It’s important for people to know that cannabis contains cannabinoids (THC, CBD to name a few) that activate CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of mammals. ECS is a biological system made up of endocannabinoids which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors (CBRs) and cannabinoid receptor proteins. They also help regulate neurotransmitters and the central nervous system, thus helping to relieve pain. It acts on cannabinoid receptors found in our brain, peripheral organs, and tissues such as the spleen, white blood cells, endocrine gland, and parts of the reproductive, gastrointestinal and urinary tract. This is why medical cannabis is part of the wellness industry on a global scale.

Cannabis has been a part of Indian culture for centuries today, but its importance, even then, was not fully appreciated. An international treaty – Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961 classified cannabis flower or resin as a Schedule IV narcotic, although the cannabis leaf was excluded from this definition, due to strong arguments and efforts put forward by the Indian delegation regarding its ubiquitous medical use in traditional Indian medicine. The Magnitude of Substance Abuse 2019 report (written by the National Drug Dependence Treatment Center and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences) reported that more than 30 million Indians used cannabis in various forms.

What is strange is how widely this culture has been used and yet underutilized in the health and wellness industry. Medicinal cannabis in creams can help relieve pain and inflammation. Unlike THC, CBD produces therapeutic effects without feeling intoxicated, making it a perfect treatment choice, compared to over-the-counter medications. It is also known to help with other treatments such as post chemo symptoms, arthritis, skin conditions, mental disorders, metabolic issues, helps correct body imbalance, and also helps recovery. All of these medical properties of cannabis, which is why cannabis has been part of Ayurveda for all these years. Although this does not change the fact that even these drugs must be consumed under medical supervision.

Today in India, Bombay Hemp Company, also known as “BOHECO”, is a brand that has made it easier for everyone to access Ayurveda or herbal medicine. They offer a variety of products that target not only health and wellness, but nutrition as well.

BOHECO is the fruit of 7 Indian students. Their journey, which started with only 25 families, has today become a revolutionary project for India.
