Is this the best year for cannabis or what! India has just received its first medical cannabis clinic! It’s about time. After all, India is one of the world’s biggest cannabis consumers. Bangalore has exceeded public expectations: 420% more likely to live there now. India’s first research-based medical cannabis clinic is expected to be launched in February 2020. The Odisha-based startup, HempCann Solutions, calls it Vedi Herbals.
The First Medical Cannabis Clinic in India
Bangalore will soon be home to India’s first research-based cannabis plant. Finally , after 5 years of extensive research in the field, HempCann Solutions has sold tablets and oils made from cannabis. Therefore , the Vedi Herbals brand will have a wellness center and clinic. They will also ,prescribe cannabis-infused tablets to improve health and well-being.
In fact ,they are intended to combat anxiety, inflammation, and sex-related problems. HempCann told reporters that lifestyle-related illnesses such as stress, back pain, and fever can be fought with their methods. They also said that even chronic illnesses such as anorexia can be helped. Also, medical cannabis can help fight mental illnesses such as depression.
Aayushman Narayan of HempCann was quoted as saying, “THC takes care of inflammation and pain, while CBD works to strengthen your body’s immunity, thus curing the disease completely instead of the patient being dependent on a class of drugs to function normally. Moreover ,herbal remedies, supported by traditional and ancient texts and validated by the principles of modern scientific product development, are non-addictive and have no side effects”. The absence of side effects during slow and regular treatment seems rather good to us.
The federal agency for health and human services, besides the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has approved HempCann. They have a pan-India license. So, any Ayurvedic doctor (which is said to be derived from the Veda, a set of sacred texts from ancient India) can provide a prescription for these drugs. The prescription can also be given through an online consultation. HempCann said he started patients with the lowest dose. They also monitor how they respond and progress based on feedback.
What Else ?
Cannabis therapies are taking over the world. We finally realized that allopathy (classical medicine) is much better. In fact , nature always has a better way. Besides ,Cannabis is part of ancient Indian culture. The world media company Vice reported that Ayurveda is known to have mentioned it several times in texts and writings. Europe, Canada, Latin America and many other parts of the world are preparing for a new medicinal use of cannabis through legalization.
The herb in India remains illegal under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS). Hemp plants, cannabis leaves, and seeds are exempted under this Act. Sourab Agarwal told reporters: “India is the cradle of cannabis and now is the right time for health professionals to realize its immense therapeutic value.
