Trends Transforming The CBD And Hemp Industry Landscape In India

Ayurvedic system of medicine is based on a conceptual medical system which depends on balancing three functional elements of human body viz. Vayu, Pitta and Kapha.

Hemp and CBD are both derived naturally from the Cannabis plant. Cannabis has always been a part of the ancient Vedas and has been classified as one of the five sacred plants. Cannabis finds earliest mentions in Ayurveda text as “Vijaya” . It has been held in high esteem for its medicinal properties. Ayurveda literature like the Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, and Shargandhara Samhita mention the use and properties of Vijaya in the following manner-

1. Deepana (promotes secretions of enzymes),

2. Pachana (digestive),

3. Ruchya (stimulates olfactory & taste buds),

4. Madakari (intoxicant),

5. Vyavayi (quick-acting),

6. Grahi (drying effect),

7. Medhya (cognitive),

8. Rasayana (promotes life)

Medicinal Use- Medical cannabis is cannabis that is used to treat medical conditions. The main cannabinoid utilised in medicinal cannabis is CBD, thus it isn’t used for its intoxicating properties. Cannabinoid compounds are also produced by the body. Pleasure, memory, reasoning, attention, body movement, knowledge of time, appetite, pain, and the senses are all regulated by these substances (taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight). CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with a wide range of therapeutic and medical applications. Some of these benefits5 are-

  • to control pain,
  • to ease nausea,
  • to treat loss of appetite,
  • to treat some symptoms of multiple sclerosis

Many medical cannabis companies in the country have started conducting CME (Continuing medical education ) seminars which will only lead doctors learning about the potential benefit of the plant. This will allow certified practitioners prescribing the cannabis based medicines.
