Cannabis is regarded as the five essential plants in Vedas, and for a good reason. Cannabis or “Vijaya” helps one to attain victory over sufferings. However, so much has been said to misled about the plant, that people often get confused. Its beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Cannabis can be abused, yes. Similarly like anything used in excess is bad. But the medicine has so much potential to help in various ailments

We all know that the Cannabis plant is used for recreational purposes, such as getting high. The Cannabinoid THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the only compound in the Cannabis plant, which gives the psychoactive effect and makes you feel high. We would like to portray the other side of the coin, as it can do wonders for the brain health and the overall wellbeing of yours, if used in the right way and under the supervision of

So, is cannabis good for you? If you asked somebody like Willie Nelson, who stand-up comic Bill Maher called the ‘Founding Father of Stoning’, the answer would be simple: it relieves stress and that alone keeps you healthy. If you asked a doctor about the role stress plays on our overall health, here is the simplest answer you would get: stress directly affects and weakens the immune system. In Star Trek terms, that’s your body’s

For those of us in India, whatever happened in the US in 2014 should be our compass when viewing the marijuana ‘problem’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s very popular and necessary Twitter debate (#drugfreeIndia), which clearly indicated a lack of basic education about marijuana among many urban Indians, makes it even more important for Cannabeings to at least try and attempt to create a more studied view of the herb. Modi’s hashtag (if you allow a

We had a great outing in Kolkata this December. All of us at HempCann love doing something creative or being around people who do creative things. A little music, some theatre and everything that goes into making such things happen go very well with the herb. HempCann supported the launch of the Kolkata Youth Theatre Festival, better known as #KYTF, because only the youth of India seems to understand the necessity of industrial hemp. Almost

Amy Poehler on marijuana, her life and humour. She may be currently playing the overzealous stickler for rules in Parks & Recreation, and her character may even havedeclared “I want to be the President someday so I don’t smoke marijuana” on the show. But in real life, comedienne Amy Poehler is known to not only spark the occasional doobie or three, but also engage in her fair share of pro-marijuana activism via her chosen medium

An introduction to the benefits of hemp milk for the vegan at heart. For some of you, the words ‘hemp milk’ might conjure up images of the protagonist of A Clockwork Orange getting intoxicated on ‘Moloko Plus’ (milk laced with drugs) and then proceeding to engage in an evening of ultra-violence. To these people, we’d like to say three things: firstly, the substance that is purportedly added to the milk in the novel is NOT

Recently we shared a poster that had a simple message: if you do not know that marijuana cures cancer, just google it. This is important because Google has come to define our reality in profound ways, whether we like it or not. While most information you find online requires corroboration, in general the information out there is helpful. Many of the articles we read online have pretty good attribution and seem to be legit. Anyway.

You have heard about Cannabis Indica. Sativa you probably love. So, what about Cannabis ruderalis? This is apparently a lesser known species of the cannabis family (ruderaliscomes from ruderal which means root), though there are a few debates that it’s only a descendant of Indica. Ruderalis is a tough plant as its survival involved coping with harsh conditions, of both weather and human habitation. Found in Asia, Russia and Central/ Eastern Europe, the Ruderalis has
