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 everybody we met in Kolkata seemed to want a greener and cleaner future.
Since our primary concern now is to educate people about the benefits of cannabis and hemp, we were happy when the organisers contacted us to be a part of the event. As Buddha said, if we understand even one herb deeply our entire lives will change. And cannabis is that herb.
We saw this very interesting Internet meme which says there should be “one medicine for many diseases and not many medicines for one disease”. Research worldwide has been proving time and again that the CBD and THC in the cannabis plant is that one medicine.
As a young organisation ourselves, we have decided to align with the youth and do our best to create awareness about one of Nature’s most important gifts, so that we have a future that understands its fears and moves beyond it. Only the youth seem to have the wisdom and the ability to see beyond the pop-speak of the establishment and the mainstream media’s views that often reek of inaccurate perception or even ignorance.
So, what did we do at #KYTF? We gave the event a hemp makeover by providing absolutely green hemp-cotton t-shirts. We also distributed HempCann pamphlets to all the art-loving young and young-at-heart people to tell them about the benefits of marijuana and hemp.
Here are a few pictures to give you a feel of the event. We thank #KYTF for the thrilling association and we will be joining these bunch of cool people again in the New Year in February for the theatre festival.
