We've all heard stories of people purchasing cannabis or weed or marijuana on social media in India, haven't we? 

Some of us may have even made online purchases before. Surprisingly, many aren't aware that buying, selling, and using cannabis has been banned in India since 1985. 

However, individuals with specific health issues are permitted to use cannabis oil in India.

Activists have been fighting for years advocating its use for medicinal reasons. The taboo behind cannabis is allowing dealers, criminals, and gangsters a free runway to supply ganja to the Indian youth.

As a result, the government began discussing the issue in 2020. 

In 2022, India relaxed its laws on cannabis, allowing vendors to sell it exclusively for medicinal purposes based on a condition and scientific research.

The research suggests that the medicinal use of cannabis has been mentioned in India’s ancient texts, and validates its benefits to patients.

And, the vendors must demand prescriptions signed by an Ayurvedic doctor to sell cannabis to a patient.

This Bangalore-based wellness startup is making it possible for needy cannabis users.

Launched in 2023, Calmosis is an Ayurveda-based wellness startup providing high-speed doorstep delivery of 100% natural-organic cannabis extract/oil to address your stress and sleep issues in our fast-paced lives.

The best part is, that it’s completely legal to travel with Calmosis’ cannabis products across the country.

Startup Pedia felt privileged to hear Calmosis’ inspiring story from its co-founders Karan Naidu and Praveen Singh Rajput as they gracefully came forward to discuss it.

The origin story:

Karan, an IT graduate, got the idea during his mother’s health treatments, where medicinal cannabis proved to be immensely effective. 

“My mom struggled with sleep problems and regularly took allopathic pills to help her sleep. What struck me was that these pills seemed to artificially induce sleep by boosting melatonin levels in her body”, Karan shared with Startup Pedia.

However, he explains that Calmosis is completely safe; it naturally induces sleep and organically elevates one from migraines and headaches.

“But what makes our cannabis different is that it just makes your mind calm because everyone nowadays has a restless mind; people have a very short attention span…so, cannabis just calms the mind; it relaxes you completely, so the by-product is nothing but you falling asleep”: added the Bangalore-based entrepreneur.

Cannabis is used for both recreational and medicinal purposes. In India, cannabis is called ganja, but it's mostly used for recreation. Cannabis is a natural medicine and has no known toxic side effects. Its leaves can be extracted for medicinal purposes.

Is Cannabis a part of Indian Ayurvedic culture?

Cannabis is one of the 5 secret plants mentioned in the Vedic texts alongside Neem, Tulsi, Sandal, and Jasmin. Cannabis has been used historically to reduce stress.

What is cannabis made of?  

Cannabis contains CBD and THC, for therapeutic effects. CBD, with low psychotropic impact, aids in pain relief, inflammation reduction, and alleviating symptoms like migraines, anxiety, and seizures. THC, the main psychoactive compound, induces the 'high' effect.

Are cannabis and its products legal in India? 

Since 1985, possessing these substances has been a criminal offense, with serious legal repercussions. However, states like Odisha permit cannabis use, while Uttarakhand allows commercial hemp cultivation. Medicinal cannabis is legal in India, but obtaining it requires contacting reputable producers like Calmosis.

What are the benefits of medicinal cannabis? 

It helps people who suffer from migraine, anaemia, arthritis pain, spinal cord pain, anxiety, and depression. However, the use of cannabis-infused medicines has proved to help many patients cope with ailments like Alzheimer’s or epilepsy effectively with no side effects at all.
