Ep. 3 – Exploring the Role of Cannabis in India’s Ayurvedic Practice

Jill and Chris explore the role of cannabis in India’s Ayurvedic practice with guest Abhishek Mohan, the co-founder of Hempstreet, India’s first research to retail venture in the medical cannabis sector. They look at how Ayurvedic tradition and Western methods of research are coming together to benefit millions of patients in India, such as the 335 million menstruating women, the majority of whom suffer from painful menstrual cramps – a focal point addressed by Hempstreet’s new cannabis pain patch. Their work is also exploring how medicinal cannabis can stop India’s opioid epidemic in its tracks. 

Other questions asked:

How does medical access to cannabis differ in India from Western countries?

Does the future of cannabis cultivation mean a new cash crop for millions of India’s small and subsistence farmers?

Cultural traditions are a driving force in India, so what should investors from around the world know when working with the Indian market?
