Homegrown hemp brands that focus on cannabis for stress, pain and skin relief


Infuse a bit of calm in your mind and body care rituals with the therapeutic effects of cannabis

A green bottle of hemp seed oil proudly sits next to avocado and olive oil on my kitchen shelf. Albeit not daily, it occasionally finds its way into my salads, or on my skin when it’s going through extreme bouts of dryness. Hemp seed oil comes with numerous benefits—filled with fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 and 9, proteins and vitamins—consumed or applied topically. From oils and tinctures to hemp-infused creams and even makeup—the once notorious plant has officially infiltrated Indian households in various forms. Discovered in 1940, cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of more than hundreds of cannabinoids found in cannabis, and unlike its scandalous cousin THC, it is non-psychoactive i.e. it won’t get you high. It will, instead, lend its therapeutic properties against a varied range of conditions. According to a cross-sectional study of cannabidiol users, CBD was used as therapy to particularly combat pain and inflammatory disorders, in addition to anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. Ahead, we pick the homegrown brands that are harnessing the power of the plant to bring relief to the mind and body.
