The rise of the Indian hemp business

New Delhi: The current generation of entrepreneurs selling hemp products in India are generally confronted by their regular consumers with the question, “Will this get me high?” A similar question is not part of the psyche when it comes to herbal products like tea, coffee, seeds, oil, powder, etc.

Despite its diverse uses and its diverse sustainability, this question will persist without proper knowledge of the use of hemp. Hemp is used in foods, beverages, supplements, and fabrics. In India, state governments are empowered to authorize the cultivation of cannabis for medicinal and scientific purposes under Section 10 of the Indian Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act 1985. Therefore, the government of Uttarakhand became the first state to grant the Indian Industrial Hemp Association a license to grow hemp for the cultivation of industrial hemp. States such as Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh are also striving to legalize the harvest.

In recent years, many startups have been working together to open up a domestic market for innovative products such as hemp concrete, hemp paper and biofuel. They also promote hemp cultivation in their regions. One of the major improvements in their efforts has been to make people more aware of the difference between hemp and medicinal cannabis in terms of its use and abuse.
