      Soma Flora: A Cannabis brand with the finest quality Ayurvedic Potions

      When we think Ayurvedic healing practices, what may come to mind are the Vedic scriptures and the wealth of knowledge they hold. Ayurveda goes back almost 5000 years and is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. Just like this healing modality, Soma Flora believes in maintaining the fine balance and health of the mind, body and spirit in order to live a healthy life.

      Soma Flora is a product 5000 years in the making. ‘Soma’ was essentially a mysterious plant/drink that the sages and saints used to heal, in combination with mantras and rituals. While the ancient formulation of Soma has been lost to time, this is a faithful reproduction bringing together cannabis oil and other flora of India with the same intention of bringing peace, relief and bliss into your life. It is an attempt to resurrect an ancient vision, a historic dream and bring it back to the consciousness of the people. 

      Soma Flora made its entry into the Cannabis movement with a range of CBD Edibles such as Honey, Medical Cannabis Oils, Cordyceps Capsules and more. They plan to branch out and bring Hemp clothing, innovative Vijaya products and Ayurvedic formulations into the market.

      Currently, Soma Flora has brought Cosmic Elixir and Lunar Potion into the market. Both of these products are exceptionally unique and loved by customers who use them as a healing modality. What makes these products unique is the formulation of herbs and plants that have been known for their healing properties. For example, Cosmic Elixir uses passion flower, betel nut, kanna and mimosa pudica along with Cannabis – CBD, THC and CBG. And the Lunar Potion uses fennel and nutmeg along with Cannabis. Look anywhere in the world and you won’t find this unique blend of healing ingredients. Soma Flora aims to bring back Soma as a psychotropic medium of exploration for the people and connect them to a higher purpose.

      Even though Soma Flora is just over a year old, it has risen to be one of the leading Vijaya brands in India. It connects people with our rich heritage and is to be used as a vehicle for healing. With one foot in the past, one in the future and its heart in the right place, Soma Flora makes its mark in the Cannabis market.

      Japanese lessons that are treasures for your wellness

      Japanese lessons that are treasures for your wellness

      Japan is known to be one of the countries with the highest life expectancy. Their culture is rooted in practices of wellness that might seem alien to us but they work! And that’s why we’re taking a deeper look into the practices that support the Japanese in their high levels of wellness and good health. 

      A low calorie diet goes a long way

      If you have a general idea of Japanese food – take the most mainstream one, sushi for example, you will notice that their low-calorie approach to food is quite obvious. For example, the 1975 Japanese diet is made of legumes, fruit, seafood and seaweed. A Low calorie diet is key to reducing your risk of premature aging and chronic illness. They also consume twice as much vegetables and seafood as Americans and are not so big on snacks and sugary treats. 

      Mindful eating 

      Apart from choosing a low calorie diet, the Japanese culture also places a lot of importance on attentive eating. Small portions with all their attention placed fully on the meal are how the Japanese have been taught to enjoy their meals, which may be why you don’t find as many to-go Japanese restaurants or dishes. The Japanese also have a saying “Hara Hachi Bu” which translates to eat until you’re 80% full. 

      Tea is their go-to beverage

      Japanese tea is very different from Indian Chai. They take theirs with no milk, cream or sugar. The Japanese have a variety of green teas from the mellow gyokuro to the robust hojicha. You may be aware of the various teas and what they support. For example, chamomile tea is excellent for relaxation and sleep, oolong tea regulates blood sugar and boosts metabolism, jasmine tea is loaded with antioxidants and so on. A few cups of green tea a day can make a huge difference to your overall health.

      Mindful activity facilitates good health

      The Japanese are known to take things slow and prefer walking or biking to places. Commuting by foot means they get extra exercise without even trying and this adds to their health by ten folds. This habit begins from the time they are very young – for example biking to or walking to school and this then grows stronger during adulthood and old age. However, for the Japanese, it’s not just about exercise and activity but also slowing down during those activities. The Japanese culture is rooted in Zen Buddhism and these practices are normalized throughout their society and this has a strong impact on young minds. The practice of “shirin-yoku” means simply noticing what you are seeing, hearing and feeling in the moment. Absorbing and observing without judgement. 

      The Japanese culture is inspiring in more ways than one and we all have a lot we can learn from them. If you, like most of us, come from a culture that promotes the “hustle”, productivity and a fast-paced life, then you might need a little help shifting your perspective to function and be how the Japanese learn to. Starting begins with yourself, however, if you need a little help reaching that zen state of mind, we have some CBD products and full-spectrum hemp oils that work wonders in getting you there. Check them out!
