      India’s only trusted CBD brands

      India’s only trusted CBD brands

      Cannabis, the wonder plant is gaining momentum yet again in the 21st century after its decline in the 20th century. The cannabis consumption in India has always had medicinal and religious overtones. It has been a part of our culture for centuries but has lost its place in society after its criminalization. The wonders and benefits of this plant have been buried under the moral and legal debate – but not anymore. Cannabis is so versatile and can be used in a number of ways, more sustainably than any other materials available.

      What are cannabinoids?

      Cannabinoids are the compound that is extracted from hemp – a variety of the cannabis sativa plant that is one of the fastest growing alongside bamboo. There is evidence that indicates hemp was used to make ropes since 10,000 BC.

      Today, what we use in the market is cultivated for its low THC quantity and is known as industrial hemp. CBD is also extracted from the leaves and flowers of industrial hemp and makes up almost 40% of hemp extract. Apart from CBD and THC, hemp is also rich in CBN, CBDA, CBG, CBC, CBL, CBCA, and CBGA, among many other less researched and popularized compounds.

      How do these cannabinoids assist you in feeling uplifted?

      Our ECS or Endocannabinoid system is running the show. It regulates mood, appetite, temperature and motor perception, the immune system and much more. Essentially, it maintains the harmony and balance in our body. Our ECS does this by releasing endocannabinoids. While endocannabinoids are produced by our bodies, phytocannabinoids are produced by plants and they have been observed to interact the same way with the ECS. 

      The research that has been conducted so far, strongly suggests that cannabinoids are helpful in minimizing chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression, PTSD, addiction and epilepsy. It’s also being discovered that cannabinoids work more effectively when taken together (known as full-spectrum), creating the entourage effect. If you want to experience the full potential of the healing properties of hemp, we suggest you experience the entourage effect! 

      How to choose the right Cannabis brands in India

      If you’re interested and would like to purchase some Hemp or CBD products in the upcoming days, here are a few things to keep in mind while doing so because the market in India is still largely unregulated and you may be in for an unpleasant or unsatisfactory experience if you don’t go about this the right way!

      • Firstly, always do your research and buy from a well-reputed and trustworthy brand! Get to know the brand and buy if you comply with their ethics. 
      • Know the source of your hemp! Related to the point above, also research where the hemp used in your product comes from because hemp absorbs heavy metals and pesticides from the ground. You don’t want to be consuming adulterated or polluted hemp. 
      • If the brand or product has a Certificate of Analysis or COA, you’re good to go! This shows that the product has been tested and the ingredients are clearly labelled.

      CBD and mysticism – What we can learn from Anandamayi Ma

      When one chooses to begin their journey on the spiritual path, they are presented with a number of instances that wake them up to the qualities within themselves that they haven’t been aware of. We all have experienced this type of awakening at some point in our lives and as we embark on the journey of infusing light to even the darkest parts of us, we begin to look for guidance – we seek others who have been through the journey, whether it’s our friends, gurus or plant medicine.

      One wise and radiant woman who has helped many along their spiritual journey is Anandamayi Ma. She was an Indian saint who lived until 1982. She has been described as "the most perfect flower the Indian soil has produced” by Sivananda Saraswati. Her teachings are fluid and feminine because they do not adhere to “one right path” or “one way of being”. She always stated that “everyone is right from their own standpoint”. "How can one impose limitations on the infinite by declaring this is the only path—and, why should there be so many different religions and sects? Because through every one of them He gives Himself to Himself, so that each person may advance according to his inborn nature." She says as she describes the nature of her beliefs. She advocated for the spiritual progress of women by demolishing discrimination and introducing the sacred thread ceremony that was previously available only to men to women.  

      She was observed to be persistently and naturally in a state of divine bliss. Her nature was endearing, magnetic and intriguing to many. Even when her mother fell dangerously ill, she was seen to be detached and in a state of neutrality. If one chooses Anandamayi Ma to look up to on their journey here on earth, it opens up the mind to the possibility that one can live in a state of impermeable joy. But in this fast-paced world and life, although many of us may be enraptured by her teachings, it becomes very hard to stay aware and in a positive mindset all the time. We can only draw inspiration from such amazing women and teachers and try to stay true to our path. Although it may be difficult, it is not impossible. With our modern-day problems comes tools that are designed to help you on your spiritual journey and one such tool is Cannasbis. CBD specifically can help transport you to a more aware, and open to the messages from your soul and intuition. As Anadamayi Ma also says, the best teacher you can encounter is your own inner nature. Self-realization is god-realization, she says.

      If you’re on the spiritual path and are feeling stuck or frustrated in your journey, or if you simply are inspired by Anandamayi Ma, or you just want to advance on your journey, take a little help from CBD to get you in the state of mind to absorb and integrate the magic this world has to offer. If you are a woman who’s reading this, now is the best time to start because it’s Women’s Month at our store and we are giving you 10% off with the code WMN10. Godspeed on your journey! May you encounter the magnificence of your own soul.

      Using CBD to aid menstrual cramps

      Using CBD to aid menstrual cramps

      It’s that time of the month again and this time it’s no joke. You’re moving from fetal position on one side to fetal position on the other and the pain just doesn’t seem to subside. Ladies, being on your period, especially when it’s heavy and painful is truly something commendable. But some days, it does get too much for some of us and that’s when we resort to pharmaceuticals to mitigate or take away the pain. Although it does work almost immediately, it’s not a healthy mechanism to fall back on. What if, instead, you had a natural alternative that does what a pain killer would do without the harmful long-term side effects? This is where CBD comes in.

      CBD or Cannabidiol is one of a hundred compounds that are extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant. CBD binds to the Endocannabinoid receptors in your body. The Endocannabinoid system is responsible for many functions such as appetite, inflammation, pain and sleep. When it comes to menstruation, the hypothesis is that CBD helps alleviate the pain and inflammation that is caused when the uterus contracts to expel the lining. 

      There are no official studies that link menstrual cramps and CBD directly; however, there are plenty that show that CBD plays a key role in reducing inflammation and managing pain. There is also anecdotal evidence that points to the reduction of the severity in symptoms after 3 months of consistent CBD use. 

      hemp oil, CBD Products

      If you want to start with CBD for menstrual pain, the rule is to start off at lower doses until you find the sweet spot, the dosage that works for you. Some women who have tried it, reported a reduction in pain as well as a decrease in other symptoms such as headaches and emotional turmoil. Simona, a 24-year old model from north London recalls her experience with CBD: "During my periods I would have really bad headaches and, like everyone else, I was using pain relief. But that would barely scratch the surface. I often couldn't go to school or university or work because of the pain. I would have to leave in the middle of the day and it really affected my quality of life. I'd be crying from the pain. I couldn't stand up or breathe normally. It was horrible. I felt angry a lot of the time, probably because I was so frustrated with my circumstances." 

      The bottom line is that different things work for different people. If you’re looking for natural ways to aid your period cramps, CBD is definitely worth a try. We’ve even got a product from Sisters Of The Valley concocted especially for women who want to alleviate period pain. Check it out or consult our Doctors to receive a recommendation!
