It’s that time of year again –– where we celebrate what most of India would tell us not to, but would enjoy it in secret, anyway. 4/20 is upon us and even in 2022, things like cannabis and hemp need explaining and justification.
Thanks to several homegrown brands, the tide is turning. Hemp and cannabis acceptance is on the rise, and not just through awareness, but also through their products including clothes, nutrition supplements, oils, and more.
Without any further delay, let’s look at some of these brands that sit on our list, and also have our thanks –– for rightfully integrating hemp into Indian lives and allowing the audience to see its true potential.
I. B.E Hemp
Making ethically sourced hemp products available to all at affordable prices, B.E Hemp covers all bases when it comes to the hemp industry –– they sell products, affiliate themselves with other brands, cater to wholesale needs and also wish to push the hemp message by narrating their (and others’) journey in the Cannabis domain.
