What is Hemp?

According to the company, Hemp has various health benefits and usage as an active ingredient in Ayurvedic and other medicines. Thus, they believe that the cannabis market will grow drastically. However, the complex regulatory structure of industrial hemp and its usage in different countries has created ambiguity upon its legality. Today increasing demand for hemp seeds over traditional herbal seeds is driving the growth of the market. There are over 2 crore legal cannabis users in India and the growing demand for personal care products, protein supplements, cosmetics and several other Hemp products will boost the market in the forecast period.
