Cannabis – A Billion Dollar Cash Crop or Myth

Cannabis has been a part of the Indian culture for centuries. However, under the influence of western colonies, the plant seems to have lost is reputation and the country has developed a love-hate relationship with the so-called ‘magical herb’. But times have begun to change and so is the outlook towards cannabis. While the legalization of marijuana would be a farfetched dream for Indians, hemp can help solve multiple 21st-century problems. Unlike marijuana, the Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC level of hemp is less than 0.3% and hence, the cannabis variety cannot be used for recreational activities. Having said, Hemp, today is dubbed as billion dollar cash crop and it is widely believed that the parts of the plant can be used to produce over 30,000 products such biodiesel, textile, concrete, food, etc. As India continues to frown on the plant, it is about time that we change our standpoint towards hemp. This July, at the Annual Entrepreneur India Conclave, for the first time, we have decided to take the conversation to a public forum. As a part of the industry, we invite you to the roundtable discussion on Why India Should legalize Industrial Hemp. The roundtable is scheduled on Day 1 at the EI Conclave i.e. 17 July 2019, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM onwards.
