People have grown hemp for centuries, using it to make ropes, clothes, food, and much more. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is non-intoxicating and one of the more than 540 phytochemicals found in the cannabis sativa or hemp plant. Hemp contains CBD and Tetrahydro cannabinol(THC), a compound that gets people high; however, it contains more CBD and less THC. In recent years, public interest in cannabidiol has grown due to its availability and promising health benefits. According to a study by Grand Review Research, the global industrial hemp market size is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.8 percent from 2022 to 2030.

Brands around the world are now incorporating hemp in various forms for its myriad benefits. From sprinkling hemp seeds to add a healthy dose of micronutrients and protein to applying CBD infused topical oils to the skin, consumers are embracing this power packed plant in their day-to-day lives. People also use CBD to help with various mental and physical health related issues, including pain, nausea, addiction, and depression. CBD oil is a potent alternative to allopathy due to its benefits, such as improved brain functions, cellular regeneration and lifespan.

Based out of Haryana and established in 2020, Neet CBD is a cannabidiol oil brand that combines cannabis and ayurveda for wellness care. The founder CEO, Avi Ekveer Sharma, envisioned setting up the organization after his uncle was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. His internet searches for cancer treatments and therapies led him to discover cannabis oil. This discovery sparked a deep interest in the field of cannabis and culminated in the foundation of Hemped Souls International, one of the fastestgrowing hempbased companies in India today.

The organization offers WHO GMP and NDPS 1985-compliant products that are THC-free. All the products are Schedule E1 drugs, which require a prescription. "Human body has natural receptors for CBD known as CB1 and CB2 receptors which make hemp-based CBD compound safe for consumption. All our products are completely natural and do not contain synthetic compounds in any form", shares Avi Ekveer Sharma, Founder & CEO, Neet CBD.
Broadly, India has two types of hemp-based industries. First is the food industry, which comes under FSSAI and requires a THC level of 0.3 percent or less. The second is for medicinal purposes and includes cannabidiol. Hemp plants grow under diverse environmental conditions and are not very demanding. In India, under Section 10 of the Indian Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act of 1985, the state governments have the power to license the cultivation of cannabis for medical and scientific purposes. While hemp grows wild in India, farming is still prohibited. The raw material is sourced by the government and then processed by organizations for various purposes.
