This Diwali marks an auspicious note for Hemp in India, with the Uttar Pradesh State Government announcing creation of a policy for the cultivation of Cannabis directed towards it’s industrial and medical applications.
This news bodes especially well for research institutes such as National Botanical Research Institute (CSIR-NBRI), that are based in Lucknow and are primed to conduct genetic and botanical development of low THC Cannabis varieties in collaboration with BOHECO, for their use in commercial cultivation by farming communities across Uttar Pradesh. The years to come could prove to be revolutionary for farming communities, all thanks to the light and wisdom of Governments towards the larger vision of embracing Hemp as a tool to catalyze the nation.
Now, BOHECO stands at the forefront of the Hemp industry in India in pursuit of receiving it’s 3rd license followed by India’s first ever medical cannabis license received in Jammu and its second license in Uttarakhand for industrial hemp, both in partnership with government institutes.
They will talk about this journey and their strategies of political advocacy. Donation based event ~ https://www.instamojo.com/@thus_critique/ & at venue (6 Assagao).
