Cannabis Science + Ayurveda
India’s traditional systems of medicine such as Ayurveda have recognised and recorded the beneficial properties of cannabis since ancient times. Nearly 200 classical formulations using cannabis are recorded in Ayurveda’s reference texts. Savikalpa takes inspiration from India’s traditional use of cannabis to create novel formulations for the health and wellness needs of the 21st century.
Cannabis is a registered therapeutic ingredient in the Indian and Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeias, and India has the oldest medical cannabis regime in the world.
Confusion on cannabis and its medicinal use abounds. Patients are uncertain how cannabis medicine works, what it works for, the legality of cannabis medicine in different countries, or the basics of phytocannabinoids such as THC and CBD and their interaction with the human endocannabinoid system.
Physicians have to expend efforts to find the latest in cannabis scientific research, clinical practice and dosage, rules and regulations, and drug delivery form factors suited to varying patient needs.
Savikalpa is thus building a dedicated “Academy”, an information hub especially targeted at healthcare practitioners, which collates the latest in cannabinoid research and learnings from global clinical practice in a one-stop-shop for all queries pertaining to any aspect of cannabis science and medicine.
