Bengaluru Startup Makes Waves: Cannabis Delivery Service Smashes Expectations with 1000+ Pre-orders on First Day


As unbelievable as it might sound, but we all know Medicinal Cannabis or Marijuana is a physician prescribed drug. 

In Ayurveda, cannabis is called “Bhanga” or “Vijaya” and it’s highly respected. The ancient texts like Atharva Veda praise it as one of the most sacred plants, calling it a source of joy and relief. Ayurvedic books like Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita talk about its healing properties. 

Cannabis has been around for a long time and is used to change how the mind works. 

In 2017, the Great Legalisation movement in India filed a petition in the Delhi High Court, arguing that banning cannabis goes against the right to life in the constitution. They wanted to raise awareness about its medical, industrial, and other benefits.

Today its medicinal properties have made a place for itself in the usage of various drugs specifically focusing to ease out the pain in the suffering patients.  

Welcome to Calmosis, where natural healing transforms lives.

CBD Vs Melatonin: Beneficial for Sleep 

Melatonin, a hormone naturally produced in the pineal gland, plays a crucial role in regulating sleep-wake cycles. 

This isn’t inherently a bad thing — there are worse ways to induce sleep. However, taking external sources of endogenous hormones can backfire over time, as the body loses its ability to produce them independently. Melatonin is also known to cause unwanted side effects, making for an unsustainable daily routine. 

On the other hand, CBD (cannabidiol), derived from the cannabis plant, interacts with the human endocannabinoid system.


“Our mission is to inspire a worldwide shift from allopathy to Ayurveda, embracing its inherent natural approach. Through pioneering research and development, we seek to nurture holistic well-being, empower Indian farmers, and cultivate healthier, more balanced lives.” states Calmosis.
