India’s version of world famous B.C. bud comes from the northeastern state of Manipur. There, cannabis grows in the wild.

And now that state is considering making its cannabis available to medical patients. 

The state’s chief minister told The Indian Express of plans to use cannabis for hemp oil.

“Our revenue must be strong. Moreover, cannabis grows in the wild abundantly in Manipur and this can be used for extraction of hemp oil which is known for its medicinal property,” he says.

Manipur is strategically positioned to make an impression on world markets. It’s geographically close to the so-called Golden Triangle of the Asian drug trade.
