Hemp Seeds, Oil at BOHECO Life
Boheco is touted as one of the most promising hemp start-ups as it’s backed by high-profile investors such as Google India’s Managing Director Rajan Anandan, and Ratan Tata of Tata Sons.
The company was founded by six H.R College graduates – Avnish Pandya, Chirag Tekchandaney, Delzaad Deolaliwala, Jahan Peston Jamas, Sumit Shah, and Yash P Kotak, who wanted to explore the medicinal and lifestyle benefits of cannabis and by making apparel, beauty products, building material, and much more out of the most misunderstood product.
They aim to break prejudices about the crop and assist local farmers in cultivating cannabis which will, in turn, help the farmers rise above bad socio-economic conditions. That’s why their campaign is called, “Educate, Cultivate, Elevate”.
Boheco’s first product in the market was handloom fabric, woven by a women’s self-help group based in Uttarakhand. The idea was to give local artisans working with wild hemp an opportunity to sell their products to urban communities. This was a huge win for the founders’ goal of changing the perception of cannabis cultivation from “dope” to “hope”, as they described it in an interview with Your Story. For the consumer, BOHECO offers hemp leaf extract products containing cannabinoids such as CBD and THC under their ayurvedic medicine and wellness range. Research shows that cannabinoids have a therapeutic value for multiple illnesses especially chronic pain.
When they first began, it wasn’t easy as people were skeptical of a cannabis business making money in India. However, as investors and businesses observe their success, their company is booming with investment and growing steadily.
