Cannabis in India can be found in two forms including hemp and cannabis plant. Cannabis plant means any plant of the genus cannabis, on the other hand, hemp is also known as charas which can be obtained in any form like crude or purified form from the cannabis plant. The process also includes concentrated preparation and resin known as hashish oil, liquid hashish or ganja.
Bhaang which is one of the most popular drinks made during Holi is left out of the stereotypical definition of cannabis as it is socially accepted in the social and religious customs of India. The National Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) banned the production and sale of ganja resi and flowers but allowed the used of leaves and seeds of the same for medical purposes which clearly states that production of charas and ganja is illegal, on the other hand, production of bhaang is legal.
