Delhi is not only the third largest cannabis user, but also the world’s top ten cheapest weeds city.

According to a new study, the Indian capital is the third largest consumer of cannabis in the world, with 38.26 or 38.260 kg.

Cannabis price index
Study “Cannabis price index 2018” The data-based media campaign carried out by ABCD published new data that highlight the number of cannabis heads and develop stores in 120 cities around the world.
As an example, the study analyzed a previously published cannabis price index 2018 and revealed which locations around the world are ready to accept cannabis legalization.
In the study, Delhi is among the top 10 cities with the highest and largest cannabis consumption, after New York (USA) and Karachi (Pakistan). Mumbai is also in the top ten, ranking sixth, with an average of 32.38 tonnes or 32,380 kg.
Legality and illegality of cannabis in India
Although cannabis use in Delhi has a “partially” legal status, the cannabis legality in India remains largely confused. The definition of the “cannabis plant” has two denominators: cannabis and cannabis Indica.
Although cannabis can be any plant of the marijuana genus. Also, hemp is known as ‘charas’, separated resin, in any form, raw or purified. It comes from the cannabis plant and includes a concentrated preparation. And resin is hash oil or liquid hashish, ganja or blossoming fruit tops and any mixture, with or without any neutral material. Of any of the foregoing forms of cannabis or of any drink prepared therefrom. It is regulated by the Indin law. In accordance with the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
“Bhaang,” a popular beverage produced in Hola, goes beyond the definition of ‘cannabis.’ Because it ‘opposed intolerance of the social and religious customs of India.’
In principle, the NDPS banned the production and sale of hemp resin and flowers. However, it allowed the use of leaves and seeds, allowing states to regulate them.
This means that although the production of ‘charas’ and ‘ganja’ is illegal, the seeds and leaves forming ‘bhaang’ are legal.
Cannabis Indica is also very cheap in India
The survey also shows that Delhi is among the top 10 cheapest cities in the world, with a cost of only $4.38 (or less than €3.00 EUR) per gram.
Surprisingly, India does not appear in countries where marijuana would be profitable if it were taxed by the government.
Cannabis legality in other countries
Amsterdam in the Netherlands seems to be on every bucket list of the weed lovers. It is on page 56 with an annual consumption of tons 3.6, which is just one of the 10 in Delhi!
“Illegal cannabis use is so high in countries that still carry the death penalty, such as Pakistan and Egypt. Those in power ought to see how desperately we need new legislation,” comments Uri Zeevi, CMO at Seedo. “By removing the criminal element from marijuana, governments will then be able to more safely regulate production. Also, take away power from underground gangs, and as we’ve shown in this study, generate huge tax revenues.”
“We believe that by understanding the cost of weed around the world, we can help to educate smokers about the potential financial benefits of hydroponic growing technology.”
