Vijayā (Cannabis sativa): Cannabis is the sacred rejuvenative plant of Āyurveda and by mythology is believed to be originated from the Gods. It is called Vijayā in Sanskrit which means victory from all ailments, to impart sukham (health) and satvaṃ (highest level of consciousness / goodness). Ayurvedic Medical cannabis has a unique relation to neuroendocrine signalling specifically related to Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which has been found to be pervasive in mammalian species. Cannabis plant produces phyto-cannabinoids which are similar to endo-cannabinoid molecules produced naturally in the body. They are involved in various physiological functions such as immune modulation, stress response, respiratory health, appetite stimulation, reproduction, analgesia, sleep, thermoregulation, memory and learning, etc… by binding to cannabinoid receptors (CBRs) which are spread throughout the tissues to maintain homeostasis (equilibrium state of internal, physical and chemical conditions). Vijayā herb has a special property to act as a catalyst and enhance the bioavailability of the other medicinal drugs used along. Medical cannabis is being researched across the globe for its potential use in substance use disorder (SUD) caused due to the dependence of various addictive drugs like tobacco, alcohol, cocaine, heroin, opioids, etc…
