Our Story

The Veda Warrior Mission

In the ancient language of Sanskrit, Veda means knowledge. At Veda Warrior, we view ourselves as peaceful warriors of knowledge.
Our goal is to empower you with ancient healing wisdom that has worked for thousands of years, so that you can make smart, proactive choices to optimize your daily health and happiness.

Why We Exist

After nearly a decade of life as a stressed-out New Yorker, I realized that my fast-paced lifestyle was simply unsustainable in the long run—the human body just wasn’t designed to feel stressed all the time. When my chronic stress left me searching for answers on how to live a happier and healthier life, I returned to my roots.
As an Indian American, I was raised with the ancient healing wisdom of Ayurveda, the world’s oldest medical science. Ayurveda and yoga both come from a set of four ancient texts known as the Vedas, dating back over 5,000 years. For thousands of years, my family has been part of the Brahmin caste, a group of people tasked with studying and teaching the ancient knowledge of the Vedas—generation after generation. My last name, Choubey, literally translates to “the four Vedas.” 
When I reexamined Ayurvedic principles to help my mind and body recover from years of feeling consistently stressed out, I realized that my ancient ancestors had compiled an encyclopedic amount of information on how to optimize our daily health—information that continues to hold true today. In fact, throughout the globe ancient healing traditions had guided humanity for thousands of years, until this knowledge was largely forgotten to make way for modern day pharmaceuticals.
In Ayurvedic tradition, hemp is a sacred plant medicine. From relieving stress and creating balance to enhancing yoga and meditation practices, it has played a major role in traditional healing wisdom for thousands of years. Veda Warrior was founded to revive this ancient art of healing with hemp in order to optimize our modern lifestyles.
