Get schooled on where to shop CBD products in Hong Kong. It’s the latest trend we’re loving.
At Honeycombers, we are not afraid to explore topics like emergency contraception, LGBTQ movies, and dating apps in Hong Kong. With a growing demand for CBD across the globe, we decided to have a look at what CBD actually is, and where to shop CBD products in Hong Kong.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD), an active ingredient in Cannabis (marijuana), is extracted from hemp plants. While a lot of people think that CBD is the same as marijuana, they are essentially different substances. Unlike marijuana, CBD does not make people “high” and there is no evidence of potential abuse, according to the World Health Organisation. Some proven benefits of CBD include muscle pain relief, anxiety reduction, anti-acne and cancer treatment. On the other hand, depression, dizziness and low blood pressure are possible side effects, although they are rarely reported by CBD users.
Is CBD legal in Hong Kong?
At the moment, CBD is legal in Hong Kong as it is not prohibited under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance. Local CBD sellers have to obtain a related license from the government and prove their products to be THC free.
