The humble hemp plant is having a moment in our fair city. Hong Kongers in the know have been using CBD for a couple of years now (and we’ve banging on about it for a while), but suddenly it seems CBD is everywhere. Your aunt’s tried a CBD latte, your best friend’s dog is on CBD drops and your colleague is insistent that CBD has cured her poor sleep. After a relatively quiet mostly-skincare-and-CBD-infused-oils entry into the Hong Kong market proffered by a handful of pioneers, cannabidiol is a newborn star of Hong Kong’s dynamic wellness scene, so we’ve done the hard work of creating your very own Hong Kong CBD guidebook!
If you’re still unclear about what CBD is and why it’s useful, read this. If you are looking for dosing info and how to get started, we’ve got you covered here. For everything else, check the deets below in our comprehensive guide. Happy CBDiscovering!
CBD Heaven: Hong Kong’s First CBD Cafe & Store
Just curious and don’t know where to start? Head to Found, the city’s first CBD café and boutique concept store that opened this June. Found offers its customers CBD oils, tinctures, capsules, body lotions and balms, as well as pre-packaged snacks and drinks – including pet-friendly items like CBD dog treats. The Cafe hasn’t opened yet but you can already try their pastries and chocolates infused with CBD.
Address: Tai On Terrace, Sheung Wan (previous location of MANA Poho).
Where To Grab A CBD Latte Around Town
Mixing CBD with coffee? Yes, why not! Actually it can be great way to get energised (thanks caffeine) while keeping your anxiety at bay (all CBD), not to mention that CBD can also help improve our mental acuity and focus better. If you are a big coffee drinker, that’s a double win!
Here’s where to find the best CBD lattes in town
- Winstons Coffee (Sai Ying Pun and Kennedy Town)
- Elephant Grounds (all location, including Admiralty, Mid-Levels and Causeway Bay)
- MANA (multiple locations)
CBD Beer? Yes, Please!
Love beer but don’t want to experience a messy head the day after? Give OH CBD Beer, Asia’s first CBD beer, a try! The bottled brew launched just a few months ago and was created by the team at Heaven’s Please, Hong Kong’s original CBD experts. Labeled as ‘hangover-free’ and healthy beer, it can be a great alternative to your regular pint for those after-work drinks, not to mention we LOVE the bottle design.
Order Oh CBD Beer on their Facebook page.
Believe it or not, we’ve got a second CBD beer in the city, this time made by craft beer pioneers and brewers extraordinaire Young Master Ales, who offers HEA Pale Ale Packs of CBD beer cans (choose pack of 4 or 12).
Cacao & Chill: CBD Chocolate Find
It’s been the year of chocolate, with recent studies showing the pandemic has seen choccie sales skyrocket. Not sure that’s the case at our house, since we’re pretty much always overdosing on cacao. But even we were pretty excited to learn that the team behind one of Hong Kong’s most passionate quality chocolate missions, Conspiracy Chocolate, have just dropped their very own CBD chocolate bar, handcrafted right here in Hong Kong from single origin cacao beans. Why not combine pleasure with positive health effects?
Order the CBD Chocolate Bar from their website or purchase it at one of their multiple retail partner locations, including The Coffee Academics, Polygon, Eric Kayser, Muji, Bones & Blades and others. Bonus: Conspiracy also makes an exclusive CBD chocolate bar just for TREEHOUSE.
Revitalize With CBD Smoothies & Acai Bowls
Bejuiced has been serving up some of the city’s best organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies and acai bowls for years now, so it’s hardly surprising that they have upped the ante with made-to-order CBD-infused versions !
Order the CBD-infused range of drinks and bowls at their Central shop: 45 Peel Street, Hong Kong.
