A: CBD is known to promote balance and overall wellness by helping to regulate the communication between the cells of your body. It is known to do this by naturally supplementing and binding with your body’s own Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

CBD has been found to have many benefits to the human body, and many people around the world are using it as a holistic natural supplement to their own healthy lifestyle.

Q: Is there proof of the benefits of Cannabidiol?

A: CBD has been touted for a wide variety of health issues, but the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to antiseizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and in some cases it was able to stop them altogether. Recently the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived medicine for these conditions, Epidiolex, which contains CBD.

CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.

CBD may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. 

Q: Is CBD Legal in Hong Kong?

A: According to several official government press announcements, CBD (cannabidiol) is not classified as a dangerous drug and is therefore not controlled under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance.
