At first, products available in the market – may it be digestible or topical – are mostly used for anxiety, sleep disorders, and chronic pains. “When Saint Jane launched in January 2019, there were not many luxury CBD brands on the market, especially ones that focused on skincare,” says Casey Georgeson, CEO and founder of Saint Jane, a luxury beauty brand offering CBD-infused skincare products. “The market at the time was dominated by edibles, tinctures, and products targeted for muscle and pain relief. That lack of beauty-focused products is why I created Saint Jane,” she adds. T oday beauty industry retailers are embracing the anti-ageing and antioxidant properties of CBD, and are releasing more skincare products into the market.
CBD is considered non-intoxicating, so individuals will not get high when consuming it. “CBD products generally do not cause side effects, but we do advise that anyone already taking significant medication to consult their physician before adding CBD to their daily routine,” explains Mullen. “CBD is unlikely to cause someone to fail a drug test (World Anti-Doping Agency, WADA, have announced that CBD is not a banned substance for professional athletes), but we do recommend that individuals who are required to take drug tests – for work or other reasons – clarify whether CBD is considered a banned substance for their particular situations,” he says.
An introduction to CBD and products available in Hong Kong
“People in Hong Kong, as well as mainland China, have not lost their connection to plant and herbal remedies for overall health and wellbeing like we have stateside and to an extent in Europe,” explains Jamie Leilani Pelayo, co-founder of Natureofthings, a wellness platform from the US that offers an array of CBD luxe bath products and bodycare. “I think Hong Kong consumers are very savvy and knowledgeable on using natural remedies to take care of themselves,” she adds.
“We recommend titrating your dose,” Dobson (Treaty) shares. “Start low and go slow. Titration is the process of determining the medicinal dose that reduces symptoms to the greatest possible degree. Titrating requires consistently and slowly increasing the daily dose you take. This practice helps to develop mindfulness and strengthens the relationship one has to our health,” she adds.
“The benefits of cannabidiol are numerous and vary person to person,” says Mullen (Altum). “CBD helps moderate the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the system responsible for regulating mood, appetite, stress, sleep, motor control, immune function, and more. CBD helps balance some of the imbalances in our ECS. In other words, CBD helps balance the system that balances us,” he adds.
