What CBD Products Are Available in Hong Kong?

Before incorporating CBD into your daily routine in Hong Kong, it’s important to know what products are available. While there are lots of CBD products on the market, the most popular are CBD Oils/Gummies and CBD Topicals (creams)

Oral CBD Products: Tinctures, Capsules and Gummies.

When people begin to consider using CBD daily as a supplement, they often think of products intended for oral use. These products fit into three main categories – CBD oil tinctures, capsules, and edibles.

CBD oil manufacturers typically package tinctures in a colored glass bottle with a dropper. They’re available in a wide range of concentrations.

Generally, people introduce CBD oil tinctures to the body through sublingual absorption. To do this, you hold your preferred serving under your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds. This method allows CBD to enter the bloodstream directly through the small blood vessels near the surface of the mouth.

On the other hand, capsules, gummies, and other edibles are specifically intended to be swallowed, which allows the product to absorb through the digestive tract. And while it’s generally accepted that ingesting CBD causes the substance to act on the body more slowly, it can be a more familiar and pleasant option for taking CBD daily.

Similarly, some people also use CBD tinctures in food and drink recipes as part of their CBD daily routine.

Topical CBD products: Lotions, Gels, Balms, and More

CBD topicals are intended for application to and absorption through the skin.

Most people use CBD topicals on an as-needed basis. However, if uncomfort is a problem at work or during exercise, certain topicals for joints and muscles are helpful with daily use.

cbdMD’s Freeze Roller (2020 Product of the Year - CBD Topicals and Recover cream represent examples of CBD topicals explicitly formulated for relief of discomfort. Each contains a variety of soothing compounds alongside CBD to provide targeted support where you need it most.

 

Now that you know a little more about your options for taking CBD daily, let’s look at some examples of how you might add them to your routine.

1. CBD Daily: Morning

One of the best ways to cement a new supplement into your daily routine is to make it part of your morning ritual!

Many of us run on autopilot in the morning hours, especially on weekdays. If you manage to add a serving of CBD as a waypoint in your morning journey, you’re set.

You can accomplish this easily by adding a CBD Gummy to the vitamins and other supplements you take every morning. 

As mentioned above, many people use CBD tinctures in beverages, and some add their preferred daily CBD serving to coffee or tea each morning. You can also use CBD oil in your favorite breakfast bar recipe.

Since some users report that CBD can cause a mild sedative effect, you may opt for a smaller serving during the morning hours.

But consistency is vital, according to users. Many report best results from using CBD daily compared to sporadically or strictly on an as-needed basis.

2. CBD Daily: Pre or Post Workout

Generally speaking, people who integrate CBD into their workout routines use it as a recovery tool. Some early research indicates that CBD may inhibit the release of stress hormones that can hinder muscle gains. However, these preliminary studies are not conclusive.

It can take up to two hours for CBD to reach the bloodstream when digested, so some fitness enthusiasts ingest CBD immediately before daily exercise. Doing so allows them to begin enjoying the effects of CBD shortly after their workouts.

Some also use CBD topicals as a way to alleviate joint or muscle discomfort during or immediately after exercise.

3. CBD Daily: Night time

Sleep experts recommend a “wind-down” period beginning 30-60 minutes before bed. They advise lowering your home’s temperature, turning down the lights, shutting off screens, completing hygiene practices, and deep breathing or meditation exercises during this time.

Many people also incorporate CBD before bed into their evening routines, especially those who take great care to get a good night’s rest.

cbdMD’s CBD PM, an award-winning CBD tincture with added melatonin, has become a particularly popular choice.

4. CBD Daily: Combinations of Times and Products

The best time to take CBD as part of a daily routine is a matter of personal preference, and some people use CBD more than once per day.

Some CBD users prefer to take a single, larger serving during a specific time of the day. Others may take the same total amount over several servings during their day and mix products for particular needs.

For instance, one person may wish to take a total of 60-70 mg of CBD per day while still supplementing their diet with melatonin. That person may eat two CBD gummies during the day, and take one serving of CBD PM at night.

 

Things to Consider Before Taking CBD Daily

There are endless success stories about using CBD for a wide range of purposes. But there are a few key things you should think about before you begin a daily CBD routine.

First, you should always speak with a licensed physician before starting any supplement. It’s doubly important if you take prescription drugs or have underlying health issues. A doctor can also offer guidance on serving sizes and the best time to take CBD in your unique circumstances.

There are also wide variations in the quality and safety of CBD products, and new CBD users should conduct thorough research before choosing a supplement.

To gauge the quality of a CBD company's products, always look for third-party lab tests of their products. These are often referred to as Certificates of Analysis and should list all cannabinoid content and contaminants. If you cannot find such documents, those products cannot be trusted.
