Hemp, possibly the earliest plant to be cultivated by humans, is highly controversial…well, at least it has been since the beginning of the 20th century. Hemp provides the strongest natural fiber in the world, widely used in textiles, paper, food and building materials production for thousands and thousands of years, never considered as dangerous or illegal until 1910, when nearly a million Mexicans migrated to the United States of America seeking refuge from the Mexican Revolution. Anti-Mexican sentiment began to ferment, and the name “marijuana” arose to refer, in a negative sense, to cannabis’s use by Mexican immigrants. As the condemnation of cannabis use grew more widespread, the USA started passing anti-marijuana laws, hemp, unfortunately belonged to the same family, was regulated as an illegal substance under the Controlled Substance Act of 1970. After decades of propaganda, even now when the use of cannabis is finally legalized or decriminalized in many places, the imputation remains.
No, not really. While hemp and marijuana are often indistinguishable from each another visually, they are different varieties of the same plant species, cannabis sativa. They are cultivated for different purposes and react differently in the body.
Cannabis consists of up to 100 different cannabinoids, principally CBD and THC. The main difference between hemp and marijuana is the level of THC in the plant (yes, THC is the cannabinoid chemical that makes people high). Hemp has high levels of CBD and very low levels of THC, no more than 0.3%; marijuana is recognized for high levels of THC (between 5-35%), but low in CBD.
CBD derived from hemp with 0% THC is 100% legal in Hong Kong. The possession of CBD skincare is very much encouraged!
CBD is a freshly new product for the world to be commercially accepted. CBD is not a vis less popular, like Hong Kong, many would mistake it for some harmful chemical. But anyone who is obsessive about beauty ingredients must have heard of the latest beauty buzzword: the hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD). It is not psychoactive and can be applied in topical and sublingual ways. In other words, not only is CBD non-harmful and non-addictive, it also carries many advantages in terms of skincare!
CBD is available in several different forms, including creams, oils, tinctures and even gummy bears, allowing people to tailor their method of use to their specific needs.
