Know about Hongkong's first Cannabis cafe

There have been several different things happening in the country. In Hongkong, Cannabis may be illegal but a new cafe there is offering a range of food and drinks that contain parts of the cannabis plant without violating any local laws. The cafe, named as Found, is the city’s first such cafe to offer a range of coffees, biscuits, beer and fruit juices that contain cannabidiol, or CBD, a substance from the cannabis plant that is said to provide therapeutic effects without getting users intoxicated. Cannabis’s tetrahydrocannabinol compound, commonly known as THC is the psychoactive ingredient that gives users a high.

But unlike THC, CBD is typically used to help reduce stress without going high. One Found customer, Killian Hussey, who works in finance in Hong Kong, said 'consuming CBD coffee is relaxing. The coffee is delicious, and I like the effect that the CBD has on me. Cognitively and physically, it kind of helps me get through the aches and pains of a normal day.'

A bottle of cold CBD-infused coffee costs 80 Hong Kong dollars ($10) at Found, while a can of CBD beer is HK$70 ($9). The cafe, which had a soft opening this month, is supposed to be fully operational in October. As per the Hong Kong government’s Centre for Food and Safety, under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, the illegal import of cannabis or any products that contain controlled cannabinoids constitutes a criminal offense. Although CBD is a cannabinoid, it is not classified as a dangerous drug under Hong Kong law.
