Launched in June last year by the Perth based distributor of cannabinoid products for the Asia – Pacific market, Altum International. The Found retail store and cafe’ concept is very much about shifting the CBD preconceptions and allowing consumers to explore how plant-powered remedies work in a safe, relaxing setting.
What’s in store at Found?
Nestled in the leafy Sheung Wan’s Po Hing Fong neighbourhood, on Tai On Terrace, Found is Hong Kong’s very first exclusively CBD themed cafe’ and boutique store. With minimalist ultra modern branding, white walls and glass doors inviting you in to enjoy a carefully curated selection of high-quality CBD and hemp-derived products, you’ll find there’s plenty to explore.
Browse through a range of high-quality CBD oils and tinctures, capsules, body lotions and balms, pre-packaged snacks and drinks. Along with their recently released range of highly chewable chocolate chip cookies and luxury crafted CBD chocolates plus other items, including pet-friendly things like CBD-infused dog treats. That has all been made with cannabidiol, the hemp-derived chemical compound that is non-psychoactive and associated with many therapeutic properties.
Or, if you prefer, take a break in the cafe’ and enjoy a menu that’s bursting with a delightful selection of delicious tasting CBD infused tea, coffee, beer, hot chocolate, kombucha and snacks.
Each of the Found products has been independently tested to ensure no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) traces, the compound in the cannabinoids group that’s known for psychoactive effects.
It’s also worth remembering that CBD doesn’t have any dependence potential, there’s no way to “overdose”, and it won’t make you “high.”
However, if you’re new to CBD and unsure about it or you’re keen to learn more about the health benefits (and limitations) of CBD and how among others, it helps relieve chronic pain, improves mood, reduces stress, anxiety and helps alleviate insomnia. Found has a team of experts on hand that are more than happy to share their knowledge with you.
CBD Brands at Found
Along with their own unique CBD collection of products, other exclusive brands to Found include Felix & Company, which offer various CBD formats and strengths, making it great for beginners and pros alike. The range combines premium quality organic CBD with complementary active ingredients to provide maximum benefit. Life CBD is a range of CBD water-soluble liquid and powders that lets you decide how you want to take your cannabidiol. Which is also available at some other local cafés such as Elephant Grounds and Be Juiced
Understanding how CBD Works?
CBD works through what is called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in our body to generate endocannabinoids and process phytocannabinoids to help us return to homeostasis, which is the stable normal that essentially we’re constantly ebbing and flowing from.
CBD combines with the body to adjust our stress response, balancing the body and mind. Because it adapts uniquely to you, it’s known as an adaptogen and is said to have therapeutic effects, like helping to ease the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
CBD is also used for its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidising and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. Which, for many, results in better sleep, soothed muscle tensions and an overall sense of calm.
Why are CBD products so popular?
Whilst CBD may still be viewed with scepticism amongst some, there’s no denying that cannabinoid products have been gaining popularity as more people experience the benefits of all-natural, plant-powered adaptogens.
The launch of an exclusive CBD store and cafe’ like Found continues to demonstrate the growing demand, not only amongst the city’s health-conscious consumers but worldwide, the desire for all-natural wellness remedies and products such as CBD.
So much so that according to the consumer trends insight company Knowledge Navigator, CBD is now taking over the charts in popularity, outperforming some of the biggest celebrities – including the likes of Kanye West and The Beatles – in terms of searches and social media mentions.
Even personal care giant Colgate wants in on this growing market opportunity. As earlier last year, the conglomerate announced the acquisition of Hello Products, one of the fastest-growing natural oral care brands in the U.S. with several CBD oral health offerings.
