Although cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound contained in cannabis, CBD cafes in Hong Kong are completely legal. CBD has no psychoactive effects, meaning there is no “high” and no risk of physical dependence, according to the World Health Organization’s Critical Review Report on CBD.
CBD products are now widely available in Hong Kong. Although the effects of CBD differ from person to person, it is said to help with stress management, appetite control, sleep, immune function and more. It’s no surprise that the beauty industry and local bar scene have jumped on board with CBD skin care products, cosmetics, cocktails and even coffee.
CBD stress-relieving properties, along with a caffeinated energy boost, provide an intriguing push-and-pull dynamic. A high-low contrast that, if the growing number of CBD-infused coffee shops is any indication, works.
Try a CBD-infused drink at one of these cafes if you’re looking for a caffeine boost that can help you relax. We’ve rounded up some of the best CBD cafes in Hong Kong to help you branch out with this natural supplement.
Elephant Grounds should be familiar territory for any true cafe hopper. Elephant Grounds offers a vast range of food and drink options that never disappoints. But if you’re curious about CBD, you can add water-soluble CBD to any beverage. Life CBD (HK$15 for 10mg and HK$25 for 20mg) can be added to drinks, whether it’s a green smoothie or even a mug of freshly brewed coffee. Many drinks can blend well with the liquid, which gives a slight sweetness.
Address:8 Wing Fung Street, Wan Chai
Found is Hong Kong’s first CBD boutique and cafe, located in Sheung Wan’s Po Hing Fong neighborhood. The cafe serves a limited menu of beverages and snacks, several of which are CBD-infused, as well as a discount design shop that sells CBD items from companies including Felix & Co and Life.
Address:Unit A, G/F, 8 Tai On Terrace, Sheung Wan
Coffee Analog is a trendy and homey cafe and bar hidden away in Prince Edward, serving coffee by day and whiskey by night. Its wooden details and dim lighting produce a relaxed atmosphere that will leave you feeling like you’re a million miles away from the city. For a refreshing evening, order their Aeropress CBD coffee and pair it with one of the shop’s popular chiffon cakes.
Address:169 Sai Yeung Choi Street North, Prince Edward
Winstons Coffee is a popular coffee shop in the Sai Ying Pun and Kennedy Town neighborhoods. We strongly suggest drinking their CBD cold brew that is blended with 1 ml of OTO CBD’s nonalcoholic cocktail additives, which features a special combination of bitter orange, bergamot, lemon grass, licorice, cinnamon, cacao and cardamom to add a slightly fruity finish.
Address:213 Queen’s Road West, Sai Ying Pun
Matchali is the spot-to-be for non-coffee consumers that want to get in on the CBD action. To offer matchaholics a soothing range of nutritious, handcrafted beverages, this Indigenous matcha company sources its tea from Uji, Kyoto – regarded as the birthplace and city of matcha. Grab a drink filled with Reset Bioscience’s THC-free nano-liposome CBD tincture, which is suitable for both hot and cold drinks, for a healthy boost. Matchali does not yet have a permanent location, but you can check out their new pop-up at Pacific Place, which will be open until September of this year.
