CBD or cannabidiol, a chemical compound that can be found in both hemp and cannabis plants, is the latest trend to take Hong Kong by storm. Initially, just a buzz in the beauty and wellness scene, it has also picked up momentum in the food and beverage industry.
Riding on this new trend, cafes and breweries are now offering CBD in their drinks. Thanks to its stress-relieving properties and other health benefits, more and more are opting to add CBD with their morning cuppa or after-work drinks.
If you're looking to jump on this new trend or already in love with CBD products, a visit to these places to get your CBD-infused drink is a must. We break down all the spots to go to whether you're looking for your caffeine fix, refreshing juice or a strong drink to end a long day.
