Hong Kong: Eligibility of CBD-Containing Foods to Hong Kong Remains Ambiguous
The eligibility of food and non-food products containing cannabidiol (CBD) in Hong Kong is uncertain, because tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a strictly controlled substance in Hong Kong that can be found in CBD and CBD products. With the growing global popularity of CBD ingredients, the Hong Kong retail market has witnessed the emergence of CBD products. There are second-hand reports of some detained shipments of CBD products, and importers have been questioned by the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department. However, there are no reported prosecutions for selling products containing CBD ingredients.
