Accessible Health Solutions With C-HEMP, an All-Natural, Certified CBD Brand
After over a year of lockdowns, travel restrictions and unprecedented separation from family, COVID-19 has undoubtedly impacted everything we do. The stresses that came with such an impactful situation have created a surge in mental health issues worldwide. There are many ways to curb these worries though – through exercise, eating healthy, sleeping well – you get the gist. One of the current wellness trends that have opened a world of new options towards holistic healing is CBD. Aiming to provide a natural, effective remedy to overcome anxieties, improve sleep and overall wellbeing, C-HEMP is a pioneer in the industry, offering quick solutions for long-term recovery. Here's what to expect from the Hong Kong-born brand...
C-HEMP founder Jessica Wong is an ex-actress and entrepreneur. Jessica suffered years of battling with Trichotillomania, also known as Trich, a disorder whereby someone cannot resist the urge to pull out their hair and is ridden with the anxiety that comes with it. “After seeing multiple doctors and taking different concoctions of mind-numbing anti-psychotics, I finally found CBD as my to-go solution. Last year was my second anniversary off anti-psychotics – both my psychiatrist and dermatologist were very impressed with my health journey!” Jessica Wong described.
In the same year, she partnered with her long-time friend and Harvard-trained epidemiologist, Doug Cheung who specialises in the clinical effectiveness of health interventions. He oversees C-HEMP’s product R&D and quality control. Together, the duo hopes to provide scientific, CBD-based solutions with the highest quality standard available for people with urban health issues including, sleep and mental health.
What is CBD and how can it help us?
CBD is often used to improve the overall health of the mind and body and has proved very popular in the United States and Europe, particularly over the last few years. The compound can be incorporated into daily work to maintain physical and mental balance and promote optimum performance. Cannabinoids act on one of the body’s most important self-regulating systems, the endocannabinoid system(ECS) which is responsible for a range of health functions including sleep, mood, appetite, memory, pain, immune system and the list goes on.
C-HEMP's products are among the first to be tested and certified by Hong Kong government-accredited laboratories. All of C-HEMP's products are dual-tested in the USA and HK, using only use naturally extracted broad-spectrum CBD; meaning it does not contain any trace amounts of THC in adherence to the city's legal requirements.
Each product contains other science-based natural herbal ingredients to provide additional health benefits to help you on your personal health journey. Due to the different properties of the plant and its terpenes, each product is specifically formulated to help cope with different types of urban health issues such as insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain and sensitive skin types.
A quick guide through C-HEMP PM Formula Products and tips on how-tos by Jessica Wong, the founder:
Jessica: “I personally like to use the UNWIND Sleep Oil to fix my sleeping hours whenever I start sleeping late (especially after the weekends!). Because it has Melatonin in it, it produces sleepiness within 30 mins and I just fall asleep (like a gentle knockout) with at least 5-6 hours of sleep, waking up the next morning feeling well-rested and not groggy.”
Jessica: “Unlike the UNWIND Sleep Oil, the RELAX Sleep Oil’s effect for sleepiness is not as immediate, hence it can be consumed during both daytime and nighttime. The CBDV ingredient is to enhance deep sleep when taken in the evening and is used for drug-free anxiety relief and as a mood booster throughout the day."
Jessica: “The Restore Face Cream is literally in my everyday routine! I use it day and night. It is suitable for sensitive skin types. The only difference is, on hot days, I apply a thinner layer and when it's cold or dehydrated I apply a thicker layer of the cream.”
Jessica: “My favourite way to use this REPAIR Intensive Night Cream is before and during menstruation – when I break out severely around my cheeks and chin. Due to its high potency in CBD and tea tree oil ingredient, it does its job best overnight.”
Jessica: “Our Hemptation Facial Masks can be used daily or at least three times a week. I always use it after a long day under the sun for accelerated healing and hydration.”
Jessica: “Thanks to its wonderful orange-lemon scent, I love to use this in the morning after my morning showers! Through applying it topically on my body, I am able to feel relaxed through bioavailability absorption – effects can be as strong as having a CBD coffee or an oil drip! I like to rub REFRESH Body Lotion on my arms and legs to let the lotion protect my skin from the sun during day time."
Jessica: “Due to its scents – rosemary and lavender, I like to use this CALM Body Lotion in the evening as lavender infused with CBD puts me into a tranquil mood for sleep! With this body lotion, I like to apply a bit on my chest for its lingering fragrance, which helps me sleep better. For people that aren't ready to orally consume CBD oil for sleep, rubbing lotions on the chest is also an alternative way.”
Jessica: “I USE THESE EVERYDAYYYYYY!! Depending on my skin condition (whether I've been to the beach that day or whether if my skin is acting up) I switch up the use of the soaps.
Coconut: Is moisturising, helps remove dead skin and dirt away from the body, reduces acne, firms your skin and is rich in antioxidants.
Eucalyptus: Increases skins barrier protection, inhibits the growth and removing bacteria, soothes skin irritation and helps reduces acne.
Bergamot: Is particularly good for oily skin. Bergamot helps unclog pores and balances the sebum levels. It can relieve cracks on the skin while also protecting skin against infections.”
150g | 100mg CBD | Vetiver and Marjoram / Lavender / Rosemary Cypress
Jessica: “We have three types of bath melts, SLEEP, CHILL and RECOVER. My favourite one would definitely be the RECOVER one! I mostly use it 3-4 times a month, after a long day, a workout or just for the sake of the weekend to pamper myself! It is one of the best staycation carry-ons to bring too!”
