The rise in demand for CBD has exploded worldwide. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant – phytocannabinoids. This compound, together with other nutrient-dense compounds found in hemp, have become popularised for their natural therapeutic benefits, containing less than 0.3% THC. Hong Kong-born CBD brand Calmed & Co undergoes the full C02 extraction process to ensure that all products are THC-free to keep its focus on the non-psychoactive healing remedies of the plant. When Gianne Chan began suffering serious mental issues in 2013, she tried different methods to improve her wellbeing, including the integration of CBD in her lifestyle. In her journey, she found it to be one of the most efficient methods – plus it was 100% natural. Bringing CBD all the way from LA to HK, she started her own company to share her passion – Calmed & Co. Gianne speaks with us about her experience with the products and how Calmed & Co came to life to inspire those around her too.
