Hong Kong Declares Equates CBD to Heroin
There are very few regulation laws regarding CBD oil and CBD products in the United States. This makes for a lot of confusion with knowing the quality of CBD in a product and how much CBD is in it. However, there is the freedom to consume CBD products, and there are many reputable distributors.
On the other hand, Hong Kong has stepped up its laws restricting CBD use. At the beginning of February, Hong Kong criminalized the consumption and distribution of CBD oil. It has now been equated with heroin and cocaine.
CBD is a substance found in the cannabis plant. Many CBD users claim it helps with stress, pain, anxiety, depression, and more. Hong Kong disagrees, stating it lacks authoritative scientific proof. Hong Kong claims that CBD can be turned into the more toxic substance THC. THC is already illegal in Hong Kong.
The penalties for association with CBD include:
- Life imprisonment and a fine of up to HK$5 million ($638,000) for importing, exporting, or manufacturing CBD
- Seven years in prison and a HK$1 million ($128,000) fine for possession or consumption of CBD
Even though there is the freedom to consume CBD products in the U.S., these products should still be taken with caution and ideally under supervision from your physician.
