Treaty CBD Oils I TA

Treaty CBD Oils I TA

Treaty: Calm, Focus, Balance

CBD type: Broad spectrum
CBD potency: Calm (1,200mg/bottle, 20mg/dose), Focus (600mg/bottle, 10mg/dose), Balance (900mg/bottle, 15mg/dose)
Price: Calm ($1,350) Focus ($1,350) Balance ($850)

What it is: Hemp oil enhanced with plant extracts

What it does: Help users be calm, find focus, and regulate imbalances throughout the body

Who it’s for: Calm is for people who are anxious or stressed; Focus is for busy people always working in frenetic phase and needs mental clarity and mindfulness; and Balance is best for beginners who want to incorporate CBD in their life

Why we love it: It does what it promises. Calm gives you a sense of tranquillity after a few seconds it melts under your tongue, but we recommend to use it best during bedtime as it helps you relax especially when you find it hard to switch off. Balance helps ease feelings of anxiety, though being that it doesn’t have any add-on ingredients, the CBD’s vegetal and earthy flavour is very prominent. And, so far out of the three products, Focus is our favourite. It’s a good booster for a frantic day, especially for days when you need mental clarity for an overactive brain. And it doesn’t taste bad compared to other CBD oils – it’s nutty and minty, and a bit zesty. The full product range can also be used altogether as long as you take it in intervals of six to eight hours between formulas.

Treaty CBD Oils I TA

Life Pure CBD I TA

Life Pure CBD

CBD type: Isolate
CBD potency: 600 mg/bottle, 20mg/dose
Price: $660

What it is:  Easy-mix water-soluble CBD

What it does: A perfect ingredient to add to food, juices, coffee, kombucha, and alcoholic drinks

Who it’s for: For people who hate the taste of CBD oils and want to incorporate CBD in their daily food and drink

Why we love it: It mixes well with anything you want to eat or drink! So far we have tried it on water, for when you’re going on walks or run; it’s anti-inflammatory so small dosing while you’re exhausting your body helps your muscles heal and recover faster. It’s also great with kombucha – for days when you need a digestive boost. And our favourite: it mixes well with cocktails as it relieves the feeling of intoxication. But it may depend on the person, so it may not have the same result for others. CBD may reduce some side effects from alcohol, while for some, it may amplify the effects, so it is best to approach with caution.

Available in Found CBD shop and cafe. 

Saint Jane C-Drops

Saint Jane C-Drops I TA

Saint Jane C-Drops

CBD type: Broad spectrum (whole plant but with zero percent THC)
CBD potency: 500mg of full spectrum in 30ml bottle
Price: $900

What it does: Helps brighten skin

Who it’s for: For people who want to boost their skin’s radiance. Perfect for combination skin with minimal discolouration

Why we love it: It’s very lightweight and smells good on the skin. Perfect to use as part of your morning beauty regimen as its citrus notes perks you up a little. And since it gets easily absorbed, it’s great to use under your moisturiser and sunscreen. After using it for a couple of weeks, you’ll notice that your skin looks glowing.

Shop CBD products in Hong Kong: Top 10 CBD shop list in HK

Get schooled on where to shop CBD products in Hong Kong. It’s the latest trend we’re loving.

With a growing demand for CBD across the globe, we decided to have a look at what CBD actually is, and where to shop CBD products in Hong Kong.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD), an active ingredient in Cannabis (marijuana), is extracted from hemp plants. While a lot of people think that CBD is the same as marijuana, they are essentially different substances. Unlike marijuana, CBD does not make people “high” and there is no evidence of potential abuse, according to the World Health Organisation. Some proven benefits of CBD include muscle pain relief, anxiety reduction, anti-acne and cancer treatment. On the other hand, depression, dizziness and low blood pressure are possible side effects, although they are rarely reported by CBD users.

Is CBD legal in Hong Kong?

At the moment, CBD is legal in Hong Kong as it is not prohibited under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance. Local CBD sellers have to obtain a related license from the government and prove their products to be THC free.

Where to shop CBD products in Hong Kong?

The emergence of vapes in thousands of offline convenience stores

In November 2019, about 1 month ago, it’s hard to find vapes in offline convenience stores, maybe 1 in 10 shops. Now 1 month later in December, even the 80-year-old grandma shopkeeper who knows nothing about vapes and doesn‘t welcome new things, starts selling them in Shenzhen now. The vape brand offline expansion speed is fast and furious. How hard-working these China vape brands are!

e-cigarette brand has experienced a round of reshuffle and transferred to offline channels.

After thorough observation and investigation, we found most vapes in small or chain convenience stores like 7 Seven, Meiyijia and Chongye Aimin, etc, are disposable, one-off and pod type. Their prices are between 39 yuan to 49 yuan, which are affordable to most traditional smokers. Meanwhile, according to our real test, no matter throat hit, nicotine strength or flavor, those disposable’ vaping experience is not inferior to any pod system or mod vape. Those disposable vapes are foolproof, convenient and instant, which is user-friendly and of high quality. What’s more, most stores have over 10 flavors in stock, great for choosing the one you like. Highly recommended to Hong Kong friends.

How to find convenience stores that sell vapes?

Convenience shops in Shenzhen are almost everywhere. Choose a few randomly and you’ll see.

 

Where to buy a cheaper but decent vape in Shenzhen

The offline shop experience is essential to many novel vapers, and they only buy after they try. That’s reasonable and rational.

However, it won’t be a wise move if you keep buying from the offline stores because offline vape brand official shops often have a 10% higher price compared to buying from the brand agents and dealers, because brands have to pay the extremely high shopping mall entrance fee, the rent and staff wage.

When you want a better price experience with the same vape, contact VAPE.HK, please. We have lots of agents providing the authentic products you need at a lower price.

China Tobacco Hong Kong stock price rose 300% since its debute

The share price of China Tobacco Hong Kong has soared more than 300% since listing

Public information shows that China Tobacco Hong Kong is the designated overseas platform for China Tobacco International to be responsible for capital market operation and international business development, while China Tobacco International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Tobacco Corporation, responsible for the management and operation of China Tobacco Corporation’s international business, and China Tobacco Corporation (CNTC) group is the only one in China to engage in tobacco monopoly products according to the national tobacco monopoly system Entities engaged in production, sales and import and export business.

China Tobacco Hong Kong stock price rose 300% since its debute
TAX added. 10 more yuan needed

And China Tobacco is the most profitable company in China.

In 2018, China Tobacco achieved a total tax profit of 1155.62 billion yuan, almost 19 times that of Alibaba, 15 times that of Tencent and 4 times that of ICBC in the same period. Even in the world, it’s hard for any company to catch up. After all, Apple, the iPhone manufacturer everyone loves to use, has only a third of the profits of China tobacco.

China Tobacco Hong Kong and China Tobacco are in the same line, which is the grandson of the former. China Tobacco International holds shares of China Tobacco Hong Kong through Tianli international, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China tobacco. On August 16, Tianli international changed its name to China Tobacco International Group Co., Ltd., but it did not involve any change in the equity ratio. The controlling shareholder still holds 72.29% of the equity of China Tobacco Hong Kong (after the implementation of the over allotment equity).

On June 12 this year, China Tobacco Hong Kong was listed on the main board of the Hong Kong stock exchange, becoming the “first tobacco stock” of Hong Kong stock market. As of September 30, the share price closed at HK $20.0, more than 300% higher than the issue price of HK $4.88, and even reached 484% at the peak, becoming the new stock with the highest increase in the first half of Hong Kong market. As of today’s close, the share price has soared 307.79% in the past five months since its listing.

China Tobacco Hong Kong stock price rose 300% since its debute

It is worth noting that, according to the prospectus, as of the end of 2018, China Tobacco Hong Kong had only 28 employees in Hong Kong, including 5 senior managers. The total cost of employees is about 25.914 million Hong Kong dollars, and the average annual salary is nearly one million Hong Kong dollars. In terms of operating revenue of HK $7.033 billion, the per capita operating revenue is more than HK $250 million.

On August 26, China Tobacco Hong Kong announced its first mid-term results after listing. In the first half of the year, its revenue decreased by 2.9% to HK $3.931 billion year on year; its gross profit decreased by 24.12% to HK $185 million year on year; its profit attributable to equity holders decreased by 29.6% to HK $130 million.

China Tobacco Hong Kong stock price rose 300% since its debute

China Tobacco Hong Kong may benefit from the coming of e-cigarette national standard

On September 20, Wal Mart announced that all stores in the United States would stop selling e-cigarettes. The EU also promised to complete the scientific review of e-cigarettes by 2021, providing a new basis for updating the current measures. India has taken a tougher approach, with the government saying it will issue a law banning the production, import and export, sales and advertising of e-cigarettes.

At present, electronic cigarettes have been banned in Japan, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, Thailand, Brazil and other countries or regions. China is the place of invention and main production of e-cigarettes. More than 90% of the world’s e-cigarettes are produced in China, but China’s regulation of e-cigarettes is still blank.

Top vape stores in Hong Kong – 2019 latest list

Verdict

You may ask why so many Hong Kong vape shops closed, here is one reason but all the reasons:

Electronic cigarette ban and Sino-US trade war bankrupt Hong Kong’s vape transit industry

You need to ask the local shop for more details when you’re in Hong Kong.

Industry analysts believe that relying on more than 300 million smokers in the completely monopolistic business, China Tobacco has a strong bargaining power on the upstream and downstream supply chains, so that China Tobacco Hong Kong has an obvious and strong competitive advantage.

The prospectus shows that China Tobacco Hong Kong is the designated overseas platform for China Tobacco International in charge of capital operation and international business development. China Tobacco International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Tobacco International. It undertakes the management and operation of China Tobacco International Company by organizing trade in tobacco products, supervising the operation of overseas subsidiaries and overseas investment of China Tobacco International Company.

China Tobacco is the only entity in China that engages in the production, sale and import and export of monopoly tobacco products according to the national tobacco monopoly system.

“We are the sole operating entity in the business we are currently engaged in,” China Tobacco Hong Kong denoted when talking about its “competitive advantage” in its prospectus. “We have the strong bargaining power to suppliers, customers and sufficient cash flow.”

According to Li Yunyi, an international analyst at Anxin, China has the largest number of smokers in the world, with 306 million people in 2018 and 144.5 billion yuan in cigarette sales, accounting for 44.6% of global cigarette consumption. With the increasing disposable income of residents, the consumption of high-end tobacco products in China is increasing, which promotes the upgrading of consumption of tobacco products and optimizes the structure of the tobacco market.

Zhongtai International said that only China Tobacco Monopoly Corporation and its affiliated companies are currently eligible to monopolize the tobacco trade in China under the restrictions of the national tobacco monopoly system. Although tobacco control campaigns have been strengthened around the world in recent years, the number of smokers is huge and demand for tabacco is rigid. What’s more, the monopoly position of China Tobacco is stable, so there is no market competition in the short term.

 

The 28 employees generate more than 250 million yuan profits per capita, with an average annual salary of nearly one million yuan.

At present, China Tobacco Hong Kong enjoys the exclusive right to operate in four major businesses: import of tobacco products, export of tobacco products, export of cigarettes and export of new tobacco products including vapes. Although similar to the nature of the business of controlling shareholders, the business of the company still has monopoly attributes because of the separation of geographical location, .

The prospectus shows that from 2016 to 2018, China Tobacco’s revenue in Hong Kong was HK$6.610 billion, HK$7.807 billion and HK$7.033 billion respectively, while net profit in the past three years was HK$338 million, HK$348 million and HK$262 million respectively.

China tobacco international company hong kong profits

Although China Tobacco Hong Kong’s total revenue and net profit declined in 2018, it was disclosed that this was not due to operational problems. Among them, the decline in income is caused by the accounting treatment of related items in the import and export business of tobacco products; and the decline in net profit is due to the lower limit of cigarette price stipulated in document 250, which came into effect in 2018, resulting in the reduction of the profit margin of the cigarette export business of the company.

Analysts believe that in the future, China Tobacco Hong Kong with no competitor will usher in several times of good profits in the industry, and its performance recovery is very likely.

Surprisingly, China Tobacco Hong Kong, which had an annual income of 7.033 billion and a net profit of HK$262 million last year, had only 28 employees in Hong Kong.

According to the prospectus, by the end of 2018, China Tobacco Hong Kong had only 28 employees in Hong Kong, China, including 5 senior managers, 12 business operators, 3 human resources, 1 securities and investor relationship, 4 financials, 1 compliance and risk management, and 2 strategic and investment employees.

In terms of revenue and net profit in 2018, these 28 employees in Hong Kong earned HK$250 million per capita in mid-2018 and realized net profit of nearly HK$10 million. The total cost of employees is only about HK$25.914 million, with an average annual salary of nearly HK$1 million.
