Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is an active ingredient derived from the hemp plant. In recent years, this non-intoxicating cannabis extract has become increasingly popular – you can now find it in everything from essential oils to skincare products and even food.

Unlike the plant it's derived from, CBD is legal to sell and consume in Japan, as it doesn't have the psychoactive effects of cannabis. But proponents of CBD claim it can help alleviate stress, anxiety, aches and pains.

The trend is now catching on in Tokyo, with speciality shops and cafés popping up around town selling CBD as an added ingredient in edibles as well as topical treatments.
