What is CBD?

An abbreviation for "cannabidiol," one of hundreds of compounds found in hemp, called "cannabinoid."


It is a safe ingredient that has been recognized by the WHO as having no addictive or psychoactive effects.

It has been shown to act on the End Cannabinoid System (ECS), natural regulatory function present in the cells of living organisms , and normalize a variety of internal disorders. It is also attracting growing interest in the medical and beauty fields as it may have the effect of normalizing the autonomic nervous system and skin.

Research into the potential of CBD is progressing daily around the world, and efforts are underway in Japan to certify anti-epileptic drugs that contain CBD as an active ingredient.

Quality of our CBD

According to Japanese law, only the mature stems and seeds of hemp are legal to use, but at the time (around 2015), extraction and processing plants in various countries did not have separate production lines for each part of the hemp plant, which meant that production could not be carried out in accordance with the law.


At Kitchodo, the CEO himself went to the site to strengthen the guidance and management system, and succeeded in securing a production line for Japan.

The raw materials are extracted from only mature stems of ‘hemp’ at affiliated farms and CBD raw material extraction plants in Switzerland and the USA, and are imported directly from the supplier with Kitchodo's own standard of more than 99% purity, with each production lot tested for NO THC and confirmed by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare's Drug Enforcement Department.

In order to ensure the quality, we regularly visit the suppliers and maintain a strict quality control system.
