Touchstone Essentials Boosts Growth In Japan With Early CBD Success

Japanese regulators granted global direct selling organization, Touchstone Essentials, approval to sell its full spectrum, CBD-rich THC-free hemp oil product line, and the response has been extremely positive.

Founder and CEO, Eddie Stone says,

“Japan continues to be an important, growing member of the Touchstone Essentials global distribution channel. We are honored that the Japanese regulatory agencies granted us approval to ship our organically-grown CBD Oil directly to customers throughout Japan.”

One defining aspect of Touchstone Essentials is its commitment to product quality. Their premium hemp oil is produced using organically grown hemp, and retains a full spectrum of terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids. Research indicates these compounds offer a variety of whole-body benefits, including calming and soothing the effects of temporary inflammation, discomfort and stress, while supporting restful sleep.

 “We have the finest strains of hemp, all non-GMO, organically grown in the USA,” says Stone. “We use the latest technology in extracting these precious compounds that ensures a clean, toxin-free oil. The Calm Premium Hemp Oil line is also THC-Free, and we use a unique nano-emulsification technology, making it ultra-absorbable.”

Stone believes their unyielding attention to quality is a major reason for the product’s success, coupled with the timing of rapidly growing interest in CBD by consumers around the globe. This growth is further aided by Japan’s early adoption of CBD, where its sale was legalized starting in 2016, so long as the oil is free of THC. Stone says,

“Since our Calm Premium Hemp Oil line is THC-free we were ready to jump right into the Japanese market, and we’ve been thrilled with our customers’ response. We’re excited to see what comes as we continue to grow in Japan.”

The company’s initial offerings, Calm Premium Hemp Oil (750mg) and Soothe Topical Hemp Balm (600mg) were recently joined by two additional strengths in the tincture line: Calm Premium Hemp Oil (1500mg) and Calm Premium Hemp Oil (3000mg), expanding to four the number of THC-free CBD oil products shipping to Japan.

“The additional strengths allow for consumers to pick the level of CBD for their needs. And consumer demand for options is growing,” says Stone. “The world is ready for it and wants it.


Market analysis by the Brightfield Group projects that the hemp industry will grow to $22 billion by 2022, and Japan is projected to be a significant part of that growth. We are ready to meet that growing demand around the world.”
