Hemp-Derived Wellness and Beauty Brand, Element Apothec, Enters Southeast Asian Market

Element Apothec partners with Thai luxury resort, The Beach Samui, to integrate cannabinoid-infused products into the resort experience

Woodland Hills, California--(Newsfile Corp. - November 29, 2022) - Element Apothec, an award-winning wellness and beauty company, has announced its official partnership with The Beach Samui, a luxury boutique hotel on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, becoming one of the first US-based hemp-derived wellness and beauty brands to enter the Southeast Asian market.

Thailand was the first country in Asia to legalize the growth and trade of cannabis, with decriminalization occurring earlier this year, and The Beach Samui is the first licensed Boutique Hotel & Herbal Dispensary in Southeast Asia.

Element Apothec has been working with The Beach Samui team over the last several months in preparation for legalization. The Element Apothec team, including pharmacists and other medical professionals, is providing fundamental cannabis education and product development services, which include guiding patient consults and developing educational programs for both guests and on-site pharmacists on the latest cannabinoid research. The Beach Samui employs two registered Herbal Pharmacists trained under the Department for Development of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine by the Ministry of Public Health, Thailand.

Element Apothec products will be integrated throughout the resort in a variety of healing rituals and retreat experiences, including meditation and culinary experiences under the guidance of trained Herbal Pharmacists. The resort's cannabis retail location, The Herbalist at The Beach Samui, provides a variety of hemp and cannabis products including Element Apothec tinctures and topicals.

"We are honored to bring Element Apothec to the Asian market. Partnering with The Beach Samui in Thailand allows us to provide our hemp-infused beauty and wellness products in the ultimate location for relaxation and healing," said Davina Kaonohi, Founder and CEO of Element Apothec. "We do not take this responsibility lightly, and we are doing everything we can to ensure The Beach Samui can provide the optimal hemp and cannabis experience."

The Beach Samui Founder and CEO, Bryan Lunt, says, "We have found the ideal partner in Element Apothec to bring the ultimate in plant-powered wellness and beauty products to The Beach Samui. Their doctor-formulated products offer the highest quality that our customers expect, and we are excited to offer a variety of new wellness services to our customers."
