Turmeric Canyon Hemp Seed Soap by Mountain of YouthRead More
Mountain of Youth is a new handmade soap line from Soap-a-Dope. I’m becoming a real fan of artisan soap so I was excited to try their handmade soap with orange peel. It had a wonderful refreshing orange essence to it and left my skin feeling clean and moisturized. One of the things I love about Mountain of Youth is that their soaps change on a regular basis and they do a great job of keeping the online store updated. With staple ingredients like olive, coconut and hemp seed oils along with hemp milk you can rest assured that you are getting a chemical free clean in the shower. If you want to support local hemp and reduce your carbon footprint Mountain of Youth Artisan Soap is a great way to get started.

AloHemp Lotion by Mammoth Mountain HempRead More
reviewed by Caroline Hayes
What’s better than a hemp lotion to soothe your sun kissed summer skin? A hemp lotion that has aloe vera gel in it! Aloe has been proven to soothe burns as well as helping that tanned skin last longer. The ingredients of AloHemp Lotion (like in Aloha) includes an array of fantastic, moisturizing oils such as avocado, olive, apricot, jojoba, argan, sunflower, rose hip seed, almond as well as vitamin E. All of these fabulous oils combined makes this silky lotion smell a bit like key lime pie. Sometimes all natural lotions go on thin, making one feel like they need another application only a few hours later. AloHemp from Colorado’s Mammoth Mountain Hemp truly moisturizes all day long, which is exactly what everyone needs in the Rocky Mountains’ desert-like climate.

Soap-A-Dope.com Hand-Made SoapsRead More
reviewed by Monocle Man
These soaps are too cute! Soap-a-Dope is a Colorado-based novelty soap company. Each soap is hand-made with hemp oil, along with other soapy ingredients, and molded into squares with a cannabis leaf shape on the front. These bar soaps really make a statement in a guest bathroom. It says to your guest “Yeah, I support hemp and cannabis legalization but I also like my guest to wash their hands with fancy soaps.” They come in a variety of scents. I had the pleasure of trying Wake-n-Bake (Oatmeal, Milk and Honey) and Lemon Sour Diesel (Lemon Eucalyptus). Both scents smell delicious and will leave you feeling super clean. The Waken-Bake version has oats in the bar, great for sensitive skin or a light exfoliant. After using these soaps my skin felt soft, clean, and somewhat moisturized. The scent from the soap lingers on your skin for quite a while so everyone around you will also know how clean you are. Check out the fantastical soap variety at soap-a-dope.com.
Sore Muscle Hemp Salve by Nature's RootRead More
reviewed by Monocle Man
This local product contains hemp oil grown on their hemp farm here in Colorado! It is also free of parabens, dyes and synthetic fragrances, making it easy on sensitive skin.
The ingredient list is simple and pure, and all components are organic, vegan, eco-friendly and ethically sourced: Shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, Arnica-infused olive oil, Camphor (which helps to penetrate the muscles deeper), hemp-infused coconut oil, menthol crystals, emulsifying wax, and peppermint essential oil.
Simply apply a small amount to troubled area (avoiding eyes) and let it go to work. I first tried it on my sore neck and shoulder muscles, the root of all my pain. The salve is soft and goes on nicely. In just moments after applying, a nice cool feeling came over the area and I felt almost immediate relief. I also used the Sore Muscle Hemp Salve on a jammed finger that was causing me pain, which it also soothed.
Based on the ingredient list alone, I will buy this again, but it’s nice when a product just works. Check out www.naturesroot.com to see other wonderful products from this Colorado company.
Hemp Seed Oil Shampoo Bar by Nederland NaturalsRead More
reviewed by Monocle Man
I love to support local companies working with hemp. Nederland Naturals of course fits this bill perfectly. For this review I tried the Wild Indian Hemp Shampoo Bar. I was skeptical of getting a good lather for my hair with a bar of soap. It has actually been a bit of a pet peeve of mine when it comes to hemp shampoo that they don’t usually lather up that well, but not in this case. After working the bar in my hands for a moment a wonderful lush lather was present. The shampoo felt great in my hair and left it squeaky clean. I wasn’t sure if a conditioner was necessary so I went without to see how my hair would feel all day. Honestly I didn’t notice a difference in how it felt after three days. I don’t have them myself but on their blog it is mentioned that this is a great product for those with dread locks. Whether you are sporting the rasta-do or not, I highly recommend the shampoo bar. A local company using hemp and it’s a great product? Yes please!

HEMPCO CBD PAIN SALVERead More
reviewed by Christianna Lewis-Brown
We have reviewed a couple of Hempco products in the past and our staff was impressed with the quality and effectiveness of those products. So we went into this review with high expectations and we were not disappointed. The CBD Pain Relief Salve is made of all natural and some organic ingredients, and each stick contains 20mg of active CBD, CBDA derived from hemp. The packaging is very handy for a pain salve. It comes in a clear, cylindrical dispensing container with a screw top lid, similar to a deodorant stick.
It was very convenient to use, you just rub the stick on the affected area. Pain salves I have used in the past came in a tub and you had to dig your fingers in to apply the salve. This is problematic if you don’t get it washed off all of the way. Have you ever rubbed your eyes after using topical pain relievers? Ouch! Not with Hempco. To be fair, you might have to rub it in a bit but at least it won’t get under your fingernails.
Upon first application, there is a cooling sensation that lingers for a bit. I did notice some relief in my joint pain after the first use but it really works its magic if you reapply it throughout the day. The pain was less and less after each application. Another win for Hempco! This and their other products are available for purchase on their website, cbdriven.com.
