Hey, guys! I want to have a chat. Last year was a bitch, and this year seems to have its own vendetta against us. Due to all that stress, our bodies and minds have been put through the wringer. If you have sleep issues, muscle and joint paid, or trouble relaxing your body or your mind, then this subscription box just might be the thing that you need. This is the Hemp Crate box, and it is here to make you feel more at ease.
We want to send a big thank you to Hemp Crate Co. for sending this box to us to review for you. Even though this box was sent to me, I was not paid for this review, and all opinions on the box, the items and the use of hemp and CBD oil are all my own. Let’s break down what was inside.
When you first open the box, you are met with some ads, some codes and some information on what was in there. I do wish there was an itemized list of what was inside, but there wasn’t one in this box.
First up is a 400mg CBD oil soap made by Muddy Boot Botanicals. This lemony fresh soap will make you feel squeaky clean while treating your skin and muscles with the CBD oil inside of it. This does leave a freshly washed feeling on your skin. I use this when my muscles are feeling extra achy. It leaves you smelling super clean to boot.
Also included is the Hemp Crate box is wee little tub of balm by CBD Living. It smells like eucalyptus or tea tree oil and feels smooth. I looked on the website, and I don’t see this particular balm, but I do see other items by CBD Living.
Next out of the Hemp Crate is something I never have seen before. It is a massage candle by Muddy Boot Botanicals. At first thought, I figured it was a candle that you burn during a massage which is NOT what it is. Nay nay. You burn this candle and then use the melted wax as a massage balm! This has 1,000 mg of CBD oil in it and smells like you just walked into a coffee shop. You can also use the hardened wax as a balm in itself. I think that is such a neat idea to utilize massage balm in a candle form.
Next up is my favorite item from the Hemp Crate, the Royal and Pure Full Spectrum CBD oil and Melatonin Tincture for sleep. I have the hardest time falling asleep and most nights staying asleep. This peppermint-flavored oil swooped in to help. At night, I put one droplet full under my tongue for 30 seconds and then swallow and within 30 minutes, I am out and sleep through the night. I honestly didn’t expect it to work and was shocked when I finally got a night of sleep. The flavor wasn’t bad at all, and with 1000 mg of CBD oil in it, it was really effective. If you are unsure about using a tincture for sleep, consult your doctor first just to be sure.
Next out were some packs of mixes and dietary supplements. One is a CBD based energy drink mix and the other is a superfood hydration dietary supplement mix. I am not a personal fan of dietary supplements, but I do use a lot of drink mixes. If you are needing an easy way to get a boost in hydration or a burst of energy, mixes are a great convenient and compact way to do that.
I am a firm believer in CBD oil-based muscle creams. When I was standing at work a lot, I would suffer from intense pain in my feet, and creams like this were the only thing that stopped the aching. If you find yourself with pain in your shoulders and neck from bending over a computer screen all day, then this could be beneficial to you as well. This is a Spire brand full body muscle cream with 750mg of CBD.
The last item in the Hemp Crate is this canned energy drink by Mello Drop. This drink has BCAA, creatine, and electrolytes to hydrate while giving you a burst of energy. I have tried CBD drinks in the past, and I find that they have a strong bitter taste. If that isn’t a big concern for you, then having an energy drink like this is a great item to keep in your refrigerator.
That is all in this Hemp Crate box, and I was pleasantly surprised. I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but I definitely found some favorite items in there. The muscle cream, the tincture, the soap, and the candle will get used regularly, and I loved the diversity of the items inside. While I am not a big fan of the drinkables, there are many who regularly use these mixes and drinks as part of their daily routine, and this is a great way to try new brands.
