Thank you to HempFusion for sending a basket of products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
How amazing, timing wise, to receive a basket of products from HempFusion just after my return from Scotland. Feeling a bit weary from a long day of travels and a bit stiff around the knees from sitting in airports and onboard planes, these hemp infused products looked promising.
I like to try out supplements for a period of time, before writing a review post. Therefore, I’ve used the products for the past month. That’s enough time to note changes or improvements. I’m ready to give my honest opinion.
The short truth is, it’s possible to enjoy better health with HempFusion.
HempFusion the Company
The company’s founders, Ian Dequeiroz, Dr. Jason Mitchell and Andrew Oliver, are energetic, highly motivated entrepreneurs with the desire to bring quality hemp products to the market.
The result? HempFusion is a leading US hemp-based CBD company that manufactures, markets and sells whole food hemp extract products in more than 3,400 retail locations across 47 states. Their product line is all natural, plant-based and built upon the extraordinary health benefits of proprietary Whole Food Hemp Complex™ derived from full-spectrum nutritional hemp. The company is dedicated to creating a global brand.
HempFusion uses eco-certified, premium organic hemp in their line, which currently includes 31 products.
Why Use Hemp Based CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, one of the cannabinoids in the hemp plant. The compound is not psychoactive in nature, meaning you won’t get “high” from using it. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and it is considered antioxidant and neuroprotectant, with many promising health benefits.
HempFusion offers “full spectrum” hemp extract products. This means they extract all nutrients from the hemp plant, not just the CBD. Full-spectrum extract contains vital terpenes and other phytocannabinoids along with vitamins and minerals. The result is a better supplement that supports the Endocannabinoid System in the body.
To experience better health with HempFusion, I needed to try the products. The company sent an assortment in a 100% hemp and cotton woven basket, made without chemicals. And the letter accompanying my care package is printed on recycled paper that is embedded with flower seeds. I can plant that sheet of paper and flowers will grow. How impressive. HempFusion had my respect and appreciation already!
I didn’t use two of the products. The Twist Liquid Dietary Supplement, in key lime flavor, contains fish oil. Due to my plant based lifestyle, I passed on it. And the My Little Bugs Probiotic for kids, in watermelon flavor, will go to children in my extended family to try out.
Better Health with HempFusion
Here are the products I did enjoy:
HempFusioin 5 mg CBD Hemp Extract Liquid
This tincture contains hemp extract, cloves and black pepper fruit in a base of virgin black cumin seed oil. It is rich in terpenes and omegas, to support the Endocannabinoid System. Plus it provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The product is non GMO and soy, gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs and shellfish free. It does not contain artificial colors, flavors or chemical processing aids.
Take one milliliter daily, using the convenient dropper included with the bottle.
This non GMO formula contains hemp, black pepper and clove oils plus CBD. Also included is a patented form of Ashwagandha for maximum stress relief and mood boosting properties.
Each capsule is soy, gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs and shellfish free. It does not contain artificial colors, flavors or chemical processing aids.
Take one capsule daily, with food.
I quit using over the counter or prescription sleep aids years ago. Occasionally, however, we all need help falling asleep. This product features PharmaGABA, a more natural form of the amino acid GABA. Clinical studies have demonstrated that it can play an important role in reducing occasional stress and promoting relaxation, which may facilitate restful sleep.
Each capsule contains CBD and hemp, black pepper and clove oils. The product is also non GMO and does not contain soy, gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs and shellfish free or artificial colors, flavors or chemical processing aids.
Take one capsule an hour, or less, before bedtime.
CBD Hemp Extract Cream and Balm
This soothing cream contains hemp extract CBD, terpenes, peppermint oil, MSM and magnesium oil in a rich aloe vera base. It is perfect for aching joints or muscles.
Apply the creamy lotion to clean, dry skin.
The balm contains hemp extract CBD, terpenes, peppermint oil, rosemary, carnauba wax and organic coconut oil in a jojoba and sunflower oil base. It too relieves pain and soothes joints and muscles.
Apply the balm to clean, dry skin.
Probulin Women’s Health Probiotic
I was not currently using a probiotic in my daily health routine, so I was excited to try this product. Created by Dr. Jason Mitchell, in collaboration with Dr. Shekhar Challa, author of Probiotics for Dummies, Probulin is touted as the “next generation of probiotics.”
Stress and lifestyle challenges such as diet, aging, medications, environment and alcohol consumption can all contribute to digestive imbalance of essential beneficial bacteria. Probulin Probiotic includes a patent pending delivery system called MAKTrek 3-D that ensures that the beneficial probiotic bacteria survive better in the body.
Each non GMO capsule contains 20 billion cfu (a unit of measurement for good bacteria and yeasts) that support digestive balance and health. The product does not contain soy, gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs and shellfish free or artificial colors, flavors or chemical processing aids.
Take one capsule daily, with or without food. For best results, take at bedtime.
My Results Using HempFusion Products
I’m experiencing great health and wellness, overall. However, I am always open to improving wellbeing and trying new products.
Cream and Balm
Arriving home after a long international flight, I first tried the hemp extract cream on stiff muscles in both legs. Because of years of inflammation, the muscles around my knees can tighten up easily, if I sit for long periods of time. I massaged the creamy lotion into muscles around both knees before bedtime, and noticed immediate improvement. I have gardening work coming up, as the season shifts to fall. I’ll definitely be using this cream again!
And, coincidently, a few days after I returned home, I “popped” my right thumb out of place. I got it back into place, however, the whole lower portion of my hand throbbed with pain and the joint felt weak. I used the balm, which is drier than the cream lotion. At night before bed and the next morning after a shower, I massaged the balm into the joint area of my right thumb. The pain lessened right away and within a few days the weakness in the joint healed as well. I love this product!
Liquid, Stress and Sleep
I’ve been taking the hemp extract liquid daily, and I feel calm yet energized throughout the day. Additionally, I’ve noticed a decrease in inflammation around that tricky left knee. In fact, my legs feel the best they have felt since January, when I injured the left knee in a fall. I use a dropperful of the oil under my tongue. The flavor is mild. I like it.
I rarely have what I consider a “stress filled” day any more. However, I’ve taken the Stress capsules several times. Again, I’ve noticed a calming effect that is greater, perhaps, than when I’m using the liquid alone.
And as for the Sleep capsules, they put me right out! I’ve only used them a few times, to see how effective they are. And believe me, they are effective. I take one as I am getting ready for bed…which takes about 15 minutes. And I’m asleep as soon as I lie down. The capsules don’t dry out my mouth, like other sleep aids I’ve taken, and the drowsiness doesn’t linger into the next day. I appreciate that very much!
I’ve especially appreciated this product. I have had digestive issues all my life and have an especially sensitive gut. Switching to a plant based diet has helped me so much. These probiotics seem to take my digestive health up a notch, and I didn’t even know that was possible. This product is not on the company website, however it’s available on Amazon. Click link at the end of the post.
I am very pleased with all of the products that HempFusion sent me. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to try them and experience better health with HempFusion. My intention is to continue using the products. Try them too, and experience greater health yourself!
