The consistency of this salve makes application easy and luxurious, with an herbaceous aroma that absorbs seamlessly into the skin.

The hemp industry is taking the topical market by storm, but not all hemp topicals are created equal. Straight Hemp Healing Hemp Salve is both rich in native hemp terpenes and CBD, and also contains arnica and camphor to naturally reduce swelling and irritation. The consistency of this salve makes application easy and luxurious, with an herbaceous aroma that absorbs seamlessly into the skin.

PACKAGING
(4/5) I love the convenient five gram (or travel-size) packaging that slips easily into your purse, fanny-pack or what-have-you. It comes in a small glass jar similar to what dabs or rosin might be packaged in, with a simple, unbleached label.

AROMA
(4/5) Strong, but tempered herbaceous notes are detected upon application. Subtle notes of ginger and myrrh come through warming the palate. It’s musky, but doesn’t overwhelm.

APPLICATION
(5/5) I appreciate beeswax-based topicals because the application is smooth and absorbs into the skin like a dream. Both almond and hemp oil are used, giving the salve a velvety feel unlike hard, untempered balms. The consistency is perfect for unfussy application.

EFFECTS
(5/5) As we move into the winter season, this salve is perfect for chapped hands and skin. The beeswax formula coats your paws without becoming greasy. The CBD and arnica combo reduces redness and inflammation, and the salve works wonders on sore muscles. The consistency is very smooth and works excellent for CBD-infused massage. I appreciate brands that go beyond simple hemp-derived CBD, and do the research to include other terpenes that facilitate recovery.

VALUE
(5/5) Straight Hemp Salve is affordable and packs a whopping 115mg of CBD in a five gram jar. And at just $22, it is a deal in a market where topicals can easily start at $40 and up. Not only is this product accessible and affordable, it doesn’t skimp on CBD or terpenes either.
