MESA COUNTY, Colo. – Colorado’s own industrial hemp is making an appearance in local lavender products. Mesa Lavender Farms uses the lavender from High Altitude Lavender Farms. Now, they are combining of CBD and local lavender into several new products.
The two companies make a wide range of products, including essential oils and lotions. Lavender has it’s own set of benefits, according to those with the farm. “It can also be used for headaches, by rubbing a little bit here and the back of the neck, migraines, it’s also anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial,” said Dr. Curtis Swift of High Altitude Lavender.
The newest additions to their products have CBD added to them. CBD is derived from industrial hemp, and it does not have any psychoactive effect. The Food and Drug Administration recently approved CBD for certain kinds of epilepsy.
Some of those with the farms have been testing the CBD products. “I saw such a phenomenal change in how I felt every day, I felt more energetic, I lost some weight, I feel better physically, even mentally,” said Kate Keaney, the creative director for Mesa Lavender Farms.
The distillation of their lavender just started this week, and they use three different kinds of the plant.
Mesa Lavender Farms products can be found at different festivals and some farmer’s markets. You can also contact them directly to have some delivered right to your door.
