Evo Hemp: 60-Second Summary
Boulder, Colorado-based Evo Hemp seems to have taken the mountain community’s famous hippie ethos to heart. The company is very involved in its mission to help create a more sustainable CBD oil market through the sustainable cultivation of hemp, on both an environmental and economic level. And it partners with the nearby Lakota Native American tribe to help it achieve those aims. The quality of the hemp farming seems up to snuff to us, as well, but we’d like to see just a bit more from them when it comes to providing up-to-date lab reports on their cannabidiol.
Evo Hemp Brand Review
By all appearances, Evo Hemp is interested in helping the world of cannabidiol and hemp production grow as sustainably and naturally as the hemp itself.
The company grows its industrial hemp in tandem with the Lakota Native American tribe of the Pine Ridge Reservation in Colorado, allowing Evo Hemp to help “introduce an old crop to a new market,” and provide a lucrative opportunity to a traditionally underserved area. The growing program the company has established with the tribe allows farmers to “make a significant income on a small amount of acreage,” the company says, with industrial hemp yielding up to 4-times more than a crop of soy, wheat, or corn.
We applaud these community-focused efforts, as well as the dedication to certified organic growing practices the company employs. We also appreciate that Evo Hemp includes third-party lab test results on their site, though only one batch we found was tested for contaminants. The remaining results point to cannabidiol purity only, and some of the Certificates of Analysis (CoAs) are what we would consider to be outdated, which, unfortunately, means we can’t designate our prestigious safety badge.
Still, the shop is diverse, offering a wide range of CBD-based products, from full-spectrum CBD oil tinctures and CBD capsules to a number of hemp-based edibles, including hemp bars, hemp seeds, hemp protein powders and hempseed cooking oil.
Tinctures go for $80 each and CBD capsules at $35 a bottle, though each can also be sold in 4-packs. Ingredients lists are minimal, and all-natural.
The company’s edibles (with the exception of the CBD capsules, which are made with gelatin) all carry ingredients lists that live up to Evo Hemp’s promise of raw, vegan, soy- and gluten-free, paleo-friendly, kosher, and certified organic/non-GMO products. Its bars sound like a healthy eater’s dream, full of yummy and all-natural items, and cost $28 for a box of 12. Hemp powders sell for anywhere from $10 to $25 while the versatile hempseed oil retails at $10.
Consumers should know, however, that while all of the edibles include hemp, they do not include CBD oil.
Bottom line: Evo Hemp has a good mission, and the company seems truly dedicated to it, earning our mission and charity badges. And their solid hemp growing and CBD extraction practices have earned them our quality badge. But we wish they’d be just a bit more on top of their lab testing paperwork, offering more up-to-date reports not just on the purity of their CBD oil but on the contamination status of all their cannabidiol products. A slight tweak in the future could easily see them sporting our safety badge, too.
