JungmavenNew at Jungmaven are the 100% hemp duvet cover, sheets (top and bottom) and pillow cases. Jungmaven hemp woven sheets are soft out of the box and get softer with each wash.  We love the weight of a single top sheet in the summer and the softness underneath a down comforter in cooler months.

Doug Fine: Doug Fine, author of Hemp Bound and HIA member since 2014, tells us his Family Green Vermont Hemp is finishing bottling its first round of a delightful farm-pressed Hemp in Hemp product. A hair and skin conditioner, muscle rub, and massage oil, each 100 ml bottle is made entirely from The Family Green’s farm-pressed Vermont hemp seed oil infused with its flowers.Doug warns that even a single application may cause soothing of your sweetheart’s shoulders. “I use a tablespoon in the bath,” Fine says. “Softens my skin and relaxes me after a long day of goat ranching.” Look for product release announcement on Twitter @organiccowboy. And as Hemp Bound approaches its third anniversary of publication on 4-20-14, its message remains as valuable as ever: launching a hemp industry is hard work, but the payoff for earth and community is worth it. Catch Doug at live events around the world.

We vigorously attempt to provide current information and share the vast amount of benefits this incredible plant can provide. From giving new life to our rural family farmers, creating thousands of jobs, improving the lives of countless medical patients, enhancing economies world-wide, food, fuel and fiber; the ever-evolving attributes, too long to list.
