Hemp & Hand believes in making sustainable hemp based personal care products that are good for you and good for the environment. They bring healthy compounds and sweet-smelling hemp terpenes into everyday essentials like sanitizers, deodorants, lip balms, gummies, and candles. The result is more eco-friendly products that smell great and uplift your mood.

Founding Story

Hemp & Hand was founded June, 2020, by a group of friends who have built startups together since 2006. While the Covid-19 pandemic brought chaos and uncertainty, it also brought an opportunity to get the band back together again!

The team began researching to find meaningful problems to solve for consumers. A few weeks later, Hemp & Hand was born with the mission to create the highest quality products that promote good health and spread good vibes.
