Nature’s Root Hemp Company – Longmont, CO
Nature’s Root is a hemp company with a passion for producing sustainably sourced, high-quality skin care and health products. Based out of Longmont, Colorado, they’re the pioneers of the first entirely hemp-based spa. Everything in the store, from the massage oil, linens and robes to the check-in counter, is made out of hemp. They’re actually in the process of expanding to a larger space to facilitate more spa services; the current location will remain a storefront for their products, as well as their headquarters. Nature’s Root is owned and operated by Tracee Box and her daughter Dani Billings. Box has an extensive background in product and business development and a passion for health and wellness. Billings is not only the face of the business but also one of the most sought-after hemp speakers and advocates in the world. Together, they’ve launched a movement that is slowly but surely growing on a global scale.
Nature’s Root sources hemp oil for their products from Billings’ other brainchild, the Colorado Hemp Project. More than 100 acres of gorgeous hemp fields grow abundantly on their farms … if you didn’t know any better, you would probably think you were standing in fields of smokeable cannabis. Did you know that hemp plants absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide — about 120,000 pounds of CO2 per acre annually? No wonder the air smells so clean in their garden, even with the horses next door.
The foundation of their garden boils down to a single factor: genetics. Nature’s Root derives their hemp oil from some of the best genetics in the CBD industry. Colorado Hemp Project’s sister company, High Grade Hemp, is curated by seed and genetics specialist Bodhi Urban, whose CBD strains are unparalleled and in high demand year-round. His signature strains include Berry Blossom, Chardonnay, Cherry Wine, Cobbler and Trophy Wife — all of which are proven not to yield over the federally-regulated 0.3 percent THC threshold. Levels of CBD in these strains vary from about 12-25 percent. Nature’s Root products have won multiple awards, including “Best Hemp Company” from the Cannabis Business Awards and “Best Hemp Product” from High Times Jamaica. They’re definitely on to something special.
