I’m a huge fashionista and I love shopping for new clothes and accessories. I sometimes feel guilty about my love of clothes, shoes and handbags. I know that buying clothes isn’t necessarily great for the environment so when I can, I look for clothes that are made with sustainable fabrics and materials like hemp. Hemp is a natural fiber product of the Cannabis sativa plant. Some of you may recognize the Cannabis portion of the plant as being the same as marijuana. Though the two plants are members of the same species, they have been bred to achieve different ends, and industrial hemp does not contain enough tetrahydrocannabinol to make it a psychoactive substance.
I know this simply because when I received the products from Stoner Couture, my son was there while I was opening the box. His eyes grew huge as he saw the cannabis leaf on the front of some of their designs. His first words… “Mom! You’ve got a pot leaf on your shirt!” This resulted in a rather lengthy (on my part) discussion about the differences between marijuana and hemp.
Stoner Couture offers a variety of clothing, accessories and other products like coffee, lip balm, and body and skin care. I received several products to review from their clothing line including a v-neck long sleeve tee, a sweater wrap and baseball caps.
The lip balm is available in three different flavors including coconut, citrus and menthol. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the hemp portion of the lip balm but honestly, there is no difference in taste at all. The citrus is my favorite. It goes on smoothly and keeps my lips soft and smooth. I love that they use essential oils for the fragrance.
The shirt and wrap that I received are super comfortable and soft. They fit well and even after washing looked amazing. I absolutely love the way this shirt feels! Many of their designs do have a hemp leaf on them although there are some without that on them as well. While you and I may know it’s a hemp leaf, you may get some raised eyebrows if you wear it to a PTO meeting or to work. You could use that opportunity as a valuable conversation starter about the benefits of hemp as a sustainable clothing choice.
