Product Review: Harvey’s All Naturals

Company: Harvey’s All Naturals

What Makes This Brand Unique: Harvey’s All Naturals was founded in 2015 by, well, Harvey! Born and educated in Massachusetts, Harvey relocated to a patch of land in Colorado after receiving his BS in Mechanical Engineering from UMass Amherst. That’s where he began farming hemp.

Harvey doesn’t do it like the other up-and-coming farmers of his time. He’s devoted to 100% natural and organic farming practices. That means swapping out pesticides for over 20,000 species of anti-pest insects and beneficial microorganisms for insect and disease control.

It also means not “farming out” his services to large-scale commercial farms that simply don’t have the capacity to grow hemp to Harvey’s standards. Instead, Harvey partners with other local small farms in Colorado so he can ensure the highest quality chemical-free CBD hemp.

We got to sample Harvey’s CBD tincture and healing salve. Let’s see how they performed.

Harvey’s CBD Elixir (500mg, 15ml) Review

What makes this brand so cool is its simplicity. It’s the story of a humble engineer-turned-farmer in the serene mountains of Colorado. This very chill vibe is reflected in the elegant minimalistic design shared across Harvey’s products.

The CBD elixir came to me in a small amber bottle, perfect for tossing in my backpack and hitting the road. A glossy white label displays Harvey’s mountain logo, giving this little medicine bottle an old-timey feel.

Why such a tiny bottle for the price of a typical 30ml bottle? It’s no rip-off. This CBD tincture is just highly concentrated. Instead of taking a dropperful, you only need 4 – 8 drops per dose.

Harvey’s accomplishes this by cold processing their hemp. The company grows for terpenes and collects all the secondary cannabinoids that come with them. After cold processing, a technique that loses fewer cannabinoids than other methods of extraction, the full spectrum concentrate is infused with grapeseed oil to improve bioavailability.

The lack of harsh chemicals in the farming and manufacturing of Harvey’s means you get all the good without the bad. However, it also means you can taste all the good, and that’s a pretty strong flavor. Fortunately, the hempy earthy taste is mitigated by the fact that you’ll only be taking 4 – 8 drops. After 30 – 90 seconds, the bitterness is gone.

As for the effects, we found Harvey’s to be among the most effective CBD tinctures for stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Perhaps thanks to the extreme concentration of this tincture, the stress reduction was noticeable almost instantly, like a sudden change of perspective.

We recommend Harvey’s for people who travel and need relief fast, but not for people who can’t stand the taste of hemp.

Harvey’s CBD Healing Salve (500mg, 30ml) Review

Harvey’s full spectrum healing salve arrived in an adorable yet modern one ounce amber jar. With a black plastic lid, Harvey’s white labels on the top and sides are another example of Harvey’s simple yet striking package design.

With a twist of the wrist, we opened the jar to find a yellow waxy looking substance. As soon as we touched the salve, it seemed to magically melt into a thin oil, emitting floral and herbal scents.

Fortunately, Harvey’s never uses dyes or artificial fragrances as these can contain harmful chemicals. Instead, the salve is the natural color of its base ingredients: olive oil, beeswax, coconut oil, and of course full spectrum hemp flower oil with 500mg of CBD. And it gets its scent and mild tingling sensation from all-natural lavender and peppermint essential oils.

Those aren’t just the highlights of the ingredients list; that’s the whole thing! This moisturizing salve uses CBD and lavender to calm the body and mind. Coconut oil and olive oil help keep skin hydrated and nourished and beeswax locks the ingredients in so they can help you heal.

We use this wonderful salve for inflammation, arthritis, joint pain, rheumatism, muscle tension, sports injuries, and even as a hand lotion for dry, chapped skin.

    My husband has on and off foot pain due to early-onset arthritis and used some of the Harvey’s salve I had – took his pain level from a 6 to a 3 within 20 minutes. Made us true believers!
