Craft Beer Drops (750mg actives/30ml)

Regular price $49.95

These drops are made with Hops oil and CO2 and have 750 mg of actives per 30 ml.  The hops oils are also rich in alpha-humulene (aka alpha-caryophyllene) and beta-caryophyllene which are well known anti-inflammatory terpenes.   We want people to understand the powerful effects of hops and alpha-humulene and beta-caryophylle not only internally but for topical use and pain relief.  Beta-caryophyllene is well known in other essential oils like copaiba and it's great anti-inflammatory but alpha-humulene is even more powerful. There are several recent research articles of interest concerning alpha-humulene, here are just a few:
