Hop Drops (750mg actives/30ml)

Regular price $49.95

Formally called Craft Beer Drops because the aroma is that of a nice craft IPA, these drops made with Hop CO2 have 750 mg of actives per 30 ml.  The hops CO2 is also rich in alpha-humulene and beta-caryophyllene which are well known anti-inflammatory terpenes.   We changed the name because we want people to understand the powerful effects of hops and alpha-humulene for topical use.  You just use a few drops on the skin in the area of interest and rub in like a suntan lotion and the relief is almost instant .  There are several recent research articles of interest concerning alpha-humulene, here are just a few:
