Wellness can often seem overwhelming. With each new trend, gadget, and routine promising better health, knowing what truly works is challenging.

At Dragon Hemp, we are excited about a concept that feels both revolutionary and deeply rooted in history: combining ancient herbal wisdom with the latest advancements in CBD to create formulas renowned for their efficacy. 

Our goal is to help you unlock the power of herbs.

Our Story: From Curiosity to Innovation

Our founder, Kevin Menard, LAc., embarked on a transformative journey to fully explore the power of herbs—diving deep into Sports Medicine, Acupuncture, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In this pursuit, he discovered the efficacy of combining time-honored herbs and potent botanicals, a discovery which became the cornerstone of Dragon Hemp.

Explore our Ingredients Index to learn about the unique benefits of each of our herbs.

Below, we share key findings highlighting how these innovative combinations access the power of herbs to advance your health and wellness:

NO. 1 Enhanced Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Relief Effects

Blending specific anti-inflammatory herbs with CBD offers a heightened approach to managing pain and inflammation. Turmeric, widely recognized for reducing inflammation, becomes even more effective when combined with CBD.

In our Recovery Tincture, the mix of turmeric, frankincense, myrrh, and CBD creates a potent formula that fights inflammation and relieves pain to accelerate healing.

NO. 2 Improved Calm and Stress Relief

Herbs known for their calming properties become even more effective for stress relief and mental relaxation when combined with CBD.

Combining Schisandra fruit and sour jujube seeds, both celebrated for their soothing effects, with CBD creates an enhanced solution for managing anxiety and stress.

Our Sleep Tincture illustrates this beautifully, blending these calming herbs with CBD, CBN, and THC to facilitate a deeper, more restful sleep experience.

NO. 3 Targeted Topical Relief

Topical treatments harnessing the combined power of traditional herbs and CBD are particularly effective for pain management, by specifically target areas of discomfort, offering localized relief.

Our Cooling Balm, formulated with menthol, gardenia, Chinese rhubarb, red peony root, and CBD, quickly alleviates acute pain and inflammation.

In contrast, the Warming Balm integrates CBD with camphor, clove, and additional herbs, providing consistent relief for chronic conditions, including stiff joints, muscles, and arthritis.

NO. 4 Enhanced Cognitive and Emotional Wellness

When paired with CBD, herbs can boost cognitive and emotional well-being and improve mental clarity and mood balance.

This synergy is evident in our Energy Gummies, where THCV--believed to reduce anxiety without suppressing emotion, offering a clear-headed form of relief--combines with CBC, renowned for its potential anti-inflammatory properties.

Together, this duo effectively sharpens focus and reduces distractions with a caffeine-free (and crash-free) energy boost perfect for anything from work to a workout

At Dragon Hemp, we're devoted to blending ancient herbal practices with modern CBD science. Our focus is to deepen understanding and appreciation for holistic wellness.

As we innovate, we aim to share valuable insights and solutions that enrich your health journey, harnessing the wisdom of the past and the potential of the future.
