Have you ever wanted to smell like marijuana without the hassle of getting and being high? If so, Dr. Bronner’s has you covered (pun absolutely intended). Soap mavens Dr. Bronner’s, in collaboration with the non-profit Sun+Earth Certified, released a limited-edition cannabis scented soap in time for the holidays.
The limited-edition soap was released to support a crowdfunding campaign for new consumer education and to promote Sun+Earth’s regenerative organic cannabis standard. They’re a non-profit that certifies cannabis grown by farmers using three rules; environmentally friendly cultivation, human empowerment, and community engagement.
“We are grateful for Dr. Bronner’s support of our Sun+Earth Certified campaign, and hope this effort will significantly grow our regenerative organic cannabis community,” Andrew Black, executive director of Sun+Earth Certified, said in a press release. “Consumers are increasingly committed to making sure their cannabis products are not only healthy for their bodies and free of toxic chemicals but also cultivated in a model that gives back to the Earth and farm communities.”

With cannabis sales having become legal in a large portion of the country, commercial cannabis farming is now a booming industry. Unfortunately, the industry has not been immune to many of the ecologically unfriendly practices that follow large-scale commercial farming. In response, many environmentally conscious farmers have incorporated organic farming practices into their business models.
According to Think Progress, cannabis is the country’s most energy-intensive crop, largely because around a third of cannabis cultivation in the United States currently takes place in indoor warehouses — a process that requires intense amounts of lighting, ventilation, cooling, and dehumidifying.
“Dr. Bronner’s is passionate about drug-policy reform and ending cannabis prohibition at the federal level. We’re also deeply engaged in the global movement for regenerative organic agriculture, against industrial chemical agriculture,” Dr. Bronner’s CEO David Bronner said. “In alignment with those values, the Sun+Earth Certified program addresses systemic problems in the cannabis industry, which is dominated by energy-intensive indoor operations and practices that rely on toxic chemical fertilizers rather than regenerative models that rely on sunlight and healthy living soil. We need to support regenerative organic cannabis farmers and their communities that are being displaced by industrialized cannabis.”
Dr. Bronner’s Sun+Earth Cannabis Scented Bar Soap is only available to those who support the campaign.The soap contains Dr. Bronner’s legacy formula, scented with terpenes from regenerative organic hemp grown at East Fork Cultivars in Takilma, Oregon, according to the company.
“Though Sun+Earth Certified farms and brands produce both medicinal and recreational cannabis products in states where cannabis prohibition has been lifted, Dr. Bronner’s Sun+Earth Cannabis Scented Bar Soap does not contain cannabinoids and is not subject to federal law prohibiting ‘marijuana,’” the non-profit explained in its press release.
So, no the soap won’t get you high, but no one said you can’t enjoy a fine organic cannabis product after taking a shower! The campaign runs through December 20, 2020.
