Discover how this product will benefit the Native American community as it simultaneously helps consumers with insomnia, skin irritation, and pain relief. Watch, learn, and be well.

The Evo HempX was created in partnership with Alex White Plume of the Oglala Sioux tribe of the Pine Ridge Reservation.  This formula is grounding, energizing, and has a time-release aspect to the effects. The effects last 6-8 hours.

This product has a terpene-rich, CO2-extracted, full-spectrum hemp oil and hemp seed oil.  The terpenes and hemp oils create an earthy, natural, cherry, pine flavor.

I ate breakfast before taking 1.5 droppers of this oil. My preferred dose is around 20mg when trying a CO2 extracted product for the first time. The effects slowly started and went into full bloom 45 minutes to 1 hour after taking it. The main effect that immediately stood out was that of feeling extremely grounded. My eyes and brain felt relaxed and cooled down, which is probably due to the presence of cannabigerol (CBG, a cannabinoid which promotes homeostasis and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent) and cannabinol (CBN, a cannabinoid with pain-relief, anti-insomnia, and bone growth properties) in the full-spectrum hemp extract.

The HempX formula grounded my body, mind, and spirit into the daily flow and helped me focus as the chaos of the day passed me by. For a daily formula this a good choice because of the time-release effects, calming energy, and because every sale supports the building of the Oglala Sioux economy and hemp industry. You can feel this mission in the consumer friendly pricing of the Evo HempX products. They want you to support the special mission and the Native American struggle, as well as the hemp movement in general. Heal yourself, feel the history, and support a culture. The Evo HempX 500mg tincture stands out in the sea of products we’ve reviewed, and we have to take our hats off and give “RESPECT.”

One characteristic of full-spectrum, CO2-extracted hemp oil is that it absorbs over time and the full power of the effects can be felt 24 hours after taking it.

Some hemp-extract products create a quick onset of the effects by mixing the hemp oil extract with other carrier oils like MCT, coconut oil, and any oils the body can digest. The HempX formula uses hemp seed oil.

What’s nice about hemp seed oil is that it’s nutritious and the body absorbs it a little slower. This is exactly what gives the Evo HempX formula the pleasant time-release effect. This is a surprise and something folks who work in professional atmospheres will like. It will also appeal to nutrition-focused people who enjoy the physical effects of adaptogens (substances in herbal medicine that encourage homeostasis). This formula feels like taking a great adaptogen with the added bonus of terpenes.

The Evo HempX formula has a natually-occuring blend of 30 terpenes that help deliver the calm sense of grounding relaxation. There are over 200 terpenes in the hemp plant; 60 of the most common are being studied for health benefits such as appetite suppression, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties, muscle cramp relief, insomnia relief, anti-inflammation, anti-anxiety, bronchial dilation, and anti-fungal.

Another use I found for the Evo HempX formula was as a skincare product. I have a couple small skin spots and irritated areas that never seem to heal. I’ve found that some oils work better than others, but this one works well. I just use a small drop on each spot. After five days of this use, the skin spots/dry spots are starting to go away. I think it works because the HempX has moisturizing hemp seed oil and full-spectrum hemp extract with terpenes – all good things for skin conditions.

In short, you can feel this one. It’s grounding and focusing. This is a good daily formula for all the right reasons and it has a couple bonus skincare uses.

Average dose:

1 dropper is 12.5mg. This is a good starting dose. If this is too much, a 1/2 dropper is a good daily dose to keep cannabinoids in the system to help inflammation. Maximum dose effects: Too relaxed and you’ll want to take a nap (30mg and over is the starting dose to get the sleepy effects of this formula).


Very affordable; $29.99 for 500mg (on sale now for $23.99).  One of the best priced and most effective products with naturally-occurring terpenes.
