Why You Should Read Ingredients Labels

When we were first formulating for Dr. Milo, our eyes were opened to all the toxic ingredients placed in formulation.

Reading ingredients labels is an important habit to have, both for your health and the environment. Food products are not the only household items that should be checked for ingredients. From cleaning supplies to makeup, it’s worth taking a few moments to review what you have in your home and examining the labels to see what exactly you’re bringing into your space. Let’s take a look at why reading ingredients labels is so important.

Ingredients Matter

It’s absolutely essential that you understand the difference between natural and artificial ingredients. Many manufacturers will use synthetic chemicals or preservatives with long names that can cause allergic reactions, headaches, and other ailments. By understanding what is in the products, you can make sure they are safe to use and consume. For example, if you are looking for a face wash or moisturizer it would be beneficial to look for all-natural ingredients such as aloe vera or plant oils rather than synthetic chemicals like parabens or phthalates which may be harmful when absorbed into your skin.

Environmental Impact

Another reason to read ingredient labels is because of their impact on the environment. Many chemical-laden cleaning products release toxins into our air and water systems, polluting our cities and oceans. If you want to help reduce your environmental footprint then switching out toxic cleaners and opting for more natural options is a great place to start. Natural solutions such as vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice, and essential oils can get the job done without creating any harm on our planet.

Health Benefits

Reading ingredient labels can also improve your overall health by helping you make smart decisions about what goes into your body. Knowing what goes into processed foods can help you understand how many calories and fats are present in each item so that you can make healthier choices while grocery shopping. It’s also important to pay attention to food allergies when buying packaged goods; some people may be sensitive or allergic to certain food additives such as gluten or dairy which could cause serious harm if ingested unknowingly.

Reading ingredient labels on everything from food products to cleaning supplies is an important habit that should not be overlooked. Take your time to read the backs of products.

Not only does it keep us informed of what we are putting into our bodies but it also helps us contribute towards a healthier environment by selecting natural alternatives whenever possible. Being mindful of what we bring home from the store is an easy way to ensure we are making better decisions for ourselves and our planet.

Comparing Topical Hemp Products Versus Ingestible Hemp Products

As the popularity of hemp-based products continues to steadily rise, more and more people are looking for ways to incorporate it into their daily wellness routines. However, one of the main questions many people have is what are the differences between topical hemp products vs ingestible hemp products that your liver has to process? Let’s explore further.

Topical Hemp Products

Topical hemp products are designed to be used externally. Some popular topical forms of hemp-based products can include lotionss, salves, creams and even bath bombs. These items are applied directly onto the skin in order to target any aches or pains you may be dealing with. The effects from topicals typically hit within minutes and last for 4-6 hours on average. However, some users report feeling relief for up to 8 hours after using a topical product.

Dr. Milo’s Topical Relief Lotion is a fast-absorbing, full-spectrum NANO CBD/CBN/CBG formula. It contains all plant-derived ingredients, that offer reduced inflammation and relaxation.  It will absorb into the skin within seconds, work within minutes, and last approximately 2-4 hours. We use a NANO, full-spectrum hemp for higher potency, and faster absorption. Our unisex essential oil-based scent won’t stain your clothes so use all over your body. We like it on the insides of our wrists to soothe anxiety and on our temples for migraine relief. Massage into your aches and feel the relief.

Our Relief Lotion

In terms of effectiveness, topicals have been known to provide a localized effect but not much else beyond that. This means that if you’re looking for something that can provide relief from specific pain points such as a sore knee or an aching back, then topicals could be just what you’re looking for. The plus of using a high quality Relief Lotion such as ours, is that it absorbs directly into the affected area and doesn’t pass through your bloodstream so you liver isn’t processing the substance.

Ingestible Hemp Products

In comparison to topical hemp products, ingestible forms such as tinctures and edibles work differently because they must first pass through your body’s digestive system before taking effect. This means that it will take longer for these types of products to kick in (30 minutes – 2 hours) but once they do they will typically produce effects that last anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on how much was consumed and how sensitive someone is towards certain cannabinoids found in hemp extract. These types of products tend to produce more widespread effects which makes them ideal for treating chronic conditions like anxiety or insomnia.

If you’re wanting something that provides localized relief from pain points then look no further than topicals whereas if you’re wanting something that can help with systemic issues like anxiety or fatigue then ingestible should be your go-to option. Ultimately it all boils down to personal preference so make sure you experiment with both options before deciding which one works best for you.


Making Our Planet a Better Place, One Hemp Plant at a Time

When we think of sustainability and environmentalism, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. It can be hard to know where to start and how your individual efforts can add up. But every effort counts, especially when you join forces with an organization like 1% for the Planet or Regeneration International. That’s why our hemp company is proud to be part of both groups and make a positive contribution to the planet in the process.

What Is 1% for the Planet?

1% for the Planet is an organization that connects businesses committed to environmental sustainability with non-profits that are making a difference in their communities. They believe that businesses have an obligation to give back, which is why they encourage companies to donate 1% of their profits towards environmental protection and preservation initiatives. As members, this is something we’re proud of being a part of.

What Is Regeneration International?

Regeneration International (RI) is an organization dedicated to promoting sustainable agriculture worldwide. The group works closely with farmers and scientists from around the world who are focused on regenerative land management practices that help promote soil health and reduce climate change. We are proud partners of RI because we love what they stand for—and because it makes a big difference in how we run our hemp business.

How Can You Help?

You can sign up as a member to show your support, purchase products from brands that are part of 1% for the Planet or Regeneration International, or even donate directly if you wish!

The Advantages of Starting a Woman Owned, Family Run Small Business


Starting a family-run small business has all the rewards you can imagine if managed properly. With the rise of digital tools and platforms, entrepreneurs have access to more resources than ever before. However, starting a woman owned small business comes with its own unique set of advantages. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits and how they can help your business succeed in today’s economy.

Increased Support Networks

When we started Dr. Milo, our woman owned small business, we gained access to networks of other like-minded women that you would not otherwise have access to. This could be beneficial for networking opportunities, finding mentors or even just having someone to talk to who understands what you are going through as an entrepreneur. Women-only or female-centric networks also provide invaluable advice and resources that may not be available elsewhere and can be invaluable for success in the early stages of your business.

Family Involvement

Starting a family run small business allows for increased involvement from family members who may not normally have the opportunity to contribute significantly to the business’s success. This could include anything from providing financial assistance during the initial startup phases to helping out with day-to-day operations such as marketing or customer service. Having family members involved can also provide additional morale boosts when times get tough and remind everyone why they are working so hard in the first place – to support their loved ones!

Tax Benefits

There are also tax benefits associated with owning a woman owned small business that can help offset some of the costs associated with running it. For example, many countries provide special incentives like reduced taxes or government grants specifically targeted towards female entrepreneurs, which can make running your business much easier in the long run. It is important to research any tax benefits available in your area as they could potentially save you money when it comes time to file taxes each year!

Starting a woman owned, family run small business comes with several advantages that can increase your chances for success in today’s economy. From increased support networks and family involvement to tax benefits and more, there are countless reasons why this type of venture may be right for you. It is important to do your research before taking on such an endeavor but if done correctly, it can be highly rewarding both financially and personally. We Started Dr. Milo Hemp years ago with a dream to create with more women owned businesses and we’d love to hear from you. Reach out to us today!

Working out with Dr. Milo Relief Lotion

Way to go! You’re sore from a workout that pushed you to your limits and maybe you ran just a bit longer or upped up the reps this time. You’re feeling it everywhere. Perhaps a tight neck the next morning or a slightly pulled muscle from pushing it a little too far. This happens to all of us and because you’re in tune with your body, you know that aiding in recovery is essential. By Using Dr. Milo’s Topical Relief Lotion, you’re reducing inflammation for faster recovery to get back into your routine with less soreness and pain.

Why you should work out with us

We created this lotion as an alternative to pain relief and quickly realized from years of trials and customer feedback that because we loaded our formula up with so many great ingredients, the usage of our lotion became super vast. Hemp + Arnica Montana reduce swelling, bruising and sprains. Arnica Montana is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It contains a wide array of inflammation-fighting plant compounds such as sesquiterpene lactones, flavonoids, and phenolic acids which all help with pain management. Our Full Spectrum Hemp (cannabis sativa) targets pain receptors in the endocannabinoid system and tells them to relax.

How it works:

When we work out, inflammation is produced by repetitive motion, damaging our muscles. After, our bodies repair these muscles, and they grow back even stronger. Inflammation comes into play during the repair process when our bodies increase blood flow to the affected area to replenish oxygen, fuel muscles and clear waste.

Sometimes we push it a little too far, and that’s ok. Our bodies are built for recovery but why not add an aid in this recovery to take the edge off and recover faster. We use our Relief Lotion Before and after workouts. We’d found reduction in swelling, more range of motion in our joints and less pain comes a higher stamina. Our customer feedback for post workout recovery has been amazing. Take their word for it:

Take it from these guys:

Toi J: “It works like magic after I’ve hit the gym hard & have sore muscles. It’s the best relief.”

Robert T: “I use Dr. Milo daily as a part of my recovery routine. Love it. It’s nice to have that little bit of help when you’re healing up and getting ready for your next mission.
