Maine Hempworks is a small, hemp-based business focusing on personal care products; lip balms and soaps, and we have an eye toward expanding our product line into a variety of other areas. We’re working toward some day farming our own ingredients to create a vertically integrated manufacturing process. Our goal is to become a company synonymous with quality, handmade, hemp-derived products and Maine-made craftsmanship.
We have chosen to focus on the use of hemp as a primary ingredient for its versatility in a wide variety of products.
The moisturizing quality of hemp seed oil, a high percentage of essential fatty acids (omega-3 & omega-6) and vitamins (Vitamin B1, B2, B6, D & E) and its unique chemical composition allows for quick and easy absorption into the skin.
Hemp seed is also a more digestible protein than meat, eggs, cheese, animal milk or any other high protein food and can be eaten by those unable to tolerate nuts, gluten, lactose or sugar. There are no known allergies to hemp foods.
A hemp field produces a very large bulk of plant material in a short period of time. All products made solely from hemp fibre are biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. As such, they are easy on landfills. Hemp planting reduces deforestation and improves the soil upon which it is grown.
We’re an environmentally and socially conscious company seeking to educate consumers who may be somewhat apprehensive about hemp based products due to confusion about the differences between marijuana and hemp. We’d like for the public to understand the incredible diversity of the hemp plant and to continue our own learning into the old and new uses of a reemerging hemp industry.
Maine Hempworks is based out of Naples, Maine, located near the beautiful shores of Long Lake and Sebago Lake. We appreciate the natural beauty of this state and it is that beauty that serves as our inspiration when it comes to creating all of our products.
