Nestled in the Pacific Northwest, the Mystic Roots brand is an Oregon-based name that’s dedicated to pure hemp genetics. Their products are cultivated with the strictest organic farming practices in order to maintain the integrity of the original herb. And the result is pure, uncontaminated hemp that’s free from dangerous chemicals, pesticides, and growth hormones that might alter its chemistry.
Mystic Roots offers products that are divided into four different categories, and maintains their emphasis on the potential ‘healing’ benefits of hemp. That said, many of their products are formulated for use in daily life, helping their users achieve optimal wellness with the supplemental assistance of all-organic hemp that’s as close to nature as possible.
With a name like Mystic Roots, there’s really no surprise as to why this strain has such little information on the web. Aside from being based in Oregon, the brand doesn’t offer up a lot of information about who they are, how they process their product, and everything else. What we do know however is that Mystic Roots goes the extra mile to get certification for their products.
Many of their hemp flower and canna-based products are certified by Dragonfly Earth Medicine (DEM) as pure organic. That means that their line-up includes some items that are 100% all-natural, untouched by chemicals and synthetic growth hormones and fertilizers, allowing the plant to achieve full genetic expression without the drawbacks of human intervention.
Check the Mystic Roots product catalogue and you’ll find four different categories – albeit not indicated on their website. These include raw flower, oils and tinctures, skincare products, and hemp gear. Needless to say, their raw hemp flower takes the cake as their flagship product, offering buyers a range of options all under one virtual roof.
Their hemp flower picks are reasonably priced, with a gram of trimmed hemp flower averaging $5 per gram. Other options include 3.5 grams, 1/2 ounce, and 1 ounce variants. Their bestsellers include their hand-trimmed Lifter strain and their Cherry Picker which are both Dragonfly Earth Medicine certified.
For the budget-conscious buyers, Mystic Roots offers DEM-certified shakes and trim which are left over from the trimming process of their hemp flower. On average, an ounce of trim costs about $25. Other picks include pre-rolls, smalls, and sample packs for those who want to find out what every unique strain brings to the table.
On top of their hemp flower products, they also toss in a few unique formulations for everyday use. Many of these products come from other brands including Lifted Lotus, Kinship Farms, Big Muddy Hemp, and Rusty Acres. Their Lifted Lotus products are particularly popular across their market, offering everything from tinctures and oils to bath soaks and healing salves.
To be perfectly honest, the Mystic Roots website could use a lot of work. The ultra-utilitarian aesthetic leaves much to be desired and the absolute lack of brand info makes their personality fall flat. Across the bottom of the header banner, a menu bar shows you the various categories of products available. But even then, the categories are too generalized, so it can be tough to find the specific item you’re interested in. For example, their ‘organic hemp products’ category includes pretty much every product in their catalogue.
Another thing that makes browsing the website a bit of a chore is the lack of a filter option. It would have been nice to be able to sift through results with a search filter, especially because the product categories seem a little counterintuitive. But the website only lets you sort the results you get.
Browsing on the website is equally cumbersome whether on desktop or mobile. We also noticed that the brand doesn’t serve up an FAQs page, which could have helped clear out any smoke or confusion that buyers have without having to reach out through the contact us page.
Mystic Roots isn’t exactly what you might call a brand that’s big on discounts and promotional offers. For the most part, there’s not a sign of any promotional offer on their website, but they do have a newsletter that you can sign up for to get the latest information on their sale offers. That’s also another thing about the brand – they don’t have a sale or clearance category where you can browse marked down products.
For the most part, the best way to get a discount on the website is by following their social media pages. Mystic Roots is a relatively active brand on both Instagram and Facebook where they post tons of updates and information on upcoming sales and promotional offers for your benefit. Checking back on their website especially during well-known sale seasons might also help you get your hands on a discount on a price cut every now and then.
The Mystic Roots company ships all across the United States, but also notes that some of their products may be restricted for shipment in certain areas. As to what these products are and why they might not be eligible for shipping to specific US addresses, the brand doesn’t make it entirely clear. Shipping fees are calculated based on the weight of the products you’re buying, and will be rounded off to the next full pound in case of any decimals.
If for any reason you find that the product you purchase isn’t up to standards, the Mystic Roots brand accepts returns within 7 days of receipt. Refunds are granted on a case to case basis, and are typically allowed for most unopened products. In case the company was at fault for the return like in the case of damaged, defective, or incomplete products, they offer to pay for the shipping fees both ways. For the most part, Mystic Roots requires up to 2 weeks to be able to process any requests for returns.
Mystic Roots offers a range of choices from a handful or brands, but mostly touts an all-organic line-up that promises to give you hemp products that are as close to nature as possible. With some of their hemp flower and canna-based formulations certified by Dragonfly Earth Medicine, it’s not hard to trust their guarantee to deliver the highest quality organic hemp in the market.
Even then, there are a few downsides to buying from the brand, and those mostly center on the lack of identity and website interface. In need of a well-deserved upgrade, the Mystic Roots website could attract potentially more buyers if it were a little less cluttered and confusing. On top of that, perhaps offering more information on the brand could help build up an identity which Mystic Roots heavily lacks.
Nonetheless, if you don’t really care about the bells and whistles and only want to get your hands on good product, they might be worth a shot. Their dedication to all natural formulations and minimally processed hemp flower helps to secure them a spot as a trusted source for organic picks that are as close to natural hemp as it gets.
